The post Monsoon trekking season from the end of September to January is shorter and much more challenging temperature/colder. People say navigation is often easier with the sun behind you, which is another reference for east to west route, and also some of the high passes are a little easier to approach heading East-West especially high passes between Makalu- Everest range.
