What Has Been Your Longest Non-stop Flight?

Sat Aug 21, 2004 8:10 pm

In my case it was either EZE-AMS (KLM B-747) or EZE-FCO (AZ MD-11). About 14 hrs, but can't remember which one was longer

Wow EZEIZA, mine have been the same!

My first flight...SCL-EZE-FCO Alitalia MD-11...then in 1999 SCL-EZE-AMS with KLM 744. I really don't know which one was longer.

I'm glad to see some of us have shared the same flights! I will beat my own record in a few days, MAD-SCL-EZE, about 18 hrs total trip on LAN. By the way, Bfr, how was the Ghana Airways experience? I've only ised them ACC-LOS, 45 min flight, and no problems, but I've hear a few things about the long haul flights, such as that they don't respect the established schedules and sometimes even leave before expected. Can you comment?
Thanx

Hi,

Mine was 9h 30mins on a Monarch Airlines DC-10-30 G-DMCA from MAN-POP. Funny really because she is now chopped in half and on public display at Manchester Airport:

My longest non stop flight is JFK to SLC. Not a very long flight at all compared to the other responses. I also flew PHX to ATL, but I think JFK to SLC is longer.

1987 or 1988, JFK-SEL-NRT. I believe it was on NWA. it took about 14 hours from JFK-SEL. and another 3 or 4 hours from SEL-NRT (re-fuel & ground time + flight time). luckily i have low blood pressure, so i fall asleep very easily on flights. i have heard that the cabins are pressurized to about 7000 feet.

downside, i don't adjust to high altitude destinations. Flagstaff, Santa Fe, Vail & Haleakala. i did not do well at any of these places, curse you altitude sickness demon!

Ezeiza:

You'll have plenty of time. Although I love SCL for the efficient, transparent, modern and clean it is, it's not a large airport.

Just remember, since you will be "in transit", after leaving the jetway you (and all the passengers) will walk a corredor. Be aware that at some point of that corredor (almost at the end), there are some advertising that says "pasajeros en transito", at right hand. If you ignore it, you will end up at the official immigration.
This corredor is at the second level of the airport (although you don't know it). If you get to see some stairs that go down, you missed it! Most of the time, LAN has some girl announcing that this is the place for transit, and they are specially oriented to Argentine passengers (you will see maaaaany).

At this "en transito" room, you'll be controlled and take another stair up to the third lever, and there you have all the gates, duty free and you can even get a massage.

The basic structure of SCL is this: 1st level: arrivals, 2nd level: jetways and airline offices, 3rd level: departures. Trust me, it's much easier than I make it sound  Big grin

But this is not your first time at SCL, right?

Nope, not my first time in SCL, but first time in transit with such a short amount of time between flights. My other transit there was a EZE-SCL-CCS-MIA but there was a 2 hr delay for my flight so I had plenty of time. Otra vez, muchas gracias! Capaz te veré en SCL?

Mine was 14 hours (on the dot!) from NRT-CDG on an Air France 744. I managed to sleep for 10 of them. Best flight I ever had.

I find it freaky that a plane can fly for that long!
and with that..cabin crew, seats for landing please.

I'm with Speedbudgie.

Longest was also LHR to SFO (7 times in all if I remember) at about 10.5 to 11 hours.
Only got the pleasure of V Port once (one of the first flights I believe), otherwise Odessy is pretty good, Arcadia SUCKS! (and I'm a huge VS fan).

Charter wise it was MAN-MCO a couple of times, Air 2000 once, I believe and Britannia. Definitely not as much fun as VS. But hey I got to see Mickey and Minnie at the end of it, although returning to MAN at 6am with about a 30 degree temperature gap is depressing (sorry MAN fans)
