If you include ferry flights, I've witnessed a F50 do a 6+ hour leg.

(by witnessed, I mean that I was on the ground, working for that airline. I wasn't in the actual aircraft)

Well back in the old days the F7 which was the first dedicated intercontinental airliner flew from The Netherlands to Batavia in 1924.
In modern times it must be the F70 owned by the government of Kenya which is able to fly Nairobi - London non stop.

I think AA's longest Fokker 100 flight was ORD-SAT at 1,041 miles.

US used the F-100 on the MSY-PHL leg. It did not do PHL-MSY though.

What about the Maritme Patrol versions of the F27 and F50... I understood that they were able to fly up to 10 hours...

Has to be the SQ A345 SIN-EWR I guess. That's a long fokker of a flight.

How about the 7 day multihop Amsterdam - Batavia on the Fokker by KLM!  Smile
