The 9 hour flight to bali was the longest one . I was going there with my wife to spend our honey moon. After my uncle had dropped us off at Cairo Airport, we headed to the check-in desk . We had only carry-on baggage as our return would have been to Dubai.Due to airline's constraints, we couldn't have had checked baggage.As I am Egyptian , I should have valid work permission but no one asked since my destination wasn't UAE where I work.
We didn't face any issue while going through the passport control. I was afraid to be asked about a Visa to Indonesia. We had been waiting in cost cafe before we got to the gate.In time we showed our passport and boarding pass and boarded the plane. Plenty space in the overhead locker was available to put our baggage.We sat down on our seats, fasten our seat belts and then the flight departed on time. we didn't enjoy the flight even though everything went as planned.Because it was a transit and day one.
The return to Dubai was okay.It was a night flight and we got the chance to sleep well because of the glare light inside.

I travel 2 or 3 times a year by plane. Usually I travel with my girlfriend or my circle of friends within Europe. My longest flight was from Frankfurt to St. Petersburg in Russia. It took me 4 hours in the Sky. In a couple of month I'll do my first long distance flight about 12 hours to San Francisco in the USA.

I have never been in air, but I'll do.

my fast travel in air bye sea plane in 2008 ,when i was worked in sidr rehabilitation project in borguna district in bangladeash ,suddenly one day i got offer from our donor people . it was unbelievable happiness in my life.

I had been a travel to turkey by plane long time ago. It got approximately 2 hour fly . I enjoyed from this travel and I hope I traveled to french one day.

No I have never travelled by air. I only know bus transport but I hope one day I will go to London, my favourite country. Can't wait to be there and see beautiful houses

Yes, my second flight was around 5 hours, I travelled from Guadalara,Mexico to Las Vegas, USA
I was a little nervious because before this flight have been passed 10 years

Yes , I have traveled by air many times, the longest flight was to go back my home, the plane was supposed to land in my nearby city, but because of the bad weather the plane landed in another distant city, so it was the longest ever.

I travel a few times a year to visit other countries and sometimes for a business. My longest flight was from Tehran to Amsterdam. The flight was direct and the duration was more than 5 Hours. In addition, with one-stop flight I have traveled from Tehran to Dusseldorf in 9:30 hours.

I've travelled by air many times. My first 4,30-hour flight was from Moskow to Barcelona with Aeroflot in December 1999 to see 'Ferias' and to celebrate Christmas. My shortest flight was from Minsk to Moskow with Belavia, it was a work-related journey and it took me about one hour. The first longest flight I've taken was from Minsk to Caracas, Venezuela with Lufthansa and transfer in Frankfurt, Germany, it was a work-related journey, too, and it took me 11,30 hours. My last longest flight was from Minsk to San Francisco with Lufthansa and transfer in Frankfurt took me 11,25 hours and was work-related, too. In all these flights I felt securely. But the latest situation with Boeing infuses the feeling of insecurity: in the XXI century with so high developed flight technologies people get smashed up in a flight accident over the matter of a mistake in soft ware.
