You were wrong about everything in that post.
1. The trip was filed at 3394nm planned (it's only 3297nm direct)
2. This is basically a ferry flight, and eastbound at that, so still-air range is going to be shorter.
3. Ferry range is listed as over 5000nm by Boeing
4. Why would you even assume WN would fly beyond the aircraft's technical abilities? The plane has even been en-route since you posted.
