Circles in the Sky

Posted by cortelyounext on Sat Aug 24 10:53:43 2019

I was sitting in my jumpseat facing aft waiting to begin my Business Class service, the so called Elegance in the Air. I got tired of staring directly into the bulkhead wall so I got to thinking about why the airplane never flies the shortest distance to the destination but instead goes in a curved line. You can clearly see it on the map in the back of the magazine. Even I knew in elementary school that a straight line is the shortest distance.between two points... and donít tell me it is because of the wind because it happens every flight. The pilots talk over my head and are of no help.
