LAX-FRA several times in the mid-80's Always on Lufthansa, I think 747SP. Would try to get the first or second row in coach on the window side. Row one in coach faced backward with a small table that was great for playing cards. If I remember correctly, 10 hours LAX to FRA and 13 1/2 hours FRA to LAX.

CPA0830 from Hong Kong (HKG/VHHH) to New York (JFK/KJFK).

Another flight from (I believe) Chicago (ORD/KORD) to Shanghai (PVG/ZSPD) with a fuel stop in Anchorage (no deplaning) was quite long, especially due to some polar weather conditions.

Los Angeles to Singapore (LAX-SIN) SQ 37 on a A345-500. The plane is all business class, and the best business seats in the sky.

7700 odd miles and a tad over 18 hours in winter, and 17 in summer.

Check Kayak for trip duration, Delta has a flight with two stops that takes 40 hours! :(

IL-62 were great airplanes. I flew on one from Vladivostok to Moscow, 9.5 hrs.

btw, there's no such thing: "nonstop flight".... :D All airplanes do always stop-land...@ the point(city) of destination.

NOT a 747SP. LH didn't have any. The aircraft would most likely have been a 747-200. There's also possibilty of it being a DC-10.

In about 3 weeks I will do Mauritius, Johannesburg, Atlanta, Phoenix, San Luis Obispo in one go. Return about a month later with DFW added. I'm taking a day or two in J'burg on this one. Sadly only on the first and last legs will I be up front in the pointy end. Knowing this company it will probably in cattle class too.

Qantas, LAX-SYD. Thank God for in-flight entertainment. (Wish UAL could catch up on that--it's been a few years since I've been to Europe, do any of their European flights have more amenities nowadays?)

Nothing extreme, but back in the day from PRG to YYZ with CSA (Czech Airlines) Airbus A310, around 9hrs seemed like eternity :roll:

An unspectacularly flight from FRA to SIN in November 2012 using an A380 of Singapore Airlines. It was about 12 hours. Ok, not the longest offered in world, but my longest up to date, even longer than my many done flights to Namibia, FRA-WDH and back (10 hrs).
The longest nonstop flight ever was offered by Singapore, too: SIN - JFK, straight up to north, crossing the northpole and then southwards, about 18 hours. If I have enough Lufthansa Miles, I'll do the nonstop flight FRA - EZE, this is the longest nonstop flight offered by Lufthansa, about 14 hours :D
