What is the longest scheduled, passenger-carrying non-stop flight from your local airport? Include origin, destination, flight time, and Great Circle Mapper distance- go to http://gc.kls2.com.If applicable, include the longest domestic, and longest international flights, please. If you live in a metro area, such as NYC, include all of the airports in the area (LGA, JFK, EWR).
Here in wonderful Syracuse, our longest scheduled passenger flight is on Delta/Delta Connection. Both offer non-stop service, SYR-ATL. It's 793 miles, according to Great Circle Mapper, and around 2:15 non-stop.
If you include the charter carriers, TransMeridian wins, hands down. Non-stop SYR-LAS, at 2119 miles, and around 4:30 flight time. What's better than SYR-Sin City non-stop on a good old B727-200? I don't think there are many things around here that beat that...

This summer from EDI it will be TS and TCX to YYZ, when the summer timetable ends it'll be CO to EWR.
Longest domestic will be either EDI to SOU or Exeter on FlyBE I'd say. Oh, it'll be Jersey on BMI and BA. If you class that as domestic.

The longest continental US domestic flight is also the longest domestic flight from Miami. MIA-SEA served by Alaska Airlines Flight 17 with a total time of six hours and a half and a distance of 2724 mi.
International flights are kind of weird because we only goto Western Europe. The longest flight is MIA-HEL with Finnair flight 34 with a total time of nine hours in a half with a total distance of 5184 mi.
The longest one stop scheduled flight is AA153 MIA-NRT with a one hour stop in Chicago, a total distance flown of 7471 mi. and a flight time of seventeen hours and a half.

Before Nov. 1st of last year, the two longest flights out of STL were STL-HNL and STL-LGW. Now that the two have been cut, it is hard to say which is the longest, because STL is halfway in between the East and West Coast, and those are the two longest areas operated to from STL. Can anyone clarify for me the longest flight out of STL? Thanks.
