My IF Pro sub is going to expire in a few days. Before that happens, I want to do a really long flight. Which aircraft, preferably an airliner, can fly the longest range in the game if I strip it down to nothing but a fuel tank with wings?
I’ve heard people have gone 50+ hours in a 767. Not sure how true that is.
The furthest I’ve gone was a 13 hour in a 787 900
i’ve gone close to a day in the B787-8
my longest non stop was 23hrs 54mins in a 777-200LR
@AndrewWu did 30+ (?) in an MD-11 and 40 in the A350.
Well. The 777LR is supposedly the aircraft that can fly the furthest. But I think I.F. changed the A350 fuel tank up a bit, and you can fit about 22 hours of fuel in the A359.
Here are some recommended long haul routes.
LHR-PERTH- All of these with Qantas 787-9
AKL-DOH | Qatar 777-200LR
AKL-DXB | I did this routes 2 weeks ago. Very nice, alot of scenery and solid 16 hours 45 minutes
DXB-LAX | Emirates A380, 77W etc
SFO-SIN | Singapore A359
SFO-DEL or DEL-SFO | Air India 777-200LR or 77W
PPT-CDG | Air Tahiti Nui 787-9
These are some long hauls (All over 15 hours) I have more so let me know please!
In normal flight, the following aircraft have over 20 hour range, which is basically global:
B772, 77L, 77W
787s are close but not sure
You can get 30+ hours in the 77L lol
350 goes over 24 if you stay at FL330
The new 777-200LR can fly 33 hours or more
Dang long time from where to where?? @SunDown
27 in the MD and 41 in the A350 but those were both single engine gimmicks (A350 I could’ve done a lot better on but I wasn’t planning properly).
I’ve done almost 60 hours non-stop on the A350. I had to turn off one engine at some point though.
I’ve gotten about 20 hours in the 350 and the 77L. Sfo-jnb is a great one of the wind is strong it can take up to 19-20 hours
777-200LR has the longest range in IF
uhm you ask me a tough question… this was a time where I almost only did such flights, I can’t remember really… I guess I flew really slow to gain more time, but as far as I remember the route was something like Reunion to Singapore, but western direction…
Boeing 777-200LR is the most efficient airliner in IF but that doesn’t really matter, what really matters is how effectively you plan.
Ideally you could go 22+ hrs but you could go up to 27+hrs. I’ve done the research lol. (In the 777)
I’m planning a ~8000nmi flight from EGLL (in London) to YPPH (in Australia)
I’ve seen someone on YT do 32 hours on a 787-10. Is this close to the other variants of the 787?
A350 or the 777LR
