Boston to LHR is usually less than 6 hours wheels up to landed at Heathrow. I do that flight frequently. In the other direction against the jet stream, it's at least an hour more in the air. LAX, SFO, and SEA are against the jet stream are longer flights than BOS-LHR with the tail wind.

We were talking about changing it up at Christmas this year and meeting my sister & brother-in-law in Hawaii instead of the usual Vancouver Christmas. I looked at the new flight and concluded that there's no way I'm willing to sit that long in an economy seat and the seat reviews on SeatGuru are awful. If we do Hawaii, we'll leave from Vancouver.

I remember a non-stop from Honolulu to Atlanta back when smoking was allowed and that was about the worst flight I've ever been on. It didn't matter if the seat was in smoking or non-smoking.....five minutes in, the whole plane was a smoking section. AND I was seated between the not-so-small husband and what I swear was a Sumo wrestler.

Anyone fly Boston San Diego? That would be one of the longer ones.

Back in February-March, I traveled from Boston to Auckland, New Zealand and back. That was before the Boston-Honolulu flight started, so I couldn't consider it. I ended up going out via Houston and back via San Francisco, which obviously made the 15-hour part of the journey a non-stop flight over the Pacific. With this new option, I could have done the long part out of Boston. I'm not sure how that would be any better! I have to say, there is no way you'll enjoy a 15-hour flight in economy. You just have to endure it.
