Easily. Its range is something like 5500 nm.
Even a 737NG (700 or 800, not sure about the 600) can make it across the pond.
It is not enough to be rude; one must also be incorrect.

Absolutely. The BBJ can make that route and then some. Maximum design range of the BBJ is 6,200 nm. However, most BBJ's have ranges of 5,500-5,700 nm on average because of customer configurations that have extra weight that costs range.

Either way, I want one!!  Big thumbs up
