Can someone from Continental or Alaska tell me what an AVG per hour burn rate is on the 737-900er?

If Anyone from Alaska reads this do you go full tanks to Hawaii from SEA? If so can you take a full load of pass. with full tanks?

Thanks for the info...

I thought Alaska was only taking the -800s to HI. I may be wrong, but I thought CAL was the first to take the 900ER over the Pacific. I think the flights just started from LAX.

This information could be perceived as Sensitive Security Information (SSI). I am going to ask the moderator to remove it.

Correct, ALK flies the -800 to the islands. ALK's -900s are not ERs.

Well, in every flight manual I have seen, the performance chapter doesn't have the SSI warning text in the header/footer, so its not SSI, so get over yourself.

hmmm?
Continental is going to operate the -800's to HNL from LAX. Don't know if the -900ER will replace it down the road(who really cares, they both suck) but for now the -800 is on the run. I remember in the very recent past(2006-2007) flying the 767-400 on that segment. Used to like the trip( EWR based trip at the time). Oh well....

The 900er is a dog. Never gets much higher than 330, takes all day to get there. I am not sure why it is called the er anyway case it holds the same amount of fuel as the strait 900, just holds more weight. I think the ER stands for Enhanced Revenue.

That is correct, Enhanced Revenue. It does not stand for Extended Range Ops. It unfortunately is not a 757.

Interesting that the fuel burn doesn't seem to change much by altitude, it's all about the weight. Looks like significant drag at the higher weights.

Oh don't tell some of our 737 drivers that.. they get pi$$ed when you tell them a 737 is no replacement for a 757.. :)

I would like nothing more than to fly the 756, but I just prefer the schedule I can hold at my seniority on the FLUF.

I think they redesigned the aft pressure bulkhead to make more room for seats on the 900ER.

I agree, that's not even close to SSI.

AS takes full 800s to Hawaii as long as the weather cooperates. Today's HNL and LIH flights are full.
