Think Any Carrier Will Operate All 737NG Types?

Sun Mar 18, 2001 4:10 am

Gentlemen & ladies too....
Anyone think a carrier will eventually operate all the NG types of the 737? If some carriers can operate the whole A320 family, why not the airlines using a 737NG now? Seems like Southwest will get them all someday.
Any thoughts? Regards.

Yes, SAS operates all types avilable right now, but they have ordered the 321 instead of the 739, so they will soon loose this title.

Yep

If Continental orders the 737-600 in the future (which I can see being possible), it will be them.

If Continental decides to place an order for the 737-600, they will operate all the types of 737NG aircraft. I think they have already ordered the 737-900.

As previously stated, CO operates all NG types except for the -600. I don't see CO getting the 736 any time soon though, as their 735's are only 5-10 years old at most/

Cba is right about CO. Not only are the 735s relatively new (delivered 1994-98), but many of the routes that were once dominated by the 735 and DC-9-30 are now flown by COEX Jungle Jets.

I would think that CO could still use the 736 on thin intercontinental routes (ie EWR - ONT, EWR - OAK, etc.

I just wanted to say that SAS does not have all 737-NGs in it's fleet. The only use the -600, -700 and -800. They havn't ordered the -900.

Continental already operates the 737-700 and the 737-800 and will has 15 737-900's on order. If it orders the
737-600, then it will operate all NG types. I doubt that
CO will go for the slow selling -600. The -600 is the same size as the -500 but with greater range. CO has
acquired 56 737-500's since the mid-1990's and the
serve the airline's short to medium haul route network
quite well. They don't need the -600. If anything, CO
needs more high capacity jets. The -800 and the -900
are becoming MD80 replacements.

Jet Airways (9W) also operates all NG types except the 739, which they are planning to order for high-density routes.

Current Fleet: 734's (~10), 735(~2-3), 736(~3), 73G(~5), 738(10)

Indian Guy > Jet Airways doesn't have any 736's, not is it planning to buy or lease, as far as I am aware. If you have other info, mail me, because I keep up a 737 production list on my website www.airlinerlist.com.

Also, DeltAirlines, I never was aware there's an ocean between EWR and ONT/OAK !
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Interesting site.

I took the figures from the Jetwings magazine which they have on board. The one with me shows the 736's as well.
