> Singapore has five brand new Airbus 340-500 used for the first-ever
> nonstop commercial flight from Singapore to the US (Los Angeles).
> The flight time is a little over 16 hours, arriving on the other
> side of the world at exactly the same time as takeoff, 1600. The
> A340-500 is the only aircraft in the Singapore Airlines fleet with
> a so-called corpse cupboard, designed to store the body of anyone
> who dies in flight.
