What is the difference between 5 hours on a 737 vs 5 hours on a 757 or A320? For that matter, how about the days of the 707/DC-8/VC-10? Oh, sorry, I forgot that there are people that have never ridden a narrowbody transcon or transoceanic.
I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.

Oh, CO does that garbage all the time on LAX-EWR and back.I just did SNA-EWR in a 73G back in August, and due to a delay in SNA we had to make a fuel stop at BWI.(fun huh, right.)One advantage is that the flights that have 73Gs doing long flights is that the plane in never full because of the restictions.

Copa also uses the 73G NON-STOP between Panama City and Buenos Aires. I belive that is the longest non-stop 737 flight. Before 9/11, Varig operated a second-weekly Miami-Manaus frequency with a 73G as well (also about 5-5.5hrs. TAM uses an A320 on the route daily).
