    An expert says the world's longest flight may never venture into commercial skies



    Qantas has run a 19-hour test flight from New York to Sydney, collecting data from the 50 passengers and crew, and monitoring them during and after the flight.

    Aviation industry consultant Peter Morris says the research is groundbreaking, but may not be enough.

    He says they'll need to turn the research into an attractive proposition for travellers.
