Qantas has confirmed that the longest commercial non-stop flight in the world has been cleared for take-off. QF1 will spend 21 hours in the air, leaving Sydney in the evening and arriving in London the next morning, covering a whopping 10,978 miles.
Yep, you read that right, a 21 hour flight.
QF2, from London to Sydney, will leave prior to lunch and reach Sydney late afternoon the next day, flying a (still mind-blowing) 20 hours. From three-day journeys with seven required stops to a 21 hour flight, Project Sunrise, aptly named after the double sunrise travellers will witness, marks a huge hop forward for travellers on the Kangaroo route! Now, 21 hours is a heck of a long time to be sat like a sardine in a tin, but no fear, Netflights is here! We have a list of 21 things you can do on any long-haul flight.
Please be aware, we take no responsibility for any action taken against you upon the completion of this list…especially number 21.
