Reading that other thread, I didn't realise that I'd been on one of the longer 752 flights! EWR-LIM at 3631mi / 7h45 which is less than a couple of hundred miles off the max range of the 752 (pax and bags).

MIA-SCL by Ladeco (before it merged into Lan Chile now LAN) with the 752 was one of the longest routes.
CO's new service out of EWR to Europe (especially the Hamburg, Berlin and Stockholm routes) test the limits of the 752's range, as well as the CLE-LGW service.
Also, several European charter carriers utilize the 752 on some rather long routes - while these are not scheduled flights per se, they operate on a regular basis during a time period (ie, every Tuesday and Friday from Novemeber thru April)......some flights from the Europe use the 752 to go to points in the Dominican Republic, for example, although many due make a fuel stop, especially on the westbound journey.
