When did Boeing stop accepting orders for the 737-100?

When was the tooling destroyed? Why didn’t WN order the 737-100?

I wouldn’t imagine the “tooling” was that much different from the 737-200, so you’d have to consider when the 737-200 was no longer offered/ordered. Namely 20+ years later in 1988.

The final drawings were cast in stone by the middle of 1965. Southwest didn’t start up until 1971. By then, the -200 was the superior choice.
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!
