Default Re: What's the Longest Flight You've Ever Been On?

pretty weird coincidence, but i think i might be on that flight. only LA is my mid-point as i'll be flying from london.

it'll be my longest flight by a large margin too. all the advice in this thread is useful.

Would absolutely hate to be on a 10 hour flight, with limited space.

6'4?

Just need to get yourself some exit row aisle seats and you'll be fine.

Ha. LA's my midpoint as well. But I'm leaving from Pittsburgh.

Only 4 hours, from Columbus, OH to LA.

Never been overseas, and anywhere I go, I'd rather just drive (as evidenced by 3 Ohio to Florida drives in the past 8 months, and one coming up next month).

I take 77 through SC, which then meets up with 95. 77 is pretty awesome.

I've also taken 75, but even for a roadtrip warrior like myself who loves long stretches of open road, I gotta admit, the stretch from Tampa to Atlanta may be the most boring stretch of road in the history of man kind. If I ever go to Atlanta for anything, I may just fly that.

Haha. I've never been on 77 to my knowledge. 95 is just too conveniently and inconveniently close for me to ignore. At leas you can never get loss.

20 hours, from JFK to Incheon International Airport. Korean Air is direct flight non-stop, so there was no break until the transfer at Incheon.
