I come to you as a grade 5 user who’s logged nearly 1k hours on Infinite Flight. I have a very simple question about a flight I am embarking on, and to skip the hassle of the unwanted Q&As, I’ll provide as much information that pertains to this question about me and this flight right from the get go. This may seem like a basic question to some, and yes it may be, but I believe we are all still learning and even though I’ve logged many hours in IF and I am a student pilot “IRL”, I’m still learning and I’m seeking input from those who have more experience in these untra-long-hauls
Background info about me and Long-Hauls
The longest flight I’ve ever done in IF was about 12 hours.
I’ve logged 950+ hours, ~700,000 XP, 2078 landings and as stated I’m a grade 5.
You’ll typically find my flying the 787 family. (Which is much more fuel efficient than the A333 which I’m using on this route)

You’ve read this far, congrats! What I am asking you, the IFC, is given the information above, do you think I’ll be able to make it to my destination? This question is mainly aimed to those who’ve done many ultra long hauls longer than thirteen or fourteen hours. I know there are plenty of variables such as wind, traffic at destination, etc. FPLtoIF seems to think I’ll be fine, but my gut says otherwise and I’m not sure which to listen to. I’m also sure that the pax would rather not have to hike across the desert to their destination, and I know the pilot would rather not rack up a few violations during his rest period.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
