The shortest route flies to 24 airports and involves over 9,000 miles of flying at a cost of almost $3,100 in airfare! The cheapest route, somewhat oddly, covers over 14,000 miles to reach those same 24 airports but actually costs 20% less, clocking in at only $2,400 in airfare. Basically fans get to save money and rack up frequent flier miles at the same time!
