Yup, will be the FIFTH time I've made this flight. It's not too bad if you get decent seats. I prefer the aisle so I can stretch my legs.

This will also be the first time I've gone straight from the US to Okinawa. The previous four trips had an hour bus ride in Tokyo between Narita and Heneda airports. Then a 4ish hour flight from Tokyo to Naha on ANA (All Nippon Airlines) with what seemed like no air conditioning and a bunch of Okinawans who smell funny.

I think this one might be the best trip yet, even with the layovers. Especially considering it was 53 hours from take off to my wife's car last time.

I'd try harder to get a better travel agent.

Though I wasn't happy with my flight to Aberdeen or to Bergen

Houston to Amsterdam to Aberdeen, UK
Houston to Amsterdam to Bergen, Norway

each was about 12~13 hours.

Japan sounds like a nice place, no bad I don't speak the language.

Military arranges the flights. Best I can do is try to get a seating upgrade once I get to my gate.

When I travel home for leave I will be making my own arrangements and the trip shouldn't be as troubling.

Yeah, Okinawans are super nice and hard working. 90% of them would give a stranger the shirt off their backs.

They also live forever...their life expectancy is like 5+ years longer than the rest of the world's.
