Max 8 a jumbo upgrade for Southwest Airlines – Houston Chronicle
The last week has been a huge change for Southwest. First it retired its final two-plus dozen 737-300s and then it started 737 MAX service two days later. The funny thing is that while this will reduce costs for Southwest and allow longer routes, it’s a relatively minor change for passengers. Sure the new 737 MAX is quieter and those old 737-300s were the last airplanes without wifi in the fleet, but most Southwest passengers won’t know the difference between a 737-800 and a 737 MAX 8.
