No, 737 can't go that far. You're most likely on a 747, 767, or 777. The body of the plane really doesn't matter though...it's the seat configuration the airlines chooses and how many people they want to cram into the plane.

I would probably go the route you mentioned and upgrade to better seating. I'm sure it's well worth it on a long ride.

Abroad, I would like to go to Asia someday, not sure which part. Australia would be a nice to do, if I ever can. Moscow would be cool as well.

As I said in the other thread, in the US, I just like to drive, the destination is usually an afterthought.

I always pay an extra $40 for an economy plus seat...sometimes I play the hight card and go to the counter and ask for an exit row seat. Without economy plus I don't think I'd fly at all.

I actually prefer long flights, I hate having to drive an hour to the airport, get there an hour before the flight, get on the plane and then sit on the runway for another hour while some maintenance or whatever is being done last minute...all for an hour and a half flight.

If I'm going to have put all that effort into just getting on the plane I might as well have a nice, long flight I can enjoy. I don't want to do all that just to get right off the plane

Re: Places You Want to Visit

I hear ya, but I've got no problems with a quick flight. But yeah, it is crazy when the time you spending going to the airport and waiting around is equal to or longer than your actual air time.

Re: Places You Want to Visit

Short flights at small airports are great IMO. You don't have to show up early, you don't have to deal with crowds -- just stroll onto the plane, sit down and have a drink, then 30 mins later you're there.

Re: Places You Want to Visit

I've only been to a couple places in my young life so far, like NYC and Miami, but if I get the chance there are so many places I would definitely like to visit in my future.

For the US, it would be:

Vegas
L.A./San Fransisco
Mount Rushmore
New Orleans
Chicago
Canton, Ohio to see the PFHOF

Abroad, I'd enjoy going on a tour of Europe and seeing the historical spots as well as driving on the Autobahn in Germany lol. I'd also like to visit South Africa, when Elliot from DC101 went there last winter I was intrigued from all the places he and the class visited. I'll add Moscow to the list too, and Beijing/Hong Kong/Dubai/Mount Everest to the list too haha. I think I could just save time and say I'd enjoy traveling the world and experiencing everything there is out there.

No you are not alone . I guess if the middle east would ever become a stable area , maybe , just maybe I would go see the Great Pyramids of Egypt . I doubt I will ever leave the US .... so much to see and do here .
