Like me, I’m sure you sit up at night and wonder when the first Boeing 737-200 flew.

With all the discussion of the various Boeing 737 models going on now, I decided to prepare a handy guide to the various models. You can see when the “Classic” models, the -300s, -400s and -500s, were built and then stopped, and when the Next Generation models, the -600s, -700s, -800s, -900s and 900ERs, were launched.

Most of the information comes from a Boeing chart. Some of the information on the Boeing 737-900ER comes from our own research since it appears Boeing hadn’t updated information on that model since 2006.
