Hi IFC,

One of my favorite things is long hauls!! As stated in the title, what are some y’all’s favorite long hauls between 8-13 hrs? Those are ideal because if my current summer schedule.

Thanks

Well my favourite was PER-LHR with the Qantas 787. But obviously exceeds those 13h lol.

Otherwise any route from Europe to U.S/Canada is always fun.

An IRL Route I actually fly is LOWW-VTBS. The route over Asia shows beautiful Landscapes.

Served by Austrian Airlines w/ 777-200ER

Atlanta to Amsterdam on the delta 330-900 is nice

You could try some routes from south america to europe, if you want IRL routes, your best bet is going from/to Madrid since there are plenty or Lisbon if you want to fly to Brazil

My favorite and most popular route I fly is EGLL-KLAX in the BA 772

One of my faves is Nairobi to New York with Kenya Airways. Its 14-15hrs. The scenery when is amazing when your over land.
