Long flights are never fun. Sitting in a chair hurtling through the sky for extended periods of time is always unnerving, no matter how many sleeping pills you take. What makes long flights even worse is when you have to do a layover in other countries.
The good news is that those of you who wish to travel to America will no longer have to make a stopover. Thai airways is going to reintroduce direct flights to the states so you won’t have to make a pit stop in Dubai, Seoul, Delhi, Tokyo or wherever else planes have been stopping in recent years.
There are a few hurdles to get over first but once the flights are given the go ahead, planes will fly directly to the west coast. Seattle and San Francisco will be the first direct flight destinations but others will surely follow. The flights will still be long but at least you won’t have to stop in limbo on the way.
