By widebody I mean like all the widebodies except the 767, althought I wouldn't mind knowing that route either. I know TAP has a LIS-OPO A340 service and Avensa has a LIS-OPO DC-10 service. that is 107 miles. Also, the shortest 767 I think is ORD-IND. Any others that you know of?
life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on

The shortest 767 route may well be the Delta Air Lines New York JFK - Philadelphia service DL139, continuing service in from Manchester, UK, altho on a different plane..... the plane goes from JFK - PHL and then back to JFK.....

Do you know if domestic customers flying JFK-PHL are allowed to board that 763 in JFK, or are only MAN-PHL passengers entitled to a 763 by themselves? I assume others are allowed to board if there is a change of plane.
I flew on an Air Canada 747-200 Toronto-Montreal back in 1998. It was full, with about 400 pax onboard. The flight was 45 minutes long. Took longer to board the plane, than the duration of the flight. Can you believe they served us a snack as well?
Now Air Canada flies the 762 and 763 on that route. Sometimes an A333 and A343 are used during certain times of the year. Air Canada's A333 from Ottawa to Montreal continues to Heathrow, so I don't know if domestic passengers are allowed on it.

In '96 I did my first flight in seat 1A on board a Garuda 742 from Jakarta to Denpasar (Bali). The flight was 45 minutes and virtually empty. I think this might be a contender for a regularly scheduled direct widebody flight (no onward connections).
