Longest 737 Flight? GOL plans Brasilia - Cancun launch in June 2019, with the 737 MAX

Fri Sep 28, 2018 7:16 am

It does not say if flight would be non-stop or not. If it is non stop, it will be a 9 or 10 hours flight on a 737 MAX. Impressive

3,664 miles according to the Great Circle Mapper

That is about 200 miles farther than SWF-BGO at 3,456

Flights are being sold on GOL's website:
BSB-CUN blocked at 07h50min
CUN-BSB blocked at 07h50min

Good to see Brasil and CUN getting non-stop options. Copa takes hundres of passengers a day via their PTY connections.

Will be interesting to see whether either AM or DL will codeshare or with G3 on this flight, or provide any connectivity to/from it.

They'll be paying YHZ, YYT, or BGR a visit quite often.

I will guess not - I suspect Delta doesn't care to make CUN an international connecting point. DL fares xxx-MCO-BSB can be multiples of what Gol charges.

Already being discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1404895

Not the longest MAX flight, the third longest actually. BSB-MCO and EZE-PUJ are longer by distance.

I’m impressed that a 737 can do BSB-MIA, given that AA’s 757s usually have to go out with full fuel to be able to make it.

The 737MAX is opening up a number of Caribbean destinations from Brazil and Argentina. Good to see new vacation opportunities.

Although I feel deeply sorry for the poor mortals flying Y in a 737 for so long, my congratulations to Gol and success on the new routes.

Anything over 2 hours in a 737 is painful

People obsess (quite understandable) about new TATL routes using the MAX and the NEO but it's very likely that as these aircaft come into the hands of the operators we will see more and more of these 7+ hour flights all over the globe.The economics of them must be very appealing.

No different that the single aisle 757 in economy.

I regularly flew 6 hours legs in Y on Austrian 738's from DXB to VIE, and they were more comfortable than EK's 777 Y, BA 744 Y, LH 340 Y and depending on what seat you were on due to HUGE avod boxes, QR 330 Y.

Granted, this was over a decade ago but it goes to show comfort has more to do with the airline than the airliner.
What the...?

I agree, I've flown TK IST-ACC on a 739 in Y and that was extremely comfortable. It felt much less cramped than most wide bodies with 3-3-3 or 3-4-3 configuration.

I've done lax- pty and back on Copa. Comfortable, couldn't feel how fast time flies, but anything more on a 737 is just plain torture, I think.....

As I always say, airlines can make airliners as comfortable or uncomfortable as they'd like, doesn't matter if Airbus or Boeing or widebody or narrowbody.

Looks like the route is operating with a stop in Manaus with 737-800s.
