Jet plane routes from Tokyo-LA and back.

Why are the routes different?

Cracked by everyone! duriel , teju , Ginkgo100 , pratap , manubhardwaj (nice find :) ) , Dibyo , varuns88 , shivathilak , Sandesh , shyam , Vinay , yaksha , Ganesh Prasad , Tathagata Chatterjee and shashank.

Answer:

Jet Streams make Tokyo-LA faster, while taking the same route back will make the flight slower because of head winds.
