Conclusion

So, to fly around the southern hemisphere on a “flat earth” would take more than 68 hours of actual flying time, covering more than 32 THOUSAND miles! And that DOES NOT include the layover and stopover times!

To circumnavigate the southern hemisphere in the real world would take “only” 39 hours actual flying time and only 19 thousand miles.

Hmmm.

I think I’d rather fly around the real world!
