Hoping to fly from NYC to Singapore? Better hurry - Singapore Airlines is dropping the world's longest flight:

HONG KONG (CNNMoney) -- Singapore Airlines will stop flying the world's longest route next year as the company phases out the aircraft used to make the journey. The ultra long-haul flight, which runs nonstop from Singapore to Newark, New Jersey, typically takes just under 19 hours to complete. In total, the trip covers roughly 10,000 miles -- and sometimes takes passengers over the North Pole. The airline uses a roster of aging Airbus A340-500 aircraft to fly the route, but the company said Wednesday those planes were being sent back to Airbus as part of a deal to purchase five Airbus A380s and another 20 A350s. The deal is valued at $7.5 billion. The A340-500 models will remain in service until the fourth quarter of 2013. Nonstop services from Singapore to Los Angeles will also be eliminated.
