World’s longest commercial flight starts tonight
quote:

A group of human test subjects are about to board a Qantas Boeing Dreamliner in New York for a flight no airline has completed before. Almost 20 gruelling hours later, they’ll land in Sydney, having conquered the longest non-stop commercial flight in history. It will be tough, but that’s the idea behind this weekend’s test flight — the physical and emotional toll of the ultra-long-haul flight will be recorded as part of Qantas’ bold long-haul project, Project Sunrise.


What’s the longest flight you’ve been on?

I don’t think I’d land a sane person after 20 hours on a plane.

14 hours to Melbourne. Not as bad as I thought it would be. 8 hours sleeping with a sleep aid.

Longest I have done was Houston to London, which was probably 10 hours.

Any trans-Pacific flight is likely to be far longer than that minus a stop in Hawaii.

Dubai to Dallas.....17 odd hours, had no issues. Travel to India all the time so accustomed to it. It's all movies and food cause I rarely sleep on a plane.

A half hour on a 737 MAX.

Kidding of course.

I get to spend 20 hours without anyone bothering me? Ambien, lube and an Internet connection and I’m in.

Johannesburg to Atlanta, which according to an old flight confirmation email, clocked in at 16:15.

Second is DFW to NRT (Tokyo) at 13:45.

They have two sets of pilots for that?

No idea what hours of service rules they have but on the railroad you can't turn a wheel after being on duty for 12 hours.

Note that is on duty time. You might wait 2-3 hours for your train to show up.
