"New Generation" definitely sounds better than "warmed over once again".

Punch intended!

If you go the the 737 page on Boeing.com you'll see that Boeing refers to the 737-600, 737-7, 738, and 739 as next generation 737s. So NG stands for Next Generation.

Methinks someone wants to start an Airbus/Boeing war.

What's the point? Why can't we discuss one type of plane-with no reference to the products of any other company, without some shithead doing that?

We like airbus. We like Boeing. We are plane people, no matter the manufacturer. If you are too closed-minded, shortsighted, or immature to deal with that, just pick your site: airbus.com or boeing.com, and spend your free time there. Create an e-group, or something. Just cut the irrelevant personal-bias crap. -Mark

This is a forum- place where people voice their opinions. If they like Boeing over Airbus- so be it. If they like Airbus over Boeing- that's fine with me. If people wanted to get ONLY the facts and unbiased opinions, they'd be checking out news sites right now. A vs. B is like rooting for your hometown sports team. Who cares if people pick out the flaws of the rival? As long as it's done in a respectable manner, I'm all for it.

737-NG refers to current production models 737-600, 737-700, 737-800, and 737-900. The classics are the 737-100, 737-200, 737-300, 737-400, and 737
-500.

The NG's burn less fuel, fly higher and farther, and depending on the series,
carry anywhere between 110 and 169 pax.

North America 737-NG operators:

American 737-800
Delta 737-800
Continental 737-700/800 and -900 from 2001

Doesn't NG(=New Generation) refer to those -300, -400 and -500? -600 to -900 are 'Next Generation', and I would say like Senliture, "No Good!". What a great thought! Thanks to Senliture.

You are absolutely right, "As long as it's done in a RESPECTABLE manner, I'm all for it." A couple of guys here don't do it in a respectable way (or, may be, they are OK about things like "Scarebus" too). So I totally agree with LHMark.

Closer to the topic: well, Classic is for -300 to -500, but wasn't it once for -100 and -200 (before NG appeared; yes, I mean 737, not 747)?

hush hush, I am not starting an Airbus-Boeing War, but that's just for fun for 'NG'.
Don't think too much about this wording, it really just for fun.
Actually I doon't like 737-300, -400 and -500 but I like the NG series. They look much better then -300~-500.
Again, don't think too much about the word 'NG'
