I'm surprised no one has mentioned the long TATL flights. JFK- FRA close to 7 hrs in the air with gaining 6 more on the ground. Unless you can sleep that whole flight away in economy that's a tough one. Coming back was great though. Around 8 hrs only losing 2 on the ground. Made for a great day.

IB3351 CAI0020 – 0440MAD 319 x135
I flew a couple of times that route before it was axed (similar timing) and it was painful. Those Iberia A319s are torture - tightest legroom ever - and the schedule is dreadful.
According to the data provided:
HZ 5497 departs Incheon at 2:26am (KST) and arrives at Yuzhno Sakhalinsk at 7:11am (+11 GMT)
Total flight time clocked at 2 Hours and 45 Minutes
An incredibly mundane flight made even more mundane by making it a red-eye flight

I don't think it's that bad now is it? You still have around 5 hours to sleep.
