Washington D.C. The direct United flight from Dulles to Moscow was discontinued last summer, which was a disapointment. Now you must connect through Frankfurt, Vienna or Geneva. The entire trip takes around 11 or 12 hours including layovers. However, there are rumors that United will start a direct flight again to/from Moscow, but maybe from Newark. This will certainly make for easier trips to the U.S. - Jul 18, 2013

Washington DC. Direct flights are possible on flights for about 9 hours. More often I connect through a Western European hub, which ads about 2 hours to the total travel time. Getting to/from the Moscow airports can take 2 hours+ in traffic, so I strongly recommend the express trains. - Feb 13, 2010
