How is it that the BBJ has a range twice of the regular 73G? Does having only 18 passengers make that much of a difference or is it because the BBJ has a completely different fuel system? That being said, why doesn't anybody start an airline using the BBJ 737 carrying 120 people from the U.S to Europe? I'm thinking of a Southwest/Ryan Air type of airline. You can offer 33 inches on all the seats and $400 R/T tickets instead of the $600-1000 you pay for Int flights. Plus the passengers could bring their own food and entertainment.

The forward and aft cargo bays of the BBJ have been converted to integral fuel cells (instead of holding luggage as they do in the regular 737).

For a service using only a few passengers that's no problem, there's enough space to store their suitcases on board.
For a hundred or more, it does become a problem (and indeed the extra weight in the cabin means less usable weight for fuel of course as well).

I wish I were flying
