Lewis’ Maths Flight Challenge

Looking at Lewis the Lion’s Incredible Itinerary can you work out the following mathematical questions? (Top tip: being able to tell the time will help!).

From the time of his departure to his arrival, can you work out how long each of Lewis’ flights are going to take?
Which is the longest flight?

Why does it take as much time? Do you notice anything strange about the dates? Why do you think this happens? Can you help Lewis to understand?
