It formerly was the DL flight JFK to PSA...but that was discontinued. According to Wiki the RDU-CDG is now the longest 757 flight at 4052 miles.

FRA-CLE is 11 miles longer and operated by Condor with a 757 in 1993.

Dont know where you see 10 hours, as flightaware shows most flights around 8.5h with longest just about 9h.

Longest flight I have been on a 757 is CDG-JFK. AFAIK, the longest passenger 757 routes have been MAN-ORD and MIA-BSB on American.

Distance wise BSB-ATL by DL 757 was the longest of all the routes listed on this topic. It was not affected much by winds like trasnatlantic routes though.

Are you sure it was non-stop? Condor only had 1 752. All others are 753s and they were and still are frequent visitors of Bangor, Gander, and the Azores.

I've taken to CDG-RDU in January, and the headwinds caused the in-air time can reach into the 9.5 hour range; it's a long flight unless in C+ or J. Delta almost blocks it off at 10 hours (9hr 54 min) gate-to-gate. If not the longest, it must be pretty close.

A few years back UTAir operated to the Russian Far East with the 752 - IIRC it was something like 10h 40m block time and over 4000 miles. Wasn't operated for long.

I believe so. I have the timetable, I'll double check when I get home. I remember the flight was only 1x weekly.

Well I guess since you're too lazy to look, I'll do the work for you. Yesterday's CDG-RDU was 10h 11 mins:

Before RDU-CDG.... ATL-BSB, JFK-PSA, and PIT-CDG were DL's longest 757 flights and probably the longest 757 flights overall.

ATL-BSB no longer operates
JFK-PSA no longer operates
PIT-CDG has been upgraded to a 763

Longest I been in a 757, was PHL to AMS. That flight was well, no IFE, and meals sucked. Seats were squished together, being 6ft 3 this flight, sucked as my seat didn't have any space between wall, and seat.
