Longest Non-stop Flight Outside U.S.

Sun Dec 21, 2003 2:42 pm

If I'm not mistaken CO has the longest non-stop flight EWR-HKG. But what is the longest outside of a U.S. carrier?
For example: From Europe, or Asia.

The Malaysian Airlines flight of JNB-KUL would have to be quite a long one, as would AKL-EZE on Aerolineas Argentinias.

Sorry, new here! ATL/JNB originating in the US. Me missing the question that COIAH99 was actually asking.

Well:

DXB/SYD is 12039km/7481mi
AKL/EZE is 10335km/6422mi

Solnabo, I didn't know that Arnie had turned California into a part of Austria already  Laugh out loud

I'd also give credit to the MNL-CDG run - I'd hate to see the climb performance on that flight! Big grin
