Washington DC. A short flight Oman-UAE or Oman-Qatar and then a straight shot to DC. The short flight is about an hour and then the long one is between 14-16 hours, depending on your connection. Total travel time is about 22 hours. - Aug 28, 2017
From the U.S. to Oman the trip is a minimum of 25 hours with any combo of available connections through Dubai, London, Frankfurt, or Amsterdam. Most trips to or from the U.S. have at least two connections. - Oct 25, 2014
Muscat is 20 hours from Washington, DC including connections through Germany. - Jun 7, 2012
East coast. Fly Muscat to Dubai, or Doha, then direct to the States. You could stop in Europe, but I'd rather just get it over with. From the Gulf to the East Coast is about 14 hours. - May 3, 2012
15hrs. From DC to Dubai with a short lay over. Depends on your airline. European routes can total up to 24 hrs. - Aug 25, 2011
Washington DC about 18 hrs - Feb 20, 2011
Emirates airlines flies directly from houston, about a 19-20 hour flight. - Apr 1, 2010
DC to Muscat is loooong, even with the direct flights in economy. Best to stop off for a day or two in the EUR. - Feb 12, 2010
From the East Coast, about 6 - 7 hours to Europe (London, Frankfurt, Zurich, Amsterdam), another 6 - 7 hours to Muscat with a stop in a Gulf country. - Jan 21, 2010
