I would have to disagree.

TLV-IST-FRA-ORD-MSP-RST is BRUTAL. That is nothing

I'm sure it was. Though having 4 companions (possibly kids) with the above itinerary is pretty crazy.

+1

Traveling on some circuitous itinerary as a 20-something-year-old cannot compare to traveling even half the distance with 4 people (three of which are children) in tow.

Apples and hand grenades.

I can extrapolate from having to take my nephews/nieces on a single sub-three hour flight.

Thanks guys.
In order to not clog up this thread, I'm going to address the responses and ask some questions in this thread.

http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=45115.0

Any help would be much appreciated.

While my flights aren't as sexy as AJK's, I can promise that my shower after 30 hours of traveling in Y with kids will be more pleasurable (and needed) than his shower in EK F.  :)

SO in LAX, or no availability direct to JFK?

If he wanted the A380, as I did, he couldn't do ICN-JFK.

Yeah there were at least 4 award bookings on my flight (including a guy who worked for Boeing who was dispatched to DXB to deliver a custom-order 787). OZ has gotten very generous on the route; I'm not sure it's performing very well.

It would be ironic if it was for the banker you met on EK F. :D
