Awwwww man!

I guess I gotta try harder to stump an aviation enthusiast!  Big grin  Big grin

well....yeah, I believe that is it. I have not been able to think of a longer one myself. I dont think anyone flies direct to the U.S. Territories in the south pacific, do they? CO flies one but they stop in HNL first and change planes.

What is it in the lower 48?...I would guess SAN-BOS or SEA-MIA....But then again I'm not and expert on the great circle routes and all...I remember someone once posting that SLC-BWI was longer than SFO-BWI, seemed pretty odd to me, can anyone explain?

Which of these is furthest EAST? SEA, RNO or LAX?

Most would guess RNO because it's in an inland state.

I'm fairly sure that BOS-SAN on an AA737 has to be right up there as the longest flight in the domestic 48. I think we block it for right around 6.5 hours.

That's a darn long time in a single aisle....

Hey there AAnalyst --

Sent you an e-mail re: AA51, thanks for your help.

Just checked, and BOS-SAN is 2588 mi, while MIA-SEA is 2724 mi. Both flown by AA!

Does CO still fly HNL-GUM? That route is 3801 mi.



"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

AA BOS-SAN - 6h17m now on a B757 (it alternates between a 737 and 757 depending on the season)

AA MIA-SEA - no longer flying the route unfortunately.

So I guess BOS-SAN wins...

I didn't know AA had discontinued MIA-SEA -- that's pretty recent, isn't it? I remember checking on it not too long ago.

AS fly SEA-MIA daily using 737s according to their website:

Departs 8:45 am Arrives 4:59 pm, with the time difference I work out it to be either 4h 14min or 5h 14min (can't remember whether it's a 3 or 4 hour time difference!)

So either way AA BOS-SAN wins!

Alaska flies the MIA-SEA route now. On a 73G. That is probably the longest "lower 48" flight non stop...

5hr 14 min, but I bet MIA-SEA is longer in time , due obviously , to the prevailing winds.
I am assuming we're not talking about the 45 min flight in between two parents and their lap children who have ear infections and haven't slept for 24 hours.  Big grin

yup, Bruce is right.. but for a long time AS was operating the flight with 739's. Now they just operate the 739 to MCO.
