Looks like I might be doing some traveling from the US to the UK soon (business). I have never flown internationally and am a bit apprehensive about these long flights. Although visiting Europe sounds very exciting, I really dislike long flights. I've done Chicago to LA a few times (4 hours) and it really drags on after about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. I wouldn't say I'm claustrophobic, but flying to Europe is an awfully long time to be stuck in an airplane. My father said that flying internationally is not the same as taking Southwest Airlines across the country where you're packed in and forced to entertain yourself. He said there's tons of movies and things to occupy the time, though I am not one to sleep on airplanes. Those of you who fly internationally: how do you cope with long flights? What's the experience like compared to transcontinental stuff?
