Longest nonstop, you mean?

And you have to decide whether you're including those transatlantic BBJs (or whatever they are).

Ignoring BBJs, I believe it's PTY-EZE, which clocks in at 5331 km.

It's most likely to be KL's AMS-IAH, which is 5012 miles. Its operated by a Boeing 737-700 from Privatair with a all business class layout.

Hi!

I don't know if this is the longest but I logged 5:45 minutes flying from EWR to BOG on CO 737-700.

Air Pacific flight FJ821

YVR-HNL 6:00
HNL-NAN 6:45

737-700

Believe it's at least in the top 5.

If you exclude BBJs with extra tanks, the longest nonstop 737 route is COPA PTY-MVD. That's 2941 naut. mi, vs 2879 PTY-EZE. 737-700 used on both those routes. Air Pacific's HNL-NAN 737-800 nonstop may be 3rd longest at 2748 naut. mi.

PrivatAir's BBJ (737-700) operated for KL AMS-IAH is definitely the longest scheduled 737 route if you include the BBJ at 4356 naut. mi.

FJ operate a seasonal route from Nadi in Fiji to Vancouver in Canada totalling 9,443 km or 5,868 miles (return obviously).

- NAN - HNL 5,089 km / 3,162 mi
- HNL - YVR 4,354 km / 2,705 mi

But pretty soon, for a single leg or non-stop route, it will be NH with their new 737-700ER's - NRT to BOM I believe, 6,796 km / 4,223 mi and crossing the Himalayas or considerably longer going round them.



I don't think one can really count a Privatair charter whether it's a scheduled service or not as they're really BBJ's - IMHO of course.

...And people complain about 757's from EWR-TXL!
The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

Thanks guys I wasn't aware that the 737 was clocking up so many miles

Quoting ANCFlyer (Reply 6):

Gee thanks, were already deep into the discussion though.

I did a search when I wrote the topic so that obviously isn't doing its job properly.


I really don't see a point in sarcastic comments for a friendly enquiry between enthusiasts.

COPA's PTY-MVD and PTY-EZE nonstops are longer than both of those.
P.S. Best to use nautical miles to keep things consistent since that's the more usual operational unit.

I'm not sure where FJ stands re the NAN-HNL-YVR route as they had previously anounced they were dropping the HNL-YVR sector and would be codesharing with Canadian carrier Harmony Airways. Within a month of that announcement, Harmony announced that they were suspending service and their last flights were about a week ago. I haven't seen anything from FJ indicating whether they will now be continuing to operate to YVR or only to HNL.

Well, it took a bit for the search, almost two minutes, I opened your thread with ZERO replies.

And by the by, what I made was a point, not sarcasm. Had it been sarcasm, I'd have done this  sarcastic .

Well if FR has any problems with their 787's (or others) when flying to the US you may just see a couple of them waiting for you !

Happy Flying
