United's LA to Singapore route is the longest flight by a US airline



United Airlines’ 8,700-mile Los Angeles to Singapore’s route, is now the longest scheduled nonstop flight from the United States, according to USA Today.

United's flight in the direction of Singapore has a scheduled flying time of 17 hours, 55 minutes. The return flight to L.A. is scheduled for 15 hours, 15 minutes.

Travelers depart Los Angeles International Airport on a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner at 8:55 p.m. and arrive in Singapore two days later, in local time, at 6:50 a.m.

By distance, it’s not the world’s longest – but it’s close. Qatar Airways’ Doha-Auckland route (9,032 miles) and Emirates’ Dubai-Auckland route (8,819 miles) remain the two longest non-stop flights.

Qatar Airways’ 9,032-mile flight from Auckland, New Zealand, to Doha, Qatar has a published flying time of 17 hours, 40 minutes.

During the past two years, United announced they would start numerous ‘ultra-long- haul’ flights. Earlier this year they announced a non-stop flight between Houston and Sydney, Australia.
