I used to fly BAH-DHA before the bridge was built (and even after as it was quicker getting through customs that way initially). Just over 20 miles, in a TriStar. Flight time about 15 minutes, max altitude 2,000 feet.

Managed a couple of last minute G&Ts before hitting the kingdom IIRC!

KTM to PKR in Nepal

SQS to PLJ in Belize


Can't tout exclusive FT credit, as "Jailer" was with me

USAir used to regularly fly from ITH (Ithaca, NY) to ELM (Elmira, NY) in a DC-9. That's 32 miles. I flew it once in 1984 when visiting Cornell University. The flight continued to PIT, where I made a connection.

Used to be regular on Powell River (YPW) - Vancouver (YVR). Learned a lot about thermals on those flights.

I have... Very enjoyable experience!

I'll try MAN-LDY on Loganair. Anyone else did that one?

How about these...:


IPW (Ipswich, UK) lost its scheduled services in 1988 and closed in 1997.

I think that one is very popular - did it on Siem Reap Airlines

I'll add to my MHH-TCB,

PBH-IXB, SKB-SXM, GYD-ASB, TAS-UGC, FRU-ALA, DAD-SGN and VLI-NOU - but I think some FT will have done it.

BLF-BKW and BKW-BLF when BLF was an EAS market... on J31 and B1900.

ROA-LWB-DCA on the Dash 8 instead of the nonstop ROA-DCA.

DCA-BWI repositioning flight on US EX on a F27, back in late 80s, but as a connection to somewhere north (perhaps LGA?).

PIT-PIT. Ok, this was supposed to be PIT-CRW but got turned back due to low ceiling in CRW. Spent the night in PIT and flew PIT-CRW on an extra section at 5:30AM so they could make the 7AM CRW-PIT flight on US... DC-9.
