Kinda scarry that I know how long a flight was down to the second, huh? I timed it. It was fun to get to see the flight progress over the time.

Quoting StarAlliance (Reply 10):
HKG-EWR(nonstop)
Continental B777

An extremely LOOOONG 16h40min(just flying, excluding all the taxing and waiting, otherwise it will be 17h30min)

Same thing. They're long and boring, especially in Y. Tag another 1 hour on top of that (plus transfer time) from BOS to EWR, and it makes you veeeeeery tired. 

Also ORD - HKG on UA, about 15 hrs.
And then the many many times I've flown LAX-HKG or SFO-HKG, each about 13-14 hours, depending on the time of the year, etc.

One time a YVR-HKG flight took 14 hours thanks to very unfavourable winds over Japan.

Since we've resurrected this post from 2001, I'll chip in as well.

LAX-HKG CX 744 probably something like 14.5 hours
ZRH-LAX SR M11 with delays, took about 13 hours in the plane
SYD-LAX QF 744 about 13 hours

and this isn't one of the longest, but given how long it should be...

BEY-LCA CY 320 8 hours!!!!!!!! with diversion to PFO

Hmmm, there's another one I forgot

BOS-ORD -- 8 hours!!!! or something like that. Groundstop in ORD forcing us to hold around the airport, then diverted to DTW to refuel, waiting in line for the refueling and the subsequent take off, waiting in line to land at ORD....

It was a hellish flight.
