    Emirates has bumped Qantas Airways out of the top spot for the world’s longest flight. Emirates took over the title Tuesday with the launch of its 8,819-mile nonstop route between Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and Auckland, New Zealand.
    That drops Qantas’ 8,576-mile route between Dallas/Fort Worth and Sydney, Australia – the previous record holder – into second place, according to flight-data provider OAG. Delta’s 8,434-mile nonstop route between Atlanta and Johannesburg, South Africa, slides to No. 3.
