Range Of 767-300er

Is it possible for the 767-300ER to fly from say, LAX or SFO to HKG or NRT?

They can fly pretty far Transatlantic. Delta uses them for all but maybe 5 transatlantic routes (Delta is the biggest airline US-Europe). Their longest 767-300ER route is JFK-Istanbul. Their longest European route is ATL-IST (MD-11). The longest route in the Delta network is ATL-NRT (MD-11).

They have a long range. Canadian uses them on their Toronto-Tokyo route. Air Canada used to use the same aircraft, now they use the a340.

The B767-300ER once broke a world record by flying from Seattle to Nairobi, Kenya non-stop. I would think that it would be capable of flying transpacific routes from LAX or SFO

Being 180 minutes ETOPS rated, the 767-300ER could fly nonstop from SFO to NRT with maximum fuel but I'm not sure it could do it with a full load of passengers and/or cargo. The 200ER has a range of over 6000NM with maximum fuel.

THe aircraft's range can be enhanced so that they have the range to fly transpac routes without problem. AA proposed adding additional fuel bladders in the cargo compartments to allow DFW/SJC/SEA-NRT flights before the airline ordered 777s. A private 762, operated by MidEast Jet uses this system. I believe its range nears 9000 miles! Of course this is a highly modified a/c, and is not used for revene pax flights. TWA has also proposed using 767-200s for STL-NRT. Many of AA's 767 routes exceed 5000 miles.

767-300ER's fly a number of routes that are longer than LAX-NRT, such as JFK-Cairo, Paris-Rio, Paris-LAX. Longest one I know of is Milan-SFO at 9570 km, compared to 8772 km for LAX-NRT.
But none of these routes compares with LAX-HKG.

UPS will be flying a 767-34erf from Beijing China to Anchorage Alaska then to Atlanta delivering Panda bears at the end of September. 767's are used quite a bit on trans Pac and trans Atlantic routes like SDF to EDDK.

Carrying 55 tons of payload, UPS's version of the 767F has a range of 3,000 nautical miles, or 4,000 nautical miles with a payload of 45 tons.

A 767F carries up to 24,140 gallons of fuel.

Maximum takeoff weight capability for UPS's version of the 767F is 408,000 pounds.

Each of the 767F's two GE CF6-80C2 engines produce 60,000-pounds of thrust.

The 767F cruises at approximately 0.80 Mach, or 530 mph.
