A long and exhausting flight

I recently took a flight that lasted 14 hours! I can’t even believe I survived, but not because of how cheap or poorly piloted the plane was. There were no mishaps. The problem was the agony of sitting for over a dozen hours! Furthermore, I had a window seat, which afforded me the best view, of course, but it also meant disturbing the other two passengers every time I wanted to use the bathroom, stand up, or stretch. There’s one thing that I can at least say about this flight, however, and that is that it was a comfortable temperature from the moment we were seated to the moment we landed at our destination. I had always heard that airplanes were either too hot or too cold. However, the one thing that I could not complain about at all was how comfortable the temperature was! It is amazing to me that a jet plane can have such robust insulation and such an incredibly effective heating and air conditioning system! The screen in front of me told me it was anywhere from in the negative 70s outside to the negative 50s degrees Fahrenheit up at cruising altitude. What incredible climate control! Even the air quality within the cabin of the jet plane was fresh and breathable. You may not believe me, but it’s true! I hear these airliners use super-advanced HEPA air filters in the cabins, and I can believe it! While there was nothing I could do about sitting for so long, at least I was not freezing cold or sweating!
