I think I heard rumors that Boeing will shortly build planes that are called Boeing 737-600, -700 and -800 in order to have successors for the Boeing 737-300, -400 and -500.

But I'm not sure.

Furthermore I heard that there also plans on building a 737-200, which should become a little bit larger and more modern than the 737-100.
Is that true?

I'm really confused.

Boeing actually just got through making Next Generation 737s...737-600, 737-700, 737-800 and 737-900. Boeing probably wont be making an updated 737 anytime soon...

Not true, plans are still pending on an up rated 737-900, a replacement for older 757's. All current 737-900's lack the range and seating (safety reasons) that are currently shown by the 757-200. I believe upgrades will include a higher gross weight, so it can carry more fuel and passengers, and one or two more exit door positions, similar to that on the 757-200. With these changes in place, the Series 900 can carry more people further than any other 737 variant with the exception of the BBJ. I believe all current 900 operators are very interested as well, Continental to replace older 757's, Alaska to carry more passengers without changing to a larger aircraft type, Korean to have on higher density Korean routes and some inter-Asian routes that won't take the larger Airbus and Boeing widebodies, and KLM for higher density European routes.

Naw, it's kind of like a Caravelle, except it has different wings, different fuselage, different engines and a different manufacturer. Does that help?

How do you Americans know about the Mercure at all?
If I remember correctly all Mercures were always and only used within France.

Lufthansa, I believe the Mercure was to be a competitive aircraft to the 737, so that could be how we know about it.

BTW, how many were made and who flew them aside from Inter?

No, you don't! You all had been to LGB in some day in the 1970s when a Mercure was there! Acutally you all have forgotten this plane already again!

BTW: Only 10 of them were ever made and Air Inter was the only operator. The last one was retired in 1995.

Must be the reason! At least you can't have seen the Mercure at LGB in the 1970s!

It's the 737-900X, a higher capacity version of the -900 which gets in some extra seat rows by adopting a novel flat aft pressure bulkhead for a maximum capacity of 205 passengers. There are plans for a 9000 lb increase in MTOW which will include additional fuel for more range. To meet emergency egress rules, a new exit door will be added aft of the wing. Right now the -900 is limited to 189 passengers by these egress rules. To take the capacity up to 205, additional exits are mandated as necessary and this will likely be the primary recognition feature of the -900X since the fuselage length will be the same as the -900.

First of all, If you look through hundreds of of thousands of airline photos like me everyday you tend to see these things. Its the internet! You can find a picture of almost anything. And what is "The forbidden country"?
