Various tutorials are around the forum that explain things like that. Have a look around:

Hello
Probably i am not explicitly clear about the schedule on how  a plane can start on the same day everyday when its a 31 hour flight. If the experts here are saying its feasible then i need to dig around. I have marked the routes in question

Hi,
The answer is really here:

Note that he needs at least 4 planes to fly such a route you circled. He most probably uses 7, which he uses on other routes the rest of the week.

And if you are not interested in reading my tutorials(the second post in Helix's link directly addresses the topic), here is the short version :

In the game, you can create 7 times the same route with the same number, for the 7 days of the week, and associate them with 7 different aircraft.

On the attached screens, you'll see a full 7-planes, 7-days schedule I just made in GW2. Each airplane makes 15 flights per week, to 15 different destinations. I did put the focus on Porto's flight. I've got 7 differrent routes to Porto, one for each day of the week, leaving Warsaw at 0525. They are attached to 7 different aircraft. On the route screen, they just look like if it was one single flight. And 48-hours flights to Australia would look the same, as I'd set them up as 7-planes, 7-days schedules as well(just, obviously, there would be far less flights per plane).

When I first read gazz's tutorial I was still a bit confused as to how it was supposed to appear, but it all made sense when I actually started making my own 7 day schedule. As he mentioned it works the same for longer flights that would overlap each other, here are my 41 hour ORD-HKG flights.

Shortly after one plane has departed Kai Tak for Chicago another is leaving from Chicago and they fly past each other en route. This way Flt# GN1623 departs daily at 2255, each day on a different plane.
