I know right! I did this flight and it was scary because I had Headwinds the whole time but I made it! Weirdly my flight time was also exactly 7 hours.

Hopefully you do not have strong headwinds!

I’d love to come, but a midnight landing is hard to swallow…

Interesting. Unfortunately I can’t do it, it is in the middle of night in my country…

i would love to participate, but i am not expert and i am also going on a cruise ship that day.

i could also never be able to fly for 7 hours. It would end at exactly midnight for me!!

I might be able to participate as it would end at 6 AM my time. Gate C30 please, I’ll cancel if something turns out.

You now have a gate!

The 737’s range is actually really impressive. Turkish Airlines uses them on 7 hour flights to smaller markets in Africa and Asia.

Does the 737 even have enough fuel for this???

Yes it does, the 737-900 with only fuel can fly for 10+ hours
