LOADING
Qantas

Now that the excitement has blown over for the 17-hour, Perth to London flight that launched in early 2018, Qantas is looking to up its game. By 2022—in an initiative they are dubbing ‘Project Sunrise’—Qantas hopes to have a Sydney – London flight that’ll be 20 hours long.

We know what you’re thinking: What would entice me to trap myself on a plane with 300-plus strangers for 20 hours? Well besides getting from A to B a lot faster, Qantas is currently brainstorming ways to feature high-end amenities never before seen on a long-haul flight.

We’re talking luxuries like an in-flight café, an area to do gentle exercise and stretching, sleeping pods, noise-cancelling headphones and improved entertainment options (rumour has it VR has been thrown into the mix) that’ll make it easier to switch off and unwind.

Though some think making it 20 hours without a re-fuel stop is somewhat ambitious, Qantas seem to think that in just three years they will reclaim the title of the world’s longest flight – currently coming second to the 19-hour Newark – Singapore flight.

But the most important question stands: Would you agree to board a flight that runs close to an entire day?
