Maybe you missed the part where I said I've NEVER FLOWN FROM FLORIDA TO EUROPE! I've always flown from EWR/JFK/PHL and once from CLT.

If you fly in F, there aren't that many people to serve and you won't be disturbed by the FA's. You put your seat back into your little cocoon like space and go to sleep. The lights are dimmed as soon as the plane reaches cruising altitude.

I do know because you have ZERO idea of how things work in upper classes based on your posts about lights being on, noises, and more.

Relative term. Even if it's only a five hour flight you can still get a full four hours--which is enough for most people to get through a day on.

Sickandtiredofthis has never flown Business or First class before, as he has already admitted on another forum.

Take whatever he says with a very large pinch of salt.

I think he lives in his parents basement, and probably will for life.

It isn't your money, it is your parents' money. Stop pretending it's yours, Owen.

Howcome you don't fly direct from Florida? They have lots of direct flight to the major cities of Europe. It's those connnections that make the trip so much longer.

Because other than very limited flights from MCO I would have to go through MIA. No thanks. I stay loyal to OneWorld as often as possible, those miles pay off in the long run.

Additionally my travel partner is usually coming out of EWR or PHL and I meet them there for the onward journey. Sometimes I spend a couple of days in NY/NJ visiting friends and relatives before continuing onward.

Oh, one other thing. Concorde Room at JFK. 'Nuff said.
