Qatar Airways holds the current record for the world's longest nonstop flight - a 17-hour 40-minute marathon journey from Doha to Auckland, New Zealand.
Senior Singapore Airlines executive Campbell Wilson said the Airbus A350-900ULR consumes 25 percent less fuel than an older generation aircraft of the same size. "For flights from the U.S., Singapore is located just outside the service range of planes like the Boeing 747 and 777 and the Airbus A380, all of which require an intermediate stop".
Singapore Airlines will use the long-range Airbus A350-900ULR, configured to carry 161 passengers - 67 in business class and 94 in premium economy, with no regular economy seats available. Don't be! Singapore Airlines will offer business class passengers two meals, giving passengers the option as to when they eat. As AirlineGeeks reported a few months ago, the product will not be your standard business and premium economy class products since special considerations have been made given the flight's monumental length.
Qantas Airlines launched a 17-hour non-stop service between Perth and London - a distance of almost 15,000 kilometers - earlier this year.

The A350-900ULR also has multiple temperatures zones for precise climate control throughout the passenger cabin, and over 16 million ambient lighting settings that can be programmed to help travelers adjust their circadian rhythms on specific routes.

Even after 17 hours flying on 4 hours rest they have remained cheerful and helpful.
The planes have been created to replace Boeing's older 777 series and use between 20% and 30% less fuel than the 777s did - which is a good thing amid rising 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.
Several carriers already use the newer A350-900s on their long-haul routes.
The plane also boasts of spacious "elegantly lit" interiors, higher-than-normal ceilings and wider seats aimed at reducing jet lag. However, the ULR stands for "ultra-long-range", and it can cruise for 11,160 miles. "Highly recommended if you are flying from Singapore to NYC in future". "We expect Singapore Airlines to regain market share, especially in the premium travel market".
