I have a question....
If You were on a Transatlantic route numerously, SAME DESTINATIONS, different aircraft, have you noticed the differences between the flight time? Or if you don't have any, what was the longest flight that you ever had?

Over 12 hours nonstop from Amsterdam to Singapore.

When you count longest traveltime from point of departure to point of arrival, I'd say DPS - SIN - ZRH - AMS (22 hours).

I have done LAX-HKG three times, SFO-SYD two times. and Tokyo Narita-Los Angeles two times as well.

LAX-HKG all 747-400's Flying times were 14 hours 26 minutes, 14 hours and 43 minutes and 14 hours and 50 minutes

SFO-SYD first time was 14 hours and 33 minutes. this past june the flight was supposed to be 14 hours and 20. however we took a 50 minute diversion to Brisbane Australia thus making my longest flight ever of 15 hours and 10 minutes

NRT-LAX 9 hours and 10 minutes, 9 hours and 18 minutes. those were both pretty close in timings for sure!

Hope this helps!

Cheers!
Brian

I flew with El Al 3 times to NYC and back (both EWR and JFK) in the last 3 years;

LY001 (like my name...), Summer of 98', it took 11.00 hours by a 742 (4X-AXQ).

LY001, Summer of 00', it took 11.20 hours by a 744 (4X-ELC).

And Last July, LY019, took 11.30 hours by a 772 (4X-ECA), we had to wait 10 min' in the air before landing in EWR due to traffic.

On the way back:
EWR-TLV, July 98', LY018, 744, only 9 hours!!!
JFK-TLV, Aug 00', LY022, 744, 9.15 hours.
JFK-TLV, July 01', LY014, 744, 9.25 hours.

To B737-700:

Were you also flying Lufthansa to EZE, or was it another airline?
I must admit that Lufthansa had a very air-minded and air-enthusiast-friendly attitude when it came to inviting passengers into the cockpit. I have been several times in the cockpit of LH's 747 during landing, but the Buenos Aires approach was very particular as it was during the early morning hours in darkness.

 Big thumbs up

Sadly enough those things will be over for a very long time after the deliberate crashing of the airliners in the U.S.

My longest flight was from STR via CDG and LAX to PPT (24h15 block time) and back (23H10). Yes, the B747-400 of Air France was significantly faster than AOM-Air Liberté's A340-300 that left LAX just before us.
