Southwest currently operates 405 Boeing 737 jets (as of June 30, 2004).

TYPE NUMBER SEATS
737-200 18 122
737-300 194 137
737-500 25 122
737-700* 168 137

The Company's fleet has an average age of about 9.5 years.
The average aircraft trip length is 571 miles with an average duration of about one and one-half hours for 2003.
Southwest aircraft fly an average of about 7 flights per day, or about 12 hours per day.
Southwest was the launch customer for the Boeing 737-700 in 1997. Southwest was also a launch customer for the Boeing 737-500 and -300 series aircraft.
Southwest is updating its traditional gold, red and orange paint scheme by adding canyon blue. All new aircraft will have the updated colors and interior. Existing aircraft will be retrofitted over time.
*Performance-enhancing Blended Winglets are being installed on the current and future fleet of 737-700s.

What routes is the Southwest 737-700 typicaly used on? I dont see it very often here at PDX but it always operates the PDX-ABQ-TPA flight.

Also can anyone give me a real schedule for the day in the life of a SWA aircraft? I am curious as to how much these SW planes travel.

I can say that here in PHL, we get a ton of -700s. It's interesting, I've see a bunch of -700s with winglets in the old colors. How many -700s in old colors have winglets?

What was the maximum number of -200s that WN had at any one time?

IIRC, it was 49.. There were 46, and then for a short time in the 1980s, 3 others ("The Three Little Pigs") were leased from another airline, thus totaling 49. They were returned, and we went back to 46.

I'm doing this from memory--don't quote me...  Big grin

I think Southwest flight# 2193 ONT-OAK-PDX-BOI is operated by a -700.

How many -700s in old colors have winglets?

This one took a bit of research. But the answer is 42. The plan is for all -700's to have winglets installed by 1Q 2005. The first plane in the Classic livery to get winglets was this one:

I am very surprised at just how quickly WN is installing the winglets on their -700 fleet.

No. GB is a tribute to Gary Baron who was a Chief Operating Officer for Southwest for many years. The reason that this aircraft was the first one to get winglets is simply because it was due to have its 5Y (five year) check and the winglet mod was added to the work package to minimize "down time".

I wanted to see how the D70 was working out for you...

I like it a LOT. I did some shooting with it last week and haven't had time to sort through everything. But so far, I like the results. The only bad thing is that I've been shooting in RAW mode and it takes longer for the pictures to load in Photoshop and the Nikon software is basically unusable on my laptop.

If I counted this all corectly PDX gets:

9 WN 737-700's a day

5 WN 737-500's a day

21 WN 737-300's a day

I would still like to know when Silver One or New Mexico One or Nevada One will be here at PDX. Anyone know any of the flights they operated today?
