I'm not sure what this is about but would like to add. The quickest commercial flight in the world (according to the Guinness book of records, who are we to argue!) is between 2 of the Orkney Islands off Scotland. If the wind is in the right direction the short hop between the islands can be achieved in around 70 seconds!

Would this be for the new 757 winglets? What do airlines do at BFI anyways. What is the need for them to go to the place in which the a/c was built? Do they do this when their own maintance crews can't fix something or for tests?

The plane was perhaps going in for some warranty work???? Seems logical enough to use the plane in revenue service as close to BFI as possible before the ferry flight. Would be kinda dumb to ferry the plane empty from IAH all the way out there..
