To me it sounds wasteful to fly 7.5 years to a planet and then make only 2 flybys on the primary target. Or would that be the length of the primary mission only, with potentially many more flybys if the spacecraft lasts?
Ganymede is the primary target, which JUICE will orbit. Each Europa flyby was added later when it was found to not be too dangerous.
