Longest Flight On MD82

Sat May 21, 2005 7:21 pm

Just Returned from Holiday to Egypt and was wondering how far a MD82 could fly as I flew Cairo to Rome which took nearly four hours with no IFE ! good old Alitalia.

The Aircraft I-DATD looked old and tired.

CAI-FCO took "nearly four hours"? How come? When I flew LHR-CAI-LHR (BA 744 machines) one leg took about 4 hours and the other about 4.5 hours! Unless you had a seriously strong tailwind (hmm) or were flying unusually slow (why?) then I would expect CAI-FCO to take 2 hours or so. When I fly AMS-CAI on 8th June, I expect that to take about 4 hours too.

I flew CPH-TLV with SK in 1998 using a MD-82. True, It was long...

Well, from the AIRCRAFT DATA & HISTORY section of this very website:

MD-81 - Max speed 925km/h (500kt), long range cruising speed 813km/h (440kt). Range with 155 passengers and reserves 2897km (1564nm).
MD-88 - Speeds same. Range with 155 passengers and reserves 4850km (2620nm).

Given that the MD-82 has a slightly higher takeoff weight, I'd guess the range would be around 2100nm.

My own personal longest haul was on an AA MD-82 LAX-BNA, which is 1797nm. And yes, thank God I had my Walkman with me to listen to music!!

Oooooh. Still, longer than I'd have expected.  Smile AZ is often the cheapest option on LON-CAI route. I was going to choose them (I actually really want the M80) but chose KL instead (M11 Big grin ). Anyway, I will stop hijacking your thread now.

In the 80-ties and early 90-ties Balair used to fly it's MD82 and the single MD83 on Zürich - Banjul and Zürich - Lomé, both with a fuel stop in Ghardaiha. We also did ZRH - Muscat with the MD83, this flight was routed trough Larnaca

In the same period Aero Lloyd was a frequent visitor to Mombasa with the MD80. As I understood this was with a fuel stop in Egypt, I think it was Assuan and I remember that once they couldn't take the passengers luggage on the way back otherwise they would have risked another fuel stop.

I also remember in late 1987 as Trans Swede flew with the MD80 for a Scandinavian Tour operator from Scandinavia via ?? to FLL.

My personal nonstop record on board a MD80 was in December 1988 on a ferry flight from Teheran to Zürich.

Unless you are seated in about the last 4-6 rows of the MD80, I truly don't understand why everyone hates flying MD80s much!

Granted, if you are unlucky enough to be seated right next to the engine, than you might as well shoot yourself. Maybe I'm alone on this, but I have found pretty much any place else on that plane to be very comfortable, sometimes more so than 737s or A320s. I have flown a lot of MD80s and I actually find them to be some of the most comfortable flights, especially if you are seated in F or the front of Y. Up there, they are among the quietest cabins I have ever encountered.

I absolutely do agree! I still prefer the MD80 over the 737 and the A320 when seated let's say overwing and forward.

Airtours International regularly flew their MD83s on charter flights from Newcastle and Manchester to Tenerife and Fuerteventura non-stop and with a full compliment of passengers and baggage.

They also used the MD83 in the 90s on winter flights from Manchester to Banjul with a refueling stop in Tenerife. This was before the airline had any other aircraft with the required non-stop capability.

AA is pulling the 737s out of ORD, so the MD-80 series will be flying out of ORD to SEA, PDX, SFO, LAX, and SAN. I think all westbound flights are timed over 4 hours.

If my calculations are correct, ORD-SFO is just over 1600 nm.

Swiss was cheaper than AZ on the LHR-CAI-LHR routing. I'm flying Swiss (LHR-ZRH-CAI-ZRH-LHR) this summer and paid 240GBP. AZ is pretty cheap too on the route, but wasn't as cheap as Swiss. Swiss even offers the A340 from ZRH to CAI. I can't wait !! Swiss is a nice change from AZ, but I have to admit I love the AZ safety demo videos.

