IU Just flew both ways to Las Vegas from LAX on a B737-300 on Southwest and I have always been a big fan of 737-300 planes. I would like to know what other people have to say.

That's an AWESOME picture by Shawn Byers. I like all of the 737s! Too bad Continental never flew the -400, because they would have flown every single version there was at one point in their history.

I like the -200s & -300s the best. -200s because of the engine whistle, -300 for no apparent reason, I just do.

Goboeing- CO never operated the -600, so they'd be one short I think.

My favourite in the 737 series is the -700, basically the same length as the -300 only newer and better.

I love the short -500/-600 too, but the -700 is tops in my book for look and feel and the -200 for nostalgic value. The -300/-400 bother me only because the wing seems so cluttered and small for aircraft of their size.

my fav is the -800 with winglets. i have flown on them 5 times and its great watching the huge 2.5 meter tall winglet bounce up and down like a yo-yo while taxying. (beats watching the same stupid safety demo time after time)

While I'm a big fan of 'Ol Stubby 737-200 and have enjoyed flights on the -300 and -400 series as well, the 737NGs I've flown in, the 700 and 800 are my favorites. They are such smooth flying aircraft, and their new interiors are really nice. The -700 is easily the best looking variant to me, it's proportions are just perfect. I've yet to fly on one equipped with winglets, though.

The NGs are definitely my favorites!

I flew a lot of 200's during my childhood holidays around the med. they where basically standard equiptment for charter airlines back then. The A320 of the day I suppose. However it was my first ride in the new generation 400 that I liked best.

This occured in November 1993 when I flew MAN-TFS on a Futura 737-400 EC-FLD. I liked the less stumpy appearance, and aslo the double overwing exits, which somehow make it look a little more superior. The only other one I have flown was BA's G-GBTA. Now even the 400's are outdated.

Of the next generation I have flown MME-ACE on Futura 737-800 EC-HHH and also EDI-TFS on Air Europa 737-800 EC-HZS, with winglets. I like the new cabin interiors but I will always remember the first 400 I flew in.

I would have to say the 800/900 I like those winglets. The 200 is was a inferior product of the 60's when compared to a 727 or a 707, witch it design come from. I heard a 200 can only cruise at 0.72 compared to a 727 0.84 0r a 707 0.83 or even 800/900 0.78.

out of the 73's ive been on (-300, -500 ,-800), i'd have to say i like the -300 the best. but for looks, the -800 with blended winglets gets my vote, looks espcially good in ATA colors  Smile

The least ugly 737 to me is the -800. None are as attractive as an MD80 or even a frog.

-900s (I wish those could be with winglets) and -800s.

But nothing beats the classy -200s.

I've flown on the -200, -300, -500 & -700 and have to say that the -700 is definitely my favorite. The climb to cruising altitude is noticeably quicker compared to the others.
