United is planning two of the world’s longest 787 flights for later this year. The airline is offering a Los Angeles-Melbourne flight starting 26 Oct. that will travel 7,927 miles, currently the longest route to be operated by the 787 family. United will also begin service 9 June on a San Francisco-Chengdu flight, which would not only be the first non-stop flight ever from the U.S. to Chengdu, but also would be the longest 787 flight to operate non-stop in both directions, until the Melbourne flight begins. The San Francisco-Chengdu route is 6,587 miles. (Image Credit: Wikipedia)
