    I came to appreciate 4 hour gas tanks at a rather young age.

    Was there not a time when various persons(to include the medical sphere) were already worried about longhaul flights? The DVT (deep vein thromboses)? was a worry for the medical people?

    Ane what do the newer airliners do? The companies are competing to prove who can fly further and further non-stop! The days of the 1970's when I "spotted airlines like Capitol, TIA, Ona, Seaboard, National, Aeroflot, to mention but a few, at SNN for a tank-up! It brought some moneys into the cash registers in the duty-free shops:cool:!

    If it's United, they will just drag off enough passengers to seat a relief crew.

    And now they're being squashed into even smaller seats with less legroom. As Rich says "What could go wrong?"
