Longest flight in the world

I took the Singapore airlines a350 for a flight from Singapore Changi to New York Newark. I have done this flight a while ago before they started to flew to JFK airport. They now fly to JFK airport because during the Covid pandemic they fly more cargo than passengers and JFK has better cargo connections than Newark. The flight took around seventeen hours long and the cruise speed was mach 0.86. I’ve used the step climb method. When we flew above the north of Alaska, it was dark the whole time even it was in the early afternoon. The flight took place on the expert server.

Tomorrow I’ll post a special topic when I reach the 15.000 flight hours!

And I’ve tried some new angles, let me know what you think about the angles.

17hrs🤣🤣…my boy u can do this flight in 15hrs if you cruise at 25,000ft for most of the way (7,000nm)…then when at a lighter weight, increase your altitude to whatever you want…I find cruising at 25,000ft in the a350 works wonders for me…save the same amount of fuel I would at higher altitudes, but I get more speed at 25-28,000ft than I do at altitudes above 30,000ft…

But that’s just for wsss - kfjk or kewr
