Privatair flies from Dusseldorf and Munich to EWR and ORD. On BBJs an A319CJs. There are numerous threads on the matter.

Other than the BBJs and A319CJs, the smallest aircraft on the north Atlantic are A319s (ie Skyservice). I don't think there are any 737s across the pond.

And please, enough of the God bless through Jesus.

Cedarjet: The issue you are referring to has recently been discussed here. I can fully understand your sentiment.

On the transatlantic question:
So, do delivery flights count? In that case, regional jets and others are allowed to cross.

About certification - I don't think there's a specific "allowed to fly transatlantic" certificate. I think it's the range they are certified for, and if they are twinjets, their time allowed away from land. So take the two closest airports on either side of the pond, compare that to the ranges of all known airliners, find out whether they're ETOPS certified if they're twins, and you know the information. If a stopover in Iceland is permitted, I'd imagine even non-BBJ 737s can do the trip, as well as normal A319s.

Hey there,
Sorry to say that Skyservice Airlines was suppoused to fly from YHZ to Malaga Spain on the 319's this summer and last summer but we never got the ETOPS/EROPS. But Who in their right mind would want to fly in something that small on a flight that long??? The smallest that I think I have seen in YYT from the other side is Tu-154 for Sibir Airlines. Just about a month ago.
