Two 757-served flights of considerable length that I am aware of are:
	American: VVI-MIA, great circle separation of ~4850 km
	BA:       GLA-BOS, great circle separation of ~4500 km

Note that there is no MIA-VVI flight. AA 757s do a circle: MIA-LPB-VVI-MIA; I
don't think even a 757 is capable of taking off from LPB with a load of fuel
needed to get all the way to Miami.
