    Bleep! After doing SQ22 (17Hr. 34Min) twice, now all I need now is a reason to go to PTY.

    I've done the DFW-SYD route. It didn't feel that long on QF in J. When it was time to leave, I felt like I could use a few more hours of eating and sleeping. :cool:

    Personally I'm a short haul flug person. Starting in the olden days last row of the plane (to be closer to the galley and FA's) Even today I prefer many short flugs to one long one. SQ22 was as close to great flug as I have ever been on and I was going nuts about half way there!
