Today - IWA (Phoenix/Mesa)--PHX - Distance = 22 miles AMT 7012 dep 1445 - arr 1450 B752

Is the flight listed above a regularly scheduled flight?

NW operates NWA800 from OGG to HNL (that continues to ANC). Flight time is normally 20~25 mins.

No, not regularly scheduled, but still impressive at 5 minutes take-off to touch-down!

I flew once on an AA 757 SJC-SFO, (then on to BOS). Flying time 7 min. Then once in SFO, 45 min waiting for an open gate.  Sad

As recently as last year, US was running a 757 once a day between BWI-PHL (70-90 miles). I think now the biggest they operate is a 734.

Delta used to operate a 757 between CMH and CVG, about an hour and a half drive. Now it is a mix of regional aircraft B737s and MD88s.

Keeping the TZ theme, MDW-ORD on a ferry flight. We covered another airlines trip to MBJ when they damaged their nose gear. I met the plane at ORD and didn't get to ride, but ranks right on up, erg, down there.

As much charter, positioning, & ferrying that TZ does, they probably have some of the shortest and longest 757-200/-300 flights around. Just by using my own deductive/educated reasoning. I am sure there are some other airlines that rank the same, but still, TZ is great!

While I know it's not the shortest, AA has a daily 757 flight from TUL-DFW. That's probably about a 30 min flight depending on which runways at both airports are used and local area traffic.

From what's been posted above this is not the shortest flight, but the 35 minute MVD-AEP sometimes used by Pluna's 757 is for sure not the longest  Wink

ps: I'm impressed by the 5-minute flight!

United used to run one MRY - SFO; OAG shows it 87 miles but it can't be that far. I flew on it once...only about 10 people on the plane. Now it's all EMB-120's.

I believe back in the day DL and Eastern had quick hops on 757s between FLL and MIA. Usually the beginning or ending
segments from flights that originated in BOS, JFK and BWI.

Don't they also run PBI-FLL? I see one taking off almost every morning when I go to work. Some days I think its just fuel and crew the way it rockets up.

Let's talk about SCHEDULED pax flights. DL used to have a flight that went DFW-FLL-PBI. I took it. The FLL-PBI tag was way, way fun. The plane was virtually empty of pax, and the leg a short one, so performance was absolutely incredible.

BA used ti use the 752 on the MAN-LHR route with a flying time of 25 minutes on the BA Shuttle services and they were always full, sadly this season all 752 were replaced with A321's on domestic services

I know its not a 752 but ET fly a 763 from FIH to BZV as part of the ADD-FIH-BZV-ADD Service and that has a flying time of approx 5-7mins with a distance of 14miles and its a regular scheduled passenger service!! LOL!!
