Hey guys,

Interested to hear what is the longest flight you have taken.

Mine is pathetic, it's Aberdeen to Gran Canaria which is 4 hours and 30 minutes.

I hope to one day fly from London ton Los Angeles and also from London to Sydney via Dubai with the Emirates A380. I can dream!!!

Edinburgh to Portugal is my longest -

October 7th, 2014, 02:49 PM
Never actually been on a plane, I seem to be the only person in the UK that's never taken to the air. I feel left out

I've only taken one flight in my life, excluding, the one when I was still an embryo, and the one where I was 18 months. Hartsfield Jackson (Atlanta) to LaGuardia (Manhattan)

October 7th, 2014, 06:41 PM
Something like 6 hours, I think? From Sacramento to Atlanta, then Charleston.

But I did travel from California to Texas to Ohio and it was a 6 hour flight.

Took a flight to London when I was very small. Needless to say I barely remember the trip itself, let alone how long the flight was.

Manchester to Manila international on Singapore airlines.

Took about 16 hours but we did have an hour stop in Munich and then a 2 hour stop in Singapore. So I guess it was actually 13 hours all I can say is it's extremely exhausting being on a plane for 13 or so hour' .

October 8th, 2014, 04:49 PM
I don't remember the times, but I went from Oregon > Florida > Sao Paulo(Brazil), as well as Brazil > Netherlands > Germany. Also, Germany > France > Brazil.

I honestly have no clue about the duration of any of these, but they were pretty long flights, that I'm sure of.

October 8th, 2014, 05:41 PM

ANZ175 & ANZ176, between Perth, Western Australia & Auckland, New Zealand. A few years ago now actually. 5 to 6 hours.

I'd love to do Perth to Singapore or Perth to Johannesburg in the not too distant future.

October 11th, 2014, 05:12 PM
Mine is probably the 22 hour marathon one-way to South Korea from Philadelphia with stops in Dallas, LA, and Hong Kong. Plus the awful flight back.

Non-stop would have to be Dublin to Orlando, about 11 1/2 hours as we had to go a weird route because of a storm. Back in 2004 this was.

I'm flying Dublin - San Francisco in a few weeks, which is around 11 hours non-stop.

October 12th, 2014, 08:55 PM
I did LAX to IST (Istanbul) and it was about 13 hours and 20 minutes. Then factor in time changes, 23 hours and 20 minutes. Not too keen on doing that flight again any time soon!

I think it was 13 or 14 hours on AA's old Delhi to Chicago flight.

November 18th, 2014, 12:14 AM

Same here, but I'm pretty sure mine was for 7... who knows. I'll be doing 9 hours Calgary to Amsterdam in the summer though.

Mine's worse than yours. My longest, and only, flight was 1 1/2 hours xD. It was from Orange County, California to Sacramento, California.

The longest one I can remember was New York to London and back (back took longer due to headwinds). But when i was around 4 or 5 we flew from New York to Tokyo. No idea what i did during the flight.
