If you were to start an airline out of Heathrow with flights into Europe, which aircraft would you choose and why?

I would choose the 737-400 as my aircraft ... Maybe the 700 too

It's easy to choose a plane but it seems to be not so easy to explain why that plane.

I would like to know the real differences between the planes you refer but the only thing I read is about beauty or about engines that are bigger or smaller

Beauty or nice colours don't saves money, what saves money is fuel comsumption, maintenance, load factor, ticket prices, airport taxes, ground handling, routes taxes, slots taxes, employes payments, to be better than competition, new ideas, etc, etc.

I don't know what plane would I choose. I like both the 737 and A320 and I'm not an expert on this matter.

Maybe this will begin another "hot" discussion (as I like) but I don't care, It's what I think.

Lufthansa, when they began their fleet renewal, discovered that the 737NG could not be flown on the typical Luftansa flight, the distance of the typical flight could not be flown profitably with the 737NG because of the new larger wing which was designed for long distance flights.

Yes

That's exactly the kind of things that decides the airlines choices and nobody talks about here.

You get my point, thanks
