Surely you have flown from NYC to British Isles?

I have, but that is irrelevant. I don't think you understand time zones and/or basic geometry.

Quite, and the service is most excellent.

You are right about the food but again thats your choice.. I like to eat but found it weird how I eat dinner and breakfast 2 hours apart.

As I said earlier its easy to adjust if your coming from Florida or going further into Europe but for me most of my flights go from New York to Ireland which is about 3 hours shorter so obviously less time to sleep.

I can cope with 5 hours of sleep but not alongside jumping ahead 5 timezone hours. Hence me booking the dayflight.
Florida is in the same time zone as NYC, and I have never flown from Florida to Europe. My flights have always been from EWR/JFK/PHL and once from CLT.

I have never had dinner and breakfast served so close together, and as I said, you don't need to eat.

Anyway i'm tired and not in the mood of arguing. The flights that I take from America to my home are quite short, i've already said that there is minimal time to sleep with all the racket and lights so I don't need to justify myself any longer. (For example, my last fight jumped from 11pm to 9am in only 5 hours.. Quite an adjustment in such a short time)

It's not relevant anymore as I have taken action and will be flying home on a dayflight this year.

I understand that there are much longer flights from California and so on.. But the ones I take are short.
Book a first or business class ticket and the lights will be dimmed after departure and there will be minimal racket. No carts, the FA's bring each tray and drink individually from the galley.

I'm not sure he's ever flown anywhere without his parents, and he's making excuses as to why he doesn't fly in enhanced cabins--because he's not the one paying for the ticket.

Obviously, its more or less on the same longitude.

Flights from Florida to Europe can be 8 hours so thats plenty of time to sleep. Your rightyou don't have to eat but you do have to suffer with lights and cabin crew running up and down the isle serving it.

Why do I have to justify MY money and MY spending to YOU? YOU don't know what cabins I fly in because you don't know me!
