Can a 727 or 737 fly from Halifax, to REK.
It´s a 4 hour flight.
Icelandair operates the service with a 757-200

Yes. KEF-YHZ is 1782 NM. This is comparable to CVG-SEA which Delta has operated with 727's. Icelandair also is a former 727 operator. The Boeing website lists the 727 range as up to 2,500 miles.

The standard 727-200 fly's from east coast usa to west coast. Not a problem. The 73 may be a little tight depending upon their fuel configuration.

Icelandair did in fact use a 737-400 YHZ-KEF, until traffic warranted a 757. Its not much further, or less, than your average US transcon or longer Euro-Sun charter.
