My trip round the world in first class!!

DFW-KIX AA157 777 seat 3J(?) what can I say the 777 was great, small take off run considering we weighed 609,000lbs... we only used 6,000 feet of runway.. flight time-13 hrs
had a lay over of 4 hrs at kix, i took like 40 pics there
KIX-HKG CX703 A330 seat(5A) first time on an Asian carrier, and on an a330... it was cool, i even got to sit in on the landing into HKG, which was really cool! flight time 3 hrs
spotted at HKG, was alright, somewhat disappointed though, got tour of airport, almost arrested.. (see post in the regular aviation forum)
HKG-BKK CX751 777-300.. seat 8K.. 777-300 was alright, same service, felt the same as a regular 777.. flight time 2.5 hrs
BKK-BOM CX751 777-300 same seat same everything... flight time 3 hrs
BOM-LHR BA138 747-200 first time on BA and a 747.. the 200 was quite loud to me.. it was chelsea rose paint.. left BOM at 2:30am seat 8A.. flight time 9 hrs
LHR-ORD AA87 777 same seat as going to kix, nothing unusual.. flight time 8.5 hrs
ORD-DFW AA2235 S80, smallest plane of the journey first class on AA domestic sucks!! seat 4E flight time 2.22hrs..

How long was the flight from Dallas to Osaka(KIX)? I'm just wondering since I go to Japan sometimes and I was thinking about flying on that route.

It was a little over 13 hrs... maybe like 13hrs 5 mins..? we were as high as 41,000 and goin as fast as 615mph at one point... before the flight i went to the cockpit and ask a million questions and i asked what we were cruising at and the pilot said mach .84 i said geez thats pretty fast he said "yeah this thing hauls ass!" its not too bad though except they close all the windows during the flight even though its day light, and i like looking out the window..

How did you manage to get First class on all the flights? I'm sure without miles, that would have cost 20 or 30 thousand dollars.
