WN has no reason to fly anything but 737's. Keeps maint. costs way down, crew training way down, parts costs way down, service costs way down. On top of that, it fills all their needs and makes them a BOATLOAD of money ever damn day. They fly them full and often. The question might be better asked if they will ever for gor 736 or 738.

No idea on UA 757, but I assume not.

This topic was dicussed awhile back. Someone told me that Southwest was going to order the 763. I didn't really believe it because like BlatantEcho it keeps operationg costs down.I took the liberty of writing to southwest after i heard this. Thier response was that they were still flying the 737 and had no plans in the near future to by widebody aircraft. Along with that they sent me a saftety card, a blowup model or the Shamu paint schemme and much more.Also i do belive that united flys thier 757 internationally probably to mexico and the bahama's.So i hoped i helped answer your question.
