If you want to know what kind of airplane you are going to be flying in, here’s how to find out.

The photo shows the tail section of a Boeing 737 Max 8 before it was delivered to an airline. It’s not always that easy to tell what kind of aircraft you’re going to travel in, so here’s how to try to figure that out.

With the recent problems reported on various Boeing airplanes – notably the 737 Max 8 and Max, as well as the 787 Dreamliner – you may want to avoid those planes.

NOTE: Many airlines fly the Boeing 737-800 and 737-900 which are not the same aircraft as the 737 Max 8 and Max 9.

In this example from Google Flights, you click on the little arrow on the right to show the flight details. You’ll see the aircraft type there.

On Momondo, click in the white space of your selected flight, not on View Deal. The details will drop down where you can see the aircraft type.

On Skyscanner, select your flights, then click Select on the flights you want. Depending on the OTA (online travel agent) you pick, your choices will be different. But, once you choose your flight and book it, you can always go to the airline site to get the information. Unfortunately, evey airline site is different, so there’s no uniform way to do this. As an example, here’s a Delta Airlines website view. Click on Details to see the drop down which gives you the information.
