Aloha is going to fly from HNL and Maui to Oakland, CA, nonstop with B737-700's! Who would want to sit in the small cabin of a 737 for a 5+/- hour flight? What is the range limit on the 737-700? What about ETOPS certification? Any info welcome!

I regularly fly on United's A319s and A320s non-stop across the continental United States. Depending on headwinds that flight can be 4 to 6 hours (6 1/2 hours was my longest cross country flight). So I don't see any drawbacks. I'd gladly sit on a similar plane like the 737NG if it were headed for Hawaii! Smaller jets with longer range offer more choices at more airports and more opportunity for the flying public. Aloha, Aloha!

There is something about riding on a large aircraft that makes it seem like you have more space. I know when I deplane from Cathay's 747's at YVR and get on Air BC's BAe-146's to SEA, I feel alot more cramped!
