SIA Cargo Aukcland - Dubai Non-stop?

Sun Dec 10, 2000 3:44 pm

Just looking at the latest SIA timetable. in the cargo section, I noticed about this one.

SQ7377 (operates every saturday, opb 744F)
departs from Auckland at 0330 LT to Dubai non-stop arrive at 1300LT and departs at 1400LT, arrive at Singapore 0105+1LT.

Now, can a 744F fly 18hr30mins? (on Auckland - Dubai )

or does it have any technical stops?

Yes, a 744 can fly that long, it would depend on the load and altitude that the plane flys at.

Departs Auckland 0330 local = 1830-1 Dubai
Arrives Dubai 1300 local
Time elapsed = 18h30min

Departs Dubai 1400 local
Arrives Singapore 0105+1 local = 1605 Dubai
Time elapsed = 2h5min

(taking Dubai = Auckland - 9hours)

Jiml1126... looks like you've messed up something. I don't think the plane can make it from Dubai to Singapore in 2 hours.
