Fly to the west coast then onto China. Its going to be a long flight no matter what direction you go, but going west is shorter.
You can fly United to Chicago and then United non-stop to Beijing. The plane may fly over the north pole so you are flying either west or north.
You ask the pilot to fly in straight line, but not in winding line, as straight line is the shortest between two points. ....LOL.....
