If you live abroad you get to pay both US taxes and taxes where you live. Uncle Sam allows at least some credit depending on the details. Cologne base is limited to a few years, then you have to rotate out for a period of time.

That largely comes down to the requirements of the "host" country and (more specifically) what type of status you maintain there. On the plus side at least you're not in 'murica so it can be a price worth paying in many situations.

I flew with one guy on the 777 in LAX who commuted in from the southwest area of France. He was super senior and ran in to many issues flying a full schedule and making the commute work.

Fedex guy here. It's not Europe but I commute from Central America and it is a non issue. I'm about 50% in my seat and usually fly out of Miami, Paris, or Newark. Highly recommend Fedex for commuting options but in your case would just go to Cologne base. Good luck.

Good to know, thank you! When did you fly Herks?
