The world's longest commercial flight took off from Singapore's Changi Airport on Thursday, with excited and apprehensive passengers on board settling in for a marathon 19 hours in the air to land at Newark Liberty Airport, which serves New York City.

The move to ditch economy will further cement Singapore Airlines as a premium service provider, as they continue to move away from their budget-friendly past image.

Last year, Qatar Airways launched the longest flight in the world between its home base in Doha, Qatar and Auckland, New Zealand. "Currently, we have only a daily, non-stop flight from Singapore to San Francisco".

Passenger Peggy Ang, 52, said before the flight that she felt "apprehensive because I'm not sure what would I do in 18.5 hours" inside the plane.

For the flight crew - which includes two first officers and a 13-strong cabin contingent - the work load will be split into shifts, with each pilot having a minimum eight hours of rest during the flight.

As with other Singapore Air long-haul routes, you can eat local favourites such as chicken rice and beef hor fun, or 'Book the Cook, ' a service that allows you to order dishes like lobster thermidor or rib-eye steak up to 24 hours before the flight. Pilots will get three nights off after reaching NY.

The airline has already ordered seven new ultra-long range twin-engine Airbus SE AIR.PA A350-900ULRs fitted with just 161 business class and premium economy seats - and no economy class seats - for the USA capacity increase. The Airbus A350-900 without a transplant will overcome 16,700 kilometers. This was abandoned in 2013 due to high oil prices. The A340-500 it was using at the time used a lot of fuel and eventually the route became too expensive to run. It also has a high ceiling and large windows.

Lightweight composites including carbon fiber make up the bulk of the A350-900ULR, while new wing tips help reduce drag, Airbus says.

Tsunami threat as 7.0-magnitude quake hits Papua New Guinea
The town of Severo-Kurilsk felt up to 4.0 of the quake, but only sustained minor damages with no reported casualties. Earlier this year, the government estimated more than 100 people died after a series of tremors shook the country.

Campbell Wilson, its senior vice president of sales and marketing, said the Airbus A350-900ULR, which was delivered two weeks ago, consumes 25 percent less fuel than an older generation aircraft of the same size.

"Qantas' flight from Perth to London is seeing a load factor in economy of 92% - and in premium it's 94%".

There's so much going on in ultra-long-haul flying that Business Insider turned to air travel intelligence firm OAG for the authoritative list of the long flights in the world.
