Developed to supplement the Boeing 727 on short and thin paths, the twinjet keeps the 707 fuselage cross-section and nose with two underwing turbofans. Envisioned in 1964, the first 737-100 made its first flight in April 1967 and entered service in February 1968 with Lufthansa. The lengthened 737-200 entered service in April 1968. It evolved through four generations, offering several variations for 85 to 215 passengers. The -100/200 original versions were powered by Pratt & Whitney JT8D low-bypass motors and provided seating for 85 to 130 passengers. Launched in 1980 and introduced in 1984, the 737 Classic -300/400/500 versions were re-engined with CFM56-3 turbofans and provided 110 to 168 seats.
