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

US. Takes about a day with connections through Paris or Brussels. - Dec 13, 2017
West Coast. It's about 24 hours from first takeoff to last touchdown. Routes are through Paris and Brussels as city-pair fares. Brussels requires another connection on the East Coast or elsewhere in Europe (Frankfurt, London) to get to the West Coast. If you're paying your own way, Istanbul is an option with Turkish Airlines. - May 21, 2016
Home base is the Midwest. The trip takes about 24 hours with a connection in Europe (usually through Paris on Air France, but there are also flights through Brussels & Istanbul). - Aug 8, 2015
More or less DC... takes about 24 hours of travel through Paris on Air France. - Jun 9, 2015
West Coast, USA. It takes us about 30 yours, door to door. It's a bit shorter of a trip on the way here. We fly through Paris. - Jan 16, 2015
Eastern U.S. The trip is overnight to Europe (Paris, Brussels) then you arrive in Ouaga anywhere from the mid-afternoon to late evening depending upon the carrier. - Jul 30, 2013
West coast. With connections and layovers, 24 to 36 hours. After flying through Paris the first time, we chose to fly through Brussels. It's an easier airport to navigate and there's a hotel just across the street to get some rest in between flights. - Jul 8, 2013
Home is Brownsville, TX. It takes about 14 hours from Dulles, VA to Ouagadougou with a connection at Paris. - Apr 19, 2013
Washington, D.C. and Detroit, Michigan. For D.C., it takes roughly 17 hours when you include layovers. The flight takes off at night from Ouagadougou and lands at Paris-CDG in the morning, then you get a direct connection to the U.S. (normally Dulles), which takes more than 7 hours.. - Nov 18, 2012
Washington DC, about 20 hours of travel total -- which includes a 4-5 hour layover in Paris. Air France is the fastest trip, but Air Brussels via JFK in New York is another good route. - Aug 6, 2010
