Well, this is an aviation forum, so most people here should know what narrowbody and widebody means. Besides that, between "big" and "small" there is term called "medium" and I'd consider a CRJ, an A220 or even a 757 each a medium and not a big aircraft. I also mentioned in my opening post, that I only asked for airliners. No bizjets, no general aviation. So no, I do not agree with you

I don't think a 777 is considered a narrowbody. Even then, I don't think the 777-300 has the range to fly that long of a flight. I'm guessing you meant the 777-300ER.

My longest narrowbody flight would be Brisbane-Perth on a QF B738.

I don't remember how long it was (I was 9) but it was really short. We were going to ZRH but we had come from JFK. For whatever reason, SR did a "milk run" through GVA.

SR usually operated JFK-GVA & JFK-ZRH both daily except Wednesday when there was just JFK-GVA-ZRH.
