    I took a flight from Cincinnati to Heathrow... that SUCKED. I can't sleep in a chair and the inflight movie was the Horse Whisperer I think.

    Well I was supposed to hit a connecting flight at Heathrow to Sophia Bulgaria for a total of like 15 hours. I started in Dayton on a puddle jumper plane to Cincinnati. When I got to Cincinnati we were delayed... and delayed... and delayed until they came and told us they couldn't get the engines to start. So on a trans-Atlantic flight we were told they couldn't get the engines to start! Talk about fucked up. Then after like 3 hours they said they changed the batteries for all the engines and we were good to go... but then by the time I got to London, my next flight had already left so they had to put me in a hotel for the night and catch the flight the next morning because only one flight a day went from London to Sophia. It really fucked things up.

    Try going from San Francisco to Denver by coach. That was 30 something hours. Longest I ever did was Bremen to Pontevedra in Europe, 40 something hours. That was before cheap airlines were around.

    Worst flight I took was Osaka to San Francisco change planes (about an hour layover) and on from San Francisco to Frankfurt. After that you are literally butturt.

    I do one non-stop about every other month that’s nearly 17 hrs from dfw. Then a two hour drive with another border control to process through. You just want to wash the flight off of you as soon as you can.
