  1. I can easily deal with it, I always fly Melbourne Dubai for 15 hours and then another 7 to London and then another flight a hour to Berlin cause its cheaper that way and I do that every six months and I fly my self with QANTAS and now 16 hour flights are normal to me and I see everyone complaining

  2. awesome video. the transitions are great. it also captures not the take off only but the landing of planes too. keep posting such great videos!

  3. This is the longest flight in terms of flight time ie duration. The record for the longest flight in terms of distance is held by Air India – New Delhi to San Francisco.

  4. Awesome takeoff video mate!! Yesterday was such a special day. Loved the start of the video with the promotional board. Liked!!

  5. What a great catch, this 777 looks gorgeous with the GE-90s! I am not sure if it is that comfortable to be onboard a plane for 17 hours without any stopover, but it is definitely interesting to see these long flights! Excellent camera work mate, liked a lot! 🙂

  6. Wonderful footage! Ironic to see that EK 380 aswell – now the second longest flight 😀 QR's Triple looks really good!

  7. Wow, fantastic video again mate!! Great catch of this T7 and awesome that you filmed this special flight! Huge Like 🙂
