Never been on SW plane to Orlando before so...

What type of planes (717, 727, etc.) do they use that fly from the PHI, BALT, PIT to ORL?

Are seating arrangement 3 rows on each size or 2 rows on each size of the plane?

Thanks

Southwest only operates Boeing 737 aircraft. There are 3 seats on each side of a single center aisle.

I am reviving this thread instead of starting a new one.

So are SW 737's relatively large planes? I like the larger ones better and I think DS who is flying for the 1st time would be more impressed w/ a large plane. Is there any of the other airlines planes to match it up to as far as seat diagrams on the Seat Guru website?

Thanks!

They are moderately sized jets, hold about 130 passengers. Smaller than a 757, larger than an MD-80. I think about the size of a 320, maybe a twitch smaller.

The bulk of SWA's fleet are 737-300s and 737-700s that seat 137 passengers in a 3/3 configuration. (I think a few rows have 2/3 seating for accessiblity issues.)

Here's a photo ofa 737-700: http://www.boeing.com/companyoffices/gallery/images/commercial/737700-06.html

Most of the other airlines flying 737 have a first class section. I don't think seat guru shows that configuration. The seat pitch is a little better than most other airlines.
