SAS was the last European operator to fly the 737-600. The carrier operated 29 Boeing 737-600 over time. They were now replaced with the Airbus' newer generation single-aisle jets, A320neos.

The chubby looking -600 is the smallest model of the 737's Next Generation series. Like in the case of the Airbus A318, it has never been a success story.

Boeing has sold only 69 copies. The last 737-600 left the final assembly line in 2006. Airlines preferred to fly with the larger and more efficient 737-700, -800 and -900 variants of the NG Family.
