The World’s Longest Flight Took Off for the First Time Today…and There’s Something Missing

The record-breaking world’s longest flight took off today from New York bound for Singapore on Singapore Airlines’ brand-new, ultra long-haul A350…with one major feature missing.

Singapore Airlines Business Class

Singapore Airlines has done everyone a huge favour and ditched Economy Class for this epic 19-hour journey. The new A350 plane features a two-class layout, with 67 Business Class seats and 94 Premium Economy Class seats.

“Singapore Airlines has always taken pride in pushing the boundaries to provide the best possible travel convenience for our customers, and we are pleased to be leading the way with these new non-stop flights using the latest-technology, ultra-long-range Airbus A350-900ULR,” said Singapore Airlines’ CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong.

Singapore Airlines Premium Economy

The A350-900ULR will offer customers a more comfortable travelling experience with features such as higher ceilings, larger windows, an extra wide body and lighting designed to reduce jet lag. Its carbon composite airframe also allows for improved air quality due to a more optimised cabin altitude and humidity levels.

“The flights will offer our customers the fastest way to travel between the two cities – in great comfort, together with Singapore Airlines’ legendary service – and will help boost connectivity to and through the Singapore hub.” – Singapore Airlines’ CEO, Mr Goh Choon Phong.

The flight departed from Newark Liberty International Airport in New York bound for Singapore. The route will initially be served three times a week, departing Singapore on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, while daily flights will commence from 18 October after an additional aircraft joins the fleet.
