Winner - you only get non-stops if you live in a major gateway for Europe.

Phoenix only has two non-stops to the continent per week afaik, so I am stuck having to change planes somewhere in the States and often again in Europe. A direct flight to my location in Europe would be eleven hours, you add a few hours for each stopover (at minimum, sometimes they are 6-7 hours) and it really adds up.

Especially coming home against the jet stream. That is the reality - 20-24 hours of travel is not uncommon at all.
