If it’s a duplicate I apologise, there wasn’t when I started making it!
Hello, as some of you may be aware today Singapore Airlines re-open an old route. However this isn’t an ordinary route as this route covers a distance of 16,700km (10,300miles) in just under 19 hours, making it the longest flight in both distance and time. It used to be operated in an A340-500 spanning Singapore to New York in 19 hours. It was ended for economical reasons. The flight is operated by Singapore Airlines under the callsign SQ22 in an Airbus A350-900ULR. The flight will depart Singaporea Changi airport at 23:55 And arrive at New York’s Newark liberty international airport at 06:00 the next morning. Good news! If you do happen to fly on this flight the cabin has no economy seats, it has 161 seats in total. 67 seats in business class and 94 in premium economy.
I will leave you with a question, when I made a thread about the Qantas Perth to London I asked : could you survive 17 hours on a plane? This is over 2 hours longer so, would you be able to fly for 19-20 hours? Or would you lose it?
