Circular also can be right option, because in Thesaurus, 'circular' is a Synonym of 'circuitous'.

Longest means the longest route of that destination.

So, the answer may be longest because the longest route has a highest fare.

Dhana said:   7 years ago
Why not longest?

Sourabh said:   7 years ago
Yes, longest route is also correct.

Zunaid said:   6 years ago
No, longest could be used because there is 'a' before blank 'the longest' is used together.
