Actually, the 345 and 346 haven't been delivered neither.
So, today the A340-200 has the longest range, 8000 Nm or 14 800 km.

If you're talking about any aircraft, not just airliners, the answer is the Rutan Voyager, which flew non-stop around the world without refueling in 1986.

The 777ER (if we're talking about the same plane) is already in service. It was first designated as the 777-200IGW (increased gross weight) but it's now called the 777-200ER. The LR has a greater range, but it's not in service, yet.

According to this recent Airbus press statement, the range of the A340-500 is now 16,000KM/8650NM. Even so, the B772LR is still the longest ranged airliner by a good margin.

KHALIFA AIRWAYS SELECTS AIRBUS AIRCRAFT FOR FLEET EXPANSION
22 March 2001

To cope with its remarkable growth, Algiers-based Khalifa Airways will acquire 18 latest generation Airbus aircraft, including the new ultra-long range A340-500, which can fly further than any other planned or in-service airliner. The deal covers three four-engine A340-500s, five widebody twin-engine A330-200s and ten single-aisle A320s. Deliveries of all these aircraft are scheduled to begin in 2004. Khalifa Airways will start incorporating the A320 in its fleet as early as next month with two leased aircraft.

In less than two years of commercial activity, which began with the entry into service of its first aircraft, an Airbus A310 - since joined by six other widebody twins of this type - Khalifa Airways has demonstrated phenomenal drive, and been rewarded with success upon success in terms of load factors, passengers satisfaction, operational efficiency and profitablity. With professionalism and business acumen that is proving equal to the task, the airline founded in August 1999 by its current Chairman Rafik Abdelmoumen Khelifa, is determined to become one of the major air transport actors in the Mediterranean region. Thanks to this new fleet expansion, Khalifa Airways will not only increase its domestic and regional services but also launch long-range operations.

The unmatched degree of commonality among Airbus aircraft, in terms of airframes, on-board systems, cockpits and handling characteristics, was the deciding factor in Khalifa Airways' choice. This unique feature provides Airbus operators with greater operational flexibility and substantially reduced operational and training costs. Coupled with the remarkable levels of passenger comfort on Airbus aircraft, this enables airlines to offer even higher standards of services.

The ultra long range A340-500 which can carry 313 passengers in a standard three-class configuration over distances of up to 16,000 km/8,650nm is capable of flying non stop distances such as Algiers to Perth. The medium to long haul A330-200 can transport 253 passengers over distances of up to 12,300km/6,650nm, and is thus capable of linking Algiers with Los Angeles or Tokyo. With a range up to 5,500 km/3,000 nm, the 150-seater A320 can fly from major Algerian cities to destinations such as Kuwait or Moscow. Airbus’ A320 Family, comprised of the A318, the A319, A320, and the A321 has won some 2,700 orders to date, making it the industry's most successful aircraft family ever. With almost 700 orders, the versatile widebody A330/A340 Family is the undisputed market leader in the 239-380 seat category.

The A340-8000 (-200) is the airliner with the longest range, 8000nm, but none are operated. The 777-200ER, with a range of 7700nm, is the longest ranged airliner in service. 747-400 and A340-300 are runners up. When the A340-500 comes out in a year or so, it will have the longest range, at 8500nm. When the 777-200LR comes out in 2004, it will be the longest ranged airliner, with a range of 8895nm.

Of all aircraft in service in the world...the KC-10A, with a range of 9990nm. All fuel tanks in the aircraft are tied together, so when used for cargo missons (no fuel offload/tanker operations), the range can be enormus.

I don't know if this is true, but some where I read that An-225 when unloaded has a range of 17000km!

I have a hard time believing that since the plane when loaded must stop like 2-3 times just to make it to the usa.
