World's Shortest Flight On A 757

Thu Apr 19, 2007 9:08 am

Well, someone recently repeated the "Longest flight on a 757" post - so I thought I'd shake things up  Wink

Here's my entry:

Today - IWA (Phoenix/Mesa)--PHX - Distance = 22 miles AMT 7012 dep 1445 - arr 1450 B752

Is the flight listed above a regularly scheduled flight?

NW operates NWA800 from OGG to HNL (that continues to ANC). Flight time is normally 20~25 mins.

As recently as last year, US was running a 757 once a day between BWI-PHL (70-90 miles). I think now the biggest they operate is a 734.

Delta used to operate a 757 between CMH and CVG, about an hour and a half drive. Now it is a mix of regional aircraft B737s and MD88s.

Keeping the TZ theme, MDW-ORD on a ferry flight. We covered another airlines trip to MBJ when they damaged their nose gear. I met the plane at ORD and didn't get to ride, but ranks right on up, erg, down there.

As much charter, positioning, & ferrying that TZ does, they probably have some of the shortest and longest 757-200/-300 flights around. Just by using my own deductive/educated reasoning. I am sure there are some other airlines that rank the same, but still, TZ is great!

While I know it's not the shortest, AA has a daily 757 flight from TUL-DFW. That's probably about a 30 min flight depending on which runways at both airports are used and local area traffic.

The shortest scheduled flights in the US on B757s are mostly UPS.

In the running are:

UPS403 MIA-FLL 12mins
UPS380/390 PBI-MIA 19mins
UPS1467 SBN-FWA 19mins

Pax:

St.Thomas - San Juan on UA and AA. 19mins.

I believe back in the day DL and Eastern had quick hops on 757s between FLL and MIA. Usually the beginning or ending
segments from flights that originated in BOS, JFK and BWI.

Let's talk about SCHEDULED pax flights. DL used to have a flight that went DFW-FLL-PBI. I took it. The FLL-PBI tag was way, way fun. The plane was virtually empty of pax, and the leg a short one, so performance was absolutely incredible.

BA used ti use the 752 on the MAN-LHR route with a flying time of 25 minutes on the BA Shuttle services and they were always full, sadly this season all 752 were replaced with A321's on domestic services

I know its not a 752 but ET fly a 763 from FIH to BZV as part of the ADD-FIH-BZV-ADD Service and that has a flying time of approx 5-7mins with a distance of 14miles and its a regular scheduled passenger service!! LOL!!

It's simply absurd but I guess we'll come at it from a UK point of view where we're used to having to be at an airport 3 hours before a flight etc if you could just arrive and walk onto the plane that might be a bit less of a hassle.

BA still operate the 757 on LHR-MAN flights. Several flights throughout the day and also each night the 757 does the nightstopping service at MAN. The A321 will not replace the 757 on this route until the move to T5, when the 757's become T3 based.

Can't remember if it was a 757 or 737 but United used to fly from OAK-SFO, it was wicked watching that thing just do a constant right turn then touch down in SFO. To the folks that weren't used to seeing it, you would think it was going to crash in the bay but that flight could not have been more than a couple of minutes long.

Eastern used the L1011 between Buffalo and Toronto...a long drive around the western tip of Lake Ontario, but very short point-to-point. I remember reading in an aviation magazine that, from time to time, pilots wouldn't bother retracting the gear on that flight.

In the past (1990s) UA would sometimes use a 757 for the 50 nm Denver Stapleton - Colorado Springs run. The normal equipment for that flight was 737-200 (which I flew a few times). I also saw them use a DC-10 on rare ocassions. II rwmmwbr a quick climb to 12,000' MSL and before I knew it it, I are on the ground again. I think it took under 15 minutes.

flying a DC8 from SFO-OAK.

I used to fly COS-DEN (Stapleton) and onward frequently but never on a -10. 727's, Frontier 737's, Rocky Mountain

I've taken that US flight between PHL and BWI. You take off, then 4 minutes in you hear the captain say that we've reached our crusing altitude of 10,000 ft. 1 minute later he comes back on and says that we are starting our descent. 4 or 5 minutes later you're on the ground. 9 or 10 minutes total flying time. (I think that it's scheduled as 10 minutes.)
It's weird I tell you, especially when virtually every seat is filled.
