It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700 climbing out of Chicago O’Hare International as it heads off to its next destination.
Southwest Airlines operate a fleet of 410 Boeing 737-700 aircraft, with the airline being the launch customer of the type and still the largest operator of it. The airline also operates the larger Boeing 737-800 and Boeing 737-8 (or Boeing 737 MAX 8, with the airline in the queue for the Boeing 737-7 (or Boeing 737 MAX 7).
Together, these cross the United States of America, serving 106 destinations domestically, as well as to Aruba, The Bahamas, Belize, The Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Cuba, The Dominican Republic, America and Mexico.
This aircraft – N773SA – joined the Southwest fleet in July 2000, making it just under 23 years old at the time of writing. It’s been a busy aircraft – as a US domestic and Central American aircraft seems to be, with tight scheduling to optimise usage.
