"Scenic flights" sounds romatic. But "flights to nowhere" sounds sarcastic.

Does "flights to nowhere" sound sarcastic in your native English speakers' ears?

The New York Times tweeted 5h ago:

People who miss flying are rushing to buy tickets for flights that land in the same place they depart from. Some airlines call these “scenic flights” — others are more direct, calling them “flights to nowhere.”
