[53] This is a direct competitor for the Airbus A320 family. [59], In February 2016, Boeing launched a passenger-to-freighter conversion program, with converted aircraft designated as 737-800BCF (for Boeing Converted Freighter). Alaska Airlines launched the 737-900 in 1997 and accepted the delivery on May 15, 2001. African airline orders kept the production running until the 1978 US Airline Deregulation Act, which improved demand for six-abreast narrow-body aircraft. The modest 66 in (1.7 m) stretch of fuselage enables the MAX 10 to retain the existing wing and CFM Leap 1B engine from the MAX 9 with a trailing-link main landing gear as the only major change. Envisioned in 1964, the initial 737-100 made its first flight in April 1967 and entered service in February 1968 with Lufthansa. It was based on earlier 737 designs with more efficient LEAP-1B power plants, aerodynamic improvements (most notably split-tip winglets), and airframe modifications. [3] The 737-800 is the most common variant of the 737NG and is the most widely used narrowbody aircraft. The new aeroplane, the 737-400, was developed as a 150 seat class 727 replacement. In June 1986, Boeing announced the development of the 737-400,[56] which stretched the fuselage a further 10 ft (3.0 m), increasing the capacity to 188 passenger and required a tail bumper to prevent tailstrikes during take-off, and a strengthened wing spar. It is also fitted with auxiliary belly fuel tanks and winglets. On July 23, 2013, Boeing completed the firm configuration for the 737 MAX 8. [26][27][28], In 2016, the monthly production rate was targeted to reach 57 units per month in 2019, even to the factory limit of 63 units later. Owing to the 737's long production history and popularity, many older 737s have found use in museums after reaching the end of useful service. [19][23] The inaugural flight for United Airlines took place on April 28, 1968, from Chicago to Grand Rapids, Michigan. [111] Contrary to popular belief, these windows were not intended for celestial navigation[112] (only the military T-43A had a sextant port for star navigation, which the civilian models lacked. [124][125], Split Scimitar winglets became available in 2014 for the 737-800, 737-900ER, BBJ2 and BBJ3, and in 2015 for the 737-700, 737-900 and BBJ1. As of July 2018, all -700 series on order, 1,128 -700, 120 -700 BBJ, 20 -700C, and 14 -700W aircraft have been delivered. [29], Boeing stopped assembling passenger 737NGs in 2019. and Norton, D.A. [58] A single prototype flew 375 hours for the certification process,[58] and on February 28, 1990, Southwest Airlines received the first delivery.[41]. The latest generation, the 737 MAX -7/8/9/10, powered by improved CFM LEAP-1B high bypass turbofans and accommodating 138 to 204 people, entered service in 2017. An additional pair of exit doors and a flat rear pressure bulkhead increased its seating capacity to 180 passengers in a two-class and up to 220 passengers in a one-class configuration. "Hub caps" complete the aerodynamic profile of the wheels. [10] Many designs for the engine attachment strut were tested in the wind tunnel and the optimal shape for high speed was found to be one which was relatively thick, filling the narrow channels formed between the wing and the top of the nacelle, particularly on the outboard side. [56][unreliable source?] As of December 2019, 15,156 Boeing 737s have been ordered and 10,571 delivered. [34] The variant still sees regular service through North American charter operators such as Sierra Pacific. The last aircraft assembled was delivered to KLM in December 2019; the last two deliveries were to China Eastern Airlines on January 5, 2020. The Boeing 737 Next Generation, abbreviated as 737 Next Gen or 737NG, is the name given to the main models -600/700/800/900 series and the extended range -700ER/900ER variants of the Boeing 737 family. The MAX 8, the first variant of the 737 MAX, has a longer fuselage than the MAX 7. The Classic cabin was then redesigned once more for the third, Next Generation, 737 with a design based on the Boeing 777 cabin. [24] The improved version, the 737-200 Advanced, was introduced into service by All Nippon Airways on May 20, 1971.