I don't think that is much of a surprise, the -900er has a range of 3,200 nautical miles (5,925 km) - two-class layout, 2 aux. tanks 2,700 nautical miles - one class layout (per the Boeing website).

I was shocked to see the 7:10 to lax tonight is a 737-900!!! I have flown it to las weight restricted so i cant see how it can make it to lax tonight?
|Quoting Flynavy (Reply 7):|
I believe the SEA-MCO flight on AS was originally a 737-900 when the route was launched (now a 737-800).
|Quoting AirframeAS (Reply 8):
CO has done it with the IAH-ANC route, I believe.
|Quoting FlyHoss (Reply 14):|
IIRC, 12 of the 30 737s to be delivered to CO in 2008 will be -900ERs. But I could be wrong and I didn't take the time to look it up.
737:s on 6 hour flights is every day business in Europe on charter flights
to for example Canary Islands.
And we do not even think about it.
|Quoting ThePRGuy (Reply 18):|
But not necessarily 739s, usually 737-800 units with turkish, UK charter airlines etc.
|Quoting Seabosdca (Reply 10):|
Given the frequently ridiculous demand, I'm surprised that AS doesn't operate SEA-DCA-SEA with 739s in the summer.
