The longest flight I have taken by air was from Vienna to Hanoi, which took 18 hours altogether with the transfers in Quatar and Taipei. I really enjoyed that.

In my last job I used to travel regularly, at least twice a month. In my new job, I hardly ever travel. The largest flight I have ever taken, was from Manchester UK to Miami

Sure, I have traveled by air. The longest flight I took was from Colombia to Paris. It was more than 6 hours, that trip was with my wife and Paris is a wonderful place to be .

Yes, I travelled by air many times. I used to travel by plane at least twice a year. The longest flight I took was a flight that departed from Seville in Spain to Liege in Belgium. I was pregnant in my last trimester and even though I was accustomed to travelling, at this stage of pregnancy, I found it exhausting but couldn't postpone it.

Hi guys, I really enjoy taking the place, it's always good memories and sounds like vacations, discovering new places, cultures, foods... The sad part stay the return ;) The longest one I took was to reach Accra in Ghana, little bit more than 7 hours with a stop in Togo.

Dear Sir, what do they mean Compelling and Privilege here? 1. The benefits of computer use in education are COMPELLING. 2. The negative aspect of the freedom to express you won ideas is that some people abuse this PRIVILEGE.

Hello amit_ck,

You can find the meanings of 'compelling' (2) and 'privilege' (2) in the dictionary. In the future, please tell us what definitions you have found -- we can confirm if you've understood correctly or not.

All the best,

There are several meaning of compelling like reason/argument/case/need/desire/urge/very interesting or exciting, so that you have to pay attention Privilege means very interesting or exciting, so that you have to pay attention/something that you are lucky to have the chance to do, and that you enjoy very much/a situation in which people who are rich or of a high social class have many more advantages than other people/a situation in which doctors, lawyers etc are allowed to keep information about their discussions with their patients or clients secret from other people/the right to do or say something unacceptable without being punished, especially in Parliament Sir, If I rephrase my previous examples of Compelling and Privilege what will be meaning there.
