I was just reading about that - pretty impressive! I was on the same flight back in July last year and we landed in London nearly an hour ahead of schedule - nothing like arriving early to make you feel better once you land!

My jetBlue JFK-LAX flight last May came close at 799 mph... supposedly. Although hard to believe since it was a westbound flight.

Not the most accurate way to determine this.

Pennsylvania seems to be quite a bit off the shortest route
