I want to say there is between 15-20 left. I am not sure on the exact number. Although, that number will decrease shortly. Those 737's are finally on a schedule once again to be painted in the new scheme after a stop was put on the scheme during the UA/US discussions.

The new scheme does look nice but it looks as though it has a tendency to fade or dull in the area where the jetbridges are attached to the aircraft. Anybody know why this happens? The photos below, of two different aircraft, show this phenomenon (I don't think the dulling is due to reflection of the sun). Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm not sure how many are left, but I do know that the number of silver birds is dwindling fast. In the last 2 weeks I have seen three 737's leave the desert, go straight to the paint shop, and then come to our hangar for "c" checks. Sending planes to the desert is just one of many negotiating tactics we are using to get more favorable lease agreements.
