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: 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.
: 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
: Both in the last four days; Longest on a regional 57mins from DUB-PLH on an ATR42, or 1hr 58mins from PLH-MAN on a DHC8 including a stop in BRS. Short
: Shortest 18 mins on a BA 744 from LHR to Fairford. Did a full power take off on the way home and was airborne within 1/3 of the runway. VBR Struds
: Longest Regional Flight: United Express DEN-SBA on a BAe 146-300 Shortest Mainline: United Airlines SBA-LAX on a 737-500 Regards, NZblue
: shortest on a "regular" airliner: PHL-BWI on US 737 longest on an RJ is nothing special: IAD-JFK on Indy

: Longest trip : MXP-HAM with a LH CRJ-100, 2h20 Shortest trip : MXP-ZRH with a LX ER4, about 40 mins, most of them over the fantastic scenario of the S
: Longest mainline: 321 PHL-LGA or 757 PHL-BWI, shortest RJ, CLT-MSP by far (3.5 hours).
: Longest RJ: DEN-CLE on a CO EMB-145 at 2hrs and 45min. They actually served us a snack. I was totally shocked.
: DTW to Bangor (and back) -- awful flight -- way way too long for the amount of room on a CRJ 200
: MSN-HSV-MSN via CVG each way 3.5 hours each way. All on CRJ's.... of course, I don't know if it really counts because there was a stop on each flight.
