Top 10 Longest Flights in the World

So, What’s the longest flight YOU have ever been on?
Have you ever wondered how far you have traveled in one full swoop? Spare a thought and credit yourselves a chance. Though there are plenty of travelers I who just hate sitting on a plane being told when can they get up, when can’t they; what can they bring on board, what can’t they on board on long-haul flights.  There are many who harbor very little love for long-haul flights.
Well I wont be hardpressed to find myself on this strange bucket list to be on board in the longest of non-stop flights in the world, without even touching down for a layover. I often wonder what its like to absorb the surreal experience of taking the longest non-stop flight in the world with the sweetest of window seat and my laptop, documenting the experience- the stunning landscapes, mesmerizing views, breaking a friendly discussion with an awesome seatmate, taking selfies, eating, drinking, sleeping and much more..
