Greetings! We will be traveling to Barcelona at the end of March 2020. We will spend six nights with a corporate travel trip then look forward to traveling to Madrid and/or Seville and taking day trips from there for four-five more nights. Because Phoenix, our home town, isn’t a major hub for many international flights, we usually connect on the East coast. So I’m looking for insights on a couple things related to flights for those of you who have perhaps flown from Phoenix or other similar markets.
Have you flown to London and then to Barcelona instead of making a stop on the East Coast and is that better or easier Jetlag wise? I’m also thinking we will fly home from Seville unless someone has another tip for the best place near there to return from, i. e., going back to Madrid and flying from there. We flew home from Rome earlier this year and flew through Dulles with a 4.5 hour layover and then another five hour flight to Phoenix. It was not a pretty return itinerary. Rough! So I would greatly appreciate any advice about how to look at easiest travel itineraries both from and returning to Phoenix.
Many thanks in advance for your thoughts!
