This past Thanksgiving I flew Delta from JFK-SLC (SLC was a stop before going on to PHX) on a 757-200. Then on the return trip from PHX-ATL also on Delta on a 757-200 (on the next leg of that trip ATL-JFK I got to fly on a 767-300 for the first time)

JFK to JHB on South African. About 14 hours flying time, complicated by a 1hr 44 minute delay at JFK because a driver off a "Gate Gormet" drove into the #3 engine.

UAL JFK-HKG on a 744. It was about 15h 40min. That doesn't include the six hour delay at JFK because there was a typhoon in Hong Kong; and the ten hour wait in Shenzhen, where the flight was diverted, because the Hong Kong airport was closed due to strong winds. The flight home was much more pleasant. We must have had a strong tailwind because it was "only" 14h 40min.

For me, it's SFO-TPE, which can run about 13 hours and change, depending upon winds.

HKG-EWR-HKG. On the return going West (actually, more like North and then South!) for about six hours saw nothing but ice, snow, and the occassional very cold water. Pretty neat.
