Flying to Asia sucks. Not only do sit on a plane forever, but I also think the jet lag is worse flying west vs east. When I received my orders to go to Korea I was stationed at Ft.Rucker in Ala.. I flew from there to Atlanta, from Atlanta to Seattle, Seattle to Anchorage, Anchorage to Tokyo and then Tokyo to Seoul. I thought I was traveling to the end of the earth!
Gotta say, I loved Asia. The ancient culture, their food and women.
