Traveler, James Lloyd, came across a surprising flight option when searching for tickets from Chrischurch, New Zealand, to London's Gatwick Airport on Skyscanner last week: A flight through Bangkok, Thailand, had a layover of more than 413,000 hours.

Lloyd posted the find on Facebook, sparking a chain of comments and likes in response.

One of the comments came from a Skyscanner representative, who (jokingly) offered suggestions for how Lloyd could spend his 47 years in the city.

"Missed Songkran, but you've got another 46 years to enjoy it," the representative, Jen, wrote.

Some of her other suggestions included checking out the Moon Bar, taking a cruise on the Chao Phraya river, scouring through the city’s floating markets, or becoming a tai chi expert at Lumphini Park.

There's a host of funny comments from Jen on the thread, which ultimately led to a happy ending for Lloyd.
