SFO to Auckland, New Zealand on Air New Zealand. 12 hours. It was actually a nice flight and I slept for about 10 of those hours. I'm amazed I was able to do that because I'm rarely able to fall asleep on planes. it was a godsend

How could you physically do that? I CANNOT cope over 8 hours, it just kills me it is unbearable.

Its not the fact that I can't sit still its the fact that I get all stiff and sore.

Did San Francisco to London a couple times, which I believe was around 12 or 13 hours. In February I flew from LAX to Tokyo (10 hours), had an hour-and-a-half layover (have to leave the secure area and then go back through security), and then flew to Singapore, which was about 8 more hours. Turned around and came back two weeks later. That was a nightmare, but it was one of the new Dreamliners between Tokyo and LAX, which was very cool.

LAX to Sydney Australia which I believe was about 12-13 hours.

LAX to Auckland, New Zealand which was about 11 hours.

LAX to Seoul, South Korea which I think was about 11-12 hours.

LAX to Dublin, Ireland which was perhaps 10 hours.

Newark-Delhi - 14H 40 minutes. (This was on top of flying DC-Newark.)

That wasn't too bad, though. My worst flight was a double-red eye. DC-London 6ish hour wait - Barcelona few hours wait - Johannesburg.
