Singapore Airlines bringing back 19-hour non-stop flight to New Jersey

NEWARK, New Jersey -- Singapore Airlines has taken back the title of flying the world's longest flight.

The airline resumed operating non-stop between Singapore and Newark, New Jersey, last week. Each journey takes 19 hours.

Airbus built an "ultra-long range" version of its A-350 jet for this flight, but something you won't find on this flight is a standard economy seat.

There's only business class and premium economy seats, which offer more space.

Singapore last operated non-stop flights between Singapore and the New York area in November 2013.
