World's longest nonstop commercial flight takes off this week


Longest non-stop commercial flight?

Can you upgrade to an in-flight movie?


“…between Singapore to New York…”? Surely you can either say “between Singapore and New York” or “from Singapore to New York”, but to start off with one version and switch to another part-way through is just messy.


Royal Thai once did a New York to Bangkok flight.


Interesting. Often weather is more important than distance. For LA to Bangkok I assumed it was a polar type thing because we went straight North past SF and when over Alaska, then back down over Japan and southern China.

But for Bangkok to LA we just shot straight across the Pacific, and it was a full four hours faster.


Shortest distance between Bangkok and Los Angeles



Interesting: well, it certainly isn’t the fastest route going east.
