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

U.S. is home. If you take the direct flight from Chicago or DC it takes 16 hours, longer if you go through Europe. - Sep 12, 2017
Direct flights from DC and several other U.S. Cities to both Abu Dhabi and Dubai. About a 14-hour flight. - Jun 8, 2015
East Coast of the U.S., now accessible by nonstops by both of the UAE's national carriers, as well as United to/from Dubai. - May 19, 2013
UK is my home base. Abu Dhabi is a seven hour direct flight from Heathrow. Ethiad, Qatar and British Airways all fly daily - Jul 20, 2012
New York, NY. Non-USG travelers can take advantage of a number of direct flights from the U.S. (fourteen hours nonstop from Dulles). Those subject to Fly American tend either to take United to Dubai (although Embassy Abu Dhabi will not assist travelers arriving in Dubai) or fly via Europe, mostly Frankfurt. - Aug 9, 2011
Washington, D.C.; 15 hours via Frankfurt. - Jul 17, 2011
New York - Nov 7, 2010
It's approximately 13 hours direct with Etihad to Toronto, but expensive in comparison to a Luftansa/Air Canada flight connecting in Frankfurt that is anywhere from 16 hrs +. - Jan 31, 2010
