I'd say for the A318 it would be JFK-LCY but don't quote me on that. It's the most obvious one I can see.

British Airways operate the 318 on the Business Class only route from LCY to JFK (stops at SNN outbound).

easyjet operate the 319 from MAN to SSH which is pretty far at 2556 miles

flyglobespan used to fly 737.800 transatlantic

In May 2011 Suncountry flew between LGW and MSP with a stopover at YQX on a 737.800

Interesting to see that Aer Lingus are evaluating flying the 737-9MAX/A320NEO transatlantic - flightglobal 02/12

All those services have ended. The last two were for LX ZRH-EWR and for KL AMS-IAH which were dropped within the past year. LX replaced the Privatair BBJ operation ZRH-EWR with their own daily A340-300 last March.

The Australian Goverment charters an A319 to fly from Hobart to Wilkins Runway, Casey Station, Antarctica and return. It lands on a 4000 m ice runway, and makes the return trip without uplifting fuel from Antarticia.

KLM occasionally flies a B737 from AMS to either DFW or IAH, or maybe even MMX. Having a tough time remembering which it was, but one of those three airports for sure.

And now I saw Viscount724's comment about AMS-IAH, so I guess that was the one of was thinking of.

YYT-LHR is only 2012 nm. AC has several A319 nonstop routes longer than that. A few examples:

YUL-SFO 2206 nm
YUL-LAX 2149 nm
YYZ-BGI 2106 nm
YYZ-CCS 2086 nm
YYZ-SJO 2030 nm

When it's nearly all premium class, I don't think it's a nightmare.  All Nippon ANA NH 943: DEC/11: NRT-FUK-BOM: J Cab (by abrelosojos May 29 2012 in Trip Reports)

A great report on ANA's "BusinessJet" operating NRT-FUK-BOM by member abrelosojos. He has flown around 50 premium flights and ranks this one as 3rd (if I remember correctly).
