  • This 2017 documentary tells the story of the long haul flight. Step inside the Qantas A380 as they make the 11,000 Mile journey from London, England to Sydney, Australia. Each year over 300 million passengers fly over 6 billion miles on long-haul flights. Like flying hotels they transport people across the world in comfort and style but what does it take to keep the giants in the sky?

    I think that it’s because they are talking about the longest flight from a passenger's point of view, and who spends the most time with them are the flight attendants. Pilots do have a huge responsibility indeed, so do the flight attendants.

    What an incredible documentary!!! Beautifully woven with real-life human stories, which are very touching as well. .From an infant to an old man, from animals to machines, from outside crews to inside crews, all nicely covered. Very well done. I have taken many 16-18 hour flights and able to appreciate every moment shown in this documentary. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this movie. Thank you for making this documentary.

    Flying is often so emotional, the goodbyes and then the reunions and sometimes only goodbyes.

    The stories of the passengers were the most spellbinding of this documentary. I liked how this documentary showed the inner workings of the airline industry, baggage handling, cargo, pets, catering, services, maintenance and of course a stellar crew. You cant say one job is harder than the next as in some of the comments I read. Every person makes the flight successful, from the folks monitoring weather on the ground to the flight crews. Being a member of the industry, a commercial airline pilot m...
