    The flight to Asia goes up north tordwas Alaska then comes down the east coast of China thus passing Shanghai and Beijing, and then to Hong Kong.Why do they do this? Because flat maps are two dimensional whereas the earth/globe is 3 dimensional with the circumference around the earth being shorter the further north you go. Because of this, if you look at a flat map that routinely distorts the true surface area it appears that a straight line following the latitude lines are the shortest distance, in actuality, it is shorter if you go north then come down.   삭제
