Yes.

MAX’d out on MAX threads. If you are starting a thread, and it’s about the MAX - stop. There’s already a thread that covers it.

They have 738 Max too.
As we celebrate mediocrity, all the boys upstairs want to see, how much you'll pay for what you used to get for free.

Debate the topic and not the user, if you don’t have anything worthwhile to say it’s better that you keep it to yourself

A great site for aircraft info: https://www.planespotters.net

And it's WN specific page is here: https://www.planespotters.net/airline/S ... t-Airlines

You can examine the WN fleet past, present, and future in great detail! And just about every other airline on the planet as well.

A question about Southwest fleet, simple and maybe out of date / already discussed:
Why the -700?
As one of the biggest LCCs in the US they should bet all on capacity.
-700 and MAX 7 are not the best deal for capacity. -800 and MAX 8 are.
They just started buying the MAX 8, why no -400 and -800?

Turns left, looks right

They currentlly have over 200 737-800s. Plus the MAX deliveries (at least for the near future) are almost all MAX 8. The -700 is because some markets don't need the capacity of the -800 and some markets need the performance that the -700 has over the -800. As they were growing, they mostly didn't need the capacity until they reached a point where a high enough percentage of their flights could use the extra seats to make it worth the lower CASM of the -800.

Thanks!
Mine was indeed a stupid question.
I didn't check airfleets before writing.
Sorry
