Re: A long report on the longest flight in the world - Business Class on Qatar's 777-200LR Auckland to Doha

Did it again today. Just left Perth after an hour and a half stop. So, I suspect that would be a fuel issue? with strong headwinds maybe making it marginal.

Re: A long report on the longest flight in the world - Business Class on Qatar's 777-200LR Auckland to Doha

This flight did a stop over in Perth yesterday. Not sure if it was a technical issue, or a medical emergency. I thought it might have been an economy passenger who had enough :) although it seemed like that flight had 3x3x3 set up, so they were always better than the new 3x4x3 setups.
