I did a search, and I saw nothing.

I am going from Chicago to Italy on a 767-300. Seems like a long route for the 763. What is the longest route for a 763?

Thanks.

AC flies YYZ-TLV with the 763. EL AL flies the same route with the 762.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Av8Air/Icelandair's MAN-CPT non-stop routing comes in at 6140 miles on the Great Circle Mapper. LGW-JNB = 5595, YYZ-TLV = 5788 and GIG-FRA is 5930.

David,
I thought AV8's flights operated MAN-DUB-PMI-CPT-PMI-DUB-MAN?

Under most conditions I think a B767-300ER would struggle to comfortably operate a non-stop MAN-CPT-MAN service with 282 passengers, which is how I believe the AV8/Icelandair B767 is laid out.

Just thought I'd mention that SK flew a 767 CPH-Bali nonstop to pick up scandinavians there after the bombings.

I think the article in SAS Inside said it was a 16-hour flight!

SK also used to visit LAX with a 767-200 (maybe later on it became a 763).

Melbourne to Tokyo on Qantas is operated by a B767-300ER series.
QF 179 is 10 hours 30 minutes, whilst the reverse flight:
QF 180 is 10 hours 25 minutes.

Now that is a long flight!!

AC does not operate non-stop to India with 763. If you meant YYZ-DEL, it's an A343.

YYZ-TLV is 5030 nm, and takes almost 12 hours on the return flight (TLV-YYZ)

AC used to operate the flight with a 767 a long time ago, but the routing was YYZ-LHR-BOM-SIN - none of the sectors were longer than YYZ-TLV for example.

I thought AC started flying YYZ to India again? I was in YYZ in October and they were boarding a flight to Indai ( not sure which cisty). Have they stopped that route since October?

Is this thread just talking about non-stop flights?

AMM and BY (now discontinued) operate LGW or MAN to PVR via MCO/SFB
5948miles.

If non-stops, then MEL-NRT has it at the moment - 5060mi non stop.

I know when I flew with AA we flew the 767-200ER and 300ER from MIA to LHR and CDG. I know the LHR route was close to 11 hrs, which was miserable!!

From http://gc.kls2.com

MEL - NRT = 4397 nm
MIA - LHR = 3845 nm
CPH - LAX = 4887 nm
GIG - FRA = 5153 nm
YYZ - TLV = 5030 nm
ORD - FCO = 4191 nm

So RG GIG - FRA is the current longest non stop B767 route

I don't understand all the "miserable" comments about the 767 on long-haul flights. In Y class, I think the 2-3-2 arrangement is superior to any other aircraft for comfort and flexibility.

First Choice Airways operate a weekly Gatwick-Puerto Vallarta service with a B767-300ER. The outbound flight stops in Cancun to refuel, but the return leg is non-stop Puerto Vallarta-Gatwick which according to Great Circle Mapper is 5742nm.

B767s have of course been used on longer non-stop routes in the past, before the A330/B777 became as common as they are now.

They are going non-stop back from PVR to the UK. Bloody hell! That is a long way to sit in a charter seat. Flew PVR-MCO-LGW with BY a few years ago which was long but at least there was a stop.
Do you know how long that flight takes?

Are you sure it wasn't operated with the 762ER at some point in the late 1980s? I have a picture of my father standing outside of an AC 767 in BOM that he flew on that route, it was in 1989.
