Singapore Airlines Limited, who are incidentally, Australia's most freuqent visitor has 3 daily flights to and from Sydney and London.

LHR - SYD: 21 hours and 45 minutes to 23 hours and 25 minutes

SYD - LHR: I'm working on it as Expedia can't display SIA only routings. They are too full



Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

"Kangaroo route" normally refers to Qantas as per the 707s and Connies.  Smile

I agree with NZ767. Next we'll be having "kangaroo routes" on KAL via ICN, or UAL via SFO...

Coachman,
QF's Indian Ocean services to JNB are known as the Wallaby Route. i.e., a long hop but not as long a hop as the Kangaroo Route.

In the olden days (Connies & later 707s) the Kangaroo Route had stops such as:
SYD-Darwin-SIN
SYD-Brisbane-Darwin -SIN
SYD-PER-CGK-SIN
then
SIN-KUL-Colombo-BOM-Teheran-Istanbul/Athens
SIN-BKK-Calcutta/New Delhi-Karachi-Cairo
then
Istanbul-Athens-London
Athens-London
Cairo-Rome-London or Rome-Frankfurt-London

For a while later routings included SYD-PER-Colombo-Karachi-etc.

Don't forget QF was a RTW airline then so continuing westwards it was London-NY-SFO-HNL-Nandi-SYD.

When QF's N. Am HQ moved from SFO to Tuscon and LAX became the Pacific terminus the westward RTW route became London-Bermuda-MEX-Acapulco-Papeete-AKL-SYD.

PGF,

I knew it was the Wallaby route, I was just saying, the way things were going, then people would be adding LHR-JNB-SYD as part of the Kangaroo route, which is obviously isn't.

I know that in the 70s Qantas dubbed the Johannesburg service the "Champagne Route" as it was one of their most profitable.
