Your Longest Flight On A Regional Aircraft

Thu Jan 06, 2005 6:20 pm

Also what was your shortest flight on a "regular" airliner.

For me, it was 2.5 to 3 hours on a CRJ-200 from MGM to DFW, I believe headwinds played a factor.

3hrs from BDL-YYZ on an Air Ontario Dash 8. Headwinds and then a ground hold once in YYZ waiting for a gate to open. That wasn't much fun at all, even for me.

1. Don't forget DL CMH-CVG, about 50 min. scheduled, flown 9x a day, including 2x with 757s.

2. When did BA fly through LAX to SAN? I though the daily scheduled 744 that flew from 1998 to 2001 went through PHX...

Thanks,

NZ ATR72-500, WLG-HLZ return. Fligth to HLZ was 1 hour 5 mins and the return, one week later was also 1 hour 5 mins.

Regular airliner for me was from CHC-WLG last year. Flight time is 45 mins, but the flight was delayed for about 15 minutes and the B733 arrived in WLG on time.

777ER-did you hear about the WLG -CHC flight that took 22 minutes a couple months ago, apparantly it broke some sort of record. It was a 733 or a 320. (can't remember) and I read it in a Magazine at WLG airport.

I think I remember reading it. If I remember correctly severe winds in the aircrafts favor is the offender. I will try and get more information from some one who works at Wellington Airport Operations about it. Hopfully the person can tell me the flight number and the date.

Shortest Mainline = AUS-IAH (CO B753) 26min

Longest Regional = IAH-YYZ (COEX ERJ145XR) 4hr

And we wonder why the regional pilots complain about the disparities between services. I don't. And I don't even take sides in those arguments.  Big grin

Shortest Mainline: BA used to collect passengers for its YVR-LHR 747 flight by first flying SEA-YVR. I've been on that one at least twice. Even shorter (but smaller) was Alaska Airline's JNU-GST flight on a 737-700. I think flight time was 18 min.

Longest Regional: Pilgrim used to fly a F-27 from JFK to YOW. I can't remember the flight time, but it must have been 3+ hours. I suffered through that flight more times than I want to remember. In the early/mid 1980s Air Wisconsin offered ORD-HVN service on a BAe-146. This too was 3+ hours and I suffered through it once before vowing to never do that again.

Longest regional for me was CLE-HPN on CO ERJ-135. Spent close to two hours onboard.

Shortest mainline: SJU-STT on AA 757 about 28 minutes of flight

Both in the last four days;

Longest on a regional 57mins from DUB-PLH on an ATR42, or 1hr 58mins from PLH-MAN on a DHC8 including a stop in BRS.
Shortest on a mainline; 30 mins from MAN-DUB on an FR 732.

Shortest

18 mins on a BA 744 from LHR to Fairford.

Did a full power take off on the way home and was airborne within 1/3 of the runway.

My longest flight on a regional aircraft and shortest flight on a "regular" airliner both happen to be on the same route: YYZ-YOW.

Have flown on (at various times on both CP and AC) CRJ, A319, A320, 732, and even a 762.

Longest trip : MXP-HAM with a LH CRJ-100, 2h20
Shortest trip : MXP-ZRH with a LX ER4, about 40 mins, most of them over the fantastic scenario of the Swiss Alps.  Smile

MSN-HSV-MSN via CVG each way 3.5 hours each way. All on CRJ's.... of course, I don't know if it really counts because there was a stop on each flight.
