What was the longest and shortest flight that you took?

Top Three Longest

1. OZ 222 - ICN to JFK - B747-400M - Scheduled as 14:00, Actual: 14 Hours, 15 Minutes

2. OZ 221 - JFK to ICN - B747-400M - Scheduled as 14:10, Actual: 13 Hours, 30 Minutes

3. EY 101 - AUH to JFK - A340-500 - Scheduled as 12:40(?), Actual: 12 Hours, 35 Minutes

Top Three Shortest

1. 5J 308 - CGY to CEB - ATR-72-500 - Scheduled as 00:50, Actual: 50 Minutes (TIE)
5J 309 - CEB to CGY - " " " " " " " " "
1. 2P 258 - CEB to MPH - Q300 - Scheduled as 1:00, Actual: 50 Minutes (TIE)
2P 259 - MPH to CEB - " " " " " "
2. WN 1841 - LAX - SFO - B737-700 - Scheduled as 1:15, Actual: 1 Hour, 5 Minutes


It was amazing how fast OZ 221/222 went by, It felt A LOT longer when I was on board EY 101. I think its because the shades are always down and we departed NYC at 12AM and arrived at ICN at 3AM, so it was dark, maybe that helped, same goes for the return flight.

Shortest I've done is DAC to CGP, 18 minutes or so. When I lived in Bangladesh, by road this took 9 hours so, with several ferries.

But seemingly shorter was CCU - DAC in a DC10!

Longest was DXB to JFK during the volcanic ash saga. 13h45 scheduled, but it was close to 16. We flew through the Mediterranean, over Libya and Tunisia, over Gibraltar, then transatlantic.

LAX - SYD and MEL - LAX are my two longest, I think 14 and 13.5 hrs each IIRC.

PRC - PHX was probably my shortest, all of around 25 minutes or so. ATL-HSV is another on the short list, quite feasible to spend more time taxiing and waiting on the ground in ATL than actually in the air to HSV.

Longest was LAX-TLV via YYZ on El Al B747-400, we pushbacked in LAX at 13:18 (GMT-8), and landed in TLV at 16:09 (GMT+2) the next day, that means total time of 16 hours and 52 minutes. We were in YYZ about 2.5 hours.

Longest nonstop flight was TLV-YYZ, El Al B767-200ER, 12 hours 20 minutes. I did the same route on a 747 which takes 'only' 11 hours.
Second longest was TLV-EWR, Continental B777-200ER, 11 hours 27 minutes.

My shortest flight was done earlier this month, RPN-SDV (domestic in Israel), Ayit Shorts 360 flight time of 30 minutes.
Second shortest was the SDV-RPN section, which was 32 minutes.
Third shortest was LCA-TLV with pretty large plane - Boeing B757-300, Arkia, 37 minutes.

Shortest- ANC to ENA (and return) on Era- 60 miles. Dash 8 both ways.

Longest in my mind- SNN to PHL on a US 752. IFE was inop, and my the only book I hadn't yet read that trip was Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. Now THAT was a loooong 7 hours!

Distance wise, IAH-HNL is further than FRA-EWR but the block time for FRA-EWR makes it longer time-wise.
