World′s longest flight lands in New Zealand

The world's longest commercial flight, from Qatar to New Zealand, has touched down in Auckland for the first time. The Qatar Airways Boeing 777-200 crossed 14,535 kilometers and 10 time zones on its epic journey.




The Qatar Airways flight was greeted with a celebratory water cannon salute as it taxied down the runway at Auckland airport on Monday.
"We've officially landed in New Zealand, the 'Land of the Long White Cloud,'" the airline tweeted.

The 16-hour, 23-minute flight from Doha covered a distance of 14,535 kilometers (9,030 miles), crossing 10 time zones and five countries. Qatar Airways said the flight was operated by four pilots and 15 cabin crew.

Wow! People who are claustrophobic will just die there! I remember my 9hrs flight, I took sleeping pills, for where! Sleep ran away, was awake all thru the trip like a gold fish! Mehn! God is Awesome! Immediately we landed, Omo! Come see sleep! Fear is not healthy at all.😚

My dear flying Emirates to the USA is about that 16hrs too, Infact I sincerely hate travelling to the US generally, it's a damn long and tiring trip, the only reason I go th is to give birth, asides that I ll jejely go to Ghana for holiday.

Wow!!
If a 6 to 7 hours flight to Africa freaks and wears me out then I don't even want to imagine what a 16 hours flight will do to my system.
As for the Airline, should I say congratulations?Though am still wondering what they were trying to prove.

They are referring to the 10 hours time zones that they crossed. It really can't be the longest with 16hrs 23mins, cos I have been in a 16hrs 40mins flight from Dubai to Houston.

Lady G said...

Uuum my flight from Houston to Dubai was also 16 hours non stop. Where is our own salute?

QUEEN AMY Loves ACCESS BANK said...

That's short na, it took me 24 straight hours to fly to Bethlehem.

Madea said...

True. But their journeys are always longer due to hours spent in transit. Won't fly them again sha. Good service or not. :D

Direct flight from where to Bethlehem is 24 hours? Biko layovers don't count

Why do I have a feeling you have never travelled by air outside Nigeria? I know I am right. Fake woman. Different dishes on board indeed.

Lagos to Maiduguri far na. I did 16hrs from Taraba to Lagos when I was serving and my bum went numb. As I never enter plane before make I yarn the one wey I sabi.

Teddy said...

Honestly. Abuja to Instanbul to chigago to Florida was just the worst. I wanted to cry. All together it was about 22 hours with just 3 hours stop over in between. How I wish I can just disappear and appear

Was gonna say that. Dubai to NY Alone is 14hours+. How is 16hrs+ flight supposed to be the longest flight?

Anonymous said...

If u fly an american airline, Naija to NY is like 13 hours. Its connecting through Dubai that makes the journey so long. Last time I flew emirates to NY, I swore never to again. My shoulders almost dislocated.

The General's Wife said...

Hope u enjoyed ur vacay. Glad to have u back.
