I've so far flown on the -200, -300, -400, -500, -700 and -800. Most of those too many times to count (most on the 738 but not many times on the -400 and -500). Of those, my favourite is the -200: it is a noisy, fun machine, and a real character.

All of them bar the -100 and the -600

Easily the best one is the -200 but only on short hops to GLA
Otherwise its p*** off annoying

-800 is great for quiet but spacious arrangements


Thanks
Alex

I've had the pleasure of flying on 100, 200, 300, 500, 700, 800, 900.

In order of favorites

1. 800 with winglets, if no winglets then 900 wins.
2. 900.
3. 700 with winglets of course.
4. 500 can't wait to see this with winglets soon.
5. 300.
6. 200.
7. 100 only because I don't remember much about them.

I think I might have also flown on a KL 739 AMS-LHR, but I'll have to double-check when I return home.

Well, I'd have to say the 737-200. No real contest.
Regarding any newer generation 737s, it's the 737-700, hands down!

Have been on flights operated by the following, with 8 different airlines

-200
-300
-400
-500
-700
-800
-900

As for favorites among the 737 variants listed above, my thought is "what's the difference?" All have the same 3x3 seating in Y/Economy and 2x2 in F (or 2x3 in KLM Business class) -- the only noticeable differences I have found are the length of the passenger cabin, hence the total number of pax seats and overwing emergency exit plug-type doors. Otherwise, I have found virtually no difference in legroom and comfort of the seats. My "favorite 737 series" is not about the aircraft but rather whether I was seated in Y or F and the level of onboard service of the airline concerned. My best 737 experience was on a KLM 737-400 in Y on the FRA-AMS route -- the pax experience in Y on any of the KLM 737 types operating flights that same day was probably of equal quality.

I have flown on...

737-200 (Delta and United)
737-300 (Southwest, United, US Airways, America West, Frontier Airlines)
737-400 (Alaska, US Airways)
737-500 (CanJet, United, Continental, Southwest)
737-700 (Alaska, Southwest, Continental) with winglets and without
737-800 (RyanAir, Alaska, Continental, American, Delta) w/ winglets and w/out
737-900 (Alaska, Continental)

Out of all of them, my favorite is the 737-700 with winglets. Maybe that is because I have flown it in an actual AS simulator, but it I like it a bunch. Long range, cool looking winglets, and great performance. Not a huge fan of the 2X2 exit row config though.

Order
737-700 (winglets)
737-200 (why not)?
737-500 (that thing hops)
737-900
737-800 (seemed cramped to me)
737-300
737-400

Not sure about:
737-400 (Asiana)
737-800 (Korean Air)

I'd say the 737-300 is my favorite. It's noisier Big grin

I've been on all but the -100, -600, -800, and -900.

I've enjoyed my flights on the -700's a lot. Comfortable plane, and seems to fly great.

I like the -800 the best, because I like longer aircraft, and it gave a nice takeoff.

I've flown most of the types, although obviously I'll never get the chance to fly a -100 now.

200 ... Ryanair (3), Palmair, European.
300 ... KLM (6), British Airways, FlyGlobespan.
400 ... KLM (6).
500 ... Lufthansa, BMI Baby, SAS (2), Braathens SAS (5), Aerolineas Argentinas.
700 ... Easyjet (3), Air Berlin, SAS Braathens.
800 ... Ryanair (5), Air Berlin, Air Europa (3), KLM.

For short flights the B732 is great fun, but when you're approaching a flight of 2 hours it gets a little too noisy for comfort. I Hope to get on the 600 and 900 series soon, the 737NG is a nice craft!

-300: With America West, PHX-LAS, 2005
-500: With Continental, MSP-EWR, 2006
-800: With Sun Country, MSP-PHX-MSP multiple times, 2005-2006, three currently scheduled in the future
-900: With Continental, PHX-IAH, 2005

I'd say the 737-800 is my favorite because the 737NG is more advanced, which is what I like. The 738 has winglets, while the 739 does not, and the 739 isn't as current as the 739ER, while the 738 is still the most current offering of its size. Plus, it's the most-ordered 737NG variant, as well as the one I've been on the most. Actually, it's the only 737 I've been on more than once.


25 AeroWesty : -100, -200, -300, -400, -500, -700, -800 The -100/-200 have to be my favorites, but the flights I've had on the -700 and -800 weren't all that bad for
26 9MMAR : I have flown in the following Boeing 737 series: -200 (15) segments; (11) Indonesia's Batavia Air, (2) GA, (2) Indonesia's Sriwijaya Air. Total miles
27 Someone83 : I've flown: 200 (Braathens SAFE) 300 (Norwegian, Lufthansa, Easyjet, USAir, United) 400 (SAS, USAir, British Airways, KLM, Kulula) 500 (Continental, S
28 Lite : Flown on; B737-200 (British Airways, Ryanair, GB Airways) B737-300 (bmibaby, easyJet, Go, Shuttle by United) B737-400 (Virgin Express) B737-500 (bmiba
29 AirCop : The only one that I haven't flown is the -600 model. After experiencing the -300 series and later, I came to dislike the -100/200 series just because
30 OHLHD : I have been on all besides the first and the last ( -100 and -900) 200: AQ,6A 300: RG,MA,KL,LH 400: RG 500: LH 600: NG ( OS) 700: NG 800: NG,KL and I
31 Post contains images FighterPilot : I've flown on the -200 and -700. Both were with WS. I think my favourite is the -700, closely followed by the -200 Cal
32 Post contains images WestJetYQQ : 3 flights in a -200, 3 flights in a -700, All on WestJet. It's pretty close. Those -700s are hella sleek and damn sexy, but the -200s are old, noisy,
33 ERJ135 : I've not had the pleasure of many types, just 200, 300 and 800. Best flight was on Air New Zealand -300 and worst was United also on a -300
