Does anyone think seasonal DTW-HNL service will return?

According to Great Circle Mapper, CCS-BEY is 5665nm and 6520mi. Was it a nonstop flight?
|Quoting Dc863 (Reply 30):|
My guess is that it stopped either in Lisbon, Madrid or Rome before going to Beirut.
|Quoting Stirling (Reply 28):|
When was it?
|Quoting Luisde8cd (Reply 33):|
During the 70s, maybe early 80s.

Quoting Ravel (Reply 14):
At some point the longest DC-10 flight was from Helsinki to Tokyo with Finnair's DC-10-30ER
That's right, and N345HC was also the commercial DC-10-30 with the highest MGTOW then.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I seem to remember NZ using the DC-10 between AKL and LGW with a stop in the pacific.

Polar route is stated to be 11,024 km, or 6,850 mi, covered in 13,5 hrs
|Quoting PPVRA (Reply 41):|
I'm pretty sure Varig flew GIG-GRU-JNB-BKK in the 80's with the -10s. That's 9062nm!
|Quoting Eilennaei (Reply 40):|
The AY -ER had double the extra fuel tank capacity than the earlier (pre-1982) -ERs, says my source.
|Quoting Kiwiandrew (Reply 37):|
in the mid-70s NZ used to operate AKL-HNL-LAX and then pass the a/c over to BA to operate LAX-LHR - it was an 'interchange' agreement - but not a codeshare and NZ could not advertise it as a through-plane service to LHR - it operated as two distinct flight numbers NZ AKL-HNL-LAX and BA LAX-LHR.
|Quoting Magyarorszag (Reply 43):|
As you said, Soviet Union air space was then closed to western airlines, thus forcing flight to Japan and Korea from Europe to pass through ANC. Probably
