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

Washington, DC. No direct flights; best options IAD-LHR-HYD on British Airways or to go on any of the options through the Middle East. - Nov 18, 2017
It takes about 24 hours to travel from Hyderabad to Washington, D.C. or San Francisco. Connections through Doha, Dubai, London, New Delhi. - Sep 20, 2016
Florida, technically. I haven't done the connection, but I imagine it's near 20 hours. Best flight would probably be with Emirates or British Airways, but both have two connections, at the least. - Mar 16, 2015
It takes about 24 hours to go from Hyderabad to Washington, D.C., with a layover in Dubai. It's a long and exhausting trip. - Jan 18, 2015
U.S.A. It's a very long trip from the U.S. Especially if you are trying to import a pet. Depending on your Fly America availability, connections are through London, Frankfurt, or Dubai. - Nov 20, 2014
Virginia. Trip home is looong. About 20 hours in the air. Only good connections out of Hyderabad are to Doha, Dubai or London. Do whatever you can to avoid connections in India (Mumbai/Delhi). - Jul 18, 2014
Home base is on the U.S. East Coast, and it is at least 24 hour trip with layovers. Best route was Frankfurt to Hyderabad on Lufthansa, but that flight has been cancelled. It is convenient to fly through Dubai, Doha, and London. - Mar 2, 2012
Home base is the U.S. We can fly from HYD to Mumbai and get a direct flight from there to Newark, NJ. There are flights from HYD to Frankfurt, HYD to Dubai, and HYD to London that connect to the US. Travel to the US takes between 24 to 30 hours depending on where your final destination is. - Feb 27, 2012
USA, 20-30 hours depending on where in the US.The best flight back to the USWC is with Emirates via Dubai. There is no longer a flight though Amsterdam. - Jan 11, 2011
