Do you think pax would prefer a two leg flight vs this longer flight? Seems like punishment for those in Economy. I can't handle a 5-6 hour GEO-JFK flight if I am in Economy, muchless this what 15-16 hour flight.
like what gemuser said, 15 is not abnormal. Australian East Coast to US West Coast, S.E. Asia (KUL
) to Europe - all very "familiar" to the travelling public in Australia (yes probably not so much to the South American travelling public) - this argument reminds me of family in the UK - they refuse to get on a flight longer than 4-5 hours, so all they do is travel around Europe - they automatically exclude North America, Asia, Africa and Oceania *yawn*
What's the other option? Flying to LAX
then flying down to South America? no thanks! Bollocks airport (and country/visa restrictions for many in Latin/South America) to transfer at and making the total transit time well over 24 hours...
