Suppose we have a Riemannian manifold $M^n$ with families $F_i$ $1\leq i \leq n$ of geodesics. Each family consists of geodesics which cover all manifold and don't intersect (probably we should also assume that they vary "smoothly" in some sense). Moreover, any geodesic from one family is perpendicular to any geodesic in the other family if the intersection of two occurs. Is it true that $M^n$ is flat? I would be interested to know any comments even for modified versions of the statement. Thank you.
Some comments: clearly in $R^n$ you can find such families. Looking at the sphere, I also failed to find such families (which doesn't prove that they don't exist). For me, the problem to prove the above statement lies in the fact that it is hard to start the calculation — it is hard to transfer geometric data into data about vector fields to show anything about curvature.
