Longest nonstop in distance was Etihad 789 BNE-AUH at 7463mi, followed by JNB-HKG on Cathay 77W at 6632mi

Longest nonstop in time though were V Australia 77W MEL-JNB at 16 hours, due to the flight having to take a more northern route past PER and MRU

Longest same-plane service which would then be longest distance and time was DXB-SIN-BNE-AKL on EK 77W, total 8877mi, flying time 19h15, total time with stops about 22hours.

Longest flight for me, February 2004 Singapore Airlines Boeing 747-400 from LHR to SIN, just short of 14 hours but one of the best flights I have been on.

Shortest flight for me, October 2011 Qatar Airways Boeing 777-300ER from DOH to DXB, just short of 40 minutes and I'm still amazed that QR used a T7 on such a short route and it was less then half full!, does anybody on the forum know if QR ever used the A380 on the short hop from DOH to DXB?.

My longest flight (TLV - JFK) is only 5685 miles, LY 747-400.

But a pilot's union action caused the flying time to last 12 hrs 40 min. At that time, El Al pilots were receiving a bonus for flights above twelve hours. My previous flights on that route (DL, UA, and even LY) had never lasted so long. But shortly after this flight, I read about the union action, and said 'ahah!' That particular dispute between the union and management has since been resolved.

1) PVG-ORD(-LGA) AA business class 772/738. Actually quite manageable.
2) (LGA-)ORD-PEK AA business class 738/772.
3) JFK-HND-JFK AA 772 business class (was nice to fly into HND but do to the nighttime slots the flight landed at like 11pm and departure was 6am. Kind of brutal)
Those were all 5 years ago or less, now for some ones from longer ago.
4) EWR-TLV UA 772 economy class. I was still young and had boundless energy so I mamanged just fine. Also it was only the eastbound so flight wasn't too long.
5) JFK-EZE-JFK AA 763 economy class
Everything else has been less then 5000 miles.
Notable mention:
CM JFK-PTY-UIO and back. That was brutal in the eco section of two 738s, but I was thankful it wasn't SFO-PTY-MVD.

No they never did. EK did though for a few minths before the travel ban. Or did the travel ban happen before they started?

My longest non-stop flight was from SIN to EWR on 16th January 2008 in Singapore Airlines Airbus A340-500 (9V-SGD). The distance was 15345 km, taking 17 hours 20 minutes.

My longest flight was on 17th October 2011 when I flew in Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-300 (9V-SWS) from SIN to IAH via DME - 17947 km. This took precisely 24 hours and 1 minute.

Fully laden A380 on a hot day in Dubai, that was one ponderous take off.

You sure that was a DC-10? KL has operated MD-11s to SFO in the past...not sure about the DC-10. They inaugurated LAX service in 1979 with DC-10s...not sure when SFO was started but I know they were flying there in the 90s.

You were on it...just checking.

Way back in 2007, SIN-HKG-SFO on a SQ B744. The HKG-SFO was the longest I've been on yet - around 12 hours.

Booked to fly BOM-HKG-YYZ next week on CX.
HKG-YYZ leg is 15+hrs (7810 mi GC distance). If not for the 5 hr transit at HKG, that would a brutal couple of flights.

No idea, maybe strong headwinds ? It was back in 2002 and was timetabled as taking just over 10 hours.

That's what I would call a nice surprise. Extra air time is always welcome to me. My longest flight so far was on Air France. In one of their A380's from Singapore to Paris. 6,667 miles in precisely 13:00 hours.

ATL -> ICN: 7,177 on KE 77W in J class

JFK <-> TLV: 5,671 on DL 777 in J class
ATL <-> FCO: 5,030 on DL A330 & 764 in J class (4x times)

All distances in miles

I've been fortunate to not do any of those in Y class. Only flown ATL <-> CDG in Y class years ago; all 34 flights over 3,000 miles in the past three years have been in J class.
The above post is my opinion. Don't like it? Don't read it.

8454 km / 5253 miles

Done it twice on VS and once on BA - it's a full 10 hours and a long slog in economy. Usually with mates so it's doable, but any longer and I think I'd consider an upgrade, even if only to premium economy.

Well I do Sydney -dallas on QF regularly, which is 8578 nm in a A388. It's hardly fun. But longest time wise, on December 1, 2016, my QF8 flight ran for 17 hours and 45 minutes flight time. The longest time the captain has flown in forty years of aviation and the longest time I've ever flown.

Longest flight by distance would be CLT-FRA at 7077km (3821nm)
However we had some strong tailwind on that flight so the longest by flight time actually goes to the westbound part of the trip, FRA-PHL at just under 8:30hrs but only 6357km (3434nm)

I am on QF7/8 this coming December and January. Last time I was on it was on a B744. Looking forward to comparing the difference.

Apparently my longest single leg is IAD-NRT and return, 6,753 miles on a UA 772 in J. Longest in Y is AKL-SFO on an NZ 772, 6,517 miles. After those (and similar flights, e.g., LAX-AKL), it's a lot of various 4,000- low 5,000s mile flights (ranging from IAD-FRA to SFO-NRT).

Only done one long haul trip as an adult.

LHR to PVG - British Airways 777-200ER (G-YMMA)
PVG to LHR - British Airways 787-9 (G-ZBKB)

Also flew LHR to JNB and back as a child with Virgin. It was on an A340 but other than that i've know idea.

Hoping to add a lot more to that list.

Your longest flight

Thu Jul 06, 2017 5:36 am

Good to observe there are fellow travellers doing long haul flights,sure beats the old milk runs of yesteryear. Over the years I have enjoyed the following: Syd/Lax PA 747SP, Syd/Lax QF 747/380, Syd/DFW QF 747/380 ,JFK/Lax/Syd, Syd/DXB/Lhr and the most interesting one was Syd/Syd to the Antarctic and back. Oh the memories and the joy of flight! Enjoy your next flight folks.

Mine would have to be HND-PEK-JFK on a China Airlines A330 and 747-8i, 8,140 miles just last month. Really wasn't that bad except that the PEK-JFK segment was about the most turbulent flight I've ever been on. Just non-stop for 14 hours.

Also that approach into PEK is kind of crazy.

Longest was SYD-AUH with Virgin Australia which was around 14.5 hrs, similar in duration but shorter in distance to MNL-LHR which I did last year.

My shortest was probably 15mins or so.. GCI to JER.
