      World is a globe and not flat as you see on the screen. If you check the route on a globe you will see that this is the shortest route.

        I'd view it on google earth where you can tilt and turn the planet
        - it may not be the actual shortest route but will be close too it - there are 'approved' flight corridors to follow, and the actual route chosen out of those possible will take into account not flying against the wind where there is route choice (fuel economy), and since this is a twin engined plane - there are limits about how far it is allowed to fly from a possible emergency landing airfield if one of the engines stops.
