|Quoting Ikramerica (Thread starter):|
With NZ now flying to LHR "both ways" they are an airline that you can fly completely around the world, and probably also the longest trip to do it.
You can also do so on SQ (if you count JFK and EWR as one place).
Are there any others? Maybe Air India?

There used to be a few - BOAC (how nice to fly a BOAC VC10 from LA to Tahiti, or Auckland to Beirut?) springs to mind, and Qantas deserve special mention for having two different routes around the world, one went via S Pacific to Acapulco, Mexico City, Bermuda, LHR; the other went via N Pacific to HNL, LAX (&/or SFO?), JFK, LHR.

CNN International's weekly travel program (CNN Business Traveller) a few hours ago featured the NZ Round the World service. It followed their reporter, Richard Quest, on NZ flights AKL-HKG-LHR-LAX-AKL, with video of their inflight service (business class flat beds) etc. They had another reporter on a HKG-London Gatwick flight of the new HKG-based low cost carrier, Oasis Hong Kong Airlines, comparing their inflight products with NZ HKG-LHR

UA use to fly a round the world flight prior to 9-11
UA001 went from LAX-HKG-DEL-LHR-JFK-LAX. UA002 was the reverse
