Never flown a 737 but have jump seated enough times. I would certainly hate doing any kind of long sector, 6 hours plus must be excruciating. The bus was bad enough but at least a lot more room.

Companies will always push to the utter limit of duty times and I reckon post Covid they will try to push even harder.

As long as your in the J seats it doesn’t matter.

The B737 was never designed with long sectors in mind, that’s very obvious from the flight deck design with the crew shoehorned into a tiny space and the jump seat resembling a folding camp chair which blocks the door when in use.

The A320 has a more spacious cockpit which can accommodate two jump seats and has tables for the pilots. Airbus simply needs to make the pilots seats a bit more comfortable and it’s perfectly suitable for longer flights.

.

The initial design of the 737 was started in 1964. It was designed for short routes of 1000 miles. Over the years, the range has grown, but the flight deck never did. When I went from the 737 to the 777, I was amazed at how much the large cockpit made a difference.
