Well, we see this thread spring up all the time, along with longest, but check out what Air Canada is up to:
Vancouver - Victoria, 39 miles, on an A319. Total time is set for 26 minutes, same as the regular Dash-8s that make a run on this route (have been on gate-gate -8s in 20 minutes, with flight time well under 15). Now this should be fun in an Airbus. Looks like it takes place in November (dunno how long it will run for). Working out a trip that includes a hop in YVR in a couple of weeks, so will see if I can get on this flight and attempt to write a report.

United used to sell seats on its maintainance ferrys on SFO-OAK, which are directly across San Fransisco Bay from each other. LAX-ONT on a CRJ is also a very short jet route. Air Cal used to sell SNA-LAX on their 737s.
