United ORD-HKG

Quoting Ssides (Thread starter):
DL: ATL-NRT (?)

DL now operates JFK-BOM which is longer.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Air New Zealand's is now AKL-LHR.

This is the route via HKG btw. If you are talking about non stop service then it would be AKL-SFO

El Al's longest route is the TLV-LAX route, using B777-258ER. In the 1960s LY's JFK-TLV route (operated my B707-458) used to be the longest route in the world.

Arkia's longest route (operated only 3 months every year) is TLV-SSA via LPA.

Israir's longest route is TLV-JFK

Not true. OS's longest route is actualy VIE-KUL-SYD which will be sadly dropped. (777-200ER)

LAN's longest route is SCL-MAD-FRA with the A340-300.

TAM's longest route is GRU-MXP which will soon be introduced. Currently it is GRU-LHR. (Both with A332)

Avianca's longest route is BOG-MAD with the 767.

SAA's longest route is IAD-JNB non-stop with the A340-600.

Wrong. NZ's longest non stop flight is Hong Kong to Heathow which takes 13 hours and 20 mins.

Quoting Gemuser (Reply 15):
QF SYD-SIN-LHR 9274 nm

Their longest non stop route is MEL-LAX.

Also :

Air Tahiti Nui's longest non stop route is CDG-JFK
Air Pacific's longest non stop route is NAN-LAX
Air Vanuatu's longest non stop route is VLI-SYD

Actually untill they dropped AKL back in the 80's, that was their longest route. They also used to serve CHC but that was a while back.

Yes. I regard the sector, KUL-TPE-LAX as a direct route, forgeting the fact that TPE-LAX is a non stop service and it is longer than KUL-LHR. Thank you for correcting me.

There is one other seasonal and one other non-seasonal F9 route that is longer than DEN-FLL:

SLC-CUN @ 2005nm
SAN-CUN @ 2028nm (seasonal)
It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

From the BSL point of view:

Hello (HW/FHE) does regularly (though not year-round) fly BSL-Dakar.

easyJet Switzerland (DS/EZS) flies 4x weekly BSL-Istanbul/SAW.

Both are the respective longest routes for their companies.
