WN probably has one flight # with quite a few stops. I wouldnt even know where to begin to look for info like that though.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think Continental Micronesia's Island Hopper 956/957 is, with 5 stops (Honolulu - Majuro - Kwajalein - Kosrae - Pohnpei - Chuuk/Truk - Guam).

BA used to fly Manchester - Hongkong via Munich, Dubai and Bangkok I think using L1011 equipment about 10 - 15 years ago.

Not bad to say most airlines from LHR used to operate to Hongkong non-stop.

Maybe a LIAT flight might be the answer. They have some which route thus -San Juan - Tortola - St. Kitts - Antigua - Dominica - St. Lucia - St. Vincent - Grenada - Port of Spain. There are others linking other destinations so one of theirs may hold the record.

Currently prominent routes that need a lot of stops are :

1. MAS's flights to EZE via 2 South African cities...no wonder they lose so much $$$ on this route...why would they fly via JNB and CPT to EZE, cant they stick to one or the other???

2. Cathay Pacific : HKG-BKK-BOM-DXB 4 times a week using B 777-300 used to be B 747-300.

3. I have personally flown PIA in June 92 KHI-LHE-IST-FRA-JFK-YYZ on a B 742.

4. BIMAN : DAC-DEL-BRU-JFK DC 10-30ERs...there are a few more BG routes esp to Europe that have multiple stops enroute.
