BOEING has confirmed that Southwest Airlines is to take 79 Next Generation 737-700s on which it has options. Southwest, the first and one of the world's most successful low-cost carriers, operates an all-Boeing fleet of 452 737s. Although it is presumed that some older aircraft will be retired the new commitment will take the airline well past the 500 aircraft mark, a truly amazing figure if you compare it with the total production run of some products of the past. In February, Southwest took delivery of the 5,000th Boeing 737 (see picture). Later this summer, Southwest is slated to receive Boeing's 2,000th Next-Generation 737. Boeing has sold more than 6,200 737s to carriers worldwide.
