I live in Moroni, Comoros Islands in the Indian ocean. In 2018 i travelled for my first time abroad by air and it was the longest flight i ve ever taken. I was going to Niamey, in Niger so I had to get across Africa to arrive there. We made a quick stop at Dar Es Salam for picking passengers, then we flew for four long hours from Dar to Addis Ababa. The nex day, we took another bigger plane from Addis to Niamey. Our landing at Niamey was a quick stop too, in fact the flight was going to land finally at Ouagadougou. I remember that time when the stewardess opened the gate and we felt that wave of hot air whelmed as, i wonder if wasn't arrived at hell instead. But it was cool. I have made the return trip three years after and it was not funny since I had caught a cold.

Personally, I had the privilege to travel by air a couple of times in my life. And I am very grateful for it because it gave me the experience of visiting distant places in the world. My longest flight lasted for around 2 and a half hours. I was taking a plane from Norway to Poland and had a great time. I definitely will travel more in my future

Yes, my first travel by air was 12 hours. I was from Rwanda to Thailand. I can say that it was not enjoyable travel. Traveling to Thailand for people from Africa it's mandatory to have yellow fever vaccination. When I was about to transfer to another flight at Nairobi airport I realized that I lost my yellow fever vaccination card. From that time I was stressed thinking that I was going to be returned back once reach the destination. Fortunately I had not been returned back, instead I had been vaccinated again. My journey ended well, but not sure if it was healthy having two vaccination in two weeks.

So excited for reading about the different experiences of everyone. I have traveled by air for tourism or business.
The first time I traveled by air was when I needed to come back from an island to my hometown. I could say that fortunately the plane has trouble with its batteries and they moved all the passengers to a bigger plane.
By the way, come back to the main topic of this post, my longest travel by air was when I went from Caracas to Pekin, China for training, it was last 19 hours with a scale in Frankfort. This also was the first time I was on board the biggest passenger airplane in the World.
Although this journey was quite tiring, I enjoyed it a lot. I wish I would have extended my time there to join more with this interesting culture.
