Northern Hemisphere Itinerary

© 2020 Jerry D. Patillo

If you would like to circumnavigate the northern hemisphere, maybe you could visit

  • New York City, USA
  • Moscow, Russia
  • Tokyo, Japan
  • and back to New York City.

Your nonstop flight itinerary would look something like this:

You could do the above nonstop trips, but they would be really long hauls.

  • JFK – SVO 9 hours 10 minutes
  • SVO – NRT 9 hours 35 minutes
  • NRT – JFK 12 hours 55 minutes

Maybe the following itinerary would be a little easier:

  • JFK-LHR-SVO
  • SVO-OVB-NRT
  • NRT-ANC-JFK

If Flat Earthers or Real Worlders ever wanted to circumnavigate the northern hemisphere, it would be fairly easy, but expensive, for both to do so. They could both fly nonstop flights (summer 2020) from

  • JFK (New York [John F Kennedy Intl], NY, USA) to
  • SVO (Moscow [Sheremetyevo Intl], MOS, Russia)
  • NRT (Tokyo (Narita) [New Tokyo Intl], 12, Japan)
  • and back to JFK

This would take about 33 hours actual flying time (NOT including the layovers!) and about 16,000 miles. [https://flightsfrom.com]
