O'Hare to Incheon KR. 6,500 miles, 14 hours. Most of my flights to Korea were via SFO, and the long leg was only 12 hours. But for one visit I caught a direct flight on United, which I see they no longer have.

No offense intended to the OP, but am I the only one that finds these kinds of 'just enter your own data and no food for discussion' threads boring. The only ones who even bother posting are ones who think they might 'win'. (and complainers like me :-) -- I know if you don't like, why click)

@otterpods well if you find it boring go onto a different discussion thread. I was just curious. If you want to make it more interesting, you can tell others your experiences on the longest flight you've taken. I'd actually really appreciate that!

Lol, otter. My longest flight was from Chicago to Hong Kong, I believe it was 18 hours? I don't know, I was drugged up & passed out the whole time. Thank god for drugs. On the way back, I was woken up from my blissful drug induced sleep by an asian woman screaming bloody murder for who knows why, I don't speak the language. Boy was I pissed, my flying phobia definitely did not need that. Eventually someone cuffed her. I would've gladly hauled off & punched her in the face. Apparently she didn't take her meds that day was the rumor going around the plane.

Do I win?

It looks like the 'no offense intended' and 'I know if you don't like, why click' (with smiley) disclaimers didn't work. My longest was probably 8 or 9.

LOL, probably, but I talked to a pilot once who said he used to have to fly to Australia regularly from the US and it took 20+ hours… I don';t know, though maybe he was counting layovers or fuel changes… etc… Can jumbo jets even go that long? My brother flew C5's in the gulf, I should ask him.

Now that I think of it, there may have been a layover in Taipei. The drugs, they don't help my memory so much.

-Nope you cheated! Chicago to Hong Kong is a tad over 15 hour flight.

-Also I think the "yeah 18 hours" and then buried in there is "oh yeah, I changed planes...". Nope doesn't qualify. If that was so I could record 48 hour flights with delays and such.

-I am also going to self-disqualify my almost 17 hour ATL to Josburg flight because it did afterall stop for refueling.

- If anyone can claim to have been on the Newark to Singapore route, since discountinued, at almost 19 hours, then we may have a winner.

Non-stop flight - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yeah but like the other guy said the "how many states, how many countries, how many flights...". It's not so much that it because a masturbatory session of everyone telling there tale and no one else really reading or caring, it's that they pop up about every six months. But then again, I've just been here too long, every thread topic is a rerun/duplicate now.
