  1. When I was 7, 12, and 14, I crossed the Pacific as a military dependent on 4-engine props between Tokyo and San Francisco. That meant a 12 hour flight, a one hour refueling stop, a second 12 hour flight, a second one hour refueling stop, and a third 12 hour flight, for a trip time of 38 hours. I would gladly have traded that for a 19 hour and 16 minute flight.

  2. Boeing 737 Max can cut any long flight to less than an hour.

  3. A complimentary percocet would be nice

  4. I've got a question.Where are the federal carb police on airplanes?Are they not pumping exhaust into the ionosphere?Combustion engines are regulated to the point that their just about junk.Not to mention that the plane was huge and only had a few people on board. crap like this makes no sense.Something has to change in this world .There shouldn't be 700,000 planes in the sky per day with only a few people on board per plane.

  5. 10 hours in… "oops someone left a cell phone in their luggage time to turn around…"

  6. 19 hours in the air ! That's redefining " ✈ Lag " No thanks !

  7. All airlines should do this for 6 hour flights or longer lol
