Well, what the **** are they supposed to do for 8 hours 10 km up in the air? Watch out for pedestrians? Pretty sure they just have to keep going in a straight line, which the autopilot can probably handle.

Follow handoffs from controller to controller, make sure the aircraft systems are functioning correctly, be aware of other traffic around them (there's more than you'd expect), avoid SIGMETS and all other weather hazards, contact base operations in case of procedural changes, tell the autopilot to do what it's supposed to do, plan their descent and approach accordingly, make sure their fuel consumption rate (which can change drastically) is adequate, etc.
Generally, make sure everyone's life on board is safe and make sure everyone is comfortable being in a tin can for over 10 hours.
