I travel a few times a year to visit other countries and sometimes for a business. My longest flight was from Tehran to Amsterdam. The flight was direct and the duration was more than 5 Hours. In addition, with one-stop flight I have traveled from Tehran to Dusseldorf in 9:30 hours.

I've travelled by air many times. My first 4,30-hour flight was from Moskow to Barcelona with Aeroflot in December 1999 to see 'Ferias' and to celebrate Christmas. My shortest flight was from Minsk to Moskow with Belavia, it was a work-related journey and it took me about one hour. The first longest flight I've taken was from Minsk to Caracas, Venezuela with Lufthansa and transfer in Frankfurt, Germany, it was a work-related journey, too, and it took me 11,30 hours. My last longest flight was from Minsk to San Francisco with Lufthansa and transfer in Frankfurt took me 11,25 hours and was work-related, too. In all these flights I felt securely. But the latest situation with Boeing infuses the feeling of insecurity: in the XXI century with so high developed flight technologies people get smashed up in a flight accident over the matter of a mistake in soft ware.

I've travelled by air many times. And the longest flight I have taken was from Korea to Germany. To save my money, I had to stoped in Moscow and changed the flight. The airline had served good meals and all flight attendants were nice. That's why I have good impression to Russian airline. Even thought I didn't buy anything in the duty free, It was very delightful.

The longest flight i have taken was a flight to Saudi Arabia. I went there to perform Umra with my father and twin brother. The flight was directed to Jeddah airport. The aircraft's cabin was so cold; fortunately, the passengers were given a blanked so they could sleep comfortably. Also, we were served by good meals and we could ask for a drink if we were thirsty. The in-flight entertainment was amazing. It contained many good new films. Apparently, those convenience made us forgot the long trip time.

Yes, of course. The longest one as I remember was Tehran to pecan, It is about 8 hours long, so boring and I was so exhausted and in the last hour, I just thought about when I land and go for smoking outdoors. though when I arrived just jumping out smoking and in coming back to airport salon, I remembered that I didn't grab my wallet and it makes me freaked out.

I didn't do the task 4 because we can't put more one word in the box. When you want to add a word into the box the first move away

Hello Lucien,

To add a second word to a box, please drop it onto the box itself rather than onto one of the words already in the box. If you drop a word onto another words, the words will swap places. If you drop a word onto the box (which should change colour when you select a word) then you will add the new word without swapping.

I travelled by air in other years. It took 1 hour and 45 minutes from HCMC to THANHHOA province - my hometown. It was delayed 1 hour and I was tired. I don't like flying, it takes a lot of time for waiting, almost flights here are delayed at least 1 hour, Vietnamairlines is the best in our country, however their flights are usually delayed too,
