Gentlemen & ladies too....
Anyone think a carrier will eventually operate all the NG types of the 737? If some carriers can operate the whole A320 family, why not the airlines using a 737NG now? Seems like Southwest will get them all someday.
Any thoughts? Regards.

Continental already operates the 737-700 and the 737-800 and will has 15 737-900's on order. If it orders the
737-600, then it will operate all NG types. I doubt that
CO will go for the slow selling -600. The -600 is the same size as the -500 but with greater range. CO has
acquired 56 737-500's since the mid-1990's and the
serve the airline's short to medium haul route network
quite well. They don't need the -600. If anything, CO
needs more high capacity jets. The -800 and the -900
are becoming MD80 replacements.

Indian Guy > Jet Airways doesn't have any 736's, not is it planning to buy or lease, as far as I am aware. If you have other info, mail me, because I keep up a 737 production list on my website www.airlinerlist.com.
Also, DeltAirlines, I never was aware there's an ocean between EWR and ONT/OAK !
