London Heathrow by far. It kept zigzaging forever. It thought I would never get to the plane. Someone made the comment we were walking to Dulles.

If i remember correctly, gate C in pheonix terminal 2. where you start walking, is at ground level, so we had to climb high [ well a few feet to the AC A319]. Also, going to an AA md-80 in YUL, but they have now changed gate area so its different.

It might not be the longest but in AA terminal at San Juan (SJU), PR seems quite long. Don't get me wrong it's an average lenght jetway, but when your on a AA flight comming from Hartford (BDL), CT were the temp. is like 10c to San Juan were the temp is 90c that short jetway in San Juan with no AC seems to go on for ever.

Mine was at IAH...I was boarding a 737-500 after being delayed 3 hours and switching termianls twice and aircraft three times (very bad storm)...It was in the international terminal..the jetway zigged up and down and did a full circle before i even saw the aircraft

The longest I have been on was LAX.
I was bording a United 737-300 at an end gate and we walkd all the way down this one hallway and finally it connected to the jetway.

Brussels, Belgium, in concourse B.
The passenger terminal is abnormaly high so you have to go down two long ramps to get to the jetway itself. Then the jetway was also considerably long, plus the fact we were getting on an A330 boarding through the second passenger door.

Buffalo/Niagara Intl. (the new buffalo). Delta gate 15 before they were done building the jetways. First we had to walk through a building then get on the jetway. It was pretty long.

Not really a jetway, but the covered walkway from gate A-5 at PDX, can be a long way if your plane is at spot 12...13....

the longest jetway i was in was at LHR in the BA T4 building..the longest jetway i've seen was a Schiphol...It was designed for the MD-11CF, the ones with the main deck cargo door in the forward fuselage....the jetway extended from the building over the wing to the very last door on the MD-11!

The one's at Boston Logan International Airport's Terminal E (the international terminal), because from the time you walk through the door you go downa stairway, then into a lobby where arriving passengers go to go to Customs, then you go down a very long Jet way, after that its no wonder people sleep on planes.

Tampa Airport Gate F76

I know over at Tampa Airport Gate F76(operated by American, first gate at Airside F) is a killer jetway! Half of the jetway is a covered walkway, then there is a ramp going downhill, then the actual jetway. I recommend you put on your walking shoes for this one.
