The 10 Longest Flights in the World: here is the Ranking!


Taking the plane is the fastest and most comfortable way to reach any destination, even if it is on the other side of the world. The duration of the flight it is obviously variable, although usually for i very long journeys there are "halfway" stopovers. However, there are some non-stop flights which last almost 24 hours, a whole day!

If you have the patience to wait and not continually ask the flight attendant "how long is missing?", We report you the 10 longest flights in the world: here is the ranking!



10. San Francisco - Abu Dhabi

  • Aircraft type: Boeing 777-300ER
  • Distance traveled: 8.158 miles (approximately 13.130 km)
  • Flight duration: 16 hours and 15 minutes

In November 2014, the Etihad airline launched its new one non-stop connection from San Francisco to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates in about 16 hours. Even though it is a very long time to spend on board a plane, Etihad is known to be one of the best airlines in the world, so the flight will certainly be very comfortable.

9. Dubai - Houston, Texas

  • Aircraft type: Airbus A380-800
  • Distance traveled: 8.168 miles (approximately 13.145 km)
  • Flight duration: 16 hours and 20 minutes

There are actually two connections between the two cities, both managed by the Emirates company. Flights are often on offer for the modest sum of 1.002 US dollars, a real deal!

8. Los Angeles - Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

  • Aircraft type: Boeing 777-300ER
  • Distance traveled: 8.332 miles (approximately 13.400 km)
  • Flight duration: 16 hours and 55 minutes

Lose yourself in the souks full of spices and corals to the huge hotels and resorts, discover the fascinating local gastronomic tradition and much more: this is what this town on the Red Sea offers. To be able to enjoy all of this, Californians have to face a journey of almost 17 hours, but it's certainly worth it!



7. Los Angeles - Dubai

  • Aircraft type: Airbus A380-800
  • Distance traveled: 8.339 miles (approximately 13.420 km)
  • Flight duration: 16 hours and 35 minutes

With its skyscrapers towering against the deep blue of the sea, the unbridled luxury of fashion boutiques, opulent hotels and endless sun-kissed beaches, Dubai actually has a lot in common with Los Angeles.

But the fact remains that these two cities are almost 13.500 km apart, on opposite sides of the globe, and that it takes a very long flight to get from one location to another.

6. Los Angeles - Abu Dhabi

  • Aircraft type: Boeing 777-200LR
  • Distance traveled: 8.390 miles (approximately 13.500 km)
  • Flight duration: 16 hours and 30 minutes

What is the positive aspect of this nearly 17 hour flight? Passengers can enjoy all the bonuses that the Ethiad company makes available. Let's say that to travel in First Class you have to put your hand in your wallet, but do we want to think about reclining beds and flat screen TVs?

5. Johannesburg - Atlanta, Georgia

  • Aircraft type: Boeing 777-200LR
  • Distance traveled: 8.439 miles (approximately 13.580 km)
  • Flight duration: 16 hours and 40 minutes

For those who love adventure, Johannesburg is the ideal destination, thanks to the presence of the Kruger National Park. Unfortunately, in order to live the exciting experience of the African safari, you have to endure an almost interminable flight, one of the longest, which it crosses the entire Atlantic Ocean before descending to Namibia and meeting South Africa.



4. Dallas - Sidney

  • Aircraft type: Airbus A380-800
  • Distance traveled: 8.578 miles (approximately 13.800 km)
  • Flight duration: 16 hours and 55 minutes

The Quantas airline has certainly not spared itself in trying to put at ease the passengers who will take this flight, one of the longest! This gargantuan aircraft it has everything you need to have a long journey, but it can also be comfortable and fun.



3. Dubai - Panama

  • Aircraft type: Boeing 777-200LR
  • Distance traveled: 8.590 miles (approximately 13.800 km)
  • Flight duration: 17 hours and 15 minutes

2. Dubai - Auckland

  • Aircraft type: Boeing 777-200LR
  • Distance traveled: 8.819 miles (approximately 14.200 km)
