Very sad!!! I use to enjoy looking and hearing the sight of a 737 across all airlines but these days every small plane is a airbus a318/19/20..

I know that LH sends 737 and malev but is there anymore..

Thanks

Yes...AF sends its 737 (along with A321)....I was fortunate to fly from LHR-CDG on an AF 737...I think it was a 737-400

KL, MA, and LO also fly their 737's to LHR also.

Who is operating 737s these days? I know it is doing at least as well as the A320, but it always seems airlines are operating A320s. Where do you find lots of 737s other than BFI?

US airlines have a huge number of them- Southwest, AA, Delta, Continental, Alaska, ect. Also, a large portion of the recent orders have gone to China, which already operates vast numbers of 737s, along with Japanese airlines... basically, if LHR actually does lack in 737s, it is the exception, not the norm. Most airports that I have seen are pretty evenly mixed in terms of A319/20's and 737's.

Just look a bit north, you get as many of them as you want at Stansted. All completely identical.

Polkovo also started operating 737-500 instead of Tu-154 this winter LED-LHR-LED every saturday.



When in doubt give it a clout

Thanks guys..

Didn't know there so many of them still come...
Probably because BA got rid of theirs at lhr that's why we don't see many here

LOL @ Cloudyapple.

I think reports of the 737's demise at LHR may have been somewhat exaggerated. I make it that there are more 737 operators at LHR recently than A32X operators.

Recent LHR 737 operators OTTOMH.

Lufthansa
BMI
Estonian Air
Lithuanian
Air France
Air Algerie
JAT
Macedonian
KTHY
Aer Lingus
KLM
Air Malta
Malev
LOT
CSA Czech
Olympic
SAS
Air Baltic
Luxair
Taro
Turkish
Maersk Air
RAM Royal Air Maroc
Tunisair
Pulkovo

Against A32X series operators.

BA
Air France
BMI
Iberia
MEA
Swiss
Lufthansa
Austrian
SAS
Finnair
TAP
KTHY
CSA Czech
Cyprus
Syrian
Aeroflot
Alitalia
SN Brussels
Royal Jordanian
Egyptair
Libyan Arab

Fair research, Chris, but the mix still seems decidely in favour of the A32S. I would imagine operators like LH and EI are phasing out their 737s and so eventually they will be just A32S operators and BA on the A32S list needs to be listed ten times for proper weighting.

Mostly LCCs and charter airlines in Europe; KL, SK, MA and LO are other legacies (other than LH) that operate them. IIRC, AF still has a few as well.

Agree with you Glom - i'd be willing to bet that maybe a quarter of the traffic at LHR overall is made up of BA A32Xs.

Yes, 737s are definitely in the minority at LHR these days.

However, a short trip to LGW will help to restore the balance.  yes
