Just curious as to what version of the 737 I can expect to fly on on an upcoming PHL - SAN non-stop.

Most likely a 737-700...

Could a 737 300 or 500 even make that distance?

733s fly MSY-LAX all the time at 1451nm, and could likely fly PHL-SAN restricted. WN, however, does not like to offload anything from a plane, chosing to fly to alternates if they have to be restricted, so it is 100% you are getting a 73G

I think the 735 and 733 can do the transcon but with restriction. More than likely it'll be a 737-700.

PHL-SAN has to be almost twice as far as MSY-LAX. I'm not sure a 300 could do it empty.

a 73G is a 737-700--didn't US operate transcons with 733s before the A32Xs came online?

A 73G is a 737-700. Wouldn't do anyone much good to abbreviate it as "737".  Laugh out loud

I thought those were the Piedmont 400s

It is not even close to twice as far. MSY-LAX is almost 1500nm, PHL-SAN is about 2000nm. Beyond that, the 737 long had range that exceeded its normal mission. A 733 may not be the most economic plane to run PHL-SAN, but it would not be anywhere close to empty.

>I thought those were the Piedmont 400s<

Which have a shorter range than the -300

PHL-SAN is 2369
MSY-LAX is 1671

My bet is that unless there is an equpiment problem you'll be on a 73G.

The flight's going to be a 73G, no question. Yes yes, airlines in the past have indeed scheduled Classics on longer midcon and transcon routes, but Southwest simply doesn't do that. You can bet that any route this long will be operated by a 73G.

Also a quick check of schedules shows that the current equipment on PHL-SAN is a 73G.

It looks like the longest route that the 733 flies is LAX-BNA (1797 miles)according to their schedule.

The longest route on a 737 that i have flown, classic 737 that is is United's ORD-OAK which was in summer 2001 a 737-300, 1836 miles, and it looked like it made it just fine

How is the US A321 far more comfortable than the WN 73G? Have you seen the new Southwest interiors? I think they beat US Airbii and Boeing planes hands down as far as coach is concerned. I'm not a huge fan of Southwest, but they did a heck of a job with the new interiors.

US was routing me through charlotte, and it cost an extra $80 for two peple.

WN is non-stop and cheaper. wonder why they're going to completely dominate PHL in no time at all?

It will be a 737-700 with the amount of freight and mail we put on that flight a 500 or 300 would need to make a fuel stop in AMA..wns

Yeah--the new interiors on Southwest are some of the most comfortable I've been in. The one advantage the 321 has is IFE--but I would probably take WN on this route if my DVD player could last.

SWA's new 73G's with the new leather seats are pretty comfy, plus if it saves you $80 and some time with layovers-you made the right choice. Plus you get to look at those amazing winglets.


I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning.

I was on 5 WN flights last week the new interiors seem to have 33 inch seat pitch. I am 6'2" and had plenty of leg room. The 700's are very comfortable and quiet. plus the non-stop is way better than going through a connection.
