Hi there  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

With all the recent topics about your most recent flight on a certain plane I thought I'd start one involving one of the most widely used aircraft...the 737  Laugh out loud

So what airline served your first flight on a 737(any type)

P.S. Sorry if this has been brought up before a search provided nothing

My first flight on a B737 was Aloha. I think it was a B737-200. (I was very young so I don't know the version). I could have very well been on of AQ's B733 or B734.

I grew up on Aloha Airlines 737s. I often "rode plane" between the Hawaiian Islands on the weekends, hoping on the first flight out to where ever in the early morning, and returning home on the last flight of the night.

We are the people of American Airlines. And we know why you fly.

AF served my first 737 flight, it was a 737-228 five years ago. ORY-FNI

My latest 737 flight was yesterday, a 737-5whatever on BA, while we should have flown Airbus. I was unamused. LGW-GVA

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

Air Europe Gatwick - Funchal May 1979 - G-BMHG 'Adam' - I believe it was the first flight that AE operated into FNC. I went up into the cockpit (I was only 11) and there were at least 4 pilots up front, I think to familiarise themselves with the approach. Being an a.nut even then I remember the curved approach and slamming onto the tarmac. We had to refuel at Santiago on the way home. Great days!
