My example pales in comparison with the ones mentioned above, but it is still a longish one: AM flies a 752 between MEX and LIM non-stop. According to the Great Circle Mapper the distance is 2,285 nm (5 hours 45 minutes southbound and 6 hours northbound).

Ethiopian Airlines sometimes flies its 757s nonstop to Frankfurt from Addis Ababa, a distance of 2881.44nm (about 7 hours and 20 minutes). There were also instances this winter when they flew nonstop from Heathrow to Addis, a distance of 3181.09nm

I am thinking either MDW-SNN or KWI-SNN. We do some weird routing to/from KWI so I think the http://www.landings.com/evird.acgi$pass*62256647!_h-www.landings.com/_landings/pages/search/search_dist_apt.html may be accurate for a direct flight, but not TZ. The MDW-SNN (awesome early morning departure along the shore of Lake Michigan) was a ferry flight and KWI-SNN was live. There could very well have been some a bit longer, and correct me if I am wrong, but that's pretty much getting all the range we can out of the aircraft. I love every minute of flying in the 757-200 and -300.

What about the CO 757s that served Geneva for a short time? Wasn't that all the way from EWR? Also, I believe at one point CO 752s operated EWR-AMS, until being replaced with the 762ERs and 764ERs. Where do the CO 777s serve AMS from?

As Industrybuff mentioned, during the late 1980's/early 1990's, UK charter flights from Air Europe, Monarch and Air2000 frequently used B757's from the UK to MCO and Carribean destinations stopping via Bangor, Maine. These tech stops lasted about an hour and for the MCO flights were often used for passengers to clear immigration, thus saving time for passengers on arrival in Florida.
With favourable winds, these B757's could sometimes make the return MCO-UK flight non-stop.

Monarch used to fly LTN-BGR-LAS with the 757-200 in 235Y config. I would not have wanted to do that. It was at it's MTOW on departure from LTN.I worked on check-in at the time and the passengers were total trash. All of the smoking seats used to fill up first and it appeared that a shell suit was compulsory attire! If there had been a fire on board the results would have been catastrophic due to the amount of synthetic fibres.
I also remember flying to BGI on a BY 767-200 from MAN. An Airtours 757 left for BGI just before us, routeing via BGR. Unfortunately they encountered strong headwinds and had to stop in KEF first. I think it took them around 15 hours. We were already sunning ourselves on the beach by the time they arrived!
The customer is always right.....unless he is a passenger!
