Every time I get asked by my friends whenever I take a 13 hours non-stop flight from JFK to Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Doha, “What do I do in those 13 hours non stop flights?”

My reply: “Honestly, it isn’t that bad, watch some movies, meals are served and then take a nap. Later, as I open my eyes, I am already in Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Doha. Therefore, it isn’t that bad when compared to world’s longest top 10 flights.”
