I didn't know Novair flew their A321s ARN-LPA-REC!

That has to be the longest A321 flight in the world!

MYT Scandinavia and Novair fly their 199-211-seat A321s between Scandinavia and the Canary islands nonstop many times every week, with block times at 5,5-6 hours. I think that's impressive  thumbsup 


Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

I could imagine the BMED's LHR-THR route is amongst the longest ones with a westbound flying time of 6H30 mins. flight is operated with A320 and A321's.

Those are longer. Air Ivoire also has a long flight between ABJ and MRS.

MRS (43°26'12"N 05°12'54"E) ABJ (05°15'41"N 03°55'35"W) 194° (S) 2335 nm
ARN (59°39'07"N 17°55'07"E) LPA (27°55'55"N 15°23'12"W) 230° (SW) 2342 nm
LPA (27°55'55"N 15°23'12"W) REC (08°07'36"S 34°55'23"W) 210° (SW) 2435 nm

LPA-REC seems to be the longest route served nonstop.

BMED only fly the 321 to THR, never the 320.

The longest single sector flights seem to be

LPA-REC 2435nm
LHR-THR 2389nm
ARN-LPA 2342nm

The longest multi-sector

ARN-LPA-REC 4777nm
LHR-TBS-FRU 3244nm
LHR-HBE-ADD 3224nm

It is clear to see that Novair really stretch their 321s

Any more additions?

Mike

Didn't I read about a new service from somewhere in Pakistan (Islamabad perhaps...) to MAN, with a stop at Istanbul?

Istanbul to Manchester, is nothing special, but what about Islamabad to Istanbul?

Yep, MAN-ESB-ISB is another good one to add to the list, had forgotten all about that one!

MAN-ESB 1634nm
ESB-ISB 1953nm

MAN-ESB-ISB 3587nm

According to the Air Ivoire website, some of their ABJ-ORY and vice versa, operate nonstop which is 2621nm.

Another long multi sector is BMED's weekly LHR-BEY-ADD

LHR-BEY 1883nm
BEY-ADD 1497nm

LHR-BEY-ADD 3380nm

Nope, no extra fuel tank for BMED's 321s.

I believe BMED's aircraft have an extra fuel tank in the cargo compartment to increase range.

AC's YYT-LHR route is the only Canada-UK A319 route and it's not that far, 2012 naut. mi., scheduled time 5 hrs eastbound, 5:35 westbound. AC has quite a few longer nonstop sectors using the A319, both domestic and international.

BMED do have an ACT in the A321's, which I believe stands for Additional Centre Tank. Guess BMI will be keeping these ones for the longer range BMED routes. BMED have on occasions run a full A320 non stop both ways between LHR-THR when one of the A321's has had a tech problem. This can onlt be done westbound if the winds / Temp are favourable. If they not even the A321's cannot make it non stop sometimes.
I believe a BMED A320 also made it from Bishkek to Stansted non stop many years ago as well.

...should be starting soon! I think ED will run it with the A321 until they get some A330's or A340's ..but I'm not 100% certain as they haven't placed a definitive order yet....

Yes, but the flight was operated by BMED (a BA franchise partner who at the time had been absorbed into the BD group). The aircraft in question was G-MEDL.  Smile

the A320 has much better range than a 321, I know of a 320 that operated LGW-BJL before now, the 321's sometimes struggle to get back from the Canaries to the UK with a bit of wind on the hooter

How is it to travel long-haul (or almost long-haul) in those 320/321?

No PTVs?
No extra legroom?
No proper long haul business class?

Are they like the Privatair or AF Dedicate services where the planes are re-fitted for long-haul or does it just plain suck?


25 HUYfan : BMED operates 8 A321/A320 of which, 3 have PTVs in World Traveller, one with on demand. So if you're lucky, you do get good entertainment on some flig
26 DiscoverCSG : This was a regularly scheduled flights by BMED (branded as BA).
27 2travel2know : I don't know if JM ever took its A321 MBJ-LAX, +2353nm.. LAX is(was) served from MBJ so KIN-LAX (+2426nm) might have never happened...
28 Post contains links and images Vadheim : There are many long A321 routes from Scandinavia. From Norway we frequently have A321 charters from/to; Oslo - Malmö - Dubai - Goa (Novair) 11h40min
29 Clydenairways : Spanair have some really long A321 flights from the Canaries to Finland, Baltic states etc

31 Raffik : I flew Toronto-Heathrow on an AC 767 with no PTV or extra legroom and it was fine! The Business class seats didn't look special either!
32 A342 : This must be the longest leg on the A321. 4977km / 2687nm.
