The world's longest nonstop flight will connect New York City and Singapore later this year.
Singapore Airlines is announcing it will begin daily non-stops between the Big Apple and Singapore on October 11th. The more-than ten-thousand mile flight will take just under 19 hours. The airline will fly an Airbus A350 with 67 business class and 94 premium economy seats. The company says it's also planning Los Angeles-to-Singapore flights sometime after the New York flights begin.
The New York to Singapore flight is not a new idea, by the way. The airline previously had the route until 2013, when gas prices made it too costly. Source: ABC Australia
