Re: Longest commercial flight record

Not sure mods will move my thread ... but I was wondering if anyone knows if/what there is a documented record of the longest scheduled commercial flight ever ? To be clear, not asking longest distance or longest flight schedule, or the Qantas test flight SYD-JFK. I'm wondering what was the longest...
