I've wondered about this for some time now. How do the 737-800 and 737-900 stack up against the 707s with regard to passenger loads and range? At first glance, they seem to be comparable from a size perspective. Just curious if these particular '37s have the same range as the '07.

So based on that data the 707-120s were only 6 feet longer than the 738s? That seems about right---but were there not some longer stretched 707 types--nothing as long as some of the super stretch DC8s obviously but based o that picture of the 707-120B in the dimensions window it seems like a "shorter" 707.

Well this is slightly off topic, but when I was flying an Air Canada Zip 737-200, instead of the windowshade having the 737 logo mounted on top of the handle, it contained the 707 logo. Seems to me at least the windowshades between these aircraft are easily transferrable!

The 757 is an entirely different design.
The 707, 727, &737 fuselage share the same base dimensions. Even the base part number for the radome is the same.
However, the technology used in construction is markedly different. Fuselage components (stringers, wing mounts, and other structural components) are not interchangable between the various models of the aircraft and not even in 737 iterations.
The bolt-ons are very much the same items hence the window shades and other accessories. There are different fire qualifications and other things but essentially, if the part would bolt into a 707 it will probably bolt into a 737NG (seats, sidewalls, bins, lavs, galleys, etc.)

I've got to state, I was surprised to learn that this topic was moved over to this forum. Considering aviation is a hobby for me, I didn't expect anything I posted would be considered so high-brow that it would make the Tech/Ops forum.
Thanks for the follow-up. As wonderful an aircraft the '37 has been over the decades, there is just something special about the lines of the '07 with those four sleek engines hanging from wing. (Hope that wasn't too technical for you guys.)

Interesting to compare the various Boeing aircraft, however the B707-320B (advanced) aircraft had a maximum seating capacity of 189 (or with extra exits installed, 215) and with a fuel capacity in excess of 23,000 USGallons, was capable of flights of 12 hours.
A true long range aircraft.

The exterior cross section of the 707, 720, 727, 737, and 757 fuselage is 148in/3.78m
The interior cross section of the 737 all models is listed at 139.2in/3.54m. The 707, 720, and 757 is listed as 139.3in/3.54m. The 727 is listed as 140in/3.56m.
The height of the cabin varies because of the trim and OHB.
The cargo compartments are not all that different in height, at least in the fwd compartment. The fwd cargo compartment in the 707/720 is shown as 44.3in/1.13m, 727 and 757 44in/1.12m, and the 737 as 44.2in/1.12m. The rear cargo compartment isn't listed for the 707/720, the 737 is listed at 46.8in/1/19m, the 727 at 54in/1.37m, and the 757 53.9in/1.37m

As I am not qualified to talk about the 707(not even flew one also) I can't compare the two.But to compare passenger/load you have to find the operation cost /pax.I think with its newer design and efficent engines 737 NG provides better profit to the operator.
Talking about sardines you should see all economy configuration of 737800 which can accomodate 189 Y class passengers.
