shouldn't the 73H be listed then in the master list for what airlines have as far as plane types though?

No as it shows the 4 digit code plus airline IATA code (ie B737_xx) that is in each airport manifest file texpack,  not the 3 digit code in the schedule files. As an example for the B737 you get the following in the latest RT packs:

B737-73G-BOEING 737-700
B738-73H-BOEING 737-800                  
B737-73W-BOEING 737-700                               
B737-737-BOEING 737                  
B738-738-BOEING 737-800                
B739-739-BOEING 737-900

So for the 73G in the schedule you will get the B737 appearing and for the B73H you get the B738 appearing

If you carry out your own research in the manifest texturepack files you can get the answers to most of your questions

This is the second time he asked this question and I answered it yesterday.

In continuing the theme of already answering questions, yesterday I posted the following: "Based on the xxxx_aiplanes.txt file there are two 737-800s in the game - 73H and 738. However for the model and livery, both get translated to B738. So, from a T!3D perspective they are the same plane". 

@ATC AlaskaGuy here's picture of a B738 (AAL) and 73H (ASA) back-to-back for further evidence that they are the same. I hope you'll forgive me for using the old ASA livery. 😂

Wow that was difficult, it may be time for a break from the forum. 😉
