Take a flight over to Asia and come back to us with comments.
Depends on origin and connections.

Someone in LA can probably fly to some destinations in Asia in about the same amount of time as to Europe.

For long flights I prefer wide body aircraft. I have a hard time sitting for more than an hour or so even in first class. With wide body aircraft there are more places where I can stand for a while and not be in everyone's way.

Studies have shown that most people like a larger plane with two aisles and places to stand around when they get restless. But the City Data posters have no trouble being jammed into a tin box in the sky for an all night flight, it appears.

Oh yes, we're a motels crew. Or maybe we're just fiscally prudent, allowing us to do things like travel more frequently.

You seem to be deriving some false comfort from having a second aisle. I don't get restless and I don't walk around on planes.

Exactly. I recently took a 14 hour trip from DC to Tokyo ... I went to the lav a couple times, but that was the extent of the walking around. I never availed myself of the other aisle.

I just won't fly economy anymore. I prefer to fly private, but if that isn't feasible, I fly first in a 3-class plane.

Oh, same here. I dearly love not having to sit beside a stranger. If I'm going to snore and drool on someone (or vice-versa), make it someone related to me....lol.

I sure do! I like the two aisles so I can walk around when my legs start getting stiff and my back hurts. I just can't sit that long. With one aisle, it seems to always be blocked by a cart when I want to stroll.
