Hi

I know that when planes that are the same major model, but have subtle differences, they are given slightly different designations. For instance, WestJet has both 737-76N's and 737-7CT's. Is there any place that lists the differences between these and other slightly different models?

Thanks,
Adam

Generally the 737-7XX means 'version 7 owned by customer XX', in this case GE Capital Aviation (GECAS) (6N) and WestJet Airlines (CT).

Quoting RichardPrice (Reply 1):

Um, the XX refers to the airline/leasing firm that the plane was built for rather than the current owner.

Ah I see! Thanks for the link. Does Airbus do something similar?
