The World's Longest Non-Stop Commercial Flight

Finance & Business

On February 3, 2004 Singapore Airlines will open a non-stop service from Singapore to Los Angeles with a flight time of more than 18 hours. The flight beats out Continental Airlines' flight from Newark NJ to Hong Kong at just under 16 hours. Singapore Airlines, Asia's biggest airline, will fly once-a-day using 5 new Airbus A340-500 aircraft. The flight is expected to cost 5 or 10 percent over the usual single stop flights, but will shave hours off the trip.
