    Default Flights over 10+ hours (i.e. do you hate flying? regardless cabin choice)

    Who else hates flying when it's over 10+ hours flights? Regardless if you're in economy or business/first class... To me, it still doesn't make a difference, still sucks shit being stuck in the plane bored as fuck, dizzy as fuck.

    Some ppl say they love flying business/first class/airport lounges. IMO (for flights over 10+ hours), that's like saying just add more bread to a shit sandwich, makes it feel like you're eating less poo. (purely imo; just sucks regardless)

    Long flights donít bother me.

    Business/first makes it much much much better. Booze and space. Nuff said.

    Long flight unable to move and stretch is pretty uncomfortable.

    Sitting on the top deck of a Lufthansa 747, with in flight WIFI and work on my laptop - I can keep busy for a very long time. Then a snooze followed by snacks.

    Make SURE you drink a lot of water.

    If it's economy, yes I hate it. If it's Business or better, I wouldn't say I enjoy it, but I certainly don't mind it. You can turn the seat into a lie-flat bed and take a nap, walk around (some planes have bars), eat good food (usually), watch some entertainment (either on their equipment or yours, plus planes with wifi now), etc. Normally only get to fly Business on Aeroplan reward flights (mini-RTW).

    Not so much hating long flights but I hate connecting flights and having to wait and airports, I really try to avoid that as much as possible..

    I basically use my avion points to cover the base ticket costs, then pay the remainder to upgrade to business.

    Works out about the same as just paying for economy.

    Luckily the girls I have dated are all about that cheap economy class flight but then they hit me up good when we go shopping so end of the day, same shit diff pile. Just a matter of how you wanna spend your coin. Planning a trip right now with one of the gfs and she gets a buddy pass hookup so she'll be in business class while I hang out in economy haha

    Personally I still haven't done it and don't think I care for it. The difference in price is just too much for me to justify.

    It's one of those bucket list things you have to experience. Flying to Japan in business class was by far the most luxurious thing I've ever done and it far exceeded my expectations. You just get pampered with 5 course meals, amazing snacks and wine/drinks list at anytime and pampered like crazy. I didn't wanna get off the plane haha.

    I think for the price difference I'd rather get pampered at the Park Hyatt and have my Lost in Translation moment

    I donít know where you guys are buying your tickets ???

    I paid $2990 for a business Pod to London last year. We just got back from Florida and our pods were $1450 a ticket with United.

    I still try and find the deals! Haha

    I'd think would be great adventure/chase for you to sneak into business during flight and squeeze into her pod.

    Commercial business/first class isn't as "expensive" comparatively as in the 90's, as movers and shakers and rappers move into private jets/timeshare jets. My point still stands, long flights = suck ass

    That's an awesome deal.

    I remember my Spain ticket was something like $2500 but Biz class was $6k haha Fk that noise. That's what i mean, that extra $3500 X2 will pay for the trip itself.

    But hey Elon Musk is working on the Rocket tech where we can blast to London in 30mins

    On my last half dozen international flights, the business seats were usually 10x more than economy. I generally site in premium economy.

    I've flown first class once.

    The major wealth demarcation line is whether or not you can fly private exclusively. If you are under that line, then everybody has the same shit (a car, a house, vacations, etc), it's just different variations of nice. Flying private - that's life changing. I'm not jealous of rich people...but I am jealous of people I know who have enough money to fly private.
