Any Airline Yet Operates All 4 737NG Types?

Mon Jul 30, 2007 12:43 pm

Hi folks...
I posted a thread about this same topic in Nov 2003, and I'm just wondering if there has been any updates/changes since then. Are there any A.netters here know of any airline or airlines operating all 4 of the 737NG versions? And before anyone corrects me here, I consider the -700/700ER & the -900/900ER pretty much the same airplanes respectively.  Wink I know of alot of carriers operating 3 sub-types, but how about the -600, -700, -800 & -900 series all at once? All replies appreciated.
Regards.

None that I know of, but there is an airline who operates the whole A320 family, Air France.

Quoting MD90fan (Reply 1):
but several airlines operate the whole A320 family, Air France for example.

Who else?? I don't think any other airline has A318 through A321, besides AF

the -600 is never going to be well received and the people that do operate them don't have 900's this answer may stay "no "or remain "no" for a very long time.

I don't believe so. As far as I know, only SAS and Westjet operate the 736. Neither carrier operates the 739.

Continental operate the 700, 800, and 900 but not the 600. As for the 320 family, US airways is the only us carrier that i know that comes close, they have the 319, 320, and 321 but opted for the emb-190s over the 318s...
The opinions I post are of mine and mine alone, not of the airline I work for.

AS also operates the -700, -800 and -900. It's not out of the realm of possibility that they would get 600's either. So maybe AS will if anyone at all.

LH also comes close in Euope, with the A319/A320/A321. But IIRC they aslo opted for the E-jets in the smaller segment.

Quoting Azstagecoach (Reply 6):
AS also operates the -700, -800 and -900.

KL will come close also, they will soon operate the -700, -800 and -900 as well when the first -700's arrive (I believe next year). Unfortunately, I don't think they will order the -600, as the F100's cover this segment.

Respectfully, its 100% out of the realm of possibility. =)

FlyGlobespan: 736/73G/738 and I think they may have 739s on order?

To add, Malev operates 736/73G/738 but not 739 yet.

Most people are in agreement that most carriers will opt out of the 737-series at one end of the line.

That pretty small airlines like Lauda, Malev and Flyglobespan operate 3 types is pretty impressive.
With probably no future orders for the 600, the only chance to see someone operating all four types is then 736 operators like SAS, Flyglobespan, Malev or Westjet will order 739s. Possible, but not likely.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

No.

There are 5 or 6 carriers who operate the 600, 700, and 800 but none of them have 900's or have ordered 900's.

Not that I know of, but it's quite likely that they will purchase them in the future, possibly even the 737-900ER to fly it transatlantic.

Iberia almost did as well, but I'm fairly sure they converted all of their A318's to A319's, although there's no saying they won't get them in the future.

i think air france operates the A318 up to the A321 but i think continental is the closest with the 737 family

And Air Algerie and Tunisair. The last 736 order was almost 2 years ago (WestJet) and there are none remaining to be delivered. The last of the 69 736s built to date was delivered to WestJet last September.

Considering that they have from -700 to -900, CO would be a potential one, although, I hardly believe that we will see any new 736 orders. 73G is has almost same flying costs with more pax capacity right? And in CO's case, I don't see them receiving neither the -700 series.

Correct, CO has no interest in the 736, will not take any further 73Gs and in the near term future will begin to reduce its 735 fleet.......all of CO's future 737NGs will be the 738 and the 739ER. The larger members of the 737 family make more economic sense for CO (and many other ""traditional"" airlines that offer an F class product) in the current enviornment.

------------

I think that a future WestJet order for the 739ER is a real possibility; the extra capacity offered by the 739ER could be useful to WestJet on higher demand Canadian routes (like Toronto-Calgary/Edmonton/Vancouver services) and/or on routes from Vancouver to Hawaii. WestJet would then become the first airline to operate all variants of the 737NG family.

Quoting Dutchjet (Reply 20):

They have quite a new fleet, with 2,5 years medium. There are 13 737-600 (119pax), 47 737-700 (136pax) and 6 737-800 (166pax), and are receiving 6 73Gs and 1 738 in 2007 till the point I know.It's interesting to see also, that on the -600 and -700 series, they have smaller pitch than in the -800 series, 32'' vs 34''.

So, if they placed an 739ER order, it would probably be a small one, for like 4 or 6 a/c i think. I agree that the -900ER would fit nicely on some Westjet's higher demand routes. I thought YYZ-YVR-NHL would be one of them while they fly that, from 4/nov to 11/may/apr(?)....
