The Graf Zeppelin flew around the world in 4 hops in 1929, racking up a total flying time of 12d12h13m and a total elapsed start-to-finish time of 21d5h31m. The longest leg was Friedrichshafen, Germany to Kasumigaura, Japan; 11,743 km in 101h49m. The Pacific leg was 9634 km in 79h54m.
This was less than a year after completing the zeppelin, which was the first intercontinental commercial airship in the world. There were no breakdowns during the entire operation, and no unexpected stops or layovers. There was a full load of paying passengers and commemorative mail. Passengers slept comfortably in cabins, ate meals in a dining room, and viewed the spectacular scenery through large windows (which could be opened) from an altitude of only around 300 meters.
Contrast that with a cluster foxtrot lasting 2 years, taking 17 hops, and a total of 22 days flying time.
