I want to know why the Ex. United Shuttle 737-300/500 have 3 extra inches of legroom than regular United 737's. I'm not talking about EconomyPlus, there regular economy class seats have 3 more inches than the other United 737's!

Also, you can sort out which 737's are Shuttle aircraft by looking at the Seat Map! If the aircraft has 2 seats in the last row on the left side, its a United Shuttle aircraft.

I'm pretty sure there is no extra legroom.

Seatguru.com says there is. Also, why is there less seats in the Shuttle aircraft than in regular United? Hmm... Maybe they did that to take 737's to smaller markets.

ex UA Shuttle aircraft have more seats in a higher density config then the non shuttle birds.

For instance the -300 series the configuration is F8/Y112 on the non shuttle while ex shuttle birds are 8/120. -500s have 6 more seats on ex shuttle aircraft then non.

Ok, I see what you are saying. Then I have another question, why didn't United put a third seat in that last row of ex.Shuttle planes? It's kind of nice for a pair of travelers.

Where do you see this on seatguru? I see that the -300s have 1 extra inch in Y+ on the non-Shuttle birds, but nothing otherwise.

I see that now. I just over looked it. I think I got US Market 1 confused with US Market 2. Anyway, was United Shuttle based mostly in CA?

It was indeed based in California, at both SFO and LAX.

Were there fares just as expensive as they are now?

Well, no, considering the CPI was lower then and fuel prices were a small fraction of what they are now. Shuttle offered flights as low as $19 OW between LAX and LAS.

Southwest can't even beat that!  sour  Maybe they did when Shuttle exsisted.

Actually, Southwest did offer such fares as recently as 2002/2003

I guess similar fares to WN's intra-Texas routes, DAL-HOU, etc.

The ex Shuttle aircraft have more seats as they have stripped down front and rear galleys with one less aft lavatory, along with the partition between F and Y not being a bulkhead wall but instead a curtain/partial wall.
