Longest narrowbody is I believe AGP-JFK on the DL 752.

Probably not, although I could be wrong. By the end of cruise, if the calculations have been done properly, the aircraft should be within a degree or two of flying perfectly level. Unless the descent is unusually gradual, initial descent will be nose-down. You'll probably start to see a nose-high at...
