Qatar Air Now Flies History’s Longest Non-Stop Print

The international airline just introduced the 16-hour, 10-minute service from Doha, Qatar, to Auckland, New Zealand. Because of weather and winds, the return trip takes longer, 17 hours and 20 minutes. For seasoned senior fliers, not quite as long as it took Noah's Ark, but the weary time span could be a challenge.

Therefore, suggestions could help you while away the hours in the air. Take one or more of the following along in electronic or print book form on your flight: Bible New Testament: 18 hrs 20 min.
Les Misérables 1925 silent movie: 5 hrs, 59 min.
Gone With The Wind 1936 novel 1037 pages reading time; 1939 movie; each takes 4 hrs.
Die Meistersinger opera recording: 5 hrs 15 min.
Phantom of the Opera movie: 2 hrs 30 min.
The Godfather Part I and II 1974: 6 hrs 33 min.
Old Testament: 52 hrs 20 min. Consider for total trip, both directions plus waiting in the airport.
