Fun Fact

The longest commercial flight you can take is the 18-and-one-half-hour Singapore Airlines flight between Los Angeles and Singapore.

The longest commercial jet flight ever was a test flight of an Airbus A340-500 aircraft. This flight took off from Hong Kong and landed in London—23 hours later. The flight could have been accomplished more quickly, but the pilots purposely took a longer route than necessary because the point of the flight was to prove that the plane could stay airborne that long.

I would not want to have had the middle seat.
