I just saw on the news that Southwest is going to order 50 737-700's. This is the airline's largest order ever. It looks like Boeing may sell more airplanes than Airbus this year afterall.

Delivery dates will probably last over the next couple of years. This is Southwest's biggest order yet. I love Southwest!! Anyone else like SWA?

I don't think so, since the news said that it was Southwest's biggest order yet, but I'm not sure.

From the Dallas Morning News...

"Southwest plans to announce within the next few weeks the largest order of new airplanes in its 29-year history. The carrier is expected to order significantly more than 50 new 737-700s from Boeing..."

Perhaps the "significantly" is due to the fact that the order will have to be for more than 63 if it is to be WN's largest order ever.

Well, if its anywhere near the 65-75 level, then Boeing sure will give Airbus something to cry about with total yearly orders, since they are currently at 188 orders, with a minimum of 65 added on that would jump to 253, and we are yet to add the unnanounced 777X orders (which my quite possibly add another 40-50) which will hopefully be announced at Farnborough, among of course, more orders!

Didn't it say at the Boeing website that Alaska is the launch customer for the 900 with 10 orders?
Anyways,
I am not sure how many older 737s that southwest has left, but I would imagine these new jets would be used to replace older ones. Can anyone tell me if Southwest is planning on expanding more in the east with the help of these new planes?

Based on Southwest's April fact sheet this is the current fleet count:
35 737-200s
194 737-300s
25 737-500s
64 737-700s
318 total...
I'd imagine the -700's will go to replacing the -200's and go towards expansion. I have an idea to toss around... would SW ever order the -800 or -900, they have many routes that could easily use the capacity. any thoughts?
