Boeing 777-200LR aircraft now flies seven out of the ten longest flights in the world, according to a list compiled by flight data provider OAG Aviation. With the jetliner operating the current longest direct service by Emirates from Dubai to Aucklandâ€”covering a distance of 8,819 miles and a duration of 17 hours and 15 minutesâ€”the Boeing 777 has already proven itself to be the most preferred aircraft for long-haul flights thanks to itsÂ superior range and outstanding fuel efficiency, which has long been a challenging issue with long routes. Aside from Emirates, the aircraft is also currently in use to flyÂ Atlantaâ€“Johannesburg with Delta Airlines, Dallasâ€“Hong Kong with American Airlines, and Abu Dhabiâ€“L.A.with Etihad, among others. The remaining three services on the world’s longest flight list are flown using the A380, which Emirates also used for the inaugural service of its Dubaiâ€“Auckland flight.Â The A380Â currently flies Sydneyâ€“Dallas for Qantas, as well as Dubaiâ€”L.A. and Dubaiâ€“Houston for Emirates, which cover a distance of 8,576 miles, 8,323 miles, and 8,151 miles respectively.
