Would you be willing to take a 19.5-hour direct flight?
Long distance flights can be pretty crazy sometimes. I’ll be taking one next week from Lima to Mexico City to wrap up my time in Peru and South America. Although that won’t be nearly as long as last week’s 19.5-hour Qantas test flight (!) from New York to Sydney, Australia. Humanity is really starting to push air travel to the absolute limit. Currently the longest commercial flight is Singapore Airline’s route from Newark to Singapore which usually takes around 18.5 hours. The New York-Sydney flight would obviously smash that record.
