Long 737Ngx And A320 Flights?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone suggest any real world scheduled (or known charter) routes for the 737NG or A320s that are at the upper limit of the aircraft's range? ....... In other words 5+ hour flights in the 737 or A320 ?

 

I'd prefer in or out of Europe, but if not anywhere would be great.

 

Tks.

Copa Airlines flies the 737-800 with winglets non-stop from Panama to Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo and Santiago de Chile.

 

The Panama - Buenos Aires flight is 7h 20m long and I imagine the aircraft is flying on fuel fumes by the time it lands.

 

EDIT: As a matter of fact, I have a few friends flying the NG for Copa Airlines, and they do refueling stops in Colombia when they find strong headwinds on the return leg (EZE-PTY).

 I'm sure Thomson, SAS, Air Berlin and Norwegian just to name a few have hundreds of different pairings that fit your request. Check flightradar24 and find one to your liking.

These links show the currently flying aircraft ordered in descending order by flight time. There are a few glitches, like the ones that say the flight is 22 hours long.

737 deliveries out of KBFI. For example, Norwegian flies their new birds nonstop BFI-Oslo...9 hours.

Many thanks for all the suggestions offered!

 

I have some great inspiration for some long flights in the NGX and AXE now.

Koohejie - Are you sure they operate the A320 to Heathrow?  Long gone are the GF glory day's :/    

 

Btw, do you  operate the A320/330 with GF?  Just wondering if you are the same Kooheji I met up with last year.

 

Cheers
