I've traveled by plane many times in the past. The last trip was from Cancun, in México, to Montreal, in Canada.
I don't like to flight, but there is no other way to do this trip in 4 hours : )

I've never travelled by plane. I think travelling by plane and looking at the beautiful sky is the best feeling ever. I wish I could travel at once.

Yes I have a travel by plane when I was a child, the first time that I did, and I think that I have more memories is when me and my family went to the beach.

The longest fly that I had taken could be to the US, I went to california.

The last time I took a plane it was to my destination of Cyprus, where I'm currently studying. It was the first time I took the plane. There was so much information to process around me I couldn't remember everything. But I can say it was an interesting experience and I would like to travel more in the near future because we also meet fantastic people.

Hello,
Yes, I have travelled by air, by plane, more than one time.
I have flighted to Mallorca, Paris, Strasburg and Brazil.
I've been there several times and every flight took about twelve hours! I remembre all the passengers spent time differently (reading, listening to music, speaking, sleeping...) and that we were very happy once the plane arrived. Even some people prayed to thank the arrival!

I never travel by a plane. I live in a small town. Travelling by plane is expensive in my country yet. I wish to fly, but I don't get opportunity.

I have traveled by plane at once in my life. I went to Cambodia from Yangon with my team to compete for Asean Game. Travel by plane is very nice experience and try my friend.

Hello!
Why does duty-free belong to Things in both an airport and a plane? Is there any mistake?

Hello proshkinadezhda,

Duty-free shopping is often available in both airports and on international flights, or at least it was last time I flew. This is why it belongs in that group.

All the best,

I've traveled by plane many times. However, they are domestic flights, so the longest flight that I've ever taken is only 2 hours long.

Yes I did travel by air. My longest flight was from Istanbul to Nairobi in 2019. Before boarding on the plane I had expended some times in the duty free as I came earlier in the airport that day. It took us almost 7 long hours to reach our destination, fortunately the journey was pleasant as the hostesses were extremely kind and both meals were tasty.

Well I love flying to travel long distances. It's fast and pretty cheap. For another transport service - a ship for example, or the train - is much more expensive.

A couple of years ago, I went to the United States of America, specifically, to Green Bay, Wisconsin. First of all, I had to get a plane from Arequipa to Lima, then to Houston, and finally, to my destiny. All of that, take me approximately 12 hours, considering the fact I waited for the departure of my flights at the airport of Lima and Houston. But, otherwise, it was a great experience seeing for the first time new places.

That's the reason because I choose a flight to one of the bigger cities. You can fly direct and enjoy a shorter traveling time. After a one or two-day city sightseeing I rent a car and start a roadtrip to the destinations on my bucketlist.

I have travelled by plane many times, but I always remember one special trip, from Shanghai to Santiago of Chile, were roughly 28 hours of fly due to transfer, first leg was Shanghai to San Francisco,USA, second leg to Miami and finally the third leg to Santiago, it was very very tiring, because one thing was the fly and the another was the change of hours zone, Chile have a difference of 12 hours with China.

Yes. I have been to Taiwan by plane.
This was my first time to travel abroad so I was nervous even at the check-in desk and the gate at the airport.
However, I could enjoy the meal of the plane and waching some animes on a small TV.
The trip itself was awesome but I wish I'd have brought a carry back as I had a big hand bag, which was uncomfortable.

I like traveling by plane very much, above all if it is a business journey. To flight is so comfortable, rapid and secure, moreover you can listen to music, watch a film, sleep or work during the flight. The only negative aspect is that you are off-line thus disconnected from the rest of world....but maybe it isn't a disadvantage at the end....
