Delta Air Lines Top 50 Longest Routes

Here's the list for Delta, as of June 2018. I'm not too familiar with Delta's network and could easily have left a few out. Let me know if there are any corrections!

Cool list. #9 is gone soon but you’ll have MSP-ICN and SEA-KIX to add.

And when BOM comes online next year, it will either be #1 (if from ATL) or #2 (if from JFK)

Great list. I'm keeping it online. How about updating it from time to time? And as others have requested, how about the same 50 longest routes for UA and AA?

DL flies it for the Christmas peak. Late December/early January.

Thanks for the correction. That should take the #13 spot and bump ATL-BRU off the list.

Those are winter seasonal routes. This list of flights is solely for flights operating during June 2018. I included summer seasonal flights because I believe this provides the best indication of an airline's peak operation.

Thank you very much. Just out of curiosity, could you tell us how one compiles such a list? Not to divulge any secrets, but just the general method. I hope it wasn't done by manually going over every route DL or UA fly. Looking forward to the AA list, and then to compare all three lists. Thanks again.

I actually interned at United's network planning and scheduling department, so that list was not that hard to put together. I had a general idea of what their longest flights were.

DL's list was more difficult. I help some friends book tickets from the US to Asia, so I knew the transpacific routes of the US3 well. For European and South American routes, I went to DL's website and just used their interactive route map to find the intercontinental flights they flew from each hub. Punch those routes into the great circle mapper, then order from greatest to least. Hence the disclaimer that I could have left a few out.
