What is the longest flight operated by a B737 (except 737BJ) ?
I think it's COPA from Panama, flying non stop to Buenos Aires (EZE).

Lufthansa/Privatair operate Munich (or Frankfurt)-New York non-stop using a 737/BBJ2.

i do believe the alaska anc-ord is the longest at 2849miles. their sea-mia flight comes in second at 2772, then the ewr-sfo and hnl-vancouver flights at around 2600.

It would have to be Lufthansa/PrivatAirs route from Germany to North America, using the Boeing 73NG.

Even though Aloha's SNA-HNL route is not the longest it's definitely one of the longest overwater.

To COPA Airlines (CM) definitely correspond three of the longest flights in the world operated by 737, in this specific case, 737-700 with winglets.

Those routes are non-stop fights from the Hub of the Americas in Panamas to EZE, GRU, LAX. SCL is a pretty long run also.

I believe that Virgin Blue holds the record for the 737 Longest flight and it was during the delivery of one of the -700 that Flew from Honolulu to somewhere close to Melbourne in Victoria, Australia but it was not a schedule flight.

I flew on Continental, B738 Newark-San Jose (Costa Rica), it took 5h30.
I know they fly with a B737-700 from Newark to Panama which is longer.

My bet stays with Alaska's Anchorage to O'hare- it's over seven hours. What about their new run to Denver, starting in June? Denver- a hot-n-high airport... a seven hour flight... in June... on a 73G. Sheesh! Can someone tell us how many miles den-anc is?

Astraeus operate a weekly oil-charter with a 737-700 from LGW to Malabo (Equatorial Guinea) which is around 7hrs I believe. Not sure of the distance but must be in the region of 3000nm.

The weekly oil charter from LGW to Malabo by Astraeus is quite long.
And over Sahara Desert, it's like an ETOPS flight for a B737-700 !!

I believe that WN's longest 737 flight is LAX-BWI using the 737-700. Small wonder why WN wants winglets on the 73G--it will reduce fuel burn by 4% on such a long flight.

The longest 737 flight I've been on was SEA-EWR.

To answer someone's question from above, the distance from ANC to DEN is appx 2375 miles.

I'm not able to look in a CRS right now, but how about the Continental flights from HNL to/via Guam ? That should be a long one, with lots of stops.

Euralair, was flying as a charter flight CDG-DKR (Dakar, Senegal) with a B738, non-stop (6 hours).

Now Air Senegal International operates twice DAILY between Dakar and Paris Orly with a B737-700, non stop.

Well, how about going Jakarta - Guangzhou on a 737-400! 4hrs on a 737 classic over water... Batavia is seeking an NG to go on this route... for obvious reasons... 1800NM ! Not something I'd like to do everyday thanks... 4hrs on a 734 with 170 seats! Yucks!

I see on the Austrian Airlines fly from Vienna to Maldive via Dubai on B737 600 operated by LAUDA AIR. It's really impressive nonsense because the route is usualli flown by charther operator with direct flight on more confortabele Wide bodies.
