Just for sentiment's sake  Big grin -

This week, on December 8, 1996, the very first 737NG was rolled out in Renton. Line number 27841 became N737X, and after certification, it was delivered to Southwest Airlines as N707SW. The aircraft still serves today, and was recently retrofitted with the Aviation Partners Blended Winglets.

To date, the 737NG family has sold 2,367 737-600/700/800/900 and BBJ/BBJ2 types, and 1,607 have been delivered. Of the delivered aircraft, none have been written off in hull lost accidents nor have any fatal accidents occurred.

Happy 8th Birthday 737NG-

It's quite impressive that Boeing has been able to sell 2,367 units of the NG in just eight years!

Then again, it's equally impressive that A320 family (which if am not mistaken predates the 737NG by 8 years) is still able to hold its own against the 737NG.



Admit it, you could care less about the continent Africa!

The 737NG wasn't a complete overhaul of the 737 design, so the A320 has an edge in some features, although it isn't clear how important those are for a short-haul narrow body. Perhaps the biggest advantage for the A320 may be in whether it's easier/cheaper to manufacture than the 737NG. It also didn't hurt that Airbus had a pricing advantage as a result of a weak euro and very strong dollar between 1997 and 2002.

I love the 737NG although I find them a little uncomfortable when full. They are a lovely aircraft and look stunning in the BWIA livery so happy birthday 737NG

Isn't that "built FORD tough"???

Hooray for the home team.
I like the NG737s a lot. It surprised me at first, because I don't particularly care for the 3/4/500's.

I didn't realize they had such a goo dsafety record. Kinda like the 777. Let's hope things stay that way!

Merry Christmas to all.
