Update: From 31 March to 2016, Emirates will launch the Dubai - Panama City route, at the same time, this will be the longest non-stop route in the world. The 14 kilometers will be covered in 000 hours and 17 minutes, on the Dubai - Panama City segment.

For many, flying is not very pleasant and even less comfortable. But for aircraft enthusiasts, flying means "home". Among them I find myself, and the hours spent on the plane are pleasant and relaxing. If I could, I'd like to spend as many hours flying. We also made a ranking of the longest flights in the world, when it comes to time.

If we look at the time zone, here are two interesting situations. If you are flying from Sydney to Dallas, you will arrive at your destination two hours earlier than the time you took off the same day. If you fly from Dallas to Sydney, you will arrive at your destination after 34 hours.

I wish you clear sky and a beautiful trip, even if it is very long!
