Well, I can surely say that it is a 737 :-)

In other words, Southwest only has 737s in it's fleet, no other type.

The only type in the WN fleet which is capable of flying this route without weight penalty is the 737-700. A 737-300 could fly it, but would most likely need to have a weight restriction.

Of course it's a Boeing 737!
You know very well that Southwest flies nothing but 737's. The question must be which 737 it is. I think it's a 737-700.

Also, Southwest has 3 things noticable on it. You'll see the number 1 in a heart on the plane, signifing it was rated #1 by customrers who flew it. Another is that it is making a hub of BWI, but still named SOUTHWEST, when MD is in the East! And last but not least, it is one of the few airlines which does not have its name printed on the fusalage, instead it is on the tale. enjouy your flight.

I meant what kind of 737. I guess it is a 700 or 800. in late march southwest will begin its first service to New York at Lond Island/Mcarthur (ISP) at their website they say an "Ultra quiet" 737-700 will be used on this route.
