Is there a way to tell which type of aircraft flies a particular flight? or do they interchange a/c like SWA does? I can't find that information on their website. I might be flying them this summer and would like to fly both the 732s and the 73Gs(winglet).

Longer hauls and transcons are usually -700s. All flights east of Hamilton are on -700s.

The -200s are primarily on routes around the West.

But really, it's a luck of a draw. Some flights which normally will be on a -200 will be switched to -700s due to changes in planes downline somewhere. But that's common to every airline.

If you let me know what route you'll want to fly on I can tell you what a/c type you'll be flying on.

thanks for the quick responses. CanadaEH, I will definetely let you know if we end up going to Canada this summer. More than likely we'll fly between YYZ and YUL or YOW.

Westjet will be operating -700's between YYZ and YOW/YUL, and they should be equipped with LiveTV by then.

I'll bring this back and ask another relevant question:

I'm flying YYC-YXX on April 7, what are my chances of being on a -700?

WS operates a handful of -200s daily between YHM and YOW, so one could assume that'll continue when the hub is shifted to YYZ next month.

As for YXX..... the route seems mostly served by -200s, so you're more than likely will be on one of those.

Goose, I checked the schedule from April 18 onwards, YOW is going all -700.

777YYC, that'll be a -200.

To go further:

737-700's only:
YHM, YHZ, YOW, YQG, YQM, YQT, YUL, YQX, YYT, YYZ

737-200 and 737-700:
YEG, YQR, YVR, YYC, YWG, YXU, YYJ (after June 1)

There are a few exceptions on certain days, and there have abeen a few additions that haven't shown up on the schedule yet.
