Hey Neil....The "shortest widebody" must be the 747-SP..you know, the one SAA had.
Now, if you meant the shortest route, EA
flew tristars between MIA
at night as position moves for the morning originators. Time frame was mid 70's.
You are correct in your post. We covered this, but maybe the guys new..ok?
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.