Hence why I said 'often.'  

LX does, indeed, normally offer good fares from LHR (as does OA), but its connections leave a lot to be desired - like 45 minutes in ZRH outbound (the return leg has 1 hour 25 mins in ZRH, which is fine).

I paid £242.10 for KL.

The Finnish seem to be quite tough in this regard. Finnair flies tourists to SE-Asia on 757s ...

The longest flight on a MD82 variant/successor could be a ferry flight of Hawaiian Airs 717s between Hawaii and the mainland. The even had to install additional ferry tanks to make that distance possible ...

2.5 hours is nothing. Sit in front of the wings and it will be one of the quietest flights you've ever been on.

I'm flying LAX-STL in August which is ~4 hours, shouldn't be too bad...

Alaska has four MD-83 aircraft that are fitted with long range tanks that they used to operate ANC-LAX (2346 miles). Now they operate the 737-700 on that route.

Two years ago I flew an JK MD83 on a charter flight from BCN to LKL. It took 4 hours and 45 minutes. It was a very nice flight, when we left BCN the sun had just set and as we flew northwards it started to slowly rise again.

I'd have flown WN but I'm not a big fan of unassigned seating, I'm in AAdvantage, and WN's routing would have had me going through PHX on the flight that I needed. I want to try WN but this isn't the trip to do so.

Back when TWA had STL-LAX it was usually a 757, in the later years at least. MD80s aren't bad planes, they just get a bad rep that they don't deserve.

It has enough range to transport you the 1160nm.
You should have flown Egyptair, the A330 does it 5 minutes quicker.

4 hours without IFE? You poor thing. Will you be filing a formal complaint? You may want to forward a copy to EU headquarters as well, they enjoy haggling with Alitalia, they're looking forward to your correspondence.

777STL-
Yes I am also AADVANTAGE which is why I fly AA 90% of the time. But most of my flights have been 757's out of STL (MCO, DFW, ORD-are places im usually going to) so its been awhile since iv flown an MD80 on a long duration (reffering to ORD-RSW). I also fly Southwest numerous times too, and the service with WN has me loving them better then AA's service. Since I am hearing impaired as I mention I use it as a thing to get me on pre boarding so the non-assigned boarding doesnt affect me so much haha. feel free to hit me up on AIM (in my profile) if you wanna chat from one STL flyer to another.

That is a great fare you got on KLM. What AC do they use/times of flights? Swiss does have daylight flights, which is good. When checking carriers most seemed to have flights arriving in the early am hours. Why is it that most flights arrive so early into Cairo? We were going to fly Aeroflot direct from the US (JFK-SVO-CAI) and the fare was $732 per person with all taxes included. Flying AA to LHR from BOS instead and spending time there before going on to Egypt and eventually the Red Sea.

I flew quite often between MXP (Milan-Malpensa, Italy) and SSH (Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt), and back of course, on a Eurofly's MD-82 which covers the 1858 miles distance with an almost 4-hour non-stop flight.

On another occasion, always while flying between MXP and SSH, the same MD-82 was making an en-route stop at AQJ (Aqaba, Jordan) on both legs (1802 miles, non stop from MXP).

SSH is a very popular resort destination, for the Italian market, on the southernmost tip of the Sinai, and the major resort area along the Red Sea Riviera.

For those interested in a great resort experience, I suggest trying the Four Seasons Resort Sharm-el-Sheikh. Simply the best in the region.

The Four Seasons in Cairo are nice too, both of them. Mena House in Giza is another amazing property that has to be seen to be believed. There is nothing like laying in bed at night and seeing the pyramids lit up.

The other side of the Red Sea is more peaceful than Sharm I've found. I'll also suggest the Moevenpick Resort in El Quseir and the Sheraton Miramar Resort in El Gouna (fairytale resort designed by Michael Graves... you can get a room for around $60 USD a night B&B).
