Hi there, I'm afraid not. It's too far, the planes need to refuel. It's usual to stop once in Asia, eg Singapore, Hong Kong or Kuala Lumpur.

You will need to do at least one stop- planes can't fly that far without refilling with fuel. Normally a stopover is welcomed as you get a chance to stretch your legs!

As others have said, not possible.

I found it best to fly as late as possible, my dd's slept quite well.

I find getting the evening flight with Emirates to Dubai over night, then its a two hour stop over and then straight to Melbs. Landing about 6 in the morning, is the best - early to bed on day of arrival and then fresh as daisy the next day. - have a great holiday
