And AFAIK not all kilometers of cables lie on the ocean floor; if the
ocean has high depth on a given part of the cable route, the cable
simply floats on the water on that run. It's just a matter of having
enough pressure to lift it up.

and for the difficult parts, they pump helium in and get it above flight paths.
