EMIRATES vs SINGAPORE AIRLINES : World’s longest flight battle

Airbus is  currently working on a new  A350-900 aircraft that would allow Singapore Airlines to get back the record for the world’s longest commercial flight.

SIA stopped 19-hour ( 15.344km ) non-stop  flight from Singapore to New York in 2013 and the new A350 should be able to make the trip by using 25 per cent less fuel by being lighter .

And why all this rush?

Emirates Airlines just announced launch of a world’s new longest scheduled flight from Dubai to Panama. Entire flight will take 17,5 hours long ( let me know who wants to spend that amount of time in economy ?) and travel 13.800km.

Currently, crown for the longest flight holds Qantas on their flight from Sydney to Dallas ( 17 hours )

I will definitely not be flying those flights myself, but will be interesting to watch who will snatch the crown next…
