Go to the boeing Website htey will tell you. I have heard that they feel the same when flying them. So I guess they way close to the same.

The 737-800 and 900 look to me like 707s with new wings and tail, especially since the 737 uses the 707 fuselage anyway.

No way does the 737-800 have the normal capacity of the 767-300, but those two types can come pretty close. The 737-900 will have 177 passengers in a 2-class layout, while the 767-200 carries 181 passengers ina 3-class seating arrangement. That shows just how comparatively big the new 737 will be (or how small the old 767 is, depending on how you hink about it).

Bryan said that the 737 had the same Fuslage as the 707 but I thought the 757 did? Can some one answer this. And is this only the center section?

Iain: Yes, I'm pretty sure that the 737 and 727 both use the 707's fuselage. Next time you see a 737, even a newer version, take a close look at the front fuselage section and you will see a striking 707 resembelance.
As for the 757, that aircraft has a 767 nose, simply scaled down and faired on to the 757's more narrow fuselage.

Guys, the 707, 727, 737, and 757 all share the same fuselage width eventhough the shape of the fuselage cross section is a bit different on the 757 than the others.

As for the 737-800 and 767-300, the 737-800 comes nowhere close in passenger capacity; the 737-800 is a narrow body jet with six seats in a row while the 767-300 is a wide body that is a lot longer than the 737-800 and has 7 seats in a row.

yeah, MD11 got it rite. 737, 757 and 727 share da same fuselage idea. But, strangely, 757s fuselage always seemed kinnda wider to me...
