Emirates Announces World’s Longest Flight – 17 hours and 35 mins

Emirates this morning announced their newest route, Dubai to Panama City, the airline’s first destination in Central America. The route will officially take over the “World’s Longest Flight” title from Qantas’ Dallas-Sydney flight. Emirates says the route will clock in at 17 hours and 35 minutes when heading west. Flights are scheduled to begin February 1, 2016. The route will still be short of the all-time title held by Singapore’s retired Newark-Singapore flights which were scheduled for 18 hours and 50 minutes when heading east.

I have 11 of the flights on the “World’s Longest List” covered, how many do you have?
