I had a water bottle but I didn't think my friend would appreciate that very much.

LHR to Beijing. (I'll never fly coach again internationally, even it it WAS a freebie!)

EWR to SFO to Saigon (With a diversion to Naha when an engine and nacelle fell off our 707 due to CAT wing overstressing! Aircraft was replaced three days later and we continued our trip.)

Tokyo to Frankfurt-Main (Thankfully, I was in a medically induced coma!)

LAX to Narita was a recent NWA first class cakewalk!

Longest for me is just EWR-LHR, most of my traveling has been domestic.

My friend at school, however, lives in Hong Kong so he makes the EWR-HKG CO flight 4 times a year (twice there, twice back), and makes me very jealous with his stories about the old Kai Tak approach. :)

Mine was EWR to HNL. It took about 11 hours that day I believe. Luckily it was on COA15 and they usa a 767. We had the bulkhead seats in the small cabin right behind first class. Actually had to stretch out to be able to touch the wall in front of us.

When I flew corporate, KCMH-SKCL (Cali, Columbia). 2209nm which was CLOSE to the max range of a SBR65. Took about 6 hours @ .64 Mach.

Then we would continue SKCL-SACO (Cordaba, Argentina) which was 2197nm. Was easily a 16 hour duty day with 12 hours flying.

Did that everyother month.


Here's what the route looks like

Also did this trip everyother month. KCMH-LOWW (Vienna, Austria) which was longer but had shorter legs.

Boy I miss those trips.

My shortest trip was KCMH-KOSU. Yep, 11nm. And I had to seat there all day. The owner wanted to make on entrence. He could have drove faster. Oh well, lots of money.

KCLE-KPIT. (Kidding) I have flown that 24-minute ascent and descent, though. Having been transportationally deprived most of my life, my longest flight was a shorty by comparison to others here: CLE-CUN; a little over 3 hours. I've flown nonstops to Florida more times than I can count.

As a passenger London(Heathrow) to Singapore.

As a pilot - a tie - Morristown-St.Catharines, divert to Elmira due to icing. (Cherokee); Oakland to Orange County long routing due to SFO traffic then interminable vectoring in the LA Basin (Skyhawk).

It would have been pretty circuitous as they wouldn't have been allowed to overfly any Russian territory.

It was in 1968.

the world record by eight pilots and 27 passengers and crew. 22 hours, 43 minutes and 13,422 miles in the air; Hong Kong to London (the jet flew across the northern Pacific Ocean before reaching North America, where it flew over Los Angeles, then slightly south of Chicago and over New York before cruising over the Atlantic Ocean to London), in the 777-200LR Worldliner.

SIA21 JFK-SIA onboard the Airbus 346.

Never flew it myself, but have spotted it from the ground 1/3 of the way to SIN over Oslo, Norway. At times it routes over here.

I guess the Singapore Airlines 021 is still the world's longest nonstop flight. And the only one to fly on in the same direction (east) on its "return" flight! Carrying on in the same direction gives a new meaning to the "return-flight" consept.

18,5 hours seated would be at the health risk limit for some people. Therefore meals are not served at the seats, and passengers are encouraged to walk around and have their food at the galley. A layout of the aircraft is at the SIA website.

The question was what is the longest flight you have flown. So, Transit, what is your longest flight that you have actually been on?

You would be right if you had identified the right airport.

I totally missed this one. Newark777's right - it doesn't fly to or from JFK but another airport.

It also flies either westbound or eastbound out of that airport, depending on the winds, for the return flight.
