I've got a candidate for shortest flight/biggest plane:

I was flying to Kinshasha, DRC and was on a 757. It first landed in Brazzaville, RC, then took off across the Congo River and landed in Kinshasha. It was maybe a leisurely 15 minute flight. I can't imagine how much fuel was burned getting that thing in the air just to land it again.