[25]. This aircraft's cabin is pressurized to a simulated 6,500-foot (2,000 m) altitude. [51] It is similar to the Airbus A319LR. Get the best seat possible with our United Airlines 737-800 seating chart and traveler seat reviews. Total orders and commitments include 80 aircraft to over half a dozen customers. The 737−800 was launched on September 5, 1994. In 2011, Boeing launched the 737 MAX, an updated and re-engined version of the 737NG with more efficient CFM International LEAP-1B engines, and aerodynamic changes with distinctive split-tip winglets. As early 737NG aircraft become available on the market they are actively marketed to be converted to cargo planes via the Boeing Converted Freighter design as the operational economics are attractive due to the low operating costs and availability of certified pilots on a robust airframe. [35] Southwest Airlines flew their first flight of a 737-800 with Split Scimitar winglets on April 14, 2014. It has a longer range and larger variants than its predecessor: the series includes four models, the −600/-700/-800/-900, seating between 108 and 215 passengers. Announced in February 1965, the 737 was originally envisioned as a 60 to 85 seater, although following consultation with launch customer Lufthansa, a 100 seat design was settled upon. [18][19] It was the first aircraft to have, as part of its initial certification, approval for Category II approaches,[20] which refers to a precision instrument approach and landing with a decision height between 98 to 197 feet (30 to 60 m). [123], The Original -100 and -200 series were built without wingtip devices but these were later introduced to improve fuel efficiency. [73][74][75] The Boeing 737 AEW&C is a 737-700IGW roughly similar to the 737-700ER. 2 (one lavatory at the front and one at the back of the aircraft) Cruise speed. Aircraft with more than 30,000 flights (15 years at 2,000 flights per year) should be inspected within one week, while those with over 22,600 flights (11 years) should be inspected within one year. Boeing set out to increase production output and began development on the Boeing 737-800. [63][64] While a few 737-300s were slated for freighter conversion, no demand at all existed for a -500 freighter conversion. A winglet lift credit, achieved through additional winglet testing, that reduces the minimum landing-approach speeds. An optional Enhanced Short Runway Package was developed for use on short runways. Both glass and older-style mechanical cockpits arrangements were available. ], In the late 1980s, Boeing marketed the Boeing 77-33 jet, a business jet version of the 737-300. On this aircraft, through March 30, 2021, middle seats (typically seats “B” and “E”) will be blocked from selection for parties of 1-2. Boeing 767-300ER Seating and Capacity The Boeing 767 family has low fuel consumption and produces fewer pollutants per pound of fuel than similar twin-engine aircraft. The empty fuselage from Spirit AeroSystems in Wichita, Kansas, enters the plant on Day 1. Gregoire's team and CFM solved the problem by reducing the size of the fan (which made the engine slightly less efficient than it had been forecast to be), placing the engine ahead of the wing, and by moving engine accessories to the sides of the engine pod, giving the engine a distinctive non-circular "hamster pouch" air intake. (Project 2A2H). [100] The variant configuration with a predicted 5% lower trip cost and seat cost compared to the A321neo was firmed up by February 2018, and by mid-2018, the critical design review was completed. They are among the highest capacity commercial airliners in the skies today. About one quarter of the global NG fleet of 6,300 aircraft have to be inspected. [3] Boeing displayed the 737-600 in its price list until August 2012. The 737-700, the first variant of the Next-Generation, was launched in November 1993 with an order of 63 aircraft. Early 737 cockpits also inherited the "eyebrow windows" positioned above the main glareshield, which were a feature of the original 707 and 727[110] to allow for better crew visibility.

