Any Airlines Use 737NG For Overseas Service?

I was just wondering since the 737NGs have much longer range than their earlier versions, if any airlines use them for Atlantic crossings. I know Lufthansa have an arrangement with PrivatAir (using 737BBJs) for Atlantic crossing to the US but I guess there are a few others.

Air Pacific flies them from Fiji to Honolulu to Vancouver-using the -800 series.

I know that Sky Service was going to fly from Gander, NFLD over seas with a A319 but that was only a dream, as we all know it didn't happen!

Continental flys 737-800's outta its Guam hub..All over the pacific. Aloha flys 737-700's from the west coast of the us to Hawaii, which is the longest overwater route with out a diversion point. Pretty impressive for a narrowbody Boeing carrying under 150 people

I think the reason it didn't happen is because the passengers would be too confined in such a small aircraft for a such a long time.

Qantas were using a Polynesian leased 738 model for CHC and WLG to SYD for some time in 2002-2003 that is until Jet Connect started with QF's 733 again (a bit of a step down!!!!)

Prior to the 1970's, all long-distance flights were in narrow bodies, and peopel seem to have survived them just fine. In fact, the early 707's and DC-8's had about the same cabin dimensions as the 737-800/900.

CO uses (used to use) the 738 and/or 739 for some routes to Europe. One that comes to mind is the CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO-EWR-MAN route. I just did a quick search on their website to check that data and it showed that they are using 75's and 76's now. However, within the last year I know for a fact that I have been on a 739 from CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO to EWR and that plane had continuing service (same flight number...20 I believe) to MAN

B.W.I.A. use 737-800s between POS-YYZ and POS-MIA. Just two examples of their overseas routes.

COEWR,

MAN has been 1 757-200, DC10-30, 777-200, and a 767-400.

Just because flights 20 and 21 originate in MCO, and the domestic legs are flown with 737's or 757's doesn't mean the int'l leg is. CAL has never flown 737's to Europe. God willing, they never will.......

Of course not! That's what the ERJ-SLR (super long range) aircraft is for...

I thought that CO used the 738s for a little while on EWR-SNN-DUB run. I'm almost certain this was done, at least that is what was printed on their little schedule books that they used to print.

As said above, CO never flew any 737 transatlantic. Even to Ireland they used 757s and 767s. There is no 737 equipped with BusinessFirst Seats and as that is allways on of their marketing points, it would have made no sense.
BTW, the 757 has only a couple of rows more than the 737-800/900
