    Many of the potential health issues mentioned there are not a lot different if you take 1 long flight or 2 shorter flights that end up adding up to more air time plus wait time in your connection stop.

    Also, some of the mitigation measures mentioned there have their own risks. Many of the recommendations will have you being NOT seated and belted more often and for longer periods of times. Drinking a lot of water will have you visiting the restroom more times, the same for taking a walk every 2 hours (you would take nine walk breaks in a 20 hours flight).
