Boeing Aircraft verses Boeing Airplane[edit]

Greetings, I think this template is better titled "Boeing Airplane" models instead of Boeing Aircraft. An example being the Boeing Model 234. One is a twin rotor, heavy lift helicopter. The other a 1930's fighter. Thoughts? --Trashbag (talk) 20:35, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Model Numbers are useless[edit]

...as evidenced by the fact that they point to articles with different names. --91.10.17.142 (talk) 23:01, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

We include the model numbers for cross-referncing. That's not useless. - BilCat (talk) 23:36, 26 October 2011 (UTC)

Boeing Customer Codes[edit]

Added Boeing Customer Codes as this was not well referenced on article pages and they are directly related to model numbers. e.g. a British Airways 747-400 is specified as a 747-436... Southwest 737-700 is 737-7H4, and so on. The last 2 digits/letters specify the Boeing customer that originally ordered the airplane (as the article notes).

The list of customer codes is, IMHO, very important and needs to be better linked on pages that refer to specific Boeing models.

Cheers!
