If the earth were flat, all long distance flights would work on a flat map. Long distance flights do not work on a flat map, therefore the earth isn’t flat.
Where’s Wally’s analysis of Greater Sapien’s flight from Sydney to Johannesburg:
These regular flights in the southern hemisphere are impossible on a flat earth:
- QF63/QF64 Sydney – Johannesburg
- SA222/SA223 Johannesburg – São Paulo
- QF27/QF28 Sydney – Santiago
- LA800/LA801 Auckland – Santiago
- SA280/SA281 Perth – Johannesburg
- ANZ30/ANZ31 Auckland – Buenos Aires
Flat earthers may try to deflect and show non-direct flights which usually involve transferring to another plane. This is just deception. If the earth is flat these flights would follow a different route and be two to three times as long. If they follow the same route but just on flat earth, the distances would be 3-6 times as long.
Flattys, don’t like it? Book the flight, take your GPS recorder, and disprove it. Until then, the flat earth idea is low-quality fan-fiction.

Here’s an example of a real flight that was flown:
Here’s a nice graphical illustration of how flights on flat earth cannot work:
