What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections?

Hometown in the Midwest. Fly through Vienna or Munich to Chicago. About 20 hours but quite comfortable. - Aug 2, 2016
We divide home leave between Huntsville, Alabama and New Orleans. It takes between 19-21 hours door to door. - Aug 2, 2015
Florida. Depending on your travel route, the trip could take either one or two days. From Dulles, we took Austrian Air to Vienna, had a 5 hour layover in Vienna, and then a direct flight to Tirana. When returning to Florida, we prefer to use our overnight stop to make the trip easier. We take Austrian or Lufthansa to Vienna, Vienna to Frankfurt, and Frankfurt to Orlando. These are United code shares. Other options include Alitalia (Delta code share) through Rome, but I do not recommend flying Alitalia if you can avoid it. Friends and family have found flights on Turkish Airlines through Istanbul and Lufthansa through Munich. - Aug 12, 2014
Home base is Salt Lake City, Utah. It takes about 24 hours door to door. Most connections are through Vienna, Rome, or Munich -- then on to the U.S. - May 18, 2013
Our home base is DC, and it takes about 16 hours with one layover in Europe, usually Vienna, Munich, Frankfort, or Rome. - Dec 27, 2012
From Washington DC with connections the trip will take you about 14 hours through Munich or Vienna. There is more to do at the Munich airport if you have a choice between the two. - Oct 1, 2011
