I remember reading a magazine (can't remember which one) stating that Swiss World was interested in ordering 737-700s for Transatlantic "hops". This was back about 1-2 years ago when Swiss World thought they were gonna succeed at Geneva-Newark flights, and then add Geneva-Dulles and Geneva-Montreal. I assume that they would have required a fuel stop in Shannon, or maybe Keflavik, but maybe somehow they could run a 73G transatlantic. Although weight restrictions would be very much in effect.
