The LGW - Malabo flights are on the 737-700 and one seat in every row of 3 is left free for extra comfort.If the 737 can do the 3305 mile flight, why doesnt the 737 make an appearance on the lower load transatlantic flights? Surely it could gain ETOPS for it, and please NOBODY mention the bloody LH flights on the 737BBJ, its got extra tanks and carries hardly any pax so it doesnt count!

Horus - SSG is Malabo in Equitorial Guinea. Flight time is around 7 hours, although I was operating a flight (which featured in an Airliner World article!) where we carried out two missed approaches into Malabo, and then diverted to Duala in Cameroon. Flight time was around 8 hours 15 mins! Astraeus have operated two flights tranatlantically to Deer Lake in Newfoundland, Canada, and should be flying there this winter, although flight times are only 5 hours 30 mins or so. The LGW- SSG flight is now operated on our 757 G-OAVB offering a 36 in seat pitch throughout the cabin.

This topic is great because I tried to get more info on Air Pacific's flights from YVR-HNL-NAN. Got a great price but what service can I expect on their 737 800s. The price was Cad800 less than Quantas or any other combinations.

I am surprised that more CO flights are not listed! I know they really strech their A/C as far as range. It's a great move economically but it is not the best being in a narrow body for a long flight. They have Service from EWR to the Caribbean and to Mexico. Their EWR-PVR flight is 2,287 miles and lasts 5 hoirs and 26 minutes going(slightly less on the return).
