comment What is the LONGEST passenger flight (with a flight number) in the world?
"Longest" flights are always going to include crossing the equator. Once you have to do that, you can't take advantage of a near-polar route.

comment Why does the TSA allow two 3-ounce containers but not one 6-ounce container?
When I later looked at the TSA site that @nate-eldridge linked to, TSA said that 3.4 oz / 100 ml is adequate for a short trip. So knowing people really complain if they can't take anything, this is the smallest reasonable amount.

Doesn't RyanAir (and EasyJet) have restrictive baggage policies? If you need some camping gear, that may bump the costs a bit.
