What's Different Between BBJ And 737-700ER?

Sun Dec 10, 2006 2:44 am

Out of curiosity, is there any mechanical difference between the Boeing Business Jet and the recently launched 737-700ER?

Is it simply a re-branding of the same aircraft?

DfwRevolution:

Yes. They are almost identical. Think about it — what features do you need to make a regular 737-700 into a 737-700ER? These are precisely the same features that were added to the BBJ1.

Added fuel tanks and I think the 738 landing gear and wings. I was trying to find definite information.

Quoting ChiGB1973 (Reply 2):

How is that any different than the existing BBJ?

I am trying to discern if there is anything different between the two aircraft. It would appear that the 737-700ER is simply a BBJ with a different name.

I think it involves installing some features in the cabin to make it a commercial aircraft like a rear-facing flight attendant seat at the front of the aircraft.

From an engineering standpoint, I'd imagine it's the same aircraft.

Yes, the 737ER is using the same block identifiers that the BBJ uses (YG).

First one due soon for Air Nippon! Probably coming down the line at RNT as I speak.
