Petite but powerful
The 737-500 is one of the shortest 737-series passenger jets that Boeing ever built.
Thirty-one meters (101ft 9in) long, it seats just 120 passengers and is the smallest classic jet in the Lufthansa fleet. Only the regional jets operated by the Lufthansa subsidiary CityLine hold fewer passengers. The 737-500 has been serving Lufthansa as a city hopper since 1990, leaving the principle routes to larger planes. Yet aside from its size, it easily measures up to its 737-300 colleagues – it‘s even powered by the same type of jet engine.
