They’re also poised to beat their own record with an even longer return flight of 17 hours and 30 minutes.
Air India is another airline that claims the “longest” flight but by distance. Their non-stop flight from Delhi to San Francisco covers 9,506 miles. In 2018 Singapore Airlines will be launching a non-stop flight to New York City that is expected to take a whopping 19 hours.
