United Airlines Will Fly the Longest-Ever Route From the U.S.

Submitted
United Airlines is adding an 18-hour non-stop flight, covering 8,700 miles between Los Angeles and Singapore. The trip — the longest scheduled non-stop flight to or from the U.S. — will be offered in October, subject to government approval, United said. Westbound flights will take approximately 18 hours, while eastbound flights are expected to last just more than 15 hours. (fortune.com) More...

No US carrier operates the 380. But they are gettin real cheap so HA might be the first.

wasn't KEWR-WSSS or KEWR-VHHH the longest route from the US? I want to say it was SIA that ran that route, using an A345..
