737-700 BBJ Range

While looking at 737s for fun I came across this flight.

N480CH Flight Tracking and History 19-Dec-2020 (KOPF-TLV / LLBG) - FlightAware

I thought the max range was 6000, but this one is reaching close to 7000. All the articles If read said with belly tanks 6000 was about it. Anyone know more ?

Are you confusing nautical vs statute miles?

Yes, Most likely But it looks like they really pushed the Edge :). It flew 6,645 Miles and the range in Statue would be 6,900 (6000 nmi). Doesn’t look like it had much left for Alternate.

The specs say 6,196 nm range (7,130 mi). They had over 400 nm reserve range.
