Hi everyone..

I wanted to ask you about the airlines that are flying between Europe and America with 2 engined aircrafts. But not 777s 767s or A330s.

Which airlines are flying with 737s, A320 etc.?
What are the routes?


Thnx for the information.....

LH uses an A319 business jet.

48 seats I believe. I looked at the flight, I dont see it right now, but off and on they serve that route with that small plane.

UAL 777 CONTRAIL

Miami Air have used 738's on Reach flights for the US Mil. AmTrans 752's and 753's also operate transatlantic on a daily basis, as do Omni and North American with 752's. A number of UK and Canadian charter operators have also used 757's for Atlantic work.

If I am not mistaken, Privatair fly BBJs and 319s from Dusselldorf to Newark.

Indeed, CO uses B757-200s on Trans-Atlantic Routes such as EWR-OSL.

Condor sometimes uses B757-200s on some of their lower-density charter-routes into the caribbean.

Also, there are some company-owned aircraft that fly regular shuttle-service over the atlantic such as Daimler-Chrysler Aviation or Volkswagen Air Services.

Does Ford have any factories in the Americas where they fly to with their BBJ´s? Here in Europe they use the plane for shuttles between Stansted, Cologne and Valencia, as far as I know.

British charter airlines such as Monarch, Airtours (as then) and Britannia used the 757 on flights from the UK to Florida and the Caribbean.

Isn't Air France doing something similar to Privatair with A319CJ's?

Correct, they are also using A 319's for selected long-haul flights but in a two class configuration (Business and Economy Class) and not for transatlantic flights, the current destinations are: Kuwait, Pointe Noire, Riad, Malabo, and Tashkent. The flight to Doha has been discontinued lately because it was not profitable. The next Dedicate destination should be Kish Island but I think they don't have traffic rights at the moment.

Yes, all FI flights are operated with the 757 except the new flight to SFO, it is operated with a 767. If I remember correct did FI also fly with the 737 (-400?) to MSP a few years ago but I am not 100% sure.

I remember another one: TWA used to fly into BCN on B757-200 end of the 1990ies...

Well... it seems fine to me that some carriers are doing transatlantic and long distance flights with the smaller single aisle planes. I just finished a 6 1/2 hour transcon on a B737-700 and it was quite pleasant... plenty of room, very good FA service... easy to board and deplane. Besides... you only have to look around to note that smaller jet aircraft are making a big impact in the market and one does not necessarily have to cross "the pond" in a huge twin aisle to be comfortable and safe, given the incredible reliability of modern aircraft and engines.
Aside from that.. there's the Europeans coming out with the A380 and having launched the Queen Mary 2, a 150+ thousand ton floating liner... I guess that a lot of folks do think that "size matters", ha ha...
