What about the 737-Classic did you most appreciate when flying on Southwest?
Ever since I was a 1 year old, I’ve been flying on the 737-200 and -300 for Southwest Airlines. And because of that the 737-Classic has become my favorite aircraft of all time. Everything about it was amazing. From the leg room, to the interior design.
My memories on the 737-200 are fuzzy, but I do remember the tan leather seats on the Southwest Air -200’s.
However my fondest memories are of the -300 and -500. The leg room on these planes are and were just outstanding. The seats were thick and comfortable. I could lower the tray table and lie down comfortably and sleep without having a hard plastic seat-back grind against my head like you see in the newer 737’s.
Words alone cannot truly describe my love for the 737-Classic. I’d like to hear your memories of the 737-Classic.
