are there any scheduled Transatlantic flights that fly with any 737?

If there are, what carrier and what airports?

Cheers

LH operates 6x weekly services between DUS and ORD, MUC and EWR. At least one route is operated with a 737 (all routes operated by PrivatAir).

Ok, thanks

Any others except these pretty exceptional PrivatAir flights?

Only one I know of would be Private Air flying for Lufthansa DUS-EWR (I think) with Boeing BBJs.

I've seen another single-aisle a/c (A320) sub for a Skyservice A330 that went mechanical last summer. They put two A320's instead of the one split-destination A330 (so one went FCO the other VCE). The flights stopped in KEF both directions, and needless to say, the passengers were less than happy to be put in that tiny a/c for a 10 hour journey. They were also quite perturbed to discover most of their bags couldn't be taken, due to volume and weight restrictions...

Back in 1989, as a child, I remember flying in a single-isle aircraft with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines between Montreal (YMX) and Brussels (BRU). Can anyone shed any light on this distant flight? What aircraft type could thay have operated? I have no clue weather it was a charter or regular service.

Doesn't AF have plans to operate such biz-only flights like LH does? I think i remember having heard something like that. Apologies if I'm wrong  Smile

hi, new member here so I thought i'd post my first thread here. Astraeus (AEU) are starting a service from London Gatwick to Deer Lake,East Newfoundland to serve Humber Valley resort soon. This will operate on behalf of Barwell Leisure to compliment their services to Murcia (MJV) for La manga golf resort in Spain. They will use the B737NG for the non-stop service and flight time is said to be just under 6 hours. Now I know a lot of people would shriek and scream about the the thought of a single aisle across the pond etc but the flight time of 6/7 hours is common place to us Brits. We frequently go 4/5/6 hours plus on 737/757/A320 a/c on charter and also scheduled flights to places such as the Canaries, Greece, Cyprus and Egypt. As long as you have IFE and a good crew the time passes very fast. that would be my only concern with the new AEU service, no IFE. But i worked as crew for them for their first season and we flew the 733 as far as Greece with no IFE and with a bit of patience and nouse, we managed to get PAX disembarking sayin how it had been the best ever flight they had taken. Sometimes the personal touch far outweighs the roof mounted monitor, but thats just my opinion.

Miami Air 737-800 Baltimore to Keflevik, Iceland.
Also of note, Aloha operated 737-700's between Oakland California and Honolulu

Have CO ever operated or comtemplated operating the 738 from the US to SNN? Just thought i heard that once. Once point though, my aunt once flew from LGW to CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO via KEF and YYR on a 727 in the 80's.Not sure of the airline, may have been ATA, she said the original a/c went tech ( PROBABLY A TRISTAR) and they had to scramble 2 or 3 smaller birds at short notice.Shows that it can be done, guess it just means weighing up the costs of multi-stops against aquiring longer range birds or sub-chartering the flight.

Aviationlover1,

Aloha is a good example. They fly 737NG aircraft YVR-HNL, SNA-HNL, and BUR-HNL as well as OAK-HNL -- then on to Pago Pago, Kwajalein, and Christmas Island -- all over open ocean.

I doubt that Aloha is a good example for Transatlantic flights...

Wouldn't Aloha flights be considered Transpacific flights anyway?
I also heard that this summer, Business Jet will fly an all business class 737-700 from Newark to Rotterdam. Not sure of the start date though.

Continental flies a 737 from Newark to Aruba, it is technically a trans-a flight. I read this off of a trip report.

As far as I know, there are no SCHEDULED TransAtlantic flights that use the 737. The 737 is too small for such flights and it does not have the range to fly direct from, say, New York to London.

The LH subsidiary PrivatAir DOES offer SCHEDULED 737-800 service between MUC and EWR. It's configured with 48 Business seats, and, with that relatively little weight, it can easily make the distance.

So your assumption is, respectfully, not correct.

Ushermittwoch & LUV4JFK,

No, of course not. But Aloha is an excellent example of an airline using a 737NG over-ocean.
