See the photographer's remarks to have your answer on this inaugural flight. In any case, nice to see Southwest using the 737-800!!! I hope to see it flying to the Caribbean soon!!! Roger C.

Great shot

It's inaugural because it's the first 738 for Soutwest, the other planes you see are 737's

Read the caption: Inaugural 737-800. The others are 737-700's; they have been a fixture at FLL for some time..

The other 737 is a -700 series, this photo shows a 737-800 pulling in for the first time.

It is the inaugural 737-800 southwest flight, not the inaugural southwest flight! But fantastic photo by the way!

I believe Dan wants to say "inaugural plane" but not inaugural route to FLL
