Who thinks they've done the longest non-stop flight?? I think I'm close - but let's see your claims first.
And what about the longest flight across a country or stretch of water.
Over to you lot.... Bring it on.

The longest one I took was from Madrid to Santiago, about 13 hours or so.

Still a long way from the longest in the world

Here is a more complete list

Not putting mine up yet, but it's longer (not by much though) than that.

It's quite interesting though, I did'nt know there were so many 15+ hour flights.

I forgot to mention the cross country or water flights?
Most of them were between Europe and both North and South America and from LA to Tahiti, regarding the stretch of water flights.
Across a country, actually between two points in the same country: probably Brazil, around 4 or 5 hours. I also was surprised to take a domestic flight in French Polynesia from Tahiti to Mangareva: 4 hours! Didn't know it was that big.

I did Manchester-Johannesburg. It was just over 14 hours.
What about the longest route in one country?? Isn't there a flight with Aeroflot from St. Petersburg, to somewhere close to the bit across from Alaska. You take off, fly east for something like 14 hours - and when you land, you're still in the same country??
Awesome.

Awesome.

East to West in Singapore is less than 2h by public transport.

Hey it's an eternity you know!

Did London to Rio, can't remember exactly but by googling it, it seems I must have been flying for about 13 hours. On that flight they forgot to get my vegetarian meal option onboard, so they went to the kitchen area thingy place (?) and came back...wait for it....with an apple!!!!

London to Auckland, 24 hours there and 26 hours back, with 2 hours on the ground at Hong Kong. The Hong Kong to London stretch was 13 hours.
