Boeing 737-900

The Boeing 737-900 is a narrow-body airliner and a variant of the 737 Next Generation series. This variant features the upgraded engines and overall improvements that the other variants do however it's fuselage is not like any of the Classic series and is the first stretch of the 737 since the -400 variant. The 737-900 is the longest variant in the series but was less popular than its sister variant, the 737-900ER. This was due to the minor increase in seating capacity and shortcomings in range. The 737-900 typically flies short to medium haul flights that have high demand and has a typical seating capacity of 177 seats in a two class configuration.
