Newark to Singapore: 10,371 miles Duration: 18 Hours From Newark to Singapore, travelers aboard this 18-hour jaunt have a self-service snack bar at their disposal as well as seats in a 1-2-1 configuration (one at each window and two in the middle). The reclining chairs offer immediate access to the aisle. Los Angeles to Singapore: 9,500 miles Duration: 18 Hours, 30 minutes This flight takes longer than the Newark one. The Newark flight path across the North Pole subjects the aircraft to less wind resistance, allowing it to travel faster than the flight from L.A., which crosses the Pacific Ocean.
