I want to know which is the longest flights operated by both 757-200 and 767-200/300/400.

I think that the longest 757-200 flight is MX 1691 :CUN-EZE (about 8.5 hours)

As for 767 I think that Spainair uses it for the MAD-EZE route (13 hours) and I think that UA use them for a while for their HKG operations, I don´t know if UA flew 767 from LAX to HKG because I think the aircraft lacks of range to operate that route.

As for 777 I think is CO : EWR-HKG route

Glasgow - Orlando and Gatwick -Goa are long flights which were at one time operated by 757's. Although with a stop I think. Some of the GLA - Toronto flights operated by 757's must be long flights too.

Ethiopian used to operate BOM-BJS with 757s back in the early 90s. With the airspace restrictions, that could run well over 9 hrs on a bad day.

Icelandair does not fly Miami-Kevlavik. They do fly Orlando-Kevlavik, I think. Finnair flies Miami (actually, Fort Lauderdale)-Helsinki with a 757-200, but with a stop in Bangor, Maine. One of the longest 752 routes is AA's Miami-La Paz (Bolivia) which is about 7 hours. CUN-EZE is 8.55h, one long flight! I just find it wierd that MIA-EZE is 8.30h, though I'm sure equipment has something to do with it.

They did not really fly LAX to HKG non-stop, they are used for HKG-DEL as their round the world flight. I think CP have used it for Vancouver to Hong Kong in around 91/92. By the way, I think someone have a discussion about which is the longest route for 767, have a search.

Occasionally Uzbekistan Airways uses a B757 between Tashkent and London. I realise that's not as long as some of the suggestions, but how long does it take?

Prior to getting A330-200s
I think Canada 3000 did either
Vancouver and/or Calgary to London via Keflavik
with 757s.

I flew AMS to EWR in a CO 752 (8hrs. 15 min). I believe it is listed as 3,657 mi.

Well just for the distance I've made YVR-YYC-KEF-STR on CMM 757-200.
The longest nonstop sector was KEF-YYC at 06.20h.

Continental Airlines operates the Duesseldorf (DUS) - Newark (EWR) route with 757-200. Total Flight time is 08:45h. In November they will switch to 767-200.

2 summers ago I flew on a Air Transat 757 from Toronto to Glasgow. I think it was about a 7.5 hour flight.

What about the AC flight to Sydney on a 767-300ER.

I believe it starts in YYZ, then off to YVR to HNL to SYD.

Thats pretty darn long.

If you're not talking about non-stop flights, but flight number,
ROYAL BRUNEI used to operate FRA-DXB-BKK-BWN and
I think LHR-DXB-BKK-BWN with 757s, in the early 90s.
The flights still exist, but now with 763s.

Not strictly 757/767-related, I remember to have seen
Wardair Canada 727 C-FFUN in DUS several times on flights from Canada (not bad, eh ?!) , and if I'm not mistaken, Sterling
used to fly fly Caravelles all over the world. Maybe our
Danish / Swedish readers can contribute more details...

Best regards...Heinz

Air Canada 3127 YYZ-HNL-SYD has to be one of the longest...or Air Canada's YYZ-TLV which is also a 767, Elal also operates the 767 on this route but it is YYZ-JFK-TLV.

I believe that either Air Canada or Canadian flew from Vancouver to Sydeny. I don't think that they stopped, but I could be wrong. If it was non-stop, that was one hel of a long flight. By the way, that was on a 767.

Let's bring some order to this chaos!!!
First of all, i think that Ladeco's route SCL-MIA is quite long for a 757-200 (8 hours and a half) although Ladeco is now a domestic chilean carrier.
And for the 767, could be the SCL-JFK route(11 hours???) or the GRU-MAD route (12 hours) both operated by LanChile, but the GRU-MAD route does not exist anymore because now LanChile flies directly to MAD from SCL in A-340

I know before Canada 3000 got its A330's they used to operate a YYZ - YVR - HNL - Raratonga - SYD flight on a 757. I could have the stops mixed up but i know I was a really long trip, especially for a 757.

I wasn't aware of the CUN-EZE 757....The only one that I knew about that I think would be kind of long in a 757 is the CO flt from CLE-LGW. There could be longer ones though.

GRU-MAD is operated with 767s by Varig, wich also lands at MXP and FCO with these aircraft. I suppose the longest 767 flight is also with Varig GRU-LAX.

I took UA71 LAX-LIH in March. It was 6.5 hours with the headwinds 2,615 miles. This has to be one of the longest,at least as far as UA is concerned.

Champagne For My Real Friends,and Real Pain For My Sham Friends
25 AirafriqueDKR : I checked the mileage on flights that were suggested here, and these would be the longest (nonstop): CUN-EZE on Mexicana is a total of 4286 miles (757
26 Post contains images AY-MD11 : Finnair starts flying summer time to Toronto from Helsinki,Finland with a 757-200 nonstop that is pretty long flight! AY-MD11
27 GKirk : CO DUS-EWR would be pretty long. Thats operated by a 757 just now.
28 Post contains images HL : Air 2000 operate services from LGW-ANU (Antigua) with a 757 which is around 9hrs, JMC also do this. HL
29 RayChuang : I believe another very long 767-300ER flight was Aeroflot's SEA-SVO non-stop. I believe that is now flown by a 777-200ER, though.
30 NWA ARJ : Last summer when I flew from Las Angelas to Detroit. I flew on a NW 757 and it took about 8 hours for the trip. I also flew from Minneapolis to Orland
31 Critter_592 : NWA ARJ Where is Las Angelas?
32 TOMASKEMPNER : Mexicana # 1691 Cancun- Buenos Aires is the longest nonstop flight operated with 757-200 much longer than CLE-LGW, EWR-AMS, MCO-KEF, EWR-DUS. Spanair
33 SouthRebels : The 757 longest route is roughly 8 to 9 hours. Continental runs one CLE to LGW. United goes ORD to EZE with a 767-300, 13.5 hours.
34 United_Fan : I don't mean to be rude,but 8 hours LAX-DTW?? Did the pilot get lost??? Just wonderin'
35 747buff : Aeroflot runs LAX-SVO with a 763.
36 Rpwgw : I've flown Narita - Perth on a Qantas 767-300ER (QF 70). Restricted load meant a row of three seats!!! That flight takes 10hrs 15 minutes.
37 Aeromex : On a 767-200ER might be Aeromexico's daily MEX-CDG. More than 11hrs.
38 Post contains images Pilot3xx : i guess the longest flight on a 767 is Alitalia's Milan-Caracas route 15 hrs!!! correct me if im wrong
39 Chepos : The Alitalia Milan-Caracas flight I highly doubt is 15 hours. Chepos Puerto
40 El Al 001 : El Al used to fly TLV-ORD and TLV-HKG with 762. It also operated in the past a 757 to JNB via NAI and to JFK via LHR/STN.
41 Dutchjet : Present schedules may be different, but the MIA-SCL Ladeco flight was the longest nonstop 757 segment and the LAX-GRU was the longest 767 segment, I b
