    ages

    Is this understanding correct?
    1. It's ages [an age] since I saw you last. - BrE
    2. It's a long time since I saw you last. - AmE & BrE
    Thank you.

    I think in both sentences I would go with Present Perfect:
    It's been ages since... ( it's just a cliche to say "a very long time")
    It's been a long time since...
