A Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner set the record for the longest commercial flight earlier today. The plane flew a little more than 13,422 miles Eastbound from Hong Kong to London in a flight that took almost 23 hours. The plane flew across the Pacific Ocean, the United States, and the Atlantic Ocean, where the passengers saw their second sunrise of the trip. The plane had eight pilots and was carrying an additional 27 passengers and crew, including Boeing representatives, journalists and customers. Boeing even setup a website to commemorate the flight. Awesome.
