Southwest MHT To MCO 737 Type?

Thu Aug 28, 2003 9:21 pm

Anyone know which derivative 737 runs from MHT to MCO? I'm going on a family vac in October, and will be taking Southwest to Orlando. I was hoping for a new -700. I have flown on AA's -800's and they are quite nice.

Southwest usually uses the 737-3HR and use the 737-7HR to fly to LAS.
But they might switch the a/c used.
Who cares about status?

I take that flight once or twice a year. Usually it is a 300 but sometimes a 700 on the MHT side.

There are three daily MHT-MCO non-stops. The morning flight is a -700 and the afternoon and evening flights are -300s. On the return trip, the morning flight is a -300, midday is a -700 and the afternoon is a -300. These are subject to change due to swaps, weather delays, etc.

My wife is boarding the 9:10AM flight to MCO as we speak! Looked like
a 700 to me as I drove off from the airport.

And thanks for some earlier tips re: confirmation/security form. Printed it off
online last night, and she was able to get a boarding pass (group A!) from
the skycap station at 7:30!

There's was the first flight, I believe..there's a schedule change coming. My
wife called shortly after their arrival at MCO..beautiful flight, early arriving (by
about 8 minutes). Was her first flight (as well as my daughter's) on WN and
she was raving about the flight attendants and their whole routine.

I heard that MHT will be one of the first stations to get the 737 with the winglets, obviously (I would think) for the new Las Vegas and expected Phoenix service as those two runs are among the longest for Southwest. Anything from New England to those western cities would be a candidate (i.e. BDL-LAS, etc.).
