That's exactly right, IMHO. A few hours saved is certainly a bonus, but it's more that the ultra-long range flight gives you all of those 18 -20 hours in one contiguous block, to use as you will.The time savings are one factor, but IMHO it's the freedom of the use of the travel time that's the big selling factor, particularly for repeat customers in J/F. You aren't constrained by having to wake up, lug your bags through security and back onto the plane 2 hrs later to try and sleep again. You have 19-20 hrs to plan your journey to suit whatever sleep/work/time zone adjustment/entertainment arrangements you want.
