Longest: GIG - FRA, on LH 744 and later A343,
VASP GIG - BRU on MD-11 must have been about the same.

Longest: MAN-SIN (5917 nm) by SQ
Shortest: CGK-TKG (103 nm) by various airlines.

Correction: Now I remember that the MAN-SIN flight had 1 stop at AMS. My longest flight was LHR-SIN (5878 nm) by SQ.

Shortest
Pretty close between these two
MIA/FPO - 112 miles on EA
HNL/LIH - 110 miles on AQ and HA (737's, Dash 8-s, 717's)
MIA/FPO was special though as that flight and the return were my only times aboard an L-1011

Longest ORD/HNL - 4243 miles on UA 747 (twice)

Longest in duration: NRT-PDX-DTW-JFK - I believe this was 21.5 hours.
Longest in distance: NRT-PEK-JFK - about 8,150 miles.

Shortest duration *and* probably distance: PDX-SEA, 129 miles, about 20-25 minutes. And about half that time is just maneuvering for landing.
