Newark? would that be a major announcement? That all I could think of, then again anything for Edmonton seems to be major at times.

Sun destination as I suspected. There are an aweful lot of Albertans who escape winter in Hawaii so this makes sense. It will take some of the traffic from charter companies and no doubt WestJet will sell packages as well.

Well, the build up to this "major" announcement was just a tad overblown. The only thing worse would have been if they had used that over-used phrase "This announcement is so big, years from now you'll remember where you were when you heard it"

Several other carriers operate the 737-700/800 on nonstop routes as long and in some cases longer. Those are standard aircraft, not BBJ's with extra fuel tanks.
But on those routes do they have alternates along the way. No alternates from YVR to HNL/OOG.
