Some of the CO -300's have bit more range............and those are the aircraft for the most part getting the winglets, they have rafts and the low end IFE's! Range.....gosh, like to say 2,200 NM but not sure of that, just a guess.

Conventional wisdom would hold that the -500 has the best range since it's the shrink. But no.

From our very own http://www.airliners.net/info

737-300
Max cruising speed 908km/h (491kt), long range cruising speed 794km/h (429kt). Range with 128 passengers and standard fuel 3362km (1815nm), range with 128 pax and max fuel 4973km (2685nm). High gross weight version max range 6300km (3400nm) with 140 passengers.

737-400
Max cruising speed 912km/h (492kt), long range cruising speed 813km/h (439kt). Standard version range with max payload 4005km (2160nm), typical range with 146 passengers 3630km (1960nm). High gross weight option range with 146 passengers 3850km (2080nm).

737-500
Max cruising speed 912km/h (492kt), economical cruising speed 795km/h (430kt). Standard range with max passengers 2815km (1520nm), higher gross weight option range with max passengers 4444km (2400nm).

Probably best to go to the source. Payload/range charts for all 737 models here.
http://www.boeing.com/commercial/airports/acaps/737sec3.pdf

Note that with maximum fuel and no payload, the -300 and -500 have almost identical range (with equivalent fuel capacity option), and the -400 range is a couple of hundred of miles less. All 3 models have 3 optional fuel capacities.

I know the Braathens SAFE (now part of SAS, sadly) B737-500 flew 125 pax nonstop Oslo-Canary islands for years. That's a 5h45min flight stretching 4,100km and they were great flights with excellent inflight service. How I miss those days...

The Braathens B737-400 could reach the Mediterranean destinations from Oslo with 156 pax.



Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

737-300 does Manchester-Las Palmas-Manchester non stop every Saturday, which is a 1700nm leg. Range is pretty good on the 300, the 400 does have range limitations when full. A particular airline flying Cyprus-UK a few years ago with the 400 was restricted with a full load.

Didn't US have some 737-400 aircraft with additional fuel tanks? These aircraft flew CLT-SFO, CLT-LAX, PIT-LAS, etc. if my memory serves me correctly.

Cheers,
John

Yep. Auxiliary fuel tanks were an option for the 737-300 and -400. Not sure if they offered them on the -500, although they would work there too.

High gross weight version max range 6300km (3400nm) with 140 passengers.

That can't be right. Have a look at the link Viscount724 provided.



Exceptions confirm the rule.
