Longest Nonstop For BA

Thu Aug 16, 2001 3:00 am

Like the title suggest, what is the longest daily nonstop flight operated by British Airways and with which airplane? Also what is the longest 747-400 flight they operate? Thanks.

i don´t have a BA schedule in front of me but i would guess SIN-LHR could be the longest nonstop flight, served by 744s.

If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

Yeah, I'd have to say LHR-SIN on the 747-400 too.

Okay, but what do you think is the shortest daily BA nonstop?
Maybe one of those scotish inter-island routes, operated by Loganair? I've been to Glasgow in June, and it was really cool to see those small aircraft in BA Chatham colours (still, I prefer Ndebele!)

I have heard that it is LGW-EZE (Buenos Aires) which was flown with B747-400 aircraft until March, when they changed to B777-200.

Yep, I fly LGW-EZE twice a year, and it's just under 13 hours.

Not sure if it's the longest though-maybe someone else has the current timetable.

Definitely a flight to try and get upgraded on!  Big grin
