To book the best Southwest flight you have to know about the different airplanes available. Southwest uses three types of aircraft from the Boeing 737 family. The Boeing 737-700 is older. The 737-800 is newer and more spacious. The most spacious is their newest aircraft, the 737 Max 8. The tray tables are shorter on the Max 8 so it’s actually comfortable to have down as a plus size traveler.
