But isn't going to New Orleans from San Antonio northeast?

• Geography -

Going from San Antonio to New Orleans is directly east.

San Antonio is located at 29 degrees, 25 degrees north. New Orleans is at 29 degrees, 57 minutes north. I don't consider the difference of 27 minutes significant.

• Geography -

27 minutes is less than half a degree. In this situation, it is not significant.
