Overnight flight recommendations?

Here are a few 8-12 hour long flights that I used to fly a lot when global first released and are still some of my favourites to fly to date, from time to time. I hope you find something interesting from this list I’ve compiled :)

I flew KDEN to RJAA last night, was a nice flight. Took off right around 830pm (EST) and landed around 815am (EST), I had a decent headwind which slowed the flight, but overall was nice.

VHHH to KLAX about 10-14 hours depending on the winds an actual flight ;) CX885 773ER Cathay pacific

Got to be the EGLL-FSIA (Seychelles Pointe LaRue) on the British Airways 787. Around 10 hours, with a really beautiful approach into Mahe descending parallel to Morne Seychellois, the country’s highest peak.

You can go OMDB to KATL and I think that is like 16 hours I think I cant remember it was I long time ago

A good one I like to fly is EGLL (London-Heathrow) - SBGR (São Paulo-Guarulhos). It takes about 11:30. Wish you a good flight anyways!! :)

If you want to be tired all day - KSFO-KLAX (55 min) AS 738

The topic is overnight flight recommendations, not short haul.

KORD-OJAI (11 hours) Royal Jordanian 787-8 is very nice

I said if you want to be tired all day.

I guess there are millions of topics about overnight flight suggestions.

One of the funniest flights I have flowing was from fale-kord

I recommend EDDM to FAOR (MUC to JNB). Amazing views over Europe and Africa. About 8 to 10 hours flight time :)

I like KLAX-RCTP or KSFO-WSSS. Both are about 13-15 hours, but are very enjoyable to fly

CYYC-RJAA
Flight Time: 10 Hours
Suggested Aircraft and Livery: B763 Air Canada
