This plane was designed to test the endurance of passengers to numerous bad movies and crying babies while in cramped seating for nearly a complete day and night.

"With the ability to carry out non-stop 20-hour flights"? They either increase seat/leg room significantly or the flight crew must include 2-3 physicians to treat many passengers suffering from DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)on such flights.

How much further until you can go halfway around the world. No need to go any further than that.

20 hours on a plane, not unless it had a pool. I can't stand 2 hours.

But is the 20 hours with a full passenger load? Maybe on the long flights it wouldn't be as crowded. I have heard that the Quantas flights from DFW to SYD are not full because the aircraft used cannot carry a full passenger load that far.
