Sorry, Qantas. Your record for the longest commercial nonstop flight – currently between Sydney and Dallas – is set to be broken next year.
When Emirates launches its new daily flight between Dubai and Panama City from 1 February, the new record will be an astonishing 17 hours and 35 minutes (the Qantas flight takes just under 17 hours), and the flight will cross nine time zones.
Hardcore long-distance fliers only need apply.
