HP SNA-PHX in their Team Work Coast to Coast livery (this is where the 757 is just a beast!)
AA OGG-PHX (overnight flight so thankful for the exit row)

Duration wise, in December a few years back flew EWR-SFO and with headwinds this was running around 7 hours

Shortest (and I might poach the record here so far?) PVK - EFL at 50nm as the crow flies! Was an interesting one. I was working with a tour operator at the time and due to fly PVK-LGW but our flight was sold out. So - they diverted our LGW-EFL to pick us up - we were the only 3 pax onboard! I think it was the last outbound of the season so rocketed out for the 15 minute trip. Bit hazy now as it was 20 years ago - Air 2000.
Longest DLM-MAN on a TCX 752 at just 1882 nm.

Being from this side of the pond, I didn't have much opportunity to fly the 757.

My longest and potentially only 757 flight would be JFK-MAD on AA.
When I was very young I flew on AA SJU-JFK and CO SFO-EWR and I suspect that those might've been 757s but unfortunately I can't be sure about that.

SDF-ATL on a DL 757-300 the day after the Kentucky Derby.

DFW-ANC on an AA 757-200, that was in the year 2000, some time ago, I was 10 years old! One of the earlier flights I remember, I remember we had a 1 hour delay due to a flat tire and they played I Love Lucy Episodes while sitting at the gate. Landing to ANC was impressive, and so was the sunlight at 10:00 P.M.

Flown AA's CDG-JFK but because of headwinds it got diverted to BGR ... I think I spent something like 9 hours inside the tube. The shortest might've been the hop from BGR back to JFK.

Yes, the 757 is very popular on A.net for good reason. It's magnificent. Not only to fly on, but to work on as well. Oh, and I think I'll take this opportunity to say that the A321 will NEVER be a 757 replacement!

I've flown on three round-trips aboard both variants of the 757 within a span of 7 years; between 2006-2013.

My shortest 757 flight was on one of Arkia Israeli Airlines' two Boeing 753s; specifically 4X-BAW from TLV-ETH in June 2013. The direct routing according to the Great Circle Mapper is 169 statute miles but in actuality it was a bit longer than that as the plane headed for ESE for the Dead Sea before turning SSW towards Eilat. All in all it was a 37-minute flight both ways. The funny thing was that I wasn't even originally scheduled to fly on a 753 but rather one of Arkia's ATR 72-500s. Guess there were more than enough passengers to warrant the upgrade.

My longest 757 flight on the other hand was my first. I flew with the now-defunct charter airline Skyservice from YYZ-AUA - a distance of 2,222 miles - in June 2006 on a 752. The flight cleared the gate early enough that it actually had to be held after pushback for about 10 minutes as the airport was still officially under an overnight curfew until just after 6 am. I'll never forget just how sharp the takeoff was, and as such is arguably the main reason I seek to fly on them again in the future. Perhaps a trip with Icelandair will be in the cards.

In between, I did fly with another Skyservice 752 round-trip from YYZ-PUJ (1,850 miles) in November 2009; just 5 months before the airline folded.

The shortest: Bergen - Stavanger
The longest: Keflavik - Geneva

I have heard that last winter Icelandair loftleidir boeing 757 operated to Antartica from Punta Arenas and landed in snow. I think this year they are planning the same... but very very expensive flights.... If you can afford it, It would be a great experience..... taking off like a rocket in the ice...

I hope Icelandair keeps the boeing 757 for many more years...but I think next year with the arrival of the new boeing 737, the shortest route from BGO-SVG will dissapear from the boeing 757 network

That ride on the LUS 757 was not the most enjoy able, they need a bit of TLC. But the flight was farily open so it wasnt a huge deal

I was gonna say... I knew they used the DC-9 on that route in the past, but the 757? Then I read the rest of the sentence.

My shortest was a positioning sector from SXF to TXL - 16 miles. A/C was unable to get into TXL the night before and diverted to SXF. We took it back to TXL and on to LHR the next morning. Longest is a relatively boring KEF-YYZ with spectacular views of Greenland.

Longest? IAH-SEA-ANC on CO. Each individual segment was shorter than LAX-ATL, but overall, it was 3,322 mi. It was the same aircraft and flight number, I don't know if that counts.

My shortest and longest 757 flights were the same flight number, same day.

LAX-TPA 2,158 miles
TPA-PBI 174 miles

Red-eye on the first leg, short stop in TPA and insanely short cross-state flight to finish it up.
