Can you imagine being stuck on a plane for 17 hours? It’s probably most people’s idea of hell. Starting March next year, you can opt for the experience thanks to Qantas Airways. The flag carrier airline of Australia will launch what will become the longest non-stop flight in the world.
Emirates currently holds the title for world’s longest flight and although the Dubai-based airline was scheduled to start a flight from Dubai to Panama that would dwarf its Aukland to Dubai route in March, plans for that flight have since been postponed.
Qantas’ announcement got us thinking: what currently are the longest commercial flights in the world? Well, in reverse order, click through the slideshow to see the top 10 – although expect each one to be bumped down a peg as of March next year.
