737 MAX Possible Routes.

Range of the 737 MAX 7 is 3,800 NM.
Range of the 737 MAX 8 is 3,620 NM.
Range of the 737 MAX 9 is 3,595 NM

What routes might be possible with this aircraft if the plane has ETOPS?

I'd say JFK-ORK.

According to a boeing presentation made at the farnborough airshow this year, it was stated that the 737 MAX will cover most routes that the 757s flies today except the transatlantic routes. However I believe the MAX could be possible used on routes from the east cost of the US to the UK and Ireland without too much penalties.

Boeing should use these on TATL routes that can connect small UK/Ireland airports to the east coast of the USA or long domestic routes like EWR/JFK-ANC if the markets are there.

Gotta get that ol' ETOPS stuff taken care of first  

I haven't really found anything, which engines are they gonna offer for the MAX? IIRC ETOPS all depends on the engines, right?

Let's say the plane has ETOPS certification.

ETOPS can be covered during the flight test program. Also to answer your other question, yes ETOPS depend on the engine choice, but since the MAX will be offered with 1 engine only i.e. the CFM LEAP-X engine, ETOPS testing would only be required for that engine only.

How about the rst of the America's, the current 737 is already capable of transcon in the USA, the MAX in no variant will be a 757 TATL replacement so the other regions which may benefit from the increased range must be closer to home, like the Caribbean, South and Central America.
Efficiency may well turn out to be the primary selling point of the MAX.

2/3 of the MAX aircraft can do TATL routes that the 757 can not do like fly from a small US airport on the east coast to a small western Euro airport.

Africa and/or Europe (Cape Verde, Madeira and Canary Islands) still may not be doable from PTY and run into ETOPS issues.

ETOPS requires more than just engine certification. For example the current ETOPS 180 on the 73NG is restricted by firefighting capability in the cargo hold. If that was improved then the current NG's would likely be able to get a higher etops cert. I wonder if they will fix the cargo fire supression system on the MAX to allow for a higer etops rating or if they will leave it at 180

Where would they fly the MAX for it to need more than the current 180?

It should be pointed out that the 737 already HAS a cargo hold fire suppression system, even in non-ETOPS configured aircraft, in accordance with regulations, blah blah. It simply doesn't exceed the 180 requirements.
That said, I'm with 817dreamliiner... where on earth would you send a 737 that needed beyond ETOPS180!?!?!
Please tell me, so that I can avoid the flight! I love me some 737, but not THAT much.

It's obvious that WN will use the 737 MAX on its really long routes such as US transcon flights. A good example would be LAX-BWI, which I believe is now being flown by 737-700's fitted with winglets.

I agree 100%. It won't be used on EWR/BOS/PHL-TATL.

I assume your talking asking about original routes because in 20 years they will be flying every city pair the current fleets are flying as they will be the only new builds. the first routes will probably be the longest routes where the fuel savings will be taken advantage of the most.

AM will not be crossing any oceans with its 737MAX's but I would not be surprised to see AM giving BOS and SEA another go. AM might also consider opening MEX-YVR, MEX.GYE, and maybe MEX-VVI.



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

These routes won't work for a simple reason. The MAX requires really long runways, probably well over over 11,000 ft. at MTOW. Cork's longest runway is 7,000 ft.. And most small western European airports don't have particularly long runways. The A320NEO might be able to do these routes. It requires a shorter runway.

This is being discussed here.

I'm fairly confident the Boeing isn't an airline.

Thanks for making me feel like a total failure AGAIN.    Well anyway the 737 MAX 7 could be used for thin TATL routes from the east coast to UK/Ireland.
