Replying to another thread got me thinking about the B737-1000. All the 737 models have three letter codes 737 733 734 735 736 73G 738 739, so what happens with the next model, will they it be coded as a 730 ???

And what happens, if the 737 has yet more derivatives in the far off, like B737-1100, B737-1200 etc, what will we code these - with letters (like some of the 747 models 74M, 74E etc), or will we call the next series of 737s - 787s ???

Any comments ???

I had a meeting with a Boeing rep just recently and we discussed just this subject.
He doubts very much that the present 737 fuselage can be extended much more - 737-900 will be most probably the end with the extension. So the 737-1000 is not very likely to come . . . but you never know...

HLF-MD11 - point taken regarding the "stretch", BUT the 736 and 73G are really new versions of the 737-300 and 737-100. What I'm saying is for example, what if the -1100 and -1200 are going to be updated versions of the 737-400 and 737-500.

I have no doubt we will see further versions of the 737 but none as long as the -900.

And while we are on the subject of 737s, why is the -600 such a slow seller ???

From what I've heard, the -900 is the last derivative. While the 737 is a fine jet which has served Boeing and the airlines who have used it very well, it's still a basic design that came out in 1966, and I think that they've done all they can with it. Boeing is expected to announce an all-new plane in this category in the next few years.

Cfalk - If I was the CEO of Boeing, hell after selling well over 3,000 of the buggers I'd want to keep the tooling on the line as it is, If a customer came to me wanting to replace his 737-400s, I'd want to offer him a newer version of that model rather than tool up for an unknown.

The numbers speak for themselves - the 737 is the most popular aircraft in the market, why change it - just keep on improving the little bugger.

What you guys don't seem to know is that

The 737-500 is the 737-600NG

The 737-300 is the 737-700NG

The 737-400 is the 737-800NG

And the 737-900 is a all new model of the 737

Actually, I read in Aviation Daily yesterday that there are studies inderway on the 737-900X. European charter companies are said to be "very interested" in this aircraft. I don't understand it though, if Boeing stretches the fuselage anymore, there are getting into 757 territory. Why don't these charter companies look at the 757? Go figure.

Oops, neglected to mention that the 900X would be further stretch of the 900, seating about 200.

Regards.

The 757 is a VERY expensive aeroplane compared to the cost of any further stretched 737.

To seat more passengers on the 737, you are going to need a longer fuselage, which means a taller landing gear to reduce the risk of tailstrikes, more powerful engines, a larger wing area with bigger fuel tanks to maintain transcontinental range, more emergency exits to allow for increased passenger seating (the -800 and -900 are both certified for a maximum of 189 passengers, despite the fact that the -900 is longer), and possibly different aerodynamics to account for all the stretches and modifications made, which will result in the FAA probably demanding a complete test program for the aircraft. And all that aside, wouldn't it be one hell of an ugly plane?

If there ever is a 737-1000, which I doubt, it will only be improved (not stretched) versions of the NG fleet.

Wrong - The '900x' would have an additional fuselage door (emergency exit) on each side ala the A321. The 900x would have the same length as the -900.

The current 737-900 COULD hold over 200 passengers, but currently the four fuselage doors on the 737-900 dictate a maximum passenger load of 189 passengers due to emergency evacuation requirements.

Having those extra doors would allow the 737-900x to carry over 200 passengers. This is why the A321 is quite popular with European charter outfits.

I think that keeping the 737 going would be the same as keeping the 727 going. The 787 or 797 would probably be a replacement for the 737 if they ever came out.

Any further stretch of the 737 would make it a 757...the 737-900 is 146 ft. long I think, and the 752 is 155 ft. long...only 9 ft difference...

I could see the 737-1000, should it exist, being ultra small, almost an RJ, smaller than a 732 or 733...to compete with the A318...just speculation

AKelley728, my apologies, I am aware of that, and I guess the context of my post hints that I was not. What I was trying to put across is that to stretch the 737, you'd need a large number of modifications and such to make it certifiable. And the 737 is all about commonality, and if there were so many more additions to the 737, a parts store for the -900X would be like adding a new type to the fleet, with the need for spare engines, landing gear, emergency exits, tailskids, etc., that would not be common with the standard 737NG.

AKelley728,

You are correct. I read the article wrong. It indeed would NOT be a stretch, but an strengthening of the existing -900 fuselage, wing and landing gear. Then airlines would not be limited to 189 passengers which both the -800 & -900 are restricted to.

Regards

Actually, the 735 was originally the 737-1000. Strange, huh? since it is in the same class as 733 and 734 that came before it.
