Yeah well, that doesn't mean much, I always take the cheapest flight path which usually includes 2-3 layovers.
Of course. Me too. When I was in zhengzhou, Id take the train to Beijing and fly from there to Chicago, thence to Memphis.
Last year was Shenzhen to shanghai to Chicago to Memphis.
On the way back I got lucky. Memphis to Atlanta to Seattle to Shenzhen. I love it not having a connection after the long hop. Unfortunately that is not possible going to Memphis, as it obviously doesnt have a direct flight to or from Asia.
Next year we will take a direct flight Shenzhen or Hong Kong to LA. Wander around Cali and Nevada a bit, then fly from Vegas to Memphis.
My parents have Memphis to Atlanta to Seoul to Manila in a couple weeks for the wedding, then a two hour plus drive into the hinterland. Theyll be first class, but thats still gonna blow.
