I thought the only 737-700's operated by Air Berlin are leased from Hamburg International and carry the registrations D-AHIA and D-AHIC???
I see from the arrivals/departures pages at Zurich this morning that D-ABAB has visited twice so far (and is listed as a -700), can you confirm these sightings or is it somebodies typo? (Uniques's pages are usually accurate in my experience). I didn't think the German authorities allowed re-issue of previously used reg's! Interesting. If this is infact D-AHIB, note that Hamburg International have already re-registered it in the past few years (from D-AWAH)

As far as I know Air Berlin has ordered two own B737-700s ! D-ABAB must be on of it.
There are many registrations which were previously used. I think of Lufthansa´s B737-430 which used older B727-230 registrations, same with some Airbusses I think.
