Boeing to attempt world’s longest flight

Boeing plans to break the record for the longest non-stop flight by a commercial jet — a 12,500-mile trip that is to begin in Hong Kong, fly over northern Canada and land in London, the company said Wednesday. The plane will have 35 passengers, including Boeing representatives, journalists and customers. By doing this they hope to break the current world record of 10,500 miles (London to Sydney in 1989).
