Weird Plane in Boston!

I am aware that Flyglobespan has started service to Boston. I had no idea that this airline was using a 737 for their international service. Why are they using the 737? Is the capacity not as big as they hoped or is this the aircraft that has been used since day one of operations. I am disappointed. I thought they would use a 767 or a 757 like on the JFK route. This is the picture i was looking at

Boring 737-800,900 has a range of up to 2500nm. Believe it or not Malev-Hungarian airlines also uses thet 738 for flights between Budapest and JFK. It does look kinds wierd, but it's true.

I knew the range ,but thank you for clearing that up. Should be neat to see an international airline flying a domestic aircraft!! 😀 😀
