Singapore Airlines bringing back 19-hour nonstop flight

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. That journey is scheduled at 19 hours.

Airbus built an "ultra-long range" version of its A350 jet for this flight. Something you won't find on this flight: a standard economy seat. There's only business class and premium economy seats, which offers more space.

Singapore last operated nonstop flights between Singapore and the New York area in November 2013.
