Boeing Confirms 15 More 737-700s for Southwest Airlines

The Boeing Company today confirmed a previously unidentified Southwest Airlines order for 15 additional 737-700 airplanes, increasing the carrier's firm orders to 261 for that model.

The order, booked last quarter, is currently on the Boeing orders and deliveries web site as an unidentified customer. Southwest, the launch customer for the 737-700, has taken delivery of 132 of the airplanes since 1997 (through the end of June 2003). For the remainder of this year the Dallas-based airline is adding 12 more 737-700s to its all-Boeing fleet of nearly 380 airplanes.
