I'm Flying Over The North Pole!?

Fri Apr 14, 2000 8:50 pm

Hello-

I recently heard from my Chinese teacher that we will be flying over the north pole to get to China on the new direct Shanghai-Detroit route and maybe the Detroit-Beijing route. Is this true? Boy, I hope there is an ATC thing up there? And also, will the Shanghai flight be on a brand new aircraft since this is a new Northwest route?

Thanks
Jack
