My local airport now is LAX, but since it's already been mentioned I'll go with MNL. The longest route ex-MNL is MNL-YYZ, although this will be overtaken by MNL-JFK on October 28th.

MNL-YYZ is currently the 13th-longest flight in commercial service, while MNL-JFK will be the seventh-longest once it comes online.

Sydney has Sydney to Dallas on Qamtas, but Emirates has flown from Sydney to Stewart International Airport, a very long flight. 777F was used for that.

Otherwise we have Sydney Dubai which is fairly miserable in economy class, tolerable in business. We need faster planes to cut these travel times in half!

All the people I know in the UK have easy trips to mainland Europe compared to the daunting longhaul flying I face.

NUE: longest scheduled flight is NUE-DWC, operated by Condor Boeing 757-300 every Sunday during summer. Actually it's the first scheduled long range flight from NUE for more than 20 years.

Although there are still from time to time troop transporters from the US, currently mostly with Boeing 777.

The ancestral home would be CCU: Qatar Airways to/from Doha.
Home would be BOM: AI and UA's direct to EWR, but here's hoping DL show up from ATL...

From MCI it's obviously KEF. Not that impressive by any standard but having a non-stop flight to Europe is a big deal for Kansas City.

From SJO, here are the five longest nonstop flights (great circle distance):

IB SJO-MAD: 4,593 nm
BA SJO-LGW: 4,716 nm
AF SJO-CDG: 4,828 nm
KL SJO-AMS: 4,896 nm (seasonal)
LH SJO-FRA: 5,055 nm

DE also operates SJO-FRA and I believe also SJO-MUC, however those are one-stop flights, so they don't count for my list.

From ORF the longest scheduled commercial flight is DEN. Being a military town, we do get charter flights from far off places.

My home airport is split between Rockhampton (ROK) and Gold Coast (OOL).

Rockhampton's only real destination is Brisbane (BNE) - 321 miles away. IN the recent past, OOL (379 miles) was an option and - further back - SYD (729 miles).

Out of OOL, I'd guess it would be the flight to Tokyo Narita - 4479 miles. THough can't remember if that currently stops in Cairns or not.

Hometown airport is BDL (Hartford, CT/Springfield, MA).

I believe longest scheduled flight at this point would be EI BDL-DUB.

Other long flights (for BDL) would be UA BDL-SFO*, AA BDL-LAX* and WN BDL-LAS. *Not sure if these still exist.

Not sure if there are others (could be charters to the Caribbean)

From my home airport, it's seasonal YXU-YVR. However, I mostly take flights from YYZ, and someone already mentioned YYZ-MNL.

Longest passenger route is to Dublin Ireland on Aer Lingus, with the runners up being Los Angeles and San Francisco On American and United respectively.

Yes....all those flights exist. SFO and LAS are seasonal. Other long routes out of BDL are SJU on JetBlue, DEN on Southwest and United, and CUN on Delta. Lots of charters going to various other places.

Interesting comparisons, but after suffering through QR DOH-IAH in Y, I don't really care for these ultra-long flights anymore. In many cases there are more optimal routings for the human body that are available if your journey is not starting in (using my example) Doha. In this case I flew ATH-DOH-IAH, which is an absolutely stupid routing. You have to fly 4 hours the wrong direction to get to DOH. It would have been way shorter to fly though some hub in Western Europe, and much easier on the body.

The same would be true if you were flying one of those ULH routes from SIN and your city of origination was not SIN. Much better to use NRT or ICN as a transfer point, IMO.

In my case it's a long story though, due to external transportation factors beyond my control I had to buy a 1 way ticket back to the US for 2 people on 1 day's notice and QR was the cheapest. I would have much rather chosen BA/AA and gone through LHR but it was twice as expensive. Thusly the DOH-IAH suffer-fest was booked.
Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

I can't even tell what the longest flight is from JFK. There's so many long haul flights, but my guess is JFK-JNB on SA? I'm roughly equidistant from JFK and LGA, so from LGA it depends on whether you count the seasonal Saturday flights to places like BZN and PHX, then PHX would be the longest, but if you want to talk about daily flights, then it's DEN by default.

For JFK, currently JFK-HKG (8072mi) and JFK-CAN (8002mi) are both longer than JFK-JNB (Which is the 3rd longest at 7969mi). Once PR begin their non-stop flights to MNL at the end of the month, though, that will be the longest at 8520mi.

From my current "home" airport, DL's IND-CDG is easily the longest flight. After that I believe it's IND-SFO, which at 1943mi is less than half the distance of IND-CDG (4191mi).

Thanks. I totally forgot about JFK-HKG. Had no idea about JFK-CAN.

My hometown airport of SAN:

I have flown ZRH-SAN and BOS-SAN, and I came close with LAX-FRA (5045 nm versus 5075 nm from SAN), and I have done SAN-HNL (2271 versus 2325 from LIH), so I have flown two, come close on two (although for a while HNL-SAN was the farthest domestic), but not even close to either LHR or NRT.
