Methinks someone wants to start an Airbus/Boeing war.
What's the point? Why can't we discuss one type of plane-with no reference to the products of any other company, without some shithead doing that?
We like airbus. We like Boeing. We are plane people, no matter the manufacturer. If you are too closed-minded, shortsighted, or immature to deal with that, just pick your site: airbus.com or boeing.com, and spend your free time there. Create an e-group, or something. Just cut the irrelevant personal-bias crap. -Mark

This is a forum- place where people voice their opinions. If they like Boeing over Airbus- so be it. If they like Airbus over Boeing- that's fine with me. If people wanted to get ONLY the facts and unbiased opinions, they'd be checking out news sites right now. A vs. B is like rooting for your hometown sports team. Who cares if people pick out the flaws of the rival? As long as it's done in a respectable manner, I'm all for it.

You are absolutely right, "As long as it's done in a RESPECTABLE manner, I'm all for it." A couple of guys here don't do it in a respectable way (or, may be, they are OK about things like "Scarebus" too). So I totally agree with LHMark.
Closer to the topic: well, Classic is for -300 to -500, but wasn't it once for -100 and -200 (before NG appeared; yes, I mean 737, not 747)?

hush hush, I am not starting an Airbus-Boeing War, but that's just for fun for 'NG'.
Don't think too much about this wording, it really just for fun.
Actually I doon't like 737-300, -400 and -500 but I like the NG series. They look much better then -300~-500.
Again, don't think too much about the word 'NG'
