Shortest and longest flight times - long haul routes

Thought it might be interesting to start a thread comparing flight times for Cathay's long haul routes, especially for North America where flight times can vary by 2-3 hours depending on the time of year. Would like to see the shortest and longest time in the air for specific routes.

For each flight, would be great to know:
1. Route
2. Flight time (from takeoff to landing, not incl. taxiing)
3. Date

Just as an example: I'm seeing CX 881 clock in 13hr 45min in the air on Sept 27, which seems to be quite short for LAX > HKG.

For the past few weeks, CX 811 (BOS-HKG) has been running 14' 47" to 15' 42" . I'm following it since I am taking it on early Tuesday morning next week.

True, although there is a limit for flight history - 730 days for the top plan. Was more interested in all-time records. Any idea if there's a resource where you can get data from further back in time as well?
