world's longest flight to change

Just crossing the wires this morning, it sounds like Singapore Airlines will be giving up the title of flying the longest commercial route non-stop (currently Singapore to New York).

Here's the story from USA Today: http://usat.ly/P22Jpd

This was one of those flights that a lot of flying and points enthusiasts talk about, simply because you can get there without stopping and having to connect in all sorts of other cities (Moscow, Seoul, etc).  And, if you have enough points (or $), Singapore's product in business and first class is top notch.  I don't think I'm going to have the chance to fly the route before it stops (saving for the Maldives), but I'm hopeful that SIA will bring it back with some other option.
