It would cost a bomb, though...

I flew BNE-SYD-DEL-FRA-LIS-LPA-FRA-GRU; EZE-AKL-BNE with stops in all those places on a Lufthansa ticket. That was 4 continents on the base fare.

I could take AirAsia from Japan to Hawaii and then Southwest further on from Hawaii to mainland USA. Probably the cheapest way to get across the Pacific.

I suppose I can check out my 747 desires flying on Korean to ICN. They're sending the -8 for Winter, and it only costs $500 Aussie dollars.

Closest I have come to a dream airplane trip: flying business class in a lie flat pod on a window side and with aisle access

On departure no queue at baggage drop or for security
All the airport shops have been closed and replaced by lots of comfortable spacious lounge areas
A comfortable window seat with plenty of leg room [on the plane that is] with no one sitting next to me.
Food and drink is plentiful and delicious
The plane doesn't crash, or worse get delayed or diverted
No queues at immigration
My hold luggage arrives and is first on the carousel.
