Holiday: A Euro 737-300 Wishlist
I am a huge fan of the Panda 737-300 and would love to see Panda wise up to the mould's potential. 35 of my 60 737-300s are Aeroclassics releases using this casting, whilst another 18 are Panda or Skywings. There are so many obvious 737-300s to be made but in this wishlist I focus only on European charter airlines and LCCs. I'll cover others in subsequent wishlists. Even with that stricter criteria there are still 34 examples in this wishlist and more if you include all the Go varieties. No doubt I've also missed some others desire. If so shout out in the comments.
The 737-300 was a popular type with UK charter operators who needed to replace old BAC One-Elevens or put a fuel efficient twin in to start operations. Most charter airlines rarely operated large numbers, most preferred 757s, but 737-300s got into the fleets of most at one point or another:

737-300s also saw service with a wide range of European charter airlines in some really attractive and colourful liveries:
In the early years of the LCC revolution, before the A319s and 73G/Hs swamped the scene the 737-300 was the aircraft of choice for LCCs. Some of the smaller operators kept them going well into the 2000s:
There are obviously quite a few Go livery variations, which I won't list here but you get the idea:
If I had to pick out 10 of the above as my top holiday 733s to be made it'd have to be:

I would love if Panda could tackle the Central American 733, Aviateca, SAHSA, TACA, COPA and SAETA.

LOL, here I am also thinking of South America, it would be nice to see LADECO, Peruvian, Argentina, Boliviana and AeroGal.
