Update – I’m now up to 11 after my Emirates LAX-DXB First Class shower experience!
Yesterday I posted my first trip report, a review of business class aboard the Emirates A380 from JFK to Dubai, and it sparked numerous reader emails inquiring as to my favorite flight of all time. As I thought about it, unsurprisingly the flights I have enjoyed the most have also been some of the longest, both in distance and time. These flights tend to utilize some of the newest aircraft, sport the most generous seats and amenities, and carry extreme perks not only on-board but both before and after the flights. I consulted trusty Wikipedia to find the full listing of the longest flights which includes 23 routes. Of the 23, I’ve flown 9 current routes and 1 of the discontinued routes. The exciting news is that this leaves me with over half the list to still experience! Which flight below would you be most interested in hearing about in a future trip report and which do you most want to take? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I was thinking SQ 21/22 from Newark to Singapore, currently the longest in distance and time as well as a business only flight. Who has me beaten, how many of these flights have you taken and which has been your favorite? It truly is amazing where this miles and points game can take you!
