I can't find on this post so hopefully I'm the only one. We've all been asking whats the longest flight served by certain airplanes so far we haven't talked about B767-300ER. What airline served the longest nonstop flight on B767-300ER? I've notice AC did YYZ - NRT 6406 miles during winter season past few years but now its YYZ - TLV 5781 miles. This is the link to another post were he mentioned AC did YYZ - NRT using B767-300ER.

Alitalia also regularly deploys the 767 on the MXP-PVG run, which clocks in at around 5694 mi (4948 nm).
The SFO run (back when they still flew there) was also a good stretch, 5947 mi. At one stage, after they retired the 747s and before they had enough 777s, AZ also used the 767 on flights to NRT (6072 mi from MXP and 6169 from FCO). That's pretty long!
Of the other long services once (or still) operated by B763s, the following come to mind:
- DL ATH/IST - JFK
- MS CAI-JFK
- Lan Chile had something going to Sydney via some island in the south pacific
- AA LHR-LAX
And Dec 17 (At this moment). But in some Weeks we may have news about new aircraft (another 763) and more frequencies to MAD, + MVD-REC-TFN on 757. Pluna has authorization to fly 8 frequencies per week to/from Spain.

Quoting Plunafan (Reply 18): I repeat, "Sometimes" (Dec/Jan/Feb and Aug) Pluna operates non-stops MVD-MAD-MVD flights. They operates on Saturdays (one per month).
Sound slike a very inefficient way to serve a destination....so 4x per YEAR....wow, that gives me the felxibility that I need....wouldn't want to miss that flight and sit around and wait for the next one
Roger that, turning to our "other" left
: no problem the next one (next day) will bring you with 1Stop service to MVD.[Edited 2005-11-07 02:12:15]

: No DFW-FCO with AA, only JFK-FCO and ORD-FCO and that is seasonally.
: TWA was going to do STL-NRT at 5535 nm with a 767-200ER that could have made a good distance for a 767
: NZ used this type on the AKL-ICN route for a period, a distance of 5789 miles. However I think they only did one of the legs non-stop. If I am wrong I
: LOT flew WAW-SIN in the early 1990s with 767-200ER. Great circle mapper shows the range at 5849 miles.
: Don't forget about Air Canada currently servicing PVG from YVR daily Boeing 767-300 service comes in at 5611 miles. 12 hr and 10 min flight.[Edited 20
