The problem is that even with no wipes the shortest flashpoints takes 40 minutes...

Add in wipes, the longer flashpoints, etc., they all take way to long to complete.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."...

No longer than instances in an average MMO.

Before Dungeon Finder and shortly after Cataclysm was released (I dunno if people are outgearing and breezing through them at this point, no longer play) dungeons and heroics in WoW took several hours to complete much of the time.

Apperantly no one has ever done wailing caverns in vanilla (sticking to the wow comparison)

In speaking from personal experience (and this is with pugs, all hardmodes)

Black Talon - 35 minutes
Boarding Party - 40 minutes (with wipes on last boss)
Foundry - 30 minutes (don't clear to final boss because he's bugged)
False Emperor - 1 hour

Haven't done hardmodes for the others. Not sure what you were expecting? Even if they took over an hour, that's par for course for an MMO.
