737-900 Transatlantic Flight

Hello, I am going to fly a flight from KACY to EGLL on a Delta Airlines 737-900. The flight nonstop is to much because the plane is to heavy that it hits turbulence. So I need a good stopover airport on the northeast coast before crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Please leave good airport recommendations, thank you!


St. John’s International Airport (CYYT) might be a good choice.


Boston is good. Montréal is probably your safest bet. Quebec City is also an option.


Thank you for the recommendations!

However, if you can, I suggest stopping at Reykjavik.


Bangor (KBGR) is a good one if that’s close enough, Shannon (EINN) on the other side.

Stop over in Iceland than carrier on should have enough range if you push it

Iceland is a very good stopover airport and the 737-900 can fly long enough to go to BIKF.


BA uses Shannon for their A318s. I usually go through Newfoundland, Nuul, or Reykjavik.

Want me to dig you a grave?

Lol just kidding, I know it is capable. Just plan well.


Actually going east the 739 should have enough range for that. You will need a stop over the other way though


Yeah I have done the flight nonstop but have stopped it because the plane is so heavy that the plane hits bad turbulence.

I am going to make a voting poll for the stopover airports.

  • Boston(KBOS)
  • St.Johns(CYYT)
  • Keflavik(BIKF)
  • Shannon(EINN)

There shouldn’t be a relation between the two things (weight and turbulence) to be honest apart from probably more turbulence at lower altitudes.

you can stop at kbos

There is always Keflavik, Iceland

Thank you for everyone’s recommendations! I think that I am going to use St.Johns(CYYT) as my stopover airport.

Well obviously…
