Number produced[edit]

From Boeing's Orders and Deliveries page, I get the following for each 737 variant. Original (-100: 30, -200: 991, -200C: 104) totals 1125. The Classics (-300: 1113, -400: 486, -500: 389) totals 1988. -Fnlayson (talk) 20:11, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

May Need To Be Updated[edit]

Near the end of the first section, it says "...as of January 1, 2001..." and then something about sales. Even if the amount of sales or whatever hasn't changed, the date and sales should be updated.Cedargang (talk) 23:04, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Well, it doesn't really matter because the 737 Classics were taken out of production in 2000. There's no real point in updating this, then. —Compdude123 (talk) 18:55, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Seat Pitch and Width[edit]

Why does the Specifications section include information on seat pitch and width? Don't these seat specifications vary with (and sometimes within) each operator (not to mention within each plane, if it has more than one class)? 76.230.154.46 (talk) 03:42, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Good point. This doesn't quite make sense why this is here. Maybe it's just the standard, but you'd think this would vary by airline. —Compdude123 (talk) 18:53, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

This article needs expansion[edit]

I've noticed that this article needs to be expanded, mainly with more info added to the intro and development sections. This article in general is way shorter than the Boeing 737 and Boeing 737 Next Generation articles. The development and design section is really short, and has little information about the aircraft's development history and design features. I'd like to start working to change this; if anyone wants to help me that would be great. Thanks, Compdude123 (talk) 19:19, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Southwest Airlines Flight 2294[edit]

As of 23 October, 2015, the entry for this flight in the list of accidents stated that the cause to be still under investigation. However, the page for the accident itself, shows a cause for the accident. Accordingly, I removed the "cause still under investigation" part of the item.

Infobox picture / article improvements[edit]

Hi all, amidst the ongoing improvements to the 737 series of articles (further edits may be forthcoming the 737 Classic article, e.g., the area that needs expansion most is the first section, as well as an expanded lead paragraph), would anyone object to replacing the infobox image with an improved one? The current photo is ok, but overexposed on the white portions, and with the dark belly it's hard to make out details there. There are at least two photos on wiki which have almost the same angle but are not overexposed on those portions. Also, as a plus, they face the text which is preferable (per WP:ACI). Regards, SynergyStar (talk) 02:17, 29 June 29 2017 (UTC)

I like the -300 personally. Mostly just as a slightly better angle getting a little more of the side and top. oknazevad (talk) 03:42, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for your comments, the angle is indeed relevant. Regards, SynergyStar (talk) 04:01, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
  • I like the middle one (#2) also. It has a good angle and colors with a lighter background. --Finlayson (talk) 14:43, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the comments. Update to article will follow. Regards SynergyStar (talk) 16:05, 30 June 2017 (UTC)
