Crunching the numbers

Dear Editor,

Re: India medical scheme 

I’ve done a basic research online about flights and distance and here is what I found:

• Distance from Samoa to India is 12,000 km

• Distance from Samoa to New Zealand is 3,275km

• Cost per person flying from Samoa to India is about $6000 Tala one-way.

• Flying from Samoa to New Zealand is around $800Tala one-way.

• Hours of flight plus stops from Samoa to India is two to three stops and 33hours flight.

• Flying from Samoa to New Zealand directly is 4hours. 

You go figure!
