A flight operated by Australian airline Qantas has just made the longest flight in recorded history. The flight was 19 hours and 19 minutes non-stop. This long flight has created the possibility of scheduling long flights that go to the farthest places in the world.
CNN and other journalists were present on the flight. They were on the flight because they wanted to gather data about the passengers and the cabin crew. They wanted to check their wellbeing and their biometrics. Qantas is hoping to persuade Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority with their project, hoping to be allowed to operate more long non-stop flights like this.
