Around the world, in a 737-700

Guest

Ok, the thing is, I did the around the world before, but I did it in a 747-400.

But I now want to do it again, but in a 737-700. All the land routes are ok, as the 737-700 has a maximum range of 3260nm

But what I'm wondering, how am I going to get accross the pacific ocean?

The route I did in the 744 before this was

Heathrow - Rome - Baghdad - Bangkok - Tokyo - LA - Bermuda - Heathrow

I would like to do that route again (but maybe in reverse) but obviously Tokyo - LA is far too long for a 737-700 to cross, is there another way, another place I can stopover half way accross the pacific, just a small island with an airport or whatever?

yes honolulu or kona your choice but dont forget to maintain a certain speed to conserve on fuel

Mach .79 would be my aim.

I'll go high to make sure I get the best fuel economy

Around FL380 or FL390 if possible

If I were doing it, I'd do it (if you wan't to go in reverse)...

Jacksons - (AYPY) to Faleolo Intl - (NSFA) = 2400nm
Faleolo Intl - (NSFA) to Honolulu Intl - (can't remember the ICAO code) = 2200nm
Honolulu Intl - (xxxx) to Los Angeles (KLAX) = 2200nm

I think the last time I cross the Pacific in that region I went from the Phillipines to Kwajalein Island (Marshall Islands) to Hawaii to Mexico. That was in a Lear Jet, which has a range of only about 2000 nm.
