0:03 is an impossible shot not only do you have the Potomac river not in shot but also the tidal basin any of the monuments of anything noticeable.

The U.S. military is not allowed to overfly China. So service members deploying to the Middle East from bases in East Asia must go the LONG way around thru mainland U.S. to get to Turkey or Qatar or Afghanistan. I understand back in the day they used to use Diego Garcia in the middle of the Indian Ocean to get around this, but that's no longer an option.

I remember in the early 1970s, we would actually stop in the Azores for refueling. And just recently I flew on a domestic flight in Cambodia that was Vietnam Airlines.

I'm wondering: do flights ever take a less fuel-efficiant and more climate-unfriendly route due to the necessity of avoiding expensive airspace?

1) Turkish Airlines' hub is located in Istanbul Airport, which is actually in European Continent. Duh 🤦🏻‍♂️ 2)Dear Western country born and raised, mediocre western type media bombed brain bearer unfortunates: Stop mistaking us Turks with arabs in any kind of opportunity to talk about middle East. Neither Turks are arabs the same nor we are decendents of each other, we just share the same religion. Its like saying French and Spanish are the same cuz they are living close and having the same religion. 3) Yes i am totally sick about being mistaken as Arab

Might is right. Once ICAO came into being only Boeing was manufacturing safe, reliable and large aeroplanes. Chicago convention was all about opening business and buyers for Boeing, serving American interest.

Please, translate your miles into kilometers, too. The US Americans and the Little Englanders in England are the only people on Earth talking in miles. You are limiting your communication reach when only talking in miles.

The MozartThug (1 month ago)
Why cant all countrys agree that if there is a shorter path but will cost more in over flight fees, then they have to bring the cost down to the cheapest outcome....... This would stop excess fuel being used....... Probably millions of gallons per year......
The MozartThug (1 month ago)
@Tiny Cuber but surly, if they didnt have to pay others for over flight fees, then they would save there...... Im sure it wouldnt work out fair though, just seems silly they are happy to polute the planet more to save money
Tiny Cuber (1 month ago)
And when people want money, the wrong usually happens. When the price goes up, those who really need the product, mostly th exports, are the ones who can’t afford it
