Question: Longest Flight You Ever Took?

I've only flown on one round trip from Greenville, SC to Washington D.C. and we were only up in the air about an hour plus about fifteen minutes of time while on the ground at both airports. So I had one of the shortest flights around. But I've heard of some pretty lengthy times up in the air for some folks.

How long was your longest flight?

In my younger days - I think it was in 1982 I made the maddest of flight plans and ended up on planes and transit lounges for 36 hours!
Brisbane to Sydney, then with Continental Airlines Sydney to Honolulu,
the another Continental Airline to Los Angeles with a connection after 3 hours of wandering around LAX terminals, then Eastern Airlines to Atlanta.

I was a walking zombie when collected at ATL International by friends.
I had gone thought heaps of time zones and was wide awake when I got to my hosts home. They were amazed that I was NOT SLEEPY but after my umpteenth breakfast, I started nodding and went to bed. I slept for over 24 hours. My hosts realised that I was alive but got their neighbour doctor to look in. The doctor's advice = Let him sleep!

Actually here in Australia we are accustomed to long haul flights but don't try the 36 hour stunt!! ha ha.

Another long flight was Sydney to Copenhagen with fueling stops at Bangkok and Teheran, that was with Thai International Airlines.
Flying west on long haul flights as this one was, is far better on the sleep deprivation problem than flying east!

After these two TRIALS, I then had stopovers on all long haul flights!
