I was idly musing on how a jet would fly (positioning) from LGA to JFK - flight path and speed. Then I remembered my ultra short hops - MBJ to KIN (83 mi), AUA-CUR (74mi) on AA and NLM. This led me to wondering: what is the shortest scheduled commercial jet flight today?
p.s. - any info on LGA-JFK routing also appreciated!

Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 18): IIRC somebody (EA?) flew FLL-MIA with Tristars back in the stone age. That's what I read on here, anyway.
Oh yeah, lots of those, especially pre-deregulation. I have a 1970 OAG that lists no less than 8 nonstops by National, all 727, between Newport News and Norfolk - 23 miles. Then again fuel was how much back then?
