Amirs and I have been starting threads about the longest commercial non-stop flights. So far we have the 767-200ER and the 777-200ER. Lets expand the parameters! What is the longest scheduled commercial flight on the A332, A333 or the A342/3? (the 500's is EWR-SIN and I think the 600's is LAX-BKK). If you know the longest flight for any other widebody such as the 763, 764, 773, or 744 please feel free to post as well.

Quoting LTU932 (Reply 20):
Doubtful. That distance is very much touching the edge of the A333's range, and QF doesn't have high gross weight versions, as those don't even exist for the GE engine A333.
According to a.net, the A333's max range is 5500nm, and the proposed trip is 4824nm, so it might work.
Quoting LTU932 (Reply 20): As for longest route for the 767-300ER, my money is on SVO-LAX in a polar routing. Almost 6,000 nm distance.
This is 5281nm, which is near the end of its range.
Let's see if I can total this up...
747-400(ER?)- QF LAX-MEL (6883nm)
777-200ER- CO EWR-HKG (7009nm)
767-300ER- SU LAX-SVO (5281nm)
767-200ER- LY TLV-MIA (5738nm)
A330-300-(proposed) QF SYD-PEK (4824nm) or CX HKG-LHR (5209nm)
A330-200- AF CDG-NRT (5256nm)
A340-300- AC YYZ-PEK? (5716nm)
A340-500- SQ EWR-SIN (duh) (8285nm)
A340-600- CX JFK-HKG (7014nm)
Please feel free to correct/edit this list. This is great, keep them coming!

Quoting 123 (Reply 16): LB VVI/MAD/VVI on 767-300ER could be added on this list?
Aeroflot's LAX-SVO is, IIRC, the longest 763 flight, at 6078mi. Air Canada uses 763s on YYZ-TLV which is also longer, at 5789mi. El Al will also use 763ERs on YYZ-TLV this summer when the 762ERs move to MIA-TLV (6603mi, longest 762ER route) Santa Cruz-Madrid is 5532mi.
LAX-MEL is now exclusively served by the 744ER barring some freak problem at QF, but was innagurated and operated by both QF and UA with the 744A. The longest route ever served on a scheduled basis by any 744 was HKG-JFK, served by both UA and CX within the last decade.

: The 767-300ER's range is actually 6105 nm if I'm not mistaken, so 5281 nm is well within the 767's range. The only issue is that the routing could ma
