The flight to Sydney, Australia from New York is a 9,900 mile (15989 km) long-haul trip that will take around 21 hours flying time with connecting stops within the United States mainland in either Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO) or Chicago Ohare (ORD) before flying onward across the Pacific Ocean to Australia. The flights are well covered by a number of American, Oceanic and Asian-based airlines. Major airlines that operate flights to Sydney (SYD) from New York (JFK) are: Air Tahiti Nui, US Airways, United Airlines, American Airlines, British Airways, Qantas Airways, Cathay Pacific, Etihad Airways, All Nippon Airways, Japan Airlines, Air New Zealand, Air Pacific and Malaysia Airlines.

There are also direct flights from New York to Sydney with an estimated duration of 21hrs 45 mins. However, you have to consider the fact that sometimes there are no seats left on direct flights between these two destinations or tickets are too expensive.

To fly from New York to Los Angeles would take approximately 4hrs 55 min and then the flight from Los Angeles to Sydney lasts around 16hrs 45 min. The connection time may probably be an hour and a half if it is one of those flights with a continuing service. The whole trip would last for around 23hrs 10 mins in total.
For people who would like to have a more exciting journey and a longer break from the flights might consider connecting flights with a stopover. Flights exiting New York (JFK) en route down under to Sydney have several exiting stopover options. Depending on your airline you can fly west across the Pacific for stopovers in Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, Hong Kong, Japan and New Zealand, or alternatively fly eastward and stopover in the Middle East at Abu Dhabi. This would be a real round-the-world trip with a flying time of around 27hrs.

Anywhere between 23 and 36 hours of travel, depending which route you take. Bit faster if you can go West (via LAX, SFO, Vancouver or Honolulu).

Also it's faster coming back (20+ hours of travel), because of the prevailing wind directions.
