My husband and his family have done the LA to Singapore one- quite a few times, actually! The longest I have done is SF- Taipei which was 14 hours. Then straight after that I had to go Taipei-Denpasar which was 6 hours, then Denpasar- Timika (5 hrs), then finally Timika-Jayapura (1 hr). I was soooooo ready to get off the plane after that run of flights!

I’ve done Edinburgh to Lima, Peru, via Amsterdam. It was KLM when I was 16 so I just watched movies the whole flight, loved it 🙂

The longest I’ve ever done is Newark to Tokyo, which is about 14 hours.  It was pretty brutal, and Mr Elk was MISERABLE! 6’4 and stuck in a tiny seat for that long unable to properly stretch your legs has gotta suck!  It wasn’t TOO bad for me, though.

When I was in middle school I went to New Zealand to visit my uncle who lives there with my family and in total we flew for 18 hours…BWI to LAX, LAX to Auckland, NZ. My sister’s feet were in my lap the whole time but I got to watch a bunch of movies!

The longest flight I’ve done so far was 9 hours. Our honeymoon will be a total of 19 hours of flying, 1 7-hour leg and one 12 hour leg. Seriously wish I could just medicate myself and pass out the entire 12 hours but knowing me no matter how much drowsy gravol I take I’ll be wide awake the entire time.

I have flown to Thailand and Hong Kong. I thought it was cool, I had an empty seat next to me the whole time, I watched movies and drank wine (free alcohol on international flights). The food was not good though. I also like long car trips though, I am like a little kid!

I think my longest leg was LAX to Aukland at 12 hours, or maybe LAX to Bangkok, cant remember how long that one was.  But the longest entire travel time was probably about 30 or 34 hours.. BOS -> LAX -> AUK -> CHC.
