Just a quick question regarding different types of routes, the below two routes as you can see are of similar distances but the route to EYKA has a lot more points and airways to follow, is this due to lack of infrastructure in Eastern Europe and/or more strict rules regarding air traffic, is this common in other parts of the World?

EGSS SID CPT UN859 BALAN UL152 MAKOX UN860 SAURA STAR LEVC 853NM

EGSS SID CLN UL620 TULIP UY12 SPY UN873 JUIST UP729 DOSUR P729
TALSA P730 CDA L983 ROE M865 LATMI B65 TIGNU L749 AKUMA STAR EYKA 944NM

Almost 3/4 of the waypoints on the Kaunas flightplan exists within Western European airspace, so no, it's not an Eastern European issue.

In my experience, the busier the airspace is, the more waypoints there are. The route between London TMA and Copenhagen (CDA, or Codan) is one of the most congested corridors in the world, with many airways crisscrossing it. So it is not surprising that there are so many waypoints in the plan.

It is just partially that - it depends on how often you change airways. If you caught a good direction, you could go thousands of miles on one airway.
