Also what was your shortest flight on a "regular" airliner.

For me, it was 2.5 to 3 hours on a CRJ-200 from MGM to DFW, I believe headwinds played a factor.

3hrs from BDL-YYZ on an Air Ontario Dash 8. Headwinds and then a ground hold once in YYZ waiting for a gate to open. That wasn't much fun at all, even for me.

1. Don't forget DL CMH-CVG, about 50 min. scheduled, flown 9x a day, including 2x with 757s.

2. When did BA fly through LAX to SAN? I though the daily scheduled 744 that flew from 1998 to 2001 went through PHX...

Thanks,
Alex

NZ ATR72-500, WLG-HLZ return. Fligth to HLZ was 1 hour 5 mins and the return, one week later was also 1 hour 5 mins.

Regular airliner for me was from CHC-WLG last year. Flight time is 45 mins, but the flight was delayed for about 15 minutes and the B733 arrived in WLG on time.

777ER-did you hear about the WLG -CHC flight that took 22 minutes a couple months ago, apparantly it broke some sort of record. It was a 733 or a 320. (can't remember) and I read it in a Magazine at WLG airport.

I think I remember reading it. If I remember correctly severe winds in the aircrafts favor is the offender. I will try and get more information from some one who works at Wellington Airport Operations about it. Hopfully the person can tell me the flight number and the date.

Shortest Mainline = AUS-IAH (CO B753) 26min

Longest Regional = IAH-YYZ (COEX ERJ145XR) 4hr

And we wonder why the regional pilots complain about the disparities between services. I don't. And I don't even take sides in those arguments.  Big grin

Shortest Mainline: BA used to collect passengers for its YVR-LHR 747 flight by first flying SEA-YVR. I've been on that one at least twice. Even shorter (but smaller) was Alaska Airline's JNU-GST flight on a 737-700. I think flight time was 18 min.

Longest Regional: Pilgrim used to fly a F-27 from JFK to YOW. I can't remember the flight time, but it must have been 3+ hours. I suffered through that flight more times than I want to remember. In the early/mid 1980s Air Wisconsin offered ORD-HVN service on a BAe-146. This too was 3+ hours and I suffered through it once before vowing to never do that again.


25 Eric777 : Longest regional for me was CLE-HPN on CO ERJ-135. Spent close to two hours onboard. Shortest mainline: SJU-STT on AA 757 about 28 minutes of flight

32 USrampleadSTL : Longest mainline: 321 PHL-LGA or 757 PHL-BWI, shortest RJ, CLT-MSP by far (3.5 hours).
