India is a long way from home

May 30, 2011

As if you didn’t already know that.  However, I bet you don’t know just how far, in terms of hours:

Spartanburg to Atlanta ~ 3hrs

Wait time until flight      ~ 2hrs

Atlanta to Frankfurt       ~9hrs

Layover                             ~4hrs 20minutes

Frankfurt to Mumbai   ~9hrs

Layover                             ~8hrs 20minutes

Mumbai to Mangalore ~1hr 20minutes

Mangalore to Manipal ~2hrs

Total trip time                ~39hrs

In terms of distance, it is about 9000 miles, in theoretical air miles (

All of my flights were punctual, I got fed twice on every plane except the Mumbai to Mangalore (only once), and landed safe, but tired.
