Re: What's the environmental impact of standby staff air travel?

That might be true for point to point flying, but the reason four aircraft are scheduled is because someone assessed that the frequency matters.

Re: What nonstop TATL and TPAC flights are the longest over the actual Atlantic/Pacific?

LAX/MEL usually crosses the Australian coast around Wollongong south of SYD, so normally not much further than LAX/SYD overwater. YVR-SYD is almost entirely overwater at 12484 km, 7757 miles and 6741nm. That is probably the winner for TPAC. Also, I did not consider DFW-SYD. While most days it veere...

For the Pacific, it’s probably EZE/SCL-AKL/SYD, no? There were reasons why it was a 4 engine route for so long - so, yes. If proximity to islands does not count, it looks like LAX-MEL takes the prize. LAX-SYD is —excepting for literally less than half a mile— entirely over water, but by GC reckonin...
