Okay, can someone help me understand this...??

What is the difference between the Boeing 737-300 and the 737-500???
What do those numbers mean (300, 500, 700, etc.)???

Why is the 737-300 longer than the 737-500, when the 737-400 is longer than the 737-300??? This is so confusing. But could be interesting tho. Let me know.

-200, -300, -800, etc. is just the series designator. The -200 series, for example, are older generation models, while the -800 series is a Next Generation model.

so it really doesn't have anything to do with size?

It has to do when it came out, really.

the -100 was the original 737. Then came the venerable -200. The -300 was next, followed by a stretched -400 and a shrunken -500.

The 737s are generally classified in three generations:

"Original". First flight 1967.
737-100 (baseline)
737-200 (stretch)

"Classic" with the new engines. First flight 1984.
737-300 (baseline)
737-400 (stretch)
737-500 (shrink)

"Next Generation" with new wing, even newer engines, new avionics... First flight 1997.
737-600 (shrink)
737-700 (baseline)
737-800 (stretch)
737-900 (streeetch)
737-900ER (proposed 900 with longer range).


Size does matter  Big grin when it comes to the series designator, but the 737 has been around for so long and through so many permutations that look and feel similar that it easily gets confusing. The reason that the Classic shrink (500) has a higher sequence number than the 300 and 400 is, IIRC, that it was not originally envisioned as part of the program.

Well, sometimes it has to do with size, and other times not.
the -200 is longer than the -100, the -300 is longer than the -200, and the -400 is longer than the -300. Of course time of launch is the real determent. the -500 is basically a -200 replacement. The -6/7/800 were created with in short order of each other, so it was sensible to label them in size order. The -600 is the NG version of the -500, the -700 corresponds to the -300. The -800 is larger than the -400. The -900 came even later and is the longest of all. Boeing has typically numbered their airplanes in the order in which the program was started, i.e the 757 was started before the 767 even though the 767 went into service first. This may change with the 7E7 which depending on the version that comes out first may have a -300 and then a -200, or some such.

And to further add to the confusion...

Although you rarely see it outside enthusiast environments like A.net, the last two digits (00) are used for customer code (Boeing) and for engine type/airframe subvariant (Airbus). For example, Lufthansa is "30" at Boeing, so their 747-400s are actually 747-430s.

Confused yet?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Dont feel bad - I heard this - about 747s
xxx
747-100 is small (as small as 747SP, did not say)
747-200 is bigger
747-400 is biggest
xxx
757 is bigger than 747 (bigger number)
767 is bigger than 757
777 is bigger than 767...
xxx
Manufacturers: please use "bigger numbers" for "bigger airplanes".
That is the general public I.Q. -
xxx
So Mr. Airbus, please note - 300, 310, 320, 330, 340, 380...
The 300 is small, then 310 bigger, and 320 even bigger, etc...
xxx
So nice that it comes from people that know that -
100 is less than 200, which is less than 300...
And "they" even have to use their fingers, when over three...

Skipper, did you make it your mission to make me laugh uproariously today. If so, you're doing a good job Big grin

Maybe the SP did not sell too well because it was hard to classify in the mind of your 'General Public'. "What, no number?"

I can see how this is confusing, especially for the 737. The number means both fuselage length, generation type, and customer. I'll try to consolidate what everyone has said into one summary.

Take this Southwest 737... Boeing 737-7H4

  • Boeing 737-7H4 indicates that the aircraft is a Boeing 737

  • Boeing 737-7H4 indicates this 737 is a -700 model

  • Boeing 737-7H4 indicates the customer is Southwest Airlines


  • Okay, so there have been 9 models of the 737 over time-

    First Generation 1965-1987
    Boeing 737-100, 110 passengers, 30 ordered
    Boeing 737-200, 119-130 passengers, 991 ordered

    Second Generation 1981-1999
    Boeing 737-300, 149 passengers, 1113 ordered
    Boeing 737-400, 168 passengers, 486 ordered
    Boeing 737-500, 138 passengers, 389 ordered

    Third Generation 1993-Today
    Boeing 737-600, 138 passengers, 71 ordered
    Boeing 737-700, 149 passengers, 940 ordered
    Boeing 737-800, 168 passengers, 1109 ordered
    Boeing 737-900, 177 passengers, 57 ordered

    Improvements from generation to generation include upgraded engines, upgraded avionics, wing improvements, ext. More about that can be found on Boeing's website.

    The last two numbers of letters of the aircraft type confuse the most people, but doing a photo search will show you that the ending has to do with customer not a major type difference.

