Topic says it all, has UA, AA, CI or BR ever tried that run non stop (I know both CI and BR send cargo 747s here almost daily) . It is 7457 miles according to the GC mapper, it is long, but doable. I have several friends that are going back and forth from there on business, so I wonder has it been tried and just not profitable enough. To me it seems like the plane could be filled, more of an issue whether profitably or best use of 2 planes.

Any thoughts

I wouldn't put money on it, but I'm pretty sure it hasn't been done yet. I know neither of the Taiwanese carriers has done it; UA would be the only US carrier to do it and I think it has not.

As to feasibility, it certainly is feasible, technically. The 77W (which BR has and CI has just ordered) can certainly reach ORD and back; CX flies 77Ws n/s from HKG and PR will soon fly 77Ws from MNL to YYZ.

PR already started non stop eastbound to YYZ in November of last year. 7th longest flight in the world.
