Boeing 737-800: What we know about the plane that crashed in China – CNN

A Boeing 737 carrying 132 people crashed early Monday in China. Although Boeing’s 737 has faced extraordinarily high-profile safety concerns over the past three years, the plane that crashed Monday was a different version of the aircraft than the embattled 737 Max that shook Boeing to its core.

The crashed China Eastern Airlines plane was a Boeing 737-800. It’s the most common version of Boeing’s jets now in service, and it is the workhorse of many airlines’ fleets.
Tracking services FlightAware and Flightradar24 reported this plane is the China Eastern Airlines Boeing 737-800 aircraft that crashed Monday with 132 people on board. This is a file photo taken on a Chinese tarmac in February 2022.

There are 4,502 of the 737-800s now in service worldwide, according to aviation analytics firm Cirium, making it by far the most common Boeing aircraft in use today. It is the most common plane model in the United States, where there are 795 in service, as well as in China, which has 1,177 in service. And it’s the second-most-common plane in use worldwide, behind only the A320 made by Boeing (BA) rival Airbus (EADSF).
