Well, it's more a did operate than does operate but I can vouch for subbing the usual B737-800 on BEY prior to dropping the route 3 years ago this Summer.

I know the B739 is sometimes sent to LHR. I've also been on a 739 between AMS-MAN/ARN.

I think they are used for high density routes, like SVO, ARN, BCN, LED, LHR etc. Does KL plan to add more to their fleet?

One of the morning departures to CDG is a 73J as well.

Doubt it. They have non-ER 900's, and these cannot be ordered with Boeing any more. Maybe if they can pick up some cheap ones on the second hand market, but their recent orders were for -700's, and I expect the last remaining 733's and 734's to be replaced by 73G's and 73H's.

KL uses the B739 almost on every B737 route when demand is there. KL can shuffle around easily with their wide B737 fleet, and is very flexible to make most out of the routes.

But as you see, ARN is also done  Wink There is hope for you for your upcoming trip  Smile

Judging by the fact that KL opted for the 737-700 I think it is fair to say they are not so much looking into increasing the size of their European aircraft.

Is there a website that shows which specific 737 model is operated or scheduled too for each flight, i.e., flightstats.com etc..? I notice on Skyteam's website it always just shows "737". Is this because they swap them around on each segment frequently?

Basically yes, that's why. Although, KLM.com reservations show a specified subtype, it learned me already that this changes very frequently again for the same flight.
KLM really shuffles around with their B737's... which enables them a flexible operation.

Thanks Eric. This is very similar to what MX does with their Airbuses and I'm sure many other's. MX will run a 318 one day, a 319, and a 320 on LAX-GDL as an example consecutively on a certain flight then the next week, it could be 4 319s, a 320, and a 318 on the day with the lightest loads.

I believe AF does this as well but tries to publish what they will be utilizing as does LH. LH will use the designation "EQV" if it changes very often.

Yes, they do - they also match loads to aircraft size - which adds significant flexibility to the operation. This is the principal benefit of a standardised short haul fleet with one manufacturer - it becomes easy to change aircraft.
