Marking one of the milestones in the history of commercial flights, Qantas has set a record by completing a 19-hour flight. This Australian flight attempted this non-stop flight that started from New York and landed in Sydney, Australia, as it was planned. 19 hours and 16 minutes was the time the flight took for completing one of the longest flight journeys. It should be noted that no breaks were taken during the trip and health of both the pilots and the travelers were constantly monitored. In addition to this, the airline was taking so many measures to prevent jetlag as well.
For instance, the lighting inside the flight and the provision of food items were in such a way that the traveler group felt minimal jetlag. On top of these, the travelers and crew were involved in exercise options that did offer better health for the whole experience. As mentioned earlier, this 19-hour flight is a record and Qantas will be using the information it has collected from the users as the insight for its future projects. The airline has planned a few other trips of this sort and one of them is happening in November. This trip will be from London to Sydney.
Of course, some ideas have already been made clear. For instance, it needs to be noted that the company is able to save a lot of time through these trips. While the flight had to leave quite early than a connection-based flight used to, Qantas reached Sydney quite earlier than expected, also securing the record for the longest non-stop flight. Also, it was made clear that the steps to fight jetlag were quite effective, thanks to the lighting conditioning as well as the timely provision for foods. This might after all be the way we could handle long-overhaul flight experiences.
