The longest fly I have ever taken by plane was from Paris to Mexico City, nearly thirty years ago. It wasn't my first flight, I used to fly quite a lot trough Europe for work. It was my first long flight on a such big plane, a Boeing 747 of AirFrance. The flight took 12 hours, however it was very exciting because I had a lot of time for reading, watching movie, eating and drinking champagne. I became afraid when the plane started to cross the Atlantic Ocean, I felt lost. But I realized very soon that I had to trust the pilot and the fate. You can't have your heart beating fast for so many hours.

The longest journey I've experienced by air was the direct flight from China to Kinsford airport, Sydney. It took at least over 11 hours. Honestly, it was quite tiring and boring because I had to sit in the seat, which was in the middle, with the belt, it was inconvenient to do some relaxing activities and go to the bathroom, especially nearing the strangers. In addition, it was my initial overseas journey so that I did not prepare any sleeping stuff such as pillows. Basically, I had to keep an uncomfortable posture to sleep. Fortunately, however, I enjoyed the meal on the plane, even it was tasty that I initially tasted the western style food, involving barbeque sausages, mashed potato and butter.

Yes, I have travelled by air quite a lot actually. The longest flight I've taken was when I travelled from Sweden to Oman. It was quite tiring. I don't enjoy long distance flights.

Nowadays, we gradually stop using a check-in desk but start using a check-in machine which saves [our] time. (*'-')b OK!

I travelled to Saudi Arabia 2 years ago. It's really nice had a chance to go abroad where i can learn different cultures and visit ancient unique places there. Hopefully, i could visit another countries in order to broaden my knowledge of certain countries cultures.

I have never travelled by air. But I have planned that someday, I will visit around the world, may be with my family or alone.
