    Data from the world's longest flight will be used to tackle jet-lag

    Data from the world's longest flight will be used to tackle jet-lag



    A record-breaking Qantas flight from New York to Sydney is the first of three test flights to research long-haul fatigue.

    The 50 passengers and crew followed a specialised diet and sleep regime - and the four pilots' alertness was assessed with brain-monitoring equipment .

    Qantas Captain Sean Golding says the data will be useful for planning future flight paths.
