Thanks for the report, I hadn't realized that Sharp Airlines had stopped flying.

Maybe one suggestion, a few too many photos, I should write a few trip reports, although I do know that they are hard to write and I used to use photobucket but they have now gone and increased their chargers.

RE: Leeham: Boeing Changes 737-7 Strategy

What is the usual seat capacity of the 737-800 against the 737-700.

I thought that a 737-800 usually has more than 150 passengers so would require 4 cabin crew, a 737-700 usually has less than 150 so can get away with 3 cabin crew.

So I think there is still a lot of market for a 737-700.
