Re: Southwest may take 500 MAX 7

Even though WN has a fair number of 73Gs in it's fleet (an understatement to say the least), they are going to want to replace those (as some are used birds) in the coming years.

Does the 8 have a different wing body side join arrangement than the 9/10?

What other major differences exist?

By incorporating the Aft of the 9/10 onto the 8, you get the advantages of the laminar flow improvements done there correct?
