737-400 and Airbus A320 Range

Recommended Posts

Just curious, but does anyone know if there are any 737-400s on regularly scheduled routes between any California cities and Hawaii? I thought about flying the Dreamfleet 737 to Honolulu for some over ocean practice and wondered if the real thing ever does it or is out of its range. Also, doees the A320 ever get used to Honolulu and how does its range compare to a 737-400? Thanks. :-)

Aloha flies a B-737-700 from PHNL to both Ontario (KONT), Burbank (KBUR), Oakland (KOAK), John Wayne (KSNA), Vancouver (CYVR), and Las Vegas (KLAS) daily.I do not know of any A320's flying from the mainland to Hawaii. I do know that some 320's fly from Europe to the US.Hope this will help.John

I didn't know A320s were ETOPS qualified?Which airlines use them trans Atlantic (just so I can avoid being locked in a narrow-body for 7+ hours :-)).There were plans to use 737-700 trans Atlantic as well, those were shelved in favour of 757s and A330s.

That would be the A319 Corporate Jetliner :-) . And you're right, it is indeed meant as an equivalent to the BBJ.I hope PA might do one of these along with their upcoming "regular" 319s! :D

Businessjets aren't subject to ETOPS regulations (though many operators probably do adopt them volluntarilly) and don't normally feature 100+ seats crammed into the interior :-wave
