Re: Are there any TATL routes that can be operated by a 737NG?

Norwegian was operating the 737-800 briefly at the start of there 737 transatlantic ops before the Max arrived. Mostly PVD/SWF-Ireland, and a few other European places. They also operated the routes with the -800 after the max grounding. Back in 2015, Norwegian also flew LGW-JFK (via KEF) on a 737-...

Re: What's the emptiest flight you've been on recently?

I haven't flown since early March, and that flight was actually quite full (~60% LF on AA E190 ATL-LGA).

My all-time emptiest flight was in April 2019: about 15 pax on a Southwest 737-700 on a late-night BOS-ATL flight.
