Actually, the 737NG and A319-100 can fly across the Atlantic. Continental at one time was thinking of operating the -NG aircraft on flights to Ireland, and IIRC, Air Canada operated a flight 3x's weekly from St. Johns, Newfoundland to London Heathrow with the A319.
St. Johns to London is about 50 minutes shorter than Los Angeles to Boston (around 5 hours 10 minutes), and Newark-Shannon is about 1 hour longer than Los Angeles to Boston.