[182]:13[183]:ix As a result of the NTSB's findings, the Federal Aviation Administration ordered that the rudder servo valves be replaced on all 737s and mandated new training protocols for pilots to handle an unexpected movement of control surfaces. [62] [42] Boeing also offered it as a retrofit for older 737NG aircraft.[43]. [58] Close to the next major upgrade of single aisle aircraft at Airbus and Boeing, the price of jet fuel reached a peak in 2008, when airlines devoted 40% of the retail price of an air ticket to pay for fuel, versus 15% in 2000. Takeoff payloads were increased by up to 2,000 lbs on the 737-800 and 737-900ER and up to 400 lbs on the 737-600 and 737-700. [113] With modern avionics, the windows became redundant, and many pilots actually placed newspapers or other objects in them to block out sun glare. It has been produced since 1996 and introduced in 1997, with a total order of 7,097 aircraft, of which 7,031 have been delivered as of May 2019[update].[1][26]. The seating arrangement consists of 12 Business and 162 Economy seats. Ryanair now offers Premium seats in rows 1-5, 16, 17, 32, and 33. They proved to be relatively ineffective and tended to lift the aircraft up off the runway when deployed. Aircraft of comparable role, configuration, and era, 737-200 JT8D engine with original cowling design, 737-800 CFM56 engine with ovoid "hamster pouch" inlet, 737 MAX 9 CFM LEAP-1B engine with 787-derived engine chevrons, Blended Winglet, standard on NGs, a retrofit option for Classics, Split Scimitar Winglet standard on later NGs, Advanced Technology Winglet standard on MAX, 737 Classic interior in 3–3 economy class layout, Boeing 737NG standard interior with curved panels, Boeing 737NG Sky Interior with pivot bins and LED lighting. Like Boeing's other 737 MAX models, the MAX 10 incorporates the latest technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets, Boeing Sky Interior, large flight deck displays, and other improvements to deliver the highest efficiency. The 737-800 is the most widely used narrowbody aircraft and competes primarily with the Airbus A320.[70]. New quieter and more fuel-efficient CFM56-7B engines are used. The initial model was the 737-100, the smallest variant of the 737 aircraft family, which was launched in February 1965 and entered service with Lufthansa in February 1968. The sides of the tires are exposed to the air in flight. It was launched in 1987 by Southwest Airlines, with an order for 20 aircraft,[62] and flew for the first time on June 30, 1989. The -100/200 original variants were powered by Pratt & Whitney JT8D low-bypass engines and offered seating for 85 to 130 passengers. The dark circles of the tires are clearly visible when a 737 takes off, or is at low altitude. The 737-800 seats 162 passengers in a two-class layout or 189 passengers in a one-class layout. The 737-900ER (ER for extended range), which was called the 737-900X before launch, is the newest addition and the largest variant of the Boeing 737 NG line and was introduced to meet the range and passenger capacity of the discontinued 757-200 and to directly compete with the Airbus A321. [68], The BBJ3 aircraft is based on the 737-900ER aircraft. [5] Preliminary design work began on May 11, 1964,[6] based on research that indicated a market for a fifty to sixty passenger airliner flying routes of 50 to 1,000 mi (100 to 1,600 km).[5][7]. This reduced the downforce on the main wheels thereby reducing the effectiveness of the wheel brakes. The 737-900 also retains the MTOW and fuel capacity of the −800, trading range for payload. Takeoff performance improvements such as the use of sealed, A reduced idle thrust transition delay between approach and ground-idle speeds, which improves stopping distances and increases field-length-limited landing weight, Increased flight-spoiler deflection from 30, A two-position tailskid at the rear of the aircraft to protect against inadvertent, 19437/1: 737-130 registered N515NA on static display at the, 19047/14: 737-222 registered N9009U preserved by, 20213/160: 737-201 registered N213US forward fuselage on static display at the, 20561/292: 737-281 registered LV-WTX on static display at the, 20562/293: 737-281 registered CC-CSK fuselage preserved at Motel Bahía in, 21262/470: 737-2H4 registered C-GWJT on static display at the, 21340/499: 737-2H4 registered N29SW on static display at the, 21712/557: 737-275 registered C-GIPW preserved in operational condition at, 22578/767: 737-290C registered N740AS on static display at the, 22826/878: 737-2H4 registered YV1361 preserved at a hotel in, 23059/980: 737-2Z6 registered 22–222 on static display at the, 22940/1037: 737-3H4 registered N300SW on static display at the, 23257/1124: 737-301 registered PK-AWU on static display at, 23472/1194: 737-219 registered ZS-SMD on static display at the, 23660/1294: 737-377 registered G-CELS (nickname Elsie) on static display at Norwich International Aviation Academy, as an aircraft maintenance trainer. The prototype 737−800 rolled out on June 30, 