I was just wondering what the longest distance for a flight number is to include equipment changes. CO 51 starts in FRA flies to EWR , changes equipment and continues to IAH then flies it's final leg to EZE which is a distance of 10,329 miles. I'm sure there are longer ones aren't there?

probably VS201 SYDLHR (direct but actually via HKG) + all the SYD/LHR with BA & QF flight numbers.

In terms of actual distances flown (not GC distances), UA1 was almost always longer than UA2. In terms of GC distances, they were identical, of course.

I would have thought NZ 1 and NZ 2 are long enough. The NZ 744F, is it technically NZ or Atlas?
