I'm speaking about a flight from Chicago to UAE. Does it fly over the Arctic Circle or go around it?

    $\begingroup$ Are you asking about specific flights, or flights at high latitudes in general? If in general; why should there be anything special about the arctic circle? There's plenty of airports north of it. $\endgroup$

A direct flight from Chicago to the UAE will come close, but not enter the Arctic Circle.

Some flights will take a slightly more northerly route due to winds and weather conditions, but most will not enter the Arctic Circle.
