In pop culture?[edit]

Hi. Just like many other plane articles do, should we have a Boeing 737 in pop culture section? I'm not saying we should or shouldn't, just asking. From what I can remember, 737 was portrayed in Random Hearts, Red Eye, The Slums of Beverly Hills, plus all the "Airport 24/7" and many of the Air Accident or Air Emergency shows.

Most pop culture is just to trivial to mention and anything of note would be in the Aircraft in fiction article. MilborneOne (talk) 10:08, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Two vs. three crew in -100 and -200[edit]

I changed the Specifications table to show only two crew for all models. While it is true to say that several airlines in the US operated 737-100s and -200s with three people sitting in the cockpit, the third crew member was not required and was in there for non-operational reasons i.e. because the pilots' union said he should be there.

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:18, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

find malaysia airline company colors[edit]

Suddenly, I can not find pictures of any MA airline. The ojects found floating are of an airline! My question is what were the company colors? If there are prior pictures some where let me know, Terry — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.105.40.20 (talk) 14:54, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

If you're talking about the Malaysian Airlines flight 370 disappearance, note that the aircraft involved was a Boeing 777, not a 737. You are looking at the wrong page, so no wonder you're not finding any pics of Malaysian Airlines a/c. —Compdude123 17:02, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Fuel Consumption Figures[edit]

So the sales and marketing types are at it again. For those of us who do not care what brand of beer we drink, where can you find the Specific Fuel Consumption rates for these type of Vehicles? In the US and Canada, for Automobiles, there are published fuel consumption guides , depending on the Vehicle, and a Standard Drive Pattern. For the airlines it is not so easy, but still why are there no Guides. Ie An Airbus 320 Flies at x lbs / hr @ a Certain Takeoff Weight (based on its configuration) vs a 737-xxx flies at x lbs/ hr @ a certain takeoff weight (apples to apples).

  • Dont understand the sales and marketing comment but fuel consumption rates are not notable or encyclopedic unless somehow unusual and then that would be mentioned in the narrative. MilborneOne (talk) 09:04, 27 July 2014 (UTC)
