The world record for the longest flight ever belongs to Bob Timm and John Cook, whose flight lasted from December 4, 1958-February 7, 1959. The two men left Las Vegas, NV in a Cessna 172 and flew for 64 days, 22 hours, 19 minutes, and 5 seconds — equivalent to circling the globe 6 times.
In December 2005, a Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner set the record for the longest commercial flight, flying 13,422 miles nonstop. The flight departed in Hong Kong on December 10, flew eastbound to London, and landed 22 hours and 40 minutes later.

The above answer is great, it has all the actual world records. The longest flights that are regularly made are by the Boeing 777-200LR, which makes the longest flights of any commercial airliner. The longest route currently in service is a non stop flight between Singapore and Newark, NJ taking 18 hours and 30 minutes.
This plane is an environmental stride, as it has 20% better fuel efficiency than other passenger airplanes.
