Quick question

Anyone know if a 787-10 can make a 18Hr flight?

You can close thus onec there are some good responces😃

It wpuld be singapore to NYC by the way

It should be able too. Load it up on fuel

Ok, buecuai the ofucoal range is not able, but aparently IF has a much longer range

Well, there are no real life flights from Singapore to New York City. I doubt the 787 can make it there unless it stops somewhere along the way to refuel.

There’s no place to stop. That flight heads straight over the North Pole.

Oh yes, a nice toasty -80 F this time of year. Back on topic, I say give it a shot. The 787-10 should be able to make it.

I’ve seen discussions on the inter webs about the A350 possibly doing a Singapore to Newark, NJ route.

Well I think I will try, in the morning I can figure out if I will need to refuel, or if I should continue during school

Maybe you could tell us if you actually succeeded or not. Then we could also try it out to get a lot of flight hours. :)

Maybe report back here if your flight succeeded or failed. :)

The A380 made the NYC to Simgapore, this is the return flight, but I prefir the 787 as awsomely large as the 380 moght be

Yes it can be done. I flew over 10000 miles in the 787 multiple times and ended up with 2-3 hours of gas left.

I’m pretty sure the B787-10 has a similar range to the B767. Of course most airbus aircraft have a far longer range.

Wich one -8 -9 or -10?
