Can someone please explain the main differences between the two as far as range seating capacity? Also, why is the 739 not selling as well as many of the other variants?
Thanks

The -900 is longer than the -800 (that was rather obvious), but they're both limited to 189 passengers, because they both have the same emergency exit configuration (which, like the range-issue, is something that Boeing is addressing with the -900X). The main idea behind this was giving operators of two-class-configurations (or very comfortable one-class-configurations) a plane in which they can transport more people.

The -900s range is lower which, as far as I know, is a result of it's higher weight because of the longer fuselage.

As far as sales go - I guess that a lot of airlines just don't need the extra capacity in their B737 fleet... and in the case of charter-airlines or other high-density-configurations - with the plane limited to the same passenger number as the -800, the -900, with it's higher operating cost, just doesn't make sense.

727LOVER, Korean also took the 739 (one has just been leased to a Chinese LCC). I think KLM took some as well.
