So after 17 hours and 53 minutes, the Qantas 787-9 is an 70 minutes from touchdown in Sydney.

I wonder how long it'll be before the Kangaroo route is done - LHR to Sydney or an even longer route LHR to NZ?
 
I’ve done an 18 hour AWACS sortie (including 8 hrs where I couldn’t leave my seat!), and 12 hours in a sleeping bag on the floor of a C-17.

Both were infinitely better than even 10hrs in your average economy cabin!

Enough said!

I recently did a 10.5 hour stint in economy in a 747 and I found it quite enjoyable... Considering there were only about 10 people in the rear with me and I had an entire row to stretch out on. :D

That does make an enormous difference.

But I’d still take the floor of a C-17!

Exactly. Short haul, couple of hours in economy is ok. Long haul, save and enjoy rather than endure.

The days when the military would pay for business class for journeys beyond a certain distance are sadly just a fond memory these days...unless you're in DE&S that is.

Of you're a short arrse like me, economy isn't too bad. I usually wedge myself into a corner and get my head down. A couple of drinks beforehand usually help.
