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.

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

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.

Quoting AlexPorter (Reply 6): 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.
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.

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.
