There are a few SouthWest -300 pictures in the database from this year only. I'm flying to MCO soon and I don't want to fly on -300.
I have flown on both the 700 and 300 last Friday BDL
and 300 MCO
...other than the winglets, there is no difference between the planes...they both fly very smooth (although a 20 minute short hop MCO
is no way to test the performance of a 300!)...but there really is no difference...the only real difference is the 500 which I believe still has rear facing seats.
to answer your origional question, there really is no way to know. The only flights that you know are in a 700 are the transcons. The other flights are all hit or miss...however, chances are it is a 700 because it can perform better at a higher altitude...on the other hand, if you fly on a short hop, you will probably be on a 300 because the extra performance is not needed. They both have the range, so it is really up in the air until the day of the flight.
P.S. I was going to do my BDL
on Monday, but if you are leaving this weekend, I'll post it early.
