Don’t do it Qantas. Yes this maybe the future of air travel but who really wants to be stuck in a metal tube for 18+ hours flying from New York to Sydney and back?? I mean I know I would like to get out and at least stretch my legs once in that long span.
Multi-segment flights aren't going away, so you will still be able to book a flight with a layover.

Market demand will determine whether these ultra-long range/ultra-long duration flights are here to stay. Qantas asked their customers and decided to launch these flights based on that. I personally don't mind such long flights as long as the creature comfort is up to par -- I'd rather be on a plane relaxing than get off a plane, find the next flight, possibly hustle just to make the connection and hope the luggage makes it, and go through boarding again. If you are going off-airport during the layover, you also have to deal with customs twice more -- no thank you.
