Top 10: the longest non-stop flights in the world

Monday newsletters always feature top 10 travel lists to inspire.

Today (February 2, 2015): Top 10 longest non-stop flights in the world.

If you think that flights between Europe and America, or Asia and Africa, are too long, then think twice. Because they pale in comparison to the world’s ten longest non-stop flights, all with a minimum flying time of 16 hours or distance of at least 8,000 miles. “Are we there yet?!” might possibly be the worst thing you can ask a flight attendant on one of these trips.
