What do you all know about the 737-900's performance? Is it turning out to be a cost-effective airplane, or is it "too much airplane for the wing?" I've seen a few CO 739's recently at BWI and CLE, and was wondering.
It seems to me that an airline that wants to keep family commonality, but wants something bigger than the 738, might find the 739 an attractive option instead of adding a whole new family with the 757 (especially if their business plan favors having 10-15 fewer seats). Does the 739 come close to the 757's excellent performance?
