The date is 2006 I believe, but it can change depending on how many extra aircraft are needed and the state of Air Canada aswell.

WJ still flies 22 of their "original" 23 732's. It will be a while yet.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

What's the problem with their 200s? Every one I've been on has been in good shape inside. If you want a newer plane find a higher fare on AC to get a 319 if your lucky. But you'll probably get a zip 200 anyway. Grow up.

Well, then fly on AC, and pay more! Angry

There is absolutely nothing wrong with 737-200's. They are fantastic machines, and very comfortable (especially Westjet's and Zips!) Considering they are the backbone of travel in Western Canada, and will be for a while yet, you and I are going to riding the JT8D pumpkin for a while!

'I wanna fly on an airplane that is only 1 week old, get a hot meal, 38" of legroom, and only pay $5 each way for the ticket. If I don't get that, than sucks!!!'

Sheesh..... Is there no pleasing some people!

You'll miss them when they're gone, they are full of character.  Smile

I did'n said something wrong with 732, there is nothing wrong with all 737, guys! My question is: "When will WestJet replace thier entire 737-200 fleets with 73G" because they "are not" considering to be the backbone of travel in Western Canada "forever"?! Besides, the 73G has more benfits then 732. Not only old aircrafts has character, the new aircrafts has it too!

I think WJ will finally put the 737-200 out to pasture when the new ICAO rules on jet engine noise and exhaust emissions finally make them obselete. That probably won't come until 2006, though.  Smile
