Hello guys, I can't find reliable information about this, so please if some of you have first hand info about this, it will be very welcomed.
( Please note that I'm talking about nonstop flights, so that excludes all the flights with tech stops between the initial and final destination ) Thanks in advance !!

Rgds.

If my memory serves me correct the old TAA had a 727LR model that did non stop SYD to PER - around the 5 hour mark.

Hi, Gonzalo...

I flew Mexicana a few times, in the mid 80s, on their MEX-SJU (2162 nm ) nonstop, on-board those magnificent 727-264ADV, specially fitted with "Jattos" or rockets, for a full payload performance out of high and hot airports.

Best regards

I don't recall the names, but there was one, maybe 2, carriers that scheduled non-stop transcontinental services with 727-100s in an all-first-class configuration. LA area to NYC area is about 2500 miles.

AC flew some long distance 722 flights, perhaps YVR-YYZ which are > 2000 miles. Also WA/DL flew East Coast - SLC with 722s, also > 200 miles. And finally, didn't MX fly 722s between MEX and NYC area nonstop, distance combined with altitude at MEX?

I was thinking, actually Aerosur VVI-MIA 2782NM, they do put the 727 every now and then instead of the Sharko 762.

PHNL-NTSU is a haul at 2259nm(2600sm) and that was with a bunch of freight on board and aux tanks.

The longest I ever did was BWI-ONT which was 1984nm(2283sm) with just standard fuel set up of 51k and fairly light payload. That was pretty cool, we blocked just over 5 into the wind.

There's a good video on YouTube of a Piedmont 727 flying from CLT-SFO back in 1989. From what I read in a thread on here recently, Piedmont had some 727's fitted with extra fuel tanks for transcons from CLT during the '80's.

PI flew CLT-SEA with the B722 which is something like 2280 NM IIRC. Fun departure from CLT on those steamy summer days!

Toward the end of the 727's days at DL, I flew a couple of SEA-ATL-SEA trips on the 727 (early 2000's). That always seemed like quite a haul for a 727.....long take off roll.

Speaking of Sterling Airways, they also did CPH-LPA non-stop which is a GC distance of 2055NM. Well, sometimes they had to stop in Faro on the way down, sometimes even both ways. But on paper it was non-stop, and on a good day it could do it. Just.

Didn't a a hijacked TWA 727 once fly from Boston-Paris? I recall reading in an aviation book when I was a kid about the plane being hijacked and the hijackers wanted to fly to Paris, so TWA dispatched a 707 to escort the 727 across the atlantic because the 727 Captain had never done any international flying before and wanted the 707 crew as a safety net.

The longest 727 ride I ever took was Den-Mia on UA back in the 1980s.



Why are people so against low yields?! If lower yields means more people can travel abroad, i'm all for it
