ZNK was charted to do a freight only run with ZND carry the remainder along with pax, apparently 450k of vaccine weighs a bit.

Government repatriation flight - will operate EZE direct to DRW as I understand it.

yep, longest commercial flight

Quote:
The longest ever commercial Qantas flight is scheduled to take place next month as part of the federal government's repatriation flights for stranded Australians.

A Qantas Boeing 787 Dreamliner will fly from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to Darwin non-stop on October 5, exceeding the distance of Qantas' previous longest commercial flight, from Perth to London.

The repatriation flight to bring stranded Australians home from South America will cover about 14,680 kilometres, slightly further than the non-stop Perth to London 14,498 kilometre route. It will take close to 18 hours.
