How fast can airplanes go?
On a charter airline flight, what is the average speed that planes travel at? I ask this question because my friend has a flight from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to Toronto, Ontario and has an estimated time of 1/2 hr. While a flight from Toronto to Ottawa is around 25 minutes. These two trips have a very different length in distance yet generally the same travel time. Do planes travel slower when the distancene is less?
