Come on guys 15/16 hours is already par for the course so why such a big fuss about an extra 3 hours. There will always be Doubting Thomases.

going by boat would be preferable to nearly 20 hours of flight for me- i would catch up on sleep, create new daily rituals, remember what slow down felt like, then get back into the rat race. And the food would be better tot.

I think this is an all Business configuration so the torture will be less that normal. Still 19 hours though.
