Shortest Flight You Have Ever Been On?

Sun Dec 03, 2000 11:24 am

What is the shortest flight that you have ever been on? Please specify starting and ending location, airline, and time it took. My shortest flight was from Juneau, Alaska to Gustaveous, Alaska. I was on an Alaska Air 737-400. It took 7 1/2 minutes.

My shortest flight is from Ibiza (IBZ) to Palma de Mallorca (PMI) and I´ve flown it with many different planes and airlines (Aviaco F-27 and DC9-32, Air Nostrum F-50, Hapag-Lloyd B737-400 and A310-200 and Air Europa ATR 42) it takes about 20 minutes with jet and 30 with turboprop.

About 10 years ago I flew from Orlando to Tampa on a Delta flight. It was a 727. The flight lasted about 10 mins and we reached a maximum altitude of 8000 ft.

I was coming from Germany, so I flew FRA-MCO-TPA with Delta.

About 12 yearsI also flew an Amercia flight from Oakland to Sacramento. I think that flight was 12 mins. That flight one was an MD-80 I believe.

It was a interesting routing for American. They routed the aircraft DFW-OAK-SMF-DFW. So if you were flying to SMF from DFW, you had a short stop over in Oakland.

For me, the shortest flight I've been on has to be Atlanta to Nashville and back, on a Delta 757 and 727. Flight time was about 35 minutes.
