(5032nm DOH-PER Qatar 77L from 3July, previously 332)
5016nm HKG-AMS Cathay Pacific 744x7, previously 744x4 343x3

Schedule Changes of Interest:
5015nm Air China will join MU and AF on CDG-PVG with 343 from 10 March, previously 25 March.

Philippine Airlines returns to GUM on US-Manila flights:
PR operates MNL-LAX and MNL-SFO (6348nm and 6071nm respectively) nonstop in the eastbound direction only. Westbound flights will now operate LAX/SFO-GUM-MNL. Since the spring of 2011 they had operated both these routes via HNL due to runway construction in GUM.

The distance saved in returning to the routing via Guam is significant:



SFO-MNL via HNL: 6691nm vs. SFO-MNL via GUM: 6438nm
LAX-MNL via HNL: 6828nm vs. LAX-MNL via GUM: 6679nm

“[Guam’s] two runways are being extended at a cost of $15 million in an effort to prepare for larger civilian and military aircraft. The airport’s primary runway, designated 6L/24R, will be extended from 10,000 to 12,000 linear feet, and the secondary runway, 6R/24L, has been extended from 8,000 to 10,000 linear feet. Completion of the runway extension projects will equip the Guam Airport with the capability to accommodate long haul, fully loaded flights and direct service to the U.S. West Coast.“

I agree, cedarjet. Hate to see a top ten route discontinued.

BKK and Thai take a hit in status:
from the seventh longest flight in the world to #141 (BKK-MAD).

Thank you!

I find these routes interesting as it shows whom is pushing which aircraft.
While I'm sad to see an ever decreasing fraction operated by the 747, that is as economics dictates.

ps (edit):
I just noted, with the TI BKK-LAX route change, this makes SQ the last opperator of the A345 on a route that couldn't be opperated by the A346.

I have noticed this as well, and it seems to me the trend has accelerated lately. For example, in the February schedules, the only KE 747 to N. America is a single flight to LAX (out 11 stations: ATL ORD DFW LAS LAX JFK SFO SEA YYZ YVR & IAD). Its been many, many years since that's been the case. Seems like a baby blue Korean 744 has been a staple at ORD... forever!

As you imply, its inevitable, but saddening as well.

KE's new ICN-NBO flight will probably become the longest non-stop A330 flight in the world when it starts this summer.

BNAOWB had emailed me wondering whether KE's two charters (if I'm remembering right) on this route might lead to a regularly scheduled flight... It was the first I had heard of it.

So they have plans to make it regularly scheduled? And they're to be flying it with a 330?   

I could enter it on the list as a proposed if you had a start date. Do you have one? Otherwise I suppose "summer" would do.

At 5431nm it wouldn't quite beat 5652nm Qantas 332x7 on their AKL-LAX route, but no matter, it would be of a rare breed that connects NE Asia with Africa (I can only think of one other: TAAG's 77Ex1 PEK-LAD, 6359nm).

What a great route! Thanks for the info, HOONS90!

Cheers!,

So, speaking of KE's proposed ICN-NBO flight... its official:

http://www.flightglobal.com/blogs/th...east-africa-with-nairobi-link.html

First posted by KFlyer here:
KE To Launch ICN-NBO (by KFlyer Jan 31 2012 in Civil Aviation)

The flight will enter the list as:
(5431nm ICN-NBO Korean 332x3 scheduled 21 June) and will be Jomo Kenyatta International Airport's first nonstop flight above 5000nm.

In the link above, the Flightglobal article speculates the flight may be the longest flight in block time in its westerly direction.

I wonder if anyone can come up with the block times on the longer Qantas AKL-LAX 332 flight in the southerly direction.

By the way... Before anyone jumps on me  

Now that I've had time to do a little research, I realize there are a few more NE Asia to African nonstop flights beyond the DT LAD-PEK flight I came up with earlier:

MS CAI-PEK, ET ADD-PEK, SA 6316nm JNB-PEK along with the MS proposed 5190nm CAI-NRT scheduled for 15 April.

Any others? (I'm talking about NE China / Japan / Korea nonstops to Africa)

No, I think that's still QF's AKL-LAX A332 nonstop.

Wow... Just wow. I saw a KE 744 at YVR last fall, but that route at 4439nm is 'too short' to make your list. (FYI, thank you for expanding it all the way to 250 routes!)

Reviewing your list, it looks like the 5209nm ICN-LAX is the longest route KE is flying the 744. I'm shocked to see that. I knew it would happen one day, but I thought after the 748I entered their fleet... I see ICN-AKL at 5200nm is next in line. Switching out ICN-ATL and ICN-ORD to the 77W really brings in the radius KE flies the 744.

I suspect this puts ICN-LAX & AKL on notice for equipment change to a more fuel efficient airliner.  
Oh well, to be honest, if I flew LAX to ICN, I'd want to try the A388 anyway.

I second that request. Partially as I'm *very* curious on the viable capabilities of the A330-200 (and 788/789/A359/77E and a few others...).

lightsaber, another factor to consider on LAX-AKL is diversion fuel requirements. Apart from CHC (402 nm) and WLG (259 nm) in a pinch, there is not much within 1,000 nm of AKL. From overhead AKL: NOU at 1002 nm, NAN at 1161 nm & SYD at 1169 nm are about all there is that can take a wide body. I don't know what the exact effect is, but it must have one, maybe sunriservalley can make an estimate.

Good point. I would still like to know the block times for an A332 capability standpoint. Its one thing to look at payload/range curves. Its another thing to see a route in service.
