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.

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.

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.

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...

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.
