Boeing 737-800

Go back

The 737-800 was designed to replace the 737-400, seating 162 passengers in a typical two-class configuration, or up to 189 passengers in a single cabin layout. It competes with the A320 on medium-haul/transcontinental routes and is also an efficient replacement aircraft for MD-80 aircraft (particularly in the US), burning 20% less fuel on comparable routes, despite an increase in passenger capacity.

The 737-800 is an exceptionally popular model with airlines around the world, with more than 5,000 airframes ordered, of which approximately 4,000 have been delivered. Primary operators of the 737-800 include American Airlines and Ryanair.
