Boeing 737-900ER

The Boeing 737-900ER is a narrow-body airliner and a variant of the 737 Next Generation series and the 737-900. This variant is the newest and latest variant in the series and the 'ER' stands for Extended Range. This means that this variant has more flying range than the basic model while still carrying the same amount of passengers. With this improvement, this variant is capable of replacing aging Boeing 757-200 models that airlines may have. The 737-900ER is far more popular than the the base variant because of this and there are many more of these variants in server than the standard 737-900. The 737-900ER typically flies medium to long haul flights that have high demand and has a typical seating capacity of 177 seats in a two class configuration.
