London to Sydney in a few hours sounds great but I flew back from Singapore to London stretched out in the middle seats of a 747, armrests removed, sort of semi asleep, as you do on night long-hauls, thinking here I am miles above who knows where on earth, 500 mph, heading home, the rhythmic hum and throb of the plane sending me off to sleep. A sort of magic really.
 
Not that seasoned long-haulers would agree.
Must Fly!
