I'm flying on Southwest airlines on a trip from Oakland to Las Vegas and back in the summer, whilst I'm in San Francisco on my holidays from Ireland. I presume, I'll be flying on a 737 aircraft, but does anyone know what type of 737, Southwest uses on flights from Oakland. I have the flight numbers already, and southwest.com, doesn't give the type of aircraft. Anyone know any site where I could find this information.
Secondly, what are Southwest like to fly with. Are they on the same standard as Ryanair back home!!!!

I'll leave it to the WN wonks to tell you which equipment might operate the flight.

But, what I can tell you, is that Southwest has uncompromising standards of maintenance, and is among the most selective in pilot hiring. Their employees are, as a group, fun and professional, and you'll ikely enjoy the trip very much.

Have a good time!

Actually Southwest changes their equipment types on routes quite frequently. I dont know about west coast routes but I have flown JAX-FLL-JAX twice and every single flight was on different equipment then what my reservations said.

Called a buddy of mine, he said that out of today's 10 scheduled OAK-LAS flights, there's one 737-500, five 737-300s, and four 737-700s, no 737-200s scheduled at all. These are always subject to change, but I was told that flights 1422 and 1758 will almost always be -700s, since the flights continue on LAS-BHM and LAS-MDW, respectively, and the better performance of the -700 is needed on those flights.

Thanks for that information OPNLguy. By the way, I'm flying from Dublin to San Francisco with Delta Airlines. I'm flying out through Atlanta and back through JFK. So must likely, I'll be flying from Dublin to Atlanta on a Boeing 777, and the rest of the flights will be on Boeing 767 300's. Whats Delta's B777's like to fly economy. What are the B763's like on international and transcontinental flights. Much appreciated.

I have friends that work at Southwest based in San Diego airport CA.

They are a very smart airline, their colour scheme on their aircraft is very sickly!

On board, you will have no seat allocation, its like a coach where-ever you can find a seat, there is no meal/food maybe a few snacks chips(crisps) and a few drinks not sure if alchoholic.

But a good service punctual and very friendly!!!!

Happy flying
