I love them too!

Aren't all flights from the USA to Europe effectively red-eyes?

I got travel advice that told me to avoid red eye flights into Europe so that you weren't sleep deprived when you arrived and made bad choices (I failed on that count). Umm okay, I'll just ignore the eight hour time difference then so long as my flights are during the day.

My definition of a red-eye is an eastbound overnight flight that is too short to get any meaningful sleep on. West coast to east coast of North America (or Perth or Darwin to eastern Australia) definitely qualifies, US to Europe is borderline, Dubai to Australia definitely not (though that one carries different tiredness issues).
