Answer by number - take your pick unless you know them all! THANKS IN ADVANCE!
1) What happened to the 737-100?
Why did a 6 foot change to the -200 make such a difference?
What was the -200's big advantage?
2) Why did the 757 start the no-100 era?
Why were 757s, 767s, and 777s, all produced starting with -200?
3) How long (serious, backed estimates, please) will the 747-100 be in service with airlines?
4) With current orders standing (none cancelled, no new ones placed) when will the last 747 roll off the line?
5) Given that they are now out of production aside from the Next Generations, what was the grand total of 737s (series -100 through -500) produced in the Original and Classic eras?
6) How many 767-200s are still on order; undelivered?7) What airlines have ordered the 767-400ER (latest news - if there is any).
8) How many 727-100s were produced?
How many are still in use?;
with winglets?
9) How much space did the straight stair case on the 747-300 really save over the -200?
10) What does a 6 or 8 foot tall strip of metal at the end of a wing do to increase performance (winglet)?
11) Is there a website where I can find fleet status as suggested herein (number of ships, registries, service/histories)?
12) Why was the L-1011 started as the single digit -1, then the double digit -50, then the triple digit mod.s -250, -500, etc.?
12a) Somewhat disconnected but still worth asking: Does anyone know where I can find L-1011-500s for FS98?;
747s worth the download time?

Which of the following is NOT a jetliner:
A. 727-200
B. A300

Many of the questions you have posed have already been discussed during previous posts. I suggest you check the archives.

Here's at least one answer for you:
There are currently 10 unfulfilled orders for the 767-200ER, all Continental. The first one will be delivered in October.
Continental also has 26 -400ERs on order, Delta has 21, GE Capital has 1, and Kenya Airways just ordered 3 at the beginning of the month. Hope this helps a little.

1. The 737-200 had better range, advanced avionics and offered a few more seats, that's why. Only 30 737-100s were made.

2. The -100 designation, I believe was changed to a prototype designation; only the prototypes would have the -100 affixed to it.

3. I'd think the time is very near now, likely by the end of 2000 or in early 2001.

4. I don't really know, but it must take at least 3-4 months to make a 747-400. The 747 line is expected to see airline service until the 2030s.

5. About 3,022.
737-100: 30
737-200: 1,112
737-300: 1,114
737-400: 486
737-500: ~280

6-9: You might want to check out Boeing's commercial airplane website at
You might be able to find the answers there.

10. The winglets were supposed to help increase range by making the a/c like the 747-400 more stable, increasing the fuel efficiency, but they haven't made much difference - the difference is only apparent over extremely long routes like from LHR to HKG. Boeing found the straked wingtips(they are not true winglets) to be more benficial, so they put them on the 767-400 and the 777X.
11. and 12. I wish I knew, but I'm no Albert Einstein!

Hope that helps.