1997, and first flew on July 31, 1997, piloted by Jim McRoberts and again by Hewett. Wing span. The fuselage length of the -500 is 1 ft 7 in (48 cm) longer than the 737-200, accommodating up to 140[57] passengers. [43][44] Consequently, in that year carriers retired Boeing 737 Classic aircraft to reduce fuel consumption; replacements consisted of more efficient 737 Next Generation or A320 family aircraft. The value of a new -700 stayed around $35 million from 2008 to 2018, a 2003 aircraft was valued for $15.5 million in 2016 and $12 million in 2018 and will be scrapped for $6 million by 2023. United wanted a slightly larger capacity than the 737-100, so the fuselage was stretched 36 in (91 cm) ahead of, and 40 in (102 cm) behind the wing. Currently, we’ve got 5 of them. [2], The FAA has proposed a fine of approximately $3.9 million for Boeing's alleged installation of the same faulty components of the 737 MAX on some 133 737 NGs. [20] [30] The 737-200 Advanced became the production standard in June 1971. The 737 continued to evolve into many variants but still remains recognisable as the 737. On this aircraft, through March 30, 2021, middle seats (typically seats “B” and “E”) will be blocked from selection for parties of 1-2. [99] The MAX 10 was launched on June 19, 2017, with 240 orders and commitments from more than ten customers. Featuring Southwest's newest seating, the 737-700 adds an extra row to the aircraft, … At that time, twelve customers had ordered the package for more than 250 airframes. [15] A 2010 documentary by Al Jazeera alleged that in three crashes involving 737NGs – Turkish Airlines Flight 1951, American Airlines Flight 331, and AIRES Flight 8250 – the fuselage broke up following impact with the ground because of the defective structural components that were the subject of the 2005 lawsuit. The flight deck was upgraded with modern avionics, and passenger cabin improvements similar to those on the Boeing 777, including more curved surfaces and larger overhead bins than previous-generation 737s. There is a large door on the left side of the aircraft. They were eliminated from the 737 cockpit design in 2004, although they are still installed on customer request. The 737 was conceived as a short range small capacity airliner to round out the Boeing jet airliner family beneath the 727, 720 and 707. The BBJ1 was similar in dimensions to the 737-700 but had additional features, including stronger wings and landing gear from the 737-800, and has increased range (through the use of extra fuel tanks) over the other various 737 models. [97] The launch customer, Lion Air Group, took the first MAX 9 on March 21, 2018, before entering service with Thai Lion Air. The 737 was the most commonly flown aircraft in 2008,[162] 2009,[163] and 2010. Electrical wiring is installed on Day 2 and hydraulic machinery on Day 3. The wing incorporated several changes for improved aerodynamics. Boeing and engine supplier CFM International (CFMI) solved the problem by placing the engine ahead of (rather than below) the wing, and by moving engine accessories to the sides (rather than the bottom) of the engine pod, giving the 737 Classic and later generations a distinctive non-circular air intake. [67] The name was short-lived. Depending upon the nature of the emergency, 737s either circle to burn off fuel or land overweight. [129] Continental Airlines,[131][132] Alaska Airlines,[133] Malaysia Airlines,[134] and TUIFly have also received Sky Interior-equipped 737s. ", "Boeing Commercial Aircraft - In-Flight Fuel Jettison Capability", "Troubled American Airlines jet lands safely at LAX. [93] It was first flown from Renton on January 13, 2019 and was due to enter service in April 2019. Launch customer Hapag-Lloyd Flug (now TUIfly) received the first one in April 1998. 33-36 in. [169], In 2019, 737 orders dropped by 90%, as 737 MAX orders dried up after the March grounding. [3] Its operators are primarily US carriers and Lion Air. At the time, Boeing was far behind its competitors; rival aircraft in service SE 210 Caravelle and in development, the BAC One-Eleven (BAC-111), Douglas DC-9, and Fokker F28 were already into flight certification. [114], The 737's main landing gear, under the wings at mid-cabin, rotates into wheel wells in the aircraft's belly. 