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.

I traveled to India by plane. It was a very exciting trip. But when we landed in New Delhi we had to wait 9 hours to wait for another flight to Hyderabad. After two hours of flight, we arrived there. In general, I had to fly with the plane six times during this trip.

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.
