Perth to London Heathrow
Beige I start, I actually flew this route on February 13, and I was saving it for the right time, and for some reason last night I decided I would post it today, so here it is, more than two months after I flew it.
Qantas 9, is a flight between the West Australian City of Perth, to London in the United Kingdom. Qantas 9s first flight was in 2017 (I think) and was the first time the continents of Australia and Europe could be connected in a single leap, instead of usual stop is in Singapore or the Middle East. QF9 spans an enormous 9,011 Miles and just under 14,500 Kilometers which makes it the third longest flight in the world. It is the longest flight in the world flown by a 787. The two longer flights are Auckland to Doha, in a Qatar 77L and Singapore to Newark in a Singapore A350. Qantas spent over a decade analyzing winds to find out the best possible flight plans for the monstrosity of a flight to operate smoothly. (That’s about as long as it seems since I flew this flight with everything that has happened since then). 4 pilots are needed for this flight, 2 flying and two resting due to its length. I took off just after 5PM Eastern Time, which was as the sun was rising in Perth (Remember this is in February so sunrise time has changed drastically) so I timed my arrival with mid afternoon in London, or in the late morning for me the next day.
Flight time was 17 hours and 4 minutes
