https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longest_flights

Wikipedia publishes a really interesting article that includes a section about the longest flight by aircraft type. The current longest route by the 777-200ER is UA179 Newark - Hong Kong, 7010nm/12980km.

I would have thought EWR-HKG would be 77W by now.

This doesn't answer the question, LOL, but historically, HKG -> LHR (westbound over North America), ha ha!

Oh wait, scratch that, that was the 77L.

I can't match the longest route but once flew Shanghai to Marseille on an AF 772 during the ash cloud fiasco. Routed really far South over the Middle East and then headed North into France. Touched 15 hours with barely any catering on board. Truly memorable flight.

The 777 had been on the tarmac in China for days originally intending to return to Paris. Eventually a window in the cloud allowed an attempt to Marseille instead. Throughout the journey, we didn't know for certain where we would land.

Long flight.

It went Eastbound.

AA had a flight from Chicago to New Delhi until 2011 nonstop with a 777-200ER which had to be among the longest.
