How long of an airline flight is too long for you?

How much sitting can you do on a flight? Would you not fly to a certain place if you knew it took a certain amount of hours? It takes 13-14 hours to fly from Philly to Hawaii and I think that is way too long but it was worth the trip. It is hard to sit on a plane for that long without being able to move around much.

The longest I've flown is from London to Las Vegas non stop around 12 hours. Aiming to fly across to Australia next year which will mean 20 hours on a plane....yikes. But I think the length you can comfortably fly for really depends on the person.

I actually enjoy flying and never considered any length of journey to be too long. I suppose that there has to be a limit because you cannot fly for days without it becoming restrictive to some degree, but I would say that all current flights are within a reasonable level. My longest flight was a domestic flight in Russia some years ago. I flew from Moscow to Bratsk in Central Siberia (3500 miles) and then to Irkutsk and back to Moscow a couple of days later.

8 hours is just about my upper limit. I'm sure I could go longer if I had to or it was a place I really wanted to visit, but it would definitely be painful. The longest flight I have taken up until now was from the East Coast of the US to Paris, France. That was 8 1/2 hours.
