Quoting Gemini573 (Reply 2): I would have to agree with Ktachiya. I think it's CX on the HKG-JFK run. It was the world's longest flight at one time until SQ introduced their ultra-long haul flights to SIN from LAX and JFK.
I thought SA)">CO's EWR-HKG beat CX's HKG-JFK (if only by a few miles)
I know at one point SA has them scheduled for non-stop JNB-IAD, I do not know for sure whether it ever actually flew it, but if it did, that is the longest A340-600 route flown, or really that could be, as it would be coming into IAD on vapors (remember winds).

Quoting OceansWorld (Reply 8): LHR-HNL is 6289nm long, while HKG-JFK is 7014nm. The A346 has a range of 7750nm.
Can anybody tell me why my LHR-JFK flight on a VS A346 was "weight-listed" last year? I figured that the CSA was blowing smoke when she told me that, even if the winds aloft were pretty bad and the flight completely full.