    Hope that helps

    OHHHHHHH!!!!

    (I've seen the light!!!) lol

    See, that was what I was just about to ask....'WHAT DOES THE 5H4 MEAN??"

    Okay, now this is much easier for me to understand. I was always wondering why Southwest had H4 at the end of their model numbers and why Lufthansa had 747-430 at the end. I was like "does a certain airline have a model which is bigger than all others?"

    This is soooo cool!!!! Thank you to all of you who have contributed to answering. I now clearly understand and am no longer confused!!!

    THANX A TON!!!

    So was the -900 the one that is so long that it looks like a pencil almost? I remember seeing an AS once that was wow, really long.

    Don't forget that Airbus number differently. As they should. They're European  Big grin

    At the risk of making a very long post, here is a nice list for you. Airbus first (alphabetical, don't read anything into it). I probably stole it off some old post.



    AIRBUS

    1st digit : version

    2nd digit : engine manufacturer :

    0 = General Electric
    1 = CFM International
    2 = Pratt and Whitney
    3 = IAE (International Aero Engines)
    4 = Rolls Royce
    6 = Alliance (for the A380)

    3rd digit : engine type (depends on the aircraft model) :

    A300
    -101 = CF6-50C
    -103/203 = CF6-50C2
    -120/220 = JT9D-59A
    -601 = CF6-80C2A1
    -603 = CF6-80C2A3
    -605 = CF6-80C2A5
    -608 = CF6-80C2A8
    -620 = JT9D-7R4H1
    -622 = PW4158

    A310
    -203 = CF6-80A3
    -204/304 = CF6-80C2A2
    -222/322 = JT9D-7R4E1
    -308 = CF6-80C2A8
    -324 = 4152
    -325 = 4156A

    A318
    -111 = CFM56-5B8/P
    -112 = CFM56-5B9/P
    -121 = PW6122
    -122 = PW6124

    A319
    -111 = CFM56-5B5/P
    -112 = CFM56-5B6/P
    -113 = CFM56-5A4
    -114 = CFM56-5A5
    -115 = CFM56-5B7/P
    -131 = IAE V2522-A5
    -132 = IAE V2524-A5
    -133 = IAE V2527M-A5

    A320
    -111/211 = CFM56-5A1
    -131/231 = IAEV2500-A1
    -212 = CFM56-5A3
    -214 = CFM56-5B4/P
    -232 = IAEV2527-A5
    -233 = IAEV2527E-A5

    A321
    -111 = CFM56-5B1
    -112 = CFM56-5B2
    -131 = IAEV2530-A5
    -211 = CFM56-5B3/P
    -231 = IAEV2533-A5
    -232 = IAEV2530-A5

    A330
    -202 = CF6-80E1A4
    -203 = CF6-80E1A3
    -223/323 = PW4168A
    -243/343 = Trent 772-B60
    -301 = CF6-80E1A2
    -321 = PW4164
    -322 = PW4168
    -341 = Trent 768-60
    -342 = Trent 772-60

    A340
    -211/311 = CFM56-5C2
    -212/312 = CFM56-5C3
    -213/313 = CFM56-5C4
    -541 = Trent 553-61
    -642 = Trent 556-61

    A380
    -841 = Trent 970
    -861 = GP 7270


    Note that this nomenclature does NOT apply to early versions of the A300 (versions B1, B2-1C, B2K-3C and SA)">B4-2C), all powered by GE CF6-50C2R.

    For the A300-600, the nomenclatures SA)">B4 (passenger), C4 (combi) and F4 (freighter) are still used.

    You will also see the following codes :

    CJ = Corporate Jet (A319)
    E = Extended range (A319CJ, A330 and A340)
    ET = Extended twin (ETOPS, for the A310 only)
    F = Freighter
    R = Extended range (A300-600)
    ST = Super transporter (only A300-600ST "Beluga")

    Amhilde, I am in agreement with you that the 739 is long.

    However, if you want to see a plane that is really a pencil, check out the 753. The effects are especially exaggerated because it is a narrowbody. I have flown on a CO 753 from EWR-PBI - the aisle just goes on, and on, and on, and on. It takes the F/A's a good thirty seconds to walk from the back to the front at a fast pace.

    Getting off topic of course but my colleague said he was flying "one of those... ehm... tubes" from Stockholm to Dublin. Turns out he was flying what I see as the ultimate flying pencil, the ERJ-145.

    On a side note, it took two F/A's with a drink cart almost the entire 2 hour flight to do one beverage service down the length of the plane.
