What is the best B737 version for flights between North-Africa and Europe. I'm looking for comparatives of fuel consumption (best engine), performance on hot and cold conditions, revenue and cost effectiveness, dry-leasing prices...many thanks  Wink

I suggest 737-800, even with full load you can go nearly any place from Europe to Tunis or Monastir! All 737s basically use 2400kgs/hour of fuel, so makes no difference, but 738 more passenger  Wink
The 738 has 26 or 27k rated engine, depends on the operator! At HLF where I flew them we had both 26k and 27k rated 738s! LOADS of power  Wink

And the 738 is just the best  Wink

Well, it depends on the runway... and will you be looking to carry cargo or not...
For cheapest lease cost per seat (and leading to cheapest cost per hour) at the moment I'd guess 734...

Garuda leased the ex Aeroflot ones through GECAS, if I remember correctly they were the 64T GTOW version and was leased (Aircraft only and pick it up yourself in Shannon, Ire.) at US$115 - US$125k per month... (You won't get this price if you're a startup unless U get a rustbucket).

Now, the 68T GTOW version is more expensive... Get them CFM56-3C powered... I've been told they're better for longer legs than the -3Bs.

However, for the long long term, get the NG, the -7 engines I've been told are waaay better for longer than 2h flights (whereas the -3 engines are better for <1.5h). Plus, they'll fly higher... which can be useful over crowded airspace...

U want cheaper? GET THE 732! LOL... make sure it's RVSM and TCAS certified... Even the ready but not installed RVSM would cost US$400k installation & certification! Otherwise kiss Europe goodbye... U can burn up to 600kg/h higher below FL270 than your optimum!

When losing situational awareness, pray Cumulus Granitus isn't nearby !
