The major U.S. operators of the aircraft, Southwest, American and United, have all told Business Insider that they are on the side of jet safety and antiquity. Airline regulators in China, Indonesia and Ethiopia grounded all of their 737 Max aircraft, on Sunday.
Anyway, if you go to the market for a flight and want to know if you are going to board a Boeing 737 MAMX, here is how to find out.
Just search for flights on the airline’s website, On Southwest. Each list has a flight number. Click on the flight number and a box will pop up with time and flight information.
Most airlines will send you a confirmation email with that information or make it available in their application. If you have already booked your flight, there are several ways to find the type of flight. The information should not be easily obtained from the airline; there are third-party sources so you can turn around. One such source is Siatguru.com by Tripadvisor.
The site will ask you for the airline, flight number, and date of your trip. With this information, it will not only give the type of aircraft expected to operate the type of aircraft, but it will also tell you which of the aircraft has better seats.
This is to say that all information related to the airline’s website and SeatGuru is expected to be operated by the airline. There is always the possibility that other aircraft-type switches may be needed for stressful situations such as mechanical issues.
