UA does ORD-SJU and IAD-SAN which are long legs for the A320. My friend who is a UA Captain for the 320 told me that the IAD-SAN route is the longest route UA's 320 operate on. I can tell you his name on request.

Yeah. They also run a 737-700 on the route. I was shocked the first time I heard that the could do that. The one that really astounds me is ZRH-IAH in a 737-700!!

You'd be surprised how far narrowbodies can fly when seating capacity is limited! Although I'm not sure if they take the excess luggage space and add fuel capacity on their planes or not.

I agree...I guess they don't require as much cargo space when your only flying a couple dozen people, hence the extra fuel tanks.

They run AMS-IAH on behalf of KLM, not ZRH-IAH.

PIT-LAX, thats nothing my friend. B6 BOS-LGB is an hour longer then that.

MCOFlyer: Don't need his name. I can tell you he is wrong. IAD-SFO is longer then IAD-SAN by 166 miles. Also, right now the SAN service is done by a A319 and not a A320 (is we are just including 320 as the title says).

Longest A320 route in the US I can find is JetBlue BOS-LGB 2597 mi, 6hr 05 min.

I may be missing one

But all these routes flown by PrivatAir is flown using 319LR and BBJ1 so you cant really compare it to a regular 319 or 737

When making comparisons about the longest ranges these aircraft fly,one needs to distinguish between scheduled commerical passenger flights and speciality business only flights. There is no point in comparing apples and oranges for a true representation of some of the extreme ranges these aircraft fly. I find long range routes operated by scheduled commercial passenger aircraft very interesting as they truely test the limits of endurance and make for much fairer comparisons.

It has auxillary fuel tanks (adding a large amount of fuel capacity). It also has the uprated engines from the 738/739.

Yeah, and that flight was basically regularly stopping at MSP all summer to refuel.

MyTravel Airways Scandinavia pack in 177 pax in their A320 and fly OSL-LPA which is 4,105km, 2,551miles, 2217nm and takes 5hrs 40mins.

Same goes for their 211-seat A321. Not too shabby, that...

BMED flies A320s LHR to Freetown, in Sierra Leone. There is, however, like many BMED routes, a 'technical stop' on this 8h 45min route.

BMED does fly some long non-stop A320 legs:

LHR-THR: 2749 miles and 5h 50mins

LHR-DKR: 2703 miles and 6h 20mins

LHR-BAK: 2493 miles and 5h 31mins

AS739X,

I believe B6 is always pushing the A320 on that route. My friend flies IAD-SAN 6x a year. According to him, thats the longest A320 route though I have seen the A320 on MCO-SFO.

Eurofly does MUC-BDA with a 319 but I'm not sure what in configuration they have the aircraft. If it's all business class I guess it's not too unusual, but that's a long way way for a regularly configured 319. Maybe someone can fill me in.

25 LH648 : Air Astana is flying ALA-IST (2447 mi) on A320.
26 YULYMX : AC Fly the 320 to YVR from YUL pretty long (2295 mi) with strong wind... the LAX and SFO are made by A319[Edited 2006-10-11 16:24:52]
