What's the weirdest scheduled flight path people have flown on?
Mine - any destination from Europe direct to Taipei.
Across Europe (depending on starting point) - come out of Europe from Romania - across the Black Sea - across Georgia and Azerbaijan - come out from above Baku - across the Caspian Sea - across Turkmenistan - across Afghanistan over Kabul - across Pakistan over Islamabad - into India and make some weird turn over New Delhi - across India - across Bangladesh over Dhaka - across that tiny bit of India - across north of Burma - into China heading north west - make a sharp turn over Kunming towards Hong Kong - across south of China - fly above HKSAR - across South China Sea towards KHH heading east - turn north west and fly next to Magong/Penghu Islands - arrive in Taipei.
Time - about 13.30 hours (about an extra 2 hours flight compared to not going through all that)
When going towards Europe: fly north east towards Japan - hit Osaka and turn north - hit Russia and then fly the normal curve as per most long-haul flights towards Europe. (except Vienna and other routes that stop at BKK)
