Might be worth breaking out 800/900 versions in the stats. It came up in our discussion of the Kingston, Jamaica overrun that the stretched versions sometimes land flatter, with more tendency to float, due to the reduced tail clearance and pitch limits. And will have higher landing weights, on average.

But there are so many other factors - where flown, quality of crews and training, willingness to push tailwind limits, SOP flaps choice, etc. I leave it to experienced 738/9 drivers to comment - but it is true that if I see "737 overrun", I'm never surprised if it's an 800/900.
