B737 CL. The Boeing 737 Classic is a second generation of the Boeing 737 jetliner. This generation follows the original -100/-200 models that began production in 1966. The first model of the Classic series – B737-300 – entered service in 1984. Model B737-400 started to fly in 1988 and was followed by the shortened B 737-500 (the smallest variant in this generation) in 1990. The main characteristics of all Classic Boeing 737 generation are short- to medium-range, narrow-body jet with seats between 145 and 180 passengers. These series were produced by „Boeing Commercial Airplanes“ from 1984 to 2000. In total 1,988 aircraft were delivered (Shaw, 1999). Even though the numbers of earlier models are gradually decreasing, B737 CL aircrafts still are being widely operated by airlines in the world.
B737NJ. The Next Generation Boeing, better known as “NG”, started service in 1993. Since that time Boeing 737 models 600/-700/-800/-900 were produced as an upgrade of the 737 Classic series. They were redesigned to be able to compete with a new rising star in transport aviation – Airbus A320 family. So NGs, comparing with Classics, have wider wingspans, a greater fuel capacity, higher MTOWs, longer range and are larger (passengers’ seats are between 108 to 215). According to "737 Model Orders and Deliveries data 2019", a total of 7,097 737NG aircraft have been ordered, of which 7,031 have been delivered, the remaining orders are in the -700 BBJ, -800, -800 BBJ and -900ER variants. The upgraded and re-engined 737 MAX series is to supplant the 737NG, with the first 737 MAX delivered in 2017.
