I came upon this Yahoo! Answers question, which asks:

What 10 letter word means have lots of time?

The "best answer" (five stars!) was plentiful, a nine-letter word that doesn't really have anything to do with time.

So now I'm curious... anything?

How about "lotsoftime"? – iterums Sep 8 '13 at 15:44
perhaps a little tongue-in-cheek but: unemployed – Jim Sep 8 '13 at 17:15

Leisureful. It is likely to be absent from all but unabridged dictionaries because it is no longer used.

Had to change my original answer.
I got it totally wrong.


meaning: lasting lots of time (not quite what you were looking for but it's an improvement)

I think eternities, “Plural form of eternity”, (where eternity means an infinite time) might be the best choice for a noun, and commodious, “Spacious and convenient; roomy and comfortable”, might serve as an adjective. Also consider unabridged, “Not abridged, shortened, expurgated or condensed; complete”. At a stretch, unseasoned (without season) might work.

Perhaps @Jim 's answer was just as serious as jocular: I thought of unoccupied which is, in my opinion, quite similar to unemployed.
