    I think @swaye is gonna win this one though.

    Nope. Hell you beat me. Longest single leg for me is LAX to Sydney. That said, it was 5.5 hrs to LAX from IAD (DC) with a layover. Painful.

    One year, 2017 I believe, I did the IAD to Tokyo (15 hours just shy of LAX-SYD I believe) to Singapore and back flight THREE FUCKING TIMS!!!!!

    It's 15 hours direct from Dulles to Tokyo, 5 hour layover, then another 7 to Singapore. It's 33 hours from home to hotel, and then do it all again in reverse 5 days later. And I did it 3 fucking tims in a calendar year. Lucky for me United splits that route with ANA, so at least on some legs I had hot Japanese geisha girls. Needless to say, I was Platinum 1K that year. I also did it all in lay flats in business class. Doing that flight back to back in coach is suicide worthy.
    What did you fly, and what was its fuel range? F15?
    F18

    About 500-600 miles depending on how you throttled it. It is not known for its legs.
    You ever fly out of Whidbey?
    I have flown into and out of Whidbey. It's pretty cool landing there as you are over the water until right before touch down.
    My hometown. You probably flew right over my house.

    did you do the night landings outside Coupeville on the 'carrier' - supposedly that place is laid out for aircraft carrier practice.

    I have sat there and watched them coming in doing touch and gos - kind of neat.

    Longest flight - since I am not a good flyer I refrain from flying - but from Denver to Seattle for number 2's mom's funeral, sat next to a guy that was some hick from western Nebraska. First time flying. He would not shut up, when food and drinks came I hid in a magazine. He ate most of my dinner, asking every time "Are you going to eat that?". Then when I go to finish my drink it is gone - he says "I thought you were done I gave it to the stewardess." Flight attendants had replaced stewardess years earlier.

    that is all

    DXB to IAD, only a shade over 7000 miles, but like 14.5 hours.

    I was coming from Singapore though, with s 5 hour layover in between, and I had stayed up all night the day before, so it was like 10,000 miles in total and I was jetlagged for like 3 days after I got back.

    Longest one leg was Frankfurt to LAX. A little less than 12 hours.
    Longest travel experience, flew overnight from Seattle to Frankfurt, picked up my car in parking lot, drive to Brussels airport (4 hours away) to pick up girlfriend, drive back home to Germany (2.5 hours back home). Fuck that was a long day.

    Most expensive plane ride....

    My goodness. Look at that stack. Garmin, Sandel, S-Tec, JPI. I'm not sure I've ever seen a PA-28 panel more decked out than that one. Very nice.

    No, she doesn’t.*

    4,835 miles

    Seattle to Copenhagen

    Something is rotten in a dirty rainy afternoon in Denmark?
    two-hour layover followed by a flight to De Gaulle in Paris
    I don’t think I’m allowed at De Gaulle anymore. The de_Jour sisters may or may not have set off a “minor” security incident in the main terminal.
    Okay, you can't leave us hanging like that.

    There's a great story there. Deserves own thread.

    One day. When you’re older.
    It's just around the corner. I'll be older on Thanksgiving Day.

    SFO to Singapore 8446 miles, 17 hours. 5 drinks, 5 movies

    i did the same flight and did it in business class on singapore air (nbd) probably had 3 slings before taekoff.


    i dont recall going through customs in sing and almost missed the return flight cause i was pounding johnnie gold in the sing air lounge at 6am.


    i havent flown 1st on sing/emirates/etc but air travel is pretty much downhill once you fly biz on a non-us carrier.
