If we're talking about schduled non-stops then possibly SVO-HKG LHR-MBJ or NBO-LHR

There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

Yes, this A310 had extra tanks and is now used by the German Luftwaffe.

HF used their A310-300 for flights from Germany (FRA I guess) to PUJ and POP some years ago.

Didn´t they have 3 of them ? At least they ordered 3.


But anyway, this topic has already been discussed.
Exceptions confirm the rule.

Yes they had. They did one flight from somewhere in Japan to SXF nonstop. It was in Aero International some months ago. I did not find the newspaper here at home. It said that this was the longest flight of an A310.

4748 miles each way!
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

I believe some of those flights were actually out of HAJ, not FRA.

Interflug did have three A310s, which all went to the Luftwaffe. Their registrations were DDR-ABA, DDR-ABB and DDR-ABC. After the re-unification, when Interflug continued to operate for a while, they were re-registered to D-AOAA, D-AOAB and D-AOBC and if I'm not mistaken, they were operated for a short time by DE or at least on behalf of DE.

S4 regularly flys LIS-PUJ and LIS-CUN not-stop, and TP flies LIS-CCS and OPO-CCS.

MEA used to fly their 310s all over the place whilst the 747s were out on lease.

IIRC ABJ-GRU was one of them, or perhaps it was DKR?

For a short while I believe they also used to fly the devils from Beirut all the way to Australia with about a million stops, Darwin being one of them.
