The World's Longest Flights

Here is a nice work that shows the world's longest flights as of January 2016. Nowadays, MEB3 airlines, Emirates, Qatar Airways, and Etihad, compete for another title, the world's longest route.

Qatar Airways is planning to launch the Doha - Auckland route (9.034miles/18,5hrs), while Emirates announced Dubai - Panama City link (8.588miles/17,5hrs). On the other hand, Singapore is planning to reinstate its legendary Singapore - New York flight (9.500miles/19hrs) with Airbus A350-900ULR aircraft.

You may visit the following links to read a bit more about this new battle; Yahoo Finance, Skift, and Statista. I also heard that Turkish Airlines is searching for an aircraft to establish an air link between Istanbul and Australia, the only continent that TK doesn't serve.

My personal limit for a comfortable and healthy flight in economy class is around 6-7hrs. In premium cabins, this is around 12hrs. The idea of spending 18-19hrs or even more in a flight where you have limited space makes me nervous.

Have a nice and short flight!
