If you don’t mind spending a number of hours on the same plane, long-haul flights are a convenient option where you don’t have to worry about connecting flights.

What is a long-haul flight?

The definition of a long-haul flight varies between different airlines and organizations, and can be defined by either flight distance or flight time. For example, American Airlines defines long-haul flights as flights with a distance of more than 3000 miles.

When it comes to defining long-haul flights by time, IATA (International Air Transport Association) names flights with a flight time of at least six hours long-haul. If the time exceeds 16 hours, the flight is considered an ultra-long-haul flight.
