Yeah, they show an -800 on the assembly line. While it's still interesting & fun to watch, this has been squawked before.

I know, I thought the airframe was too long to be 737-700.

Incredible how much it apes any modern Auto manufacturing assembly plant.
Loved the scene from inside offices, workers in the foreground in cubicles, planes rolling on line in background.

First time view for me so thanks! Enjoyed very much.

Southwest really embraces the "If it's not boeing, Im not going" spirit.

I'm always amazed at how an 800 becomes a 700. I wonder how they do that? ;-)

I think one is longer than the other as one carries more passengers. If I am correct that would mean the fuselage is stretched with an additional section. Probably in front of the wing.

I don't know what the big deal is about how long it takes to build an aircraft. Boeing can build and paint a 737 in less than 2.5 minutes! :D

Southwest got grilled about this video on Facebook a while back...and finally admitted that this is the same footage (of multiple 737-800s) that Boeing uses for all airline 737 assembly videos. The only footage that actually pertains to 'Florida One' is at the end when they're in the paint bay.
