So what's the longest straight flight you've ever experienced? Today's aircraft manufacturers like Boeing and Airbus have greatly worked on improving their aircraft's range with better efficiency and that could carry more passengers. Today's new generation jets like the Boeing 777-300ER, Airbus A350, Airbus A380, and Boeing 787 have allowed airlines to launch flights that could fly passengers more than half-way around the world non-stop. Hence, no need for stop-overs which may be too costly.
We now show you the world's 15 longest non-stop flights as of today, October 23. The longest so far is Singapore Airlines's Newark to Singapore with a total flying time of up to 18 hours and 45 minutes! Yes, that's almost one whole day inside their latest Airbus A350-900ULR flying about 15,344 kilometers or 9,534 miles!
This list also does not include the 3 upcoming long haul flights of Philippine Airlines (Manila to New York), Singapore Airlines (Singapore to Los Angeles) and Air New Zealand (Chicago to Auckland).
We can just imagine the price tag of these flights though!
