We may return to comparable travel times when ground traffic to airport, security lines are considered.

pretty optimistic in some parts. If you wandered into the Canadian high-arctic or interior of Greenland in 1881 you probably weren't coming back.

Narrow band through Salt Lake City allowed for reaching the west coast before 20 days. From there you could depart and said that far west within 20 days.

yeah! Halifax NS and St. John's NL representing the dark green fringe in N.America... Canada taking unfair advantage again!

I'm not sure why it would take you more than 20 days to get off the boat if you sailed to Angola.

So around the world in 80 days was totally feasible.

At first glance it said, “time travel”. Now I’m interested, yet disappointed

About 7-8 days for the liner from Liverpool to New York, another week for the transcontinental railway to San Francisco.

i read this as time travel from London in 1881, like it was a map for time travellers

Tell that to the Donner Party, they must’ve missed that ship out of Salt Lake City. Srsly, I think 20 days for California is wildly optimistic.

What does the light yellow mean? I can't see how it would take them less time to get to the west coast of the US than Mexico's Yucatan peninsula.
