Long-distance travel is an ordeal at the best of times, so you can imagine the world's longest commercial non-stop flight ain't for the faint-hearted.

Qatar Airways has completed its first non-stop flight from Qatar's Doha to New Zealand's Auckland, with its Boeing 777-200LR touching down early Monday, after 16 hours and 20 minutes in the air.

Aware that the trip was a landmark occasion, passengers where keen to document the experience on social media. It's like being there IRL, but without the expensive tickets and possibility of deep vein thrombosis.
