Airline flight path

Mrs. Plant flew to Long Island today. Watching on a website, I noticed that Southwest flew from Baltimore West out to sea, north east and then north to Long Island. Why didn’t they fly in a straight line East North East from Baltimore to Mac Arthur?

WAG-noise abatement?

Maybe they were avoiding the traffic over Washington and New York.

East, dammit. :rolleyes:
East from Baltimore, over Delaware, North East grazing New Jersey and then East over the sea for a good while, then North for Long Island

This is a duplicate thread. I’ll close it.
