He asked about the old generation compared to the new generation. Why should there be any difference of you take two airplanes with the SAME length???
It's all about size!
Please re-read my initial post SetJet.
I can't really make an answer for what you have just said because It doesnt relate to my question. I can only say a statement in regards to your words.
That is: I did not ask "about the old generation compared to the new generation." I asked how long it takes to repaint (or Paint) a 737 aircraft.
I used the examples of the different versions to get a more accurate and varied answer.
Somehow you think that I said the 737-200 is the same size as the 737-800 (by length/chord/w-span, etc)
and there is no difference in time it takes to paint these two versions of the same type.
