The flight over is 14 hours. So they had the luxury compliments of Johnson-northwest Inc. to fly first class. Darren said, "that is the only way to fly on a long overseas flight."The first class cabin on this 777 was not full so they switched seats and sat in the middle seats next to each other so they could work. They arrived in Shanghai a little early around 2:00 pm on Thursday (2:00am est Wed.) Darren said that it took about 2 hrs to get from the airport to their hotel. He took some pictures from his room and the elevator.
