Dread long flights USA to/from BKK

Jump to last reply

Have used many departure points from USA to Bangkok over the past few years; but, always dread any flight over 11 hours, followed by another flight of 7 hours or so.
Am continuing to seek better alternatives and invite suggestions.
Flights have originated from either OKC or TUL; via DFW, DTW, ORD, MPS, SFO and LAX; with connections via NRT, TPE and Shanghai.
So far, the least painful I've found has been OKC - SFO - NRT - BKK going; and returning BKK - NRT - LAX - OKC. That keeps max time flights down around 10 - 11 hours, but would like to do better, plus keeping costs as low as possible; comfort; safety; etc.
Ideally, would like to find a flight schedule of the 10 - 11 hours flight followed by perhaps a 4 - 5 hour flight going and the reversed upon return; or something close.
Keep thinking it would be nice to fly California - HNL; spend a night in HNL; then continue on via MNL or ???
Any suggestions or recommended search engines?

Thank you,
BillH52
