I know several airlines including Finnair fly to Phuket using 757's from north Europe with a stop in Sharjah!

Also Balair does same from Zurich.

I've even seen a 737-8 NG from an airline from Eastern Europe fly to HKT with stop in Sharjah.

Monarch used to use the 757 from MCO back to LGW which was sometimes non-stop.

The longest non-stop service is going to be EWR-TXL starting this year on CO.

Wasn't there a US domestic carrier using 752s for service to Ireland and the United Kingdom from the US East Coast? AA I believe?

I know Delta uses 752s from JFK to LAX...I'm sure that's one of the longest.

i'm thought CO once flew IAH-LIM or SCL or something like that.

There's a seasonal CVG-LGW service, which is 3nm's longer than EWR-TXL.

LGW-MCO may have been a past service too, with a charter airline.

I can't find the link to it now, but isn't there a Canadian travel agency chartering Thomas Cook 757's to fly from the UK to Western Canada non-stop? I seem to recall they offered 35" pitch throughout the aircraft in economy. That would put those flights in the 4,000+ mile category--for instance, LGW-YVR is 4,748 miles.

Cheers.

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

How are half of these routes even possible? A.net says the range of a 757 is 3929nm with the P&W engines (Thats the longest range).....

For instance... IAH-SCL is 4600+ mi.... not happening.....

EWR-TXL is 3980.... MAYBE they could make it there w/ good winds.... but what about making it back? HOW???

Now AA had a BOS-MAN flight with a 752, and that is very possible.... but these others.... seems like they will be stopping for fuel quite a bit on the way back

Domestically, these are the longest 757 routes I could find:

SAN-BOS, 2588 miles (AA now flies a 757 on this route instead of a 767)

SEA-MIA, 2724 miles, although I don't know if anyone flies this non-stop, much less with a 757.

MSP-ANC, 2519 miles, NW flies this - is it still a seasonal route?

LAX-HNL, 2556 miles, NW and ATA

Internationally, BOS-SNN is 2,895 miles, which AA will using a 757. MIA-LIM is 2,608 miles

N1120A is correct, EWR-TXL is the longest by far at 3,980 miles.

Did I miss any?

I know back in the 90's LADECO (Chilean Airline) flew to MIA from SCL with a 752.

AA uses the 752 from MIA to La Paz & Santa Cruz in Bolivia (South America).

AA uses the 752 from MIA to both SFO & LAX (their are 763ER flights as well).

I really don't see how a plane can have longer range when it is burning more fuel. Also, never believe the A.net stats.

Quoting AA777 (Reply 7):
EWR-TXL is 3980.... MAYBE they could make it there w/ good winds.... but what about making it back? HOW???

EWR-TXL is 3980 Statute Miles. The range of the 752 is 3900 Nautical Miles. EWR-TXL is 3450 Nautical Miles, giving them 450nm of still air range left when flying against the wind. With the tail wind, it is a breeze

Quoting PanAm747 (Reply 8):
Internationally, BOS-SNN is 2,895 miles, which AA will using a 757. MIA-LIM is 2,608 miles

CO does EWR-BHX, which is farther than BOS-SNN. EWR-BRS is coming soon, as is EWR-HAM (which may or may not be a 762) and the aforementioned EWR-TXL is the longest proposed.

I would not consider any 757 flight on a route that is dominated by the 737 even close to being on the list as the "longest" 757 flight

CO's EWR-PRG will be by far the longest.

Is CO planning PRG service? It would make sense, though, with Skyteam.

Longest I know of:

EWR-TXL: 3458nm
CLE-LGW: 3270nm
EWR-OSL: 3212nm

They are, after the APB winglets get certified and put on more of the fleet.

Quoting NZblue (Reply 23):
United has a once-weekly, year-round, non-stop DEN-KOA flight using a 757-200.

According to the Great Circle Map, the mileage for this route is 3,329 miles, which is pretty impressive considering the "hot and high" factor of Denver International, especially during the summer. This flight is actually longer than AA's BOS-MAN and mileage-wise compares with other B757 trans-Atlantic routes of similar length.

DEN is only hot, and not that hot, for 2-3 months a year. It is cold more often. Also, they have a 16,000 foot runway there (along with a plethora of 13,000 footers). The 752 is so high performance that handles MEX with relative ease, so DEN-KOA is not a problem. BTW, in Nautical Miles, DEN-KOA is nearly 700nm shorter than the longest 752 flight
