The two farthest consecutive alphabetic English letters on a standard QWERTY keyboard are P & Q with a key-unit distance of 9.

The letter pair and key-unit distance remains the same (P & Q with key-unit distance of 9) for both the standard QWERTZ and standard AZERTY keyboard layouts.
For a standard DVORAK keyboard layout, there are two pairs of consecutive letters - N & O and Q & R - each has a key-unit distance of 7. The standard keyboard layouts of the QWERTY, QWERTZ (or QWERTZU), AZERTY and DVORAK place the English alphabetic letters along three rows. A few layouts, such as the left- and right-handed DVORAK keyboards, place the English alphabetic letters along four rows. The furthest pair of consecutive letters on these non-standard keyboard layouts are J & K with a key-unit distance of 7.
