The Longest

Fri Oct 26, 2007 12:31 am

I was thinking, what was the longest regular non chartered flight flown by a L1011 or 757?

Delta used to fly the L-1011 from SFO to FRA, a range of 5698 miles, and if they flew it also from LAX that would have been over 5800 miles. I don't know any other L-1011's that went further although I suppose there was. The 500 series was rated at a max of 6100nm.

Currently the longest 752 route is CO's EWR-TXL at 3980mi. However, NW operated a 2nd daily DTW-FRA for a short while on a 752, and that's 4161mi.

No clue about the L-1011's.

I know LT used to operate L-1011s on DUS-LAX. Still air distance between DUS and LAX is 4943 nm.
