I am flying tomorrow, and I know that the equipment is going to be a 737. I looked up the flight information, and it displayed 73G...I was wondering if anyone knew which of the 737's it is.

This is Southwest Airlines, by the way. I've never been on them before!

It's a 737-700.

Couldn't give "737" as it was taken up by the original 737-200.

That's right. The 73G code is assigned to the 737-700 Series aircraft so that people don't get confused. 738 obviously means 737-800 but 737 doesn't mean 737-700, it can be any 737. I think the letter G was chosen because G stands for Generation, coming from Next Generation. Continental, Southwest and Alaska have 737-700's.

"G" was chosen because it is the 7th letter in the alphabet replacing the second 7 in 737...
