Information Needed On Delta 737-700's

Thu Dec 03, 2009 4:38 pm

Can anyone tell me the MTOW of Delta's 737-700's as well as the specific engine type on their 700 fleet. I am having difficulty finding this information on the internet and my copy of JP Fleets is out of date.

Wow.... why did they opt for -26's??? That's a lot more power than most -700s out there.
The ones I've dealt with have just had the -22's!!!

Delta opted for the high thrust CFM56s because they planned to use the aircraft for high altitude and/or South American destinations where good takeoff performance is a necessity.
If it was said by us, then it must be true.

Tegucigalpa, Honduras...

This aircraft has something I have never before seen in an AFM, a minimum weight to be able to use maximum thrust. If you are super light weight, then you HAVE to operate the airplane at a reduced thrust.

Some of the other -700s might have the same restriction in their AFM, I just have never seen it before.

The airplane was intended for short field or hot & high operations. Airports like those in Latin America were the intention of the airplane. Also they are flying them to shorter field airports like SNA.

DL got the 73G exclusively for performance. They were the launch customer for carbon brakes on the 737 so that they could save 500lbs in order to improve performance even more. The fleet fills a small niche at the airline, so it will never operate that many of them. People thought they were for thinner routes, but in reality they are a higher performance plane for markets where the 757 does not work.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Quick question, are the engines on the -832s CFM56-7B26 or CFM56-7B27s?
Some see lines, others see between the lines.

As far as I know, AA is the only North American carrier that opted for the CFM56-7B27. For the same reason as DL with the 73G, AA wanted max performance out of their 738's for the flights to South America out of MIA.

I left the OCC back in June, I love the new facility, but I wasnt around to see what it looks like with all the NWA bodies in there...
