What is the flight path like for a flight from southern South America to Europe? Do the aircraft fly over the Atlantic to Africa and up the coast to Europe? Northern South America to Europe? Chile to Europe? MEX to Europe? What about flights to and from South Africa to and form the US? What is the flight path like for those flights?

Flights that depart from Chile, Argentina, Uruguay,Paraguay and Brazil go through the Atlantic Brazilian Coast heading north, and once they are over Recife(right in the corner), they turn heading to Sal and then to the Canary Islands (if they are heading to the UK,France, Portugal or Spain) and they go through Algeria and Tunis if they are going to Italy or Switzerland.

Aeroflot's flight from Buenos Aires to Moscow goes over Western Africa as well. I know when they flew the IL-86s on that route they used to make a stop at Dakar, I'm not sure if this is still being done with the IL-96s.
