Why is it quicker to travel by plane from London to Alaska via the North Pole across Canada?

this is under geography.

The shortest distance between two places on Earth along the surface is the great circle arc between these places. a great circle is a circle whose radius is the radius of the Earth, ie a circle whose center is located in the center of the earth. The Great Circle between London and Alaska is at the North Pole. You can see for yourself. Get a world globe and a piece of rope. Find the shortest route between two places. between Alaska and London will go onto the pole.
