My Longest Economy Class Flight in 5+ Years

Thanks to miles and points, most of the time I don’t have to fly Economy Class. The only exceptions are flights under 3 hours – if Economy is substantially cheaper or there is a great deal, I do not mind Economy Class and will be perfectly happy if the flight is under 3 hours.