737 MAX 7 737 MAX 8 737 MAX 9 737 MAX 10; Seats (2-class) 138 – 153: 162 – 178: 178 – 193: 188 – 204: Maximum seats: 172: 210: 220: 230: Range nm (km) 3,850 (7,130) 3,550 (6,570) 3,550 (6,570)* 3,300 (6,110)* Length: 35.56 m (116 ft 8 in) 39.52 m (129 ft 8 in) 42.16 m (138 ft 4 in) 43.8 m (143 ft 8 in) Wingspan: 35.9 m (117 ft 10 in) 35.9 m (117 ft 10 in) 35.9 m (117 ft 10 in) [8] The engine nacelles were mounted directly to the underside of the wings, without pylons, allowing the landing gear to be shortened, thus lowering the fuselage to improve baggage and passenger access. In this mode, the servo tabs aerodynamically control the elevators and ailerons; these servo tabs are in turn controlled by cables running to the control yoke. The smallest model offered was then the 737-700. Boeing later introduced the 737-900, the longest variant to date. When outfitted with nine auxiliary fuel tanks, it can hold 10,707 gallons (40,530 L) of fuel, and with a 171,000 lb (77,565 kg) MTOW it has a 5,775 nmi (10,695 km) range with 48 premium seats in one class. [129] It competed primarily with MD-80, later its derivative MD-90 and the newcomer Airbus A320 family. 31-33 in./79-84 cm. The Boeing 737-800 competes primarily with the Airbus A320. The most common variant was the 737-800 with 4,991 commercial, 175 military and 23 corporate jets ordered of which 4,989, 136 and respectively 21 delivered. It is used by both the United States Navy and the United States Air Force, and has been ordered by the United States Marine Corps. [2] The 737NG is superseded by the fourth generation 737 MAX, introduced in 2017. The first generation Original series 737 cabin was replaced for the second generation Classic series with a design based on the Boeing 757 cabin. It competes with the Airbus A320neo family that was launched in December 2010 and reached 1,029 orders by June 2011, breaking Boeing's monopoly with American Airlines, which had an order for 130 A320neos that July. The principle features of the Sky Interior include: sculpted sidewalls, redesigned window housings, increased headroom and LED mood lighting,[129][130] larger pivot-bins based on the 777 and 787 designs and generally more luggage space,[130] and claims to have improved cabin noise levels by 2–4 dB. [40] Produced from 1984 to 2000, a total of 1,988 Classic series were delivered.[41]. The 737 Next Generation series introduced a six-screen LCD glass cockpit with modern avionics but designed to retain crew commonality with previous 737 generations. The wing was redesigned with a new thinner airfoil section, and a greater chord and increased wing span (by 16 ft (4.9 m)) increased the wing area by 25%, which also increased total fuel capacity by 30%. The 737 MAX 200, a high-density version of the 737 MAX 8, was launched in September 2014 and named for seating for up to 200 passengers in a single-class layout with slimline seats requiring an extra pair of exit doors. The 737-200 Advanced is an improved version of the -200, introduced into service by All Nippon Airways on May 20, 1971. [18] The lengthened -200 was widely preferred over the -100 by airlines. As of May 2019, 52 -900s, 504 -900ERs, and seven -900 BBJ3s have been delivered with 1 unfilled order. They improve fuel efficiency by up to 5% through lift-induced drag reduction achieved by moderating wingtip vortices. Boeing announced it was developing a new higher capacity version of the fast selling 737-300 in June 1986. Launched in 1993 as the third generation derivative of the Boeing 737, it has been produced since 1997[5] and is an upgrade of the 737 Classic (−300/-400/-500) series. [12] It introduced new pivoting overhead bins (a first for a Boeing narrow-body aircraft), new sidewalls, new passenger service units, and LED mood lighting. The Boeing AT Winglet resembles a cross between the Blended Winglet and the Split Scimitar Winglet.[128]. Additional fuel capacity and standard winglets improved range to that of other 737NG variants. The Boeing 737 MAX 7 has two rows of seats more than the MAX 8, allowing it to carry up to 172 passengers. The Boeing 737-900 is the 3rd Boeing 737 model that we’ve added to our fleet, the 1st one of this type joined in 2001. The fuselage cross section and nose is derived from that of the Boeing 707 and Boeing 727. This version of the flydubai Boeing 737-800 aircraft is configured with 189 Economy Class seats. This new improvement is said to shave at least 1% off the overall drag and have some weight benefits. The 737 represents more than 25% of the worldwide fleet of large commercial jet airliners.[155][156].
