Shortest widebody flight: Air India 747 LHR-FRA

Longest narrowbody flight: Pan Am 707 JFK-FRA

Both flights occurred during the late seventies when I was a kid. The Air India flight was JFK-LHR-FRA. My sister was working for Air India in Frankfurt and she got two free tickets for my mom and me.

Hi,

Sorry this is maybe a little late and I have yet to read this whole thread but maybe just my 2 cents from memory before I try to do that (sorry!).

1. For shortest flight it was probably a British Airways Boeing 767 on a day trip from London Heathrow to Nice around 2010. I guess it's probably not that unusual or short but still on that morning flight out I was quite surprised but also kind of happy for that view over the big wing and lots of room in economy(!)

2. Again probably not exceptional really but my longest on a narrowbody might have been a transcontinental USA flight on a Boeing 757 back in the 90's. But at that time I honestly didn't know a 757 from a 767 to my shame... Or maybe more likely it might just have been London to Rhodes or Tunisia later on with package holidays from the UK on probably Boeing or Airbus series (737/320).

Anyway sorry if that didn't come out that well but hopefully it was not too bad and many thanks though for asking and letting me trip down memory lane for a bit(!) (sorry again!),

Many thanks,

Ps762

Shortest widebody flights were MCO-FLL on a UA DC-10. Longest narrowbody was likely PHL-LAX on a UA A319.

KIX-NRT on JL 747 HD. Was too young to remember the flight, my dad thought we scored J class when we were assigned upper deck seats.

YVR-HNL on WS 737-700. Nothing special other than a really long flight.

Both flights for me were in North America.

Shortest flight in a widebody was with AC on a 767-300ER in 2010, was from YVR to YYZ.

Longest flight on a narrowbody was with UA in 2015 on a 737-800/900 (not sure) from SAN to IAD.

Shortest Widebody : Emirates B773 (DXB-BOM)
Longest narrowbody : Jet Airways B738 (CCU-BOM)

At this point in time, my shortest Widebody flight narrowly beats out my longest narrowbody one by around 100 miles.

I won't win any awards for the longest narrowbody (probably BOS-SFO at 2,350NM).

However, on shortest widebody... DUB-SNN - 105NM on an EI A330-300. Narrowbody (just for fun)... OAK-SFO - 10NM on a UA 727-200. This was a regular ORD-OAK-SFO daily. Also, SJC-OAK - 26NM on a PS 146. It was a daily SNA-SJC-OAK-SNA loop.

Shortest Widebody was EWR-DEN (old DEN) on CO (and the return flight).

Longest Narrowbody was an LAX-BWI flight on a WN 737-700 that took a long route due to delays (incoming flight an hour late due to a tech issue and then one passenger fell asleep and didn't get off at LAX, another got off before they counted through passengers, so once we boarded, the count was one too many until the sleepy girl woke up and realized she was in LA and needed to get off when they told everyone to get their IDs out) and weather issues (massive line of storms north/south over the mid-west like Ohio area forcing everything across the country to fly further south than normal) - From LAX followed the southern boarder basically over to El Paso, crossed Texas and flew over HOU, over MSY, over the Florida-Georgia line (not the band - unless they happened to be on the line at the time) before finally turning north like 3/4 the way across that line. Was in the air almost 6:15.

Shortest on a widebody is either ORD to DEN on 777-200, or ORD to DFW on 787-8 - approximately the same distance, slightly more than 800 miles. This is a common Sunday night flight for Chicago-based consultants leaving to work in Dallas for the week.

The longest on a narrowbody would probably be ORD to ANC on a 737, 2846 miles.
