Yeah I did 6 hours in a CA A320 and again on return as a redeye. It helped that the plane wasn't full I'd have to admit. The alternative would've been two narrowbody flights connecting at a somewhat undesirable airport, so I saw it as by far the better option.

It's a pity the flight isn't leaving SIN on a Sunday night, ready to start work Monday morning.

Then, need to wait a couple of years more for lie-flat seats up front.

Given a choice and alternative, I would not want to fly for 6 hours plus in a narow body 738/739, although it can fly for just under 8 hours.
