I have been lucky enough to go to Europe three times, so those six flights were my longest. Look at the thread starter for my longest of them. Anyway, the flight there always seems longer to me than the flight back, even though the flight there is usually shorter. I think it is because I always try to sleep, but I have only been successful once. Last time, I took and Ambian and a Benadryl and still could not fall asleep. I just sit there, unable to get out of my seat because everyone is sleeping, with nothing buy darkness out the window, and no movies. It's still fun and it's not like it seems like an eternity. When I get off in Europe, I can tell I was on a plane for a while, but it doesn't seem like I was on it as long as I was. Things have kind of evolved with the return trips for me. The first time I went to Europe, I was going to visit my uncle and aunt in Brussels, so I flew DL from ATL to BRU on an MD-11. That was the only time I slept going to Europe. I slept probably 2 or 3 hours of the 7 hours and 15 minute flight, so it didn't seem as long. Anyway, coming back took forever. Up until then, except for the flight coming to BRU which I slept a part of, my longest flights had been my many trips from CVG or ATL to SAN (I lived in Cincinatti until I was 7, then moved to ATL; I have a lot of family in San Diego) which were about 4 hours max. Those had always seemed long. On that flight back from BRU though, I remember having flown for about 4 hours and realized that although I had survived one flight to SAN, I still had more than another one to come. AHHHHHHH! It took forever, but eventually we made it to ATL. The flight was 8 hours 54 minutes. It might not have seemed so long if there wasn't a huge delay in BRU. They boarded us in BRU and then we sat for 2-3 hours before we took off. Well, that flight from ZRH was my second return flight from Europe. I had actually started in ATH that morning, but connected in ZRH. That flight seemed pretty long, but I enjoyed it still. My last transatlantic flight returning from Europe was CDG-ATL on a DL 777. I was still up for 4 more hours when we landed! I was loving it! It felt like about 3 hours. There was only one slow hour on that flight. When the flight took off, not too long after that, the first movie was showing. Before I knew it, the flight was already 3 hours underway. The next 30 minutes to an hour were the slow ones. I just read. Airshow was not working. Then the next movie came on. It was horrible, so I just tried to sleep, to no success. After my 20 minutes of trying to fall asleep (I'm not very patient trying to fall asleep but going to Europe that time, I flew BA from ATL to LGW to BCN and I tried for 2 hours to sleep going to LGW), I read some more. Again, before I knew it, it was 6 hours into the flight and another movie was on. I watched it. After that the plane began to decend into ATL. About 30 minutes before landing, I went to the bathroom, but upon emerging from there, I got talking to a flight attendant. We talked until about 10 minutes before landing, and then I sat down. At that point, the turbulence got to be the worst I have ever felt, but that was fun for me! The person in our group who happened to be sitting in front of me got airsick. Fortunately he didn't throw up. The plane then landed, went to the gate, and we slowly cleared customs.
