It would have to be JFK-NRT. If they still operate that route. It's 6,000 something miles.

The United data above is incorrect: ORD-PVG is their longest 777 route.

I know,Mls,I just was noting that UA also operates that route, too. The route to PVG is even longer than LAX-AKL that they used to operate.

ORD-PVG is their longest 777 route.

UA has never flown that route at all, let alone with a 777.

Soon AA's longest flight will be ORD-HKG, if they are still planning to operate that route. The next few routes in line behind JFK-AA), Japan">NRT are DFW-AA), Japan">NRT and ORD-AA), Japan">NRT for AA I believe, followed by LAX-LHR, or maybe SJC-AA), Japan">NRT.

Mileage wise, SJC-TPE was is/was not the longest 777 flight, DFW-KIX and JFK-NRT are longer.
