Re: Most geographically nonsensical routing?

I personally haven't flown any routes that could truly be considered "geographically nonsensical" (off the top of my head, the only ones that could be argued are BUF-PHL/CLT-SFO). I know my dad has flown BUF-PHL/CLT-DTW a couple times, as US/AA was cheaper than DL nonstop.
