“The Boeing 737 is a short- to medium-range twinjet narrow-body airliner. Originally developed as a shorter, lower-cost twin-engined airliner derived from Boeing’s 707 and 727, the 737 has developed into a family of nine passenger models with a capacity of 85 to 215 passengers. The 737 is Boeing’s only narrow-body airliner in production, with the -600, -700, -800, and -900ER variants currently being built. A re-engined and redesigned version, the 737 MAX, is set to debut in 2017.””The 737 series is the best-selling jet airliner in the history of aviation. The 737 has been continuously manufactured by Boeing since 1967 with 7,755 aircraft delivered and 3,467 orders yet to be fulfilled as of September 2013. 737 assembly is centered at the Boeing Renton Factory in Renton, Washington. Many 737s serve markets previously filled by 707, 727, 757, DC-9, and MD-80/MD-90 airliners, and the aircraft currently competes primarily with the Airbus A320 family. There are, on average, 1,250 Boeing 737s airborne at any given time, with two departing or landing somewhere every five seconds.”

“The Airbus A320 family consists of short- to medium-range, narrow-body, commercial passenger jet airliners manufactured by Airbus. The family includes the A318, A319, A320 and A321, and the ACJ business jet. The A320s are also named A320ceo (current engine option) after the introduction of the A320neo. Final assembly of the family in Europe takes place in Toulouse, France, and Hamburg, Germany. Starting in 2009, a plant in Tianjin, China, has also been producing aircraft for Chinese airlines. In April 2013, Airbus started construction of a new production facility for the A319, A320, and A321 variants in Mobile, Alabama. The aircraft family can accommodate up to 220 passengers and has a range of 3,100 to 12,000 km (1,700 to 6,500 nmi), depending on model.””As of July 2013, a total of 5,677 Airbus A320 family aircraft have been delivered, of which 5,481 are in service. In addition, another 4,135 airliners are on firm order. It ranked as the world’s fastest-selling jet airliner family according to records from 2005 to 2007, and as the best-selling single-generation aircraft programme. The A320 family has proved popular with airlines including low-cost carriers such as EasyJet who purchased A319s, and A320s, to replace its Boeing 737 fleet. The aircraft family competes directly with the Boeing 737, 717, 757 and the McDonnell Douglas MD-80.”

The Boeing 737 series is the most popular airplane in the world that flies domestic routes for several airlines. Airbus built the A320 airliner to directly compete with the 737 series. Both airplanes are very nice and have good safety records. Which one do you like better? Tell me in the comment 😀

  1. I like Boeing 737 series and airbus a320 series but you really can’t say anything until you flown in both of them I thought Boeing was all that until I flown in a airbus A319 and that was nice.

  2. Since they're so similar in performance I gotta focus on the small things. I prefer the yolk of the B737 to a joystick because it feels like you have more control in my opinion since you have the option to use two hands instead of one and a yolk is placed right in front of you much like a steering wheel. And lastly the the 737 is beautiful and sleek while the A320 is bulbous and awkward looking.

  3. Sorry for the Airbus fans, I do agree that it is a very good plane but I have fown hundreds of times in both and Boeing 737-800 is better that is of course just my opinion but boeing has better stability

  4. The 737 looks better from front to rear. The nose looks like a jet should, compared to the round goofy nose of the A320. The tail has a cooler look with the extension onto the fuesalage. The apu exhaust looks way better on the 737 than that cone shape on the A320. The 737 has way more history and pedigree as well. Just a better plane period.

  5. Honestly, I am an Airbus guy, but I have to say that the Boeing 737 design is so much better than the A320. It just looks so much sleeker and "fuller" than the skinny A320 that resembles a big bamboo cross. However, I do prefer the Airbus' A350 and new A330 neo series due to the fact that their design and layout is more preferable for me. That said, both companies make awesome planes and we should all admire the technological marvel it takes to build something so amazing.

  6. I don't really have a favorite the airbus a320 has its pros and cons. The pros are.The windows offers better view. It doesn't have that loud air conditioner when you board and it's smooth when it takes off and land. The cons are, sometimes there is that loud barking noise that it always seems to make. Doesn't bother me but it can me unnerving to other passengers. It doesn't have that overhead compartment that create more space for you to stand up like most Boeing 737 now have. The pros of the Boeing 737 are, if you are on a b737 that has the sky interior you have more space to stand up because the designs of the overhead compartments create more space to do so. The cons are, the cabin is noisy when you board, the windows are very low. If you a really tall person it might be hard for you to get a great view.

  7. I prefer boeing 737 800 and i like the boeing drones and all boeing military craft .I killed lot of arabs with boeing military planes.

  8. The 737 is a huge success story, and has tons of character from the flat bottomed turbofan engines to the exposed landing gear tire when in flight. But I think the A320 has a lot more beauty in the design with less aggressive points and curves. I am willing to bet, the 737 despite being much older stays in production even after the last A320 rolls off the assembly line!

  9. A320 was A. The first plane i flew in and B. My favorite plane but boeing is a much much much better aircraft company so i would go with im sorry boeing for life but A3……..73……….A320
