Probably a 737-700. Most of Southwest's aircraft now are the 737-700 with winglets.

About 50% are -700s, 45% -300s, and 5% -500s....

2628 is normally a -700 (all of which have winglets) although that could change at the last minute...

And today was no exception. I'm surprised it's a -700 with OMA-MDW being a fairly short route. Are loads really good out of OMA? I noticed LAS flights seem to be going out pretty full, and the other cities, PHX,STL, and MDW look to be doing decent.



Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD. Return: US SJD-PHX, WN PHX-MDW-DSM

when it comes to loads, the -300 and -700 make no difference. its simply the range and where the plane is flying to next. for example OMA-MDW may continue to MCO. therefore the -700 needed on the MDW-MCO route, but flew the OMA-MDW anyway. Loads for STL are pretty good actually. All of my WN flights out of STL has been very high, id say in the 90's

Yeah, same amount of seats, and I see it continues on to HOU from MDW.

Just recently a 3rd flight was added on OMA-STL, I would imagine that is also high yield for WN. I'm surprised AA doesn't have Trans States or someone fly this like they do out of CID and DSM.

The first markets AA pulled out of were Southwest markets. STL-CLE, STL-DTW, STL-OMA, STL-OKC, etc.

OKC and TUL came back thanks to some small revenue guarantees, and STL-TUL acts as a repositioning flight for maintence purposes.

Since when can a 737-300 not fly MDW-MCO?... i flew ORD-OAK and thats 800 miles longer than ORD-MCO, i think the only WN routes that the 300 cant make are the trans cons

'902

Seemas like everytime WN moves in, another airline moves out.

Oh I did not say a -300 cannot make it. It is because of the winglets, Southwest tries to put the -700 on long routes where fuel savings is better, they would rather fly a -700 on routes like MDW-PHX, STL-MCO, MCO-PHX etc etc, even tho a -300 can do it just fine. Its about fuel savings.

continues on to HOU from MDW.

Hence the reason for the -700 flying OMA-MDW, it is continuing onto a longer flight segments where they want the -700 to fly as I said above because it has better fuel savings, long route.

Quoting Iowaman (Reply 7):
Just recently a 3rd flight was added on OMA-STL, I would imagine that is also high yield for WN.

I heard the reason for such was connecting purposes at STL, therefore adding two daily STL-MCO for a total of 5. All for connecting purposes. Yield may be good, and generally is...Loads are another thing of course.

Actually, if you look at the eppley airfield website, the flight goes from Omaha to Midway to Houston. I'm sorry for the confusion, I probably should have said SERIES instead of TYPE.

Thanks,

On August 11, 2005, it will be a 737-7H4 per Airwise.com. If you are lucky, maybe you will get "Maryland One". There is about a 1 in 300 chance...
