I think the longest distance you can travel on a US airline, departing the US and arriving in what is still
considered US territory would be the CO flight that
goes IAH-HNL-GUM. That is pretty incredible.

Maybe the EWR-HNL flight covers more in the way
of territory. Not sure. Either way, this is cool.

KBOS-KSAN is the longest I have gone inside the 48 states in a 738. Not a lot of fun in a 738.

In the Lower 48, I believe the longest US flight is MIA-SEA.

BOS-SAN (738) 6:29
BOS-LAX (757,76) 6:27
BOS-SFO (757,767) 6:39
BOS-SEA (738) 6:22
BOS-PHX (A320) 5:53
BOS-LAS (320,319) 5:58-6:01

MIA-SEA (763) 6:22
MIA-SFO (763, 757) 6:18
MIA-LAX (763, 757) 5:50

BDL-LAX (738) 6:09
BDL-SFO (A320) 6:18
BDL-PHX (A320) 5:26
BDL-LAS (320, 73G) 5:46-5:50

PVD-PHX (73G) 5:50

EWR-PHX (738,319) 5:11-5:50)
EWR-LAX (757) 6:07
EWR-SFO (757, 767)6:15-6:34

BOS-SFO can be the longest route in the domestic US at times. Some times it is listed as 6:39 and others 6:17.... MIA-SEA is long but I dont think its always the longest haul.... Also EWR-SFO is long, being from 6:15-6:34.

Afitch7881, MIA-LAX is also handled by a 772. The daily UA flight is 5:10 on the way there, and a quick 4:33 on the way back. Also, this I found on the sched a daily China Eastern flight that goes LAX-MIA (no MIA-LAX) on a 767 in 3:07. I honestly don't get this, because China Eastern does not serve MIA and MIA-LAX n 3hrs sounds impossible to me on a 767. Here it is...

Flight Details

Operates: Daily

Depart: LAX - Los Angeles, California, USA
Airline: MU - China Eastern Airlines Flight 8306
Stops: Nonstop
Aircraft: 767 - BOEING 767 (ALL SERIES)
Arrive: MIA - Miami International Airport

Elapsed
Time: 3 hours 7 minutes

I would have to say, EWR - HNL would have to be the longest segment leaving from within the US and landing in the US. However, I believe ATL - HNL was close when it was a nonstop. Are there any flights from within the lower 48 to Alaska that are pretty long, or do they all depart from the Northwest?

"I honestly don't get this, because China Eastern does not serve MIA "

This sounds like a code-share for two reasons:

1. The flight number-high numbers like that are indicative of code-shares

2. No foreign airline is allowed to fly a domestic US fliht except for placement purposes, and you cannot buy tickets on those flights unless you were on the international part of the flight and are continuing on to the second US stop.

At PHL I'll look up and see on the monitors:

"South African flight 7032 (a fake number) to ATL departing from gate E4"
"Aeromexico flight 9653 (a fake number) to ATL departing from gate E4"
"Delta flight 761 (a fake number) to ATL departing from gate E4"

Which airline is actually flying this one? DL of course...

I believe AA has a code-share with China Eastern...thats what this sounds like...

As for the time of the flight, you got me there...

Max-
There is no EWR-ANC non-stop...There is a IAH-ANC flight quoted as 7 hrs. 5 mins, but I think NW MSP-ANC and UA's ORD-ANC are similarly long...

Alaska is not in the Continental lower 48! So MIA-LAX, BOS-SFO, MIA-SEA and so on are the big winners in that sence. Times vary.

I've decided not to argue without doing the research.

Honolulu, HI-Agana, Guam, US Territories
Flight time: 7 hrs. 30 min.
DC-10 series jet
Operated by CO Micronesia.

Houston, TX-Anchorage, AK
Flight time: 7 hrs. 05 min.
Operated by Continental Airlines.

Minneapolis, MN-Anchorage, AK
Flight time: 5 hrs. 46 min.
Operated by Northwest Airlines

Atlanta, GA-Honolulu, HI
Flight time: 9 hrs. 35 min.
767-400 jet
Operated by Delta Air Lines

These are the longest non-stops I could find within the 50 states, with the gold star going to Delta for ATL-HNL and a flight time of about 9.5 hours.

USAFHummer, you are probably right. However, another wierd thing is that it does not say "Operated by MU Affiliate" as it does for others, and there is no coresponding AA flight. I.E.:


7:00a MIA 9:10a LAX UA 732 777 0 5:10 Daily
Effective Jun 8
7:00a MIA 9:10a LAX NZ9322 777 0 5:10 Daily
Operated by NZ Affiliate
Effective Jun 8

As you can see, the NZ codeshare has a corresponding UA flight. The MU codeshare has no coressponding AA flight whatsoever and does not mention it is operated by an MU affiliate. OAG does list segments of one-stop flights:


11:00a MIA 1:50p JFK LY0202 738 0 2:50 ExTuFrSa

5:20p JFK 7:30p MIA AR1311 747 0 2:10 Th

This is very odd. MU does not fly to MIA. Anyone know thier website address?

USAFHummer, actually, Continental will begin seasonal nonstop service from Newark to Anchorage in June and
this flight will operate with a 757.

25 CAETravlr : The airport code for Honolulu is HNL. The flight from ATL - HNL is no longer nonstop. The itinerary on the website is misleading, it does not indicate
26 ContinentalEWR : One would think Delta would have ironed out the work rules issue on its new 767-400's and 777's before it put them in service. Everyone else seems to
27 Twaneedsnohelp : "COMAIR is going to cost Delta millions." Correct spelling: "Comair" kind regards russ
28 777gk : ILOVEA340, please explain to me the difference of a 737-800 and a 757 on EWR-SFO from a passenger's point of view. I've been dying to know why nobody
29 Tsully : I think a very, very long (all US) flight would be: Continental SJU (San Juan) -EWR-HNL-GUM (Agana, Guam). In fact, if you go to Continental's website
