The plane will always land at the same spot, but when you are flying to and from work in the US, you may never ever land in the same city as your office colleagues.
In a new study, Google has discovered that planes have been landing on different routes since the dawn of time.
The researchers also discovered that the same route will always be used on a plane of different sizes, shapes and sizes.
The study is titled: ‘How many different routes are there on a Boeing 777?’ and will be published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The research is a collaboration between Google and the University of California, Berkeley, and will also appear in the next edition of Aviation Week and Space Technology.
Google’s plane was first spotted in 2007, when a man in his 20s was sitting next to a Boeing 737-800 flying from Seattle to Los Angeles.
Google planes are small planes, with a wingspan of just over 2,000 feet (800 metres), which can carry up to 30 people.
Google also has planes with wings that are as long as 2,500 feet (1,300 metres), but they have only been spotted in recent years.
They are often used as cargo planes for the likes of Amazon and eBay.
