Well the girl has her math right. I think she should be the one falling out her chair with laughter at your confusion. You're doing your math wrong because you're forgetting the different time zone for departures and arrivals.

Let's See. Keep in mind that all travel schedules are given in local times.
BKK - KWI is 3069 nm and KWI - JFK 5520nm.
BKK is GMT +7, KWI is GMT +3, JFK is GMT -5.
So, 0300 in BKK is 2300 in KWI which will make the flight some 7hrs and 15mins.
0905 in KWI is 0105 at JFK and that would make the flight some 14 hours.
The inverse happens on the return
JFK - KWI departs JFK at 2200 which is 0600 of the following day in KWI, which makes the flight 13hr 25 mins
KWI - BKK departs KWI at 2340 which is 0340 of the following day in BKK, which makes the flight 7hrs 10 mins.

Quoting MGASJO (Reply 3): She definetly had some laughs after you left.
Dear oh dear, I just tried to share this with you as a funny thing I saw on another forum. I think it's clear enough by the way I am saying:
Quoting Levent (Thread starter): Above is the calculation of flight times made by some dopey girl on a travel forum. I fell off my chair from laughter... just had to share it with you guys.
Okay Levent... Mexicana757 successfully managed to ruin your joke LOL... mexicana, that was his point!! The girl forgot the time zone difference and he liked to share that with us... OMG the joke lost its essence
Quoting 7LBAC111 (Reply 7): And people wonder why travel agents get a reputation....!?!
He didnt say it was a travel agent, he said "on a travel forum", i.e., just like this one LOL...
