Hola a todos,
Already the second one? any news non the future 735's? I'm sure that changing all of the 732's will take some time...

Hola Estick, the first one (LVAYE) is already operating. It had been in EZE for some time but it is flying since late November.

Hola Estick!

Don´t think you can see it from Catalinas, as she is used for flights EZE-GRU-EZE mainly. She flew to GIG last Wednesday too, but obviously all flights are from/to EZE.

LV-AYE first flight was AR1244 on 26/11/2004.

That's great news! LV-AYI is awaiting its ferry flight in basic AR colours at CDG, and a 3rd -500 is due by the end of the year. Yesterday AR finalised a contract with GECAS for its first batch of B737-500s, numbering 15 in all.

The 2nd A310 is now due on December 15, and AU are due to receive another MD-83 (for a total of 5) in the coming weeks. I have a feeling the "45 Boeing 737-300/500s" over the next few years will actually break down into more of a mix of aircraft, including MD-80s and perhaps the odd used Airbus, while with the "4 Boeing 747-400s", we shall see...

The last B737-200 is due to be phased-out in 2009, but I don't see why that date won't slip, especially since some, such as LV-ZTX, -ZXH and -ZXV, are only 17-18 years old and could fly well into the next decade. As far as actual plans go, LV-JTO, the last of the pax-configured -287s in service, will be retired in March next year, exactly 35 years after AR received their first Boeing 737. LV-ZTE is also earmarked for retirement in March, but, being of 1985-build, she may simply cross the Andes to join the Chilean division, as was originally planned. Its 7 sisters at AU may be next in line as the Marsans vision is to standardise AU's fleet with one type of aircraft, the MD-83. LV-WSY and -WTX, two 1972-vintage former ANA machines, will be put up for sale next year as they differ slightly from the rest of the fleet.

For now, That's All Folks!

Saludos,

ZXV

Thats great news. I was just reading the press release on our intranet about the 737-500's, MD83, and A310.

It will definitely be nice to see more 735's in AR colors!

Do you know off hand if there are any other South American airlines operating newer generation 737's?(in other words...737-300's and above)



Visca Barça!!

Fede:

Brazil is home to by far the largest CFM-powered B737s in all of South America. Total numbers are as follows:

BRA: 7 (5/2 x 300/400)

GOL: 27 (5/18/4 x 300/700/800)

NORDESTE: 6 (2/4 x 300/500)

RIO SUL: 16 (5/9/2 x 300/500/700)

VARIG: 31 (26/3/2 x 300/400/800W)

VASP: 3 (3 x 300)

BRAZIL TOTAL: 91

Outside of Brazil and Argentina, there are just 3 B737-300s in the rest of South America; 2 with LAB and 1 with PLUNA:

With the arrival of LV-AYI, the CFM-powered 737s number 96 throughout the continent.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy But I still miss these the most:
