Boeing 737 Specs

In the more than fifty years of its existence, the Boeing 737 has evolved from a stumpy little twin-jet airliner into a family of high performance and versatile jet transports. Check out the Boeing 737 Specs tables below to get a clear picture of how these city jets stack up.

The global climate of rising fuel costs, as well as increased competition in the form of the Airbus A320, have ensured that Boeing continues to bring out more improved versions of the type. Of course, we know that there have been major hiccups in the introduction of the new 737 MAX with the tragic loss of life as a result. Whatever the reason, we hope that both Boeing and the F.A.A. (Federal Aviation Administration) have cleaned up their act and made the MAX as safe an airliner as its predecessors.
