What are for the moment the longest NONSTOP commercial flights worldwide by aircraft type. So no special delivery flights, but flights where you and I can by tickets for (assuming we have enough money for full business class flights   )?

I have added some guesses, please share your ideas.
All variants are considered as 1 type, e.g. 333 includes original 333 as well as HGW, 772 included 777-200LR, 777-200ER, etc...


AIRBUS

318: JFK-LCY (BA)
319:
320:
321: LHR-THR (BD), or some American East Coast - West Coast?
332: CDG-KIX
333:
342:
343:
345: SIN-EWR (SQ)
346:
388: DXB-YYZ (EK)


BOEING

733
734
735
736
737
738
739
744
752: EWR-ATH (CO)
753
762
763
764
772: DEL-ORD
773



Thanks for completing this list.

Very interesting topic......

LH(operated by Privatair) fly a B737-800 as follows:

LH627 tue/thu/sat DMM 00H50 / FRA 06h15 : Duration 6hrs 15 mins

This must be one of the longest B737-800 flights I guess?

They don't. They've never flown them farther than TXL.

The longest scheduled nonstop 737 flight I can think of is AMS-IAH.

Quoting Cory6188 (Reply 5):

I believe that EWR-TXL is CO's longest 757 route, though Delta flies CVG-AMS with their 757s, which are PW powered. There was also the one off DL 757 flight on NRT-SEA.

ORD-HKG is 6772nm

Unfortunately DL no longer flies CVG-AMS with the 757. One of the longer ones still flying is DKR-JFK. This flight routinely takes between 8:30 - 9:00 of flight time. There may be longer as I do not claim to be the expert on this.

After lurking here for long time I signed up today so here we go...let the journey begin  
LH (PrivatAir) - FRA-PNQ is way up there as well as far as longest non-stop route flown with 737-800. This one used to be all business service but was changed to mix class few months ago. Great circle mapper puts it at 4160 miles.
