    My shortest flight was in August 1995 on a United Airlines B741, from BWI to IAD, appr. 10 minutes airborne. But this was not a sheduled service (divertion).
    Shortest sheduled flight probably was from Ilulissat to Aasiaat, Air Greenland Dash-7, appr. 15 minutes airborne.

    It was a long time ago. I think the flight may have been going to OAK for maintainence.

    What time period was it? I'm assuming definitely not during the oil crisis. I don't even know when that was exactly.

    A long time ago, I think there was a flight from sfo-oak. It would have been easier driving over the Bay bridge than to take that flight.

    How about JNU-SIT on Alaska. It is 20 minutes on a 737.

    Isn't that Vancouver to Toronto? That's got to be far longer than 37 miles

    What airline is it?

I'm sure if they can make it to SFO from Asia they can just as soon make it to LAX. Do they do that much business? Or are they pretty much flying to LAX empty? The one I saw do this was Nippon Cargo Airways.
