I don't have any numbers for you, but I CAN tell you that on ferry flights on -700s, the plane must be ballasted aft.
I would think the -800 would be similar, though not identical, in nature.

Sorry for my late reply, I hope my answer is still of use to you. I created some fake flights in a loadcontrol system with 738's from 4 different airlines. All of them with a full economy config varying between 160-189 economy seats. With a take-off fuel of 28000 pounds I got the following MAC at TOW values for the 4 different aircraft. I won't specify the airlines but they are all European.
MAC at TOW

Thanks for the hard numbers. Could you explain in more depth what they refer to?
|Quoting FlyASAGuy2005 (Reply 7):|
The numbers that crimsonNL posted is telling me that all those flights are fairly tail heavy.
|Quoting FlyASAGuy2005 (Reply 4):|
Hope this helps but in my experience, the 738 is usually loaded up front (bags) when its light (shorter flights say under 2 hours) and almost always loaded in the back on longer flights. On the -700 you can almost always get away with loading in the back regardless.
