Which generally take longer, flights from Europe to America or America to Europe and why?

Flights coming from the East (could be Europe or from the East Coast of the USA flying to the West Coast), take longer because they are traveling through (against) the Jet Stream. Likewise flights traveling West to East have a tailwind behind them, that helps the planes arrive a little faster.
