Actually those delivery dates have been revised. Current schedule is:
N808SY delivery - March 15th
N809SY delivery - March 22nd
N808SY is being painted at the Renton plant (it rolled off the line this past weekend) so if there are any folks out there with cameras, you should be able to get some shots. N809SY is being painted at Boeing Field and will roll off the line this week.

Keep in mind, no eyebrows on these new deliveries. 807 is the last new delivery from SY to have them. Perhaps winglets will come after the planes have been delivered?????
It was great to see all the SY planes going around MSP this weekend. I am not sure I have seen it this busy with them in a long time. It seemed like every time I turned around there was a blue or green plane. Go SCA!

I am SO glad SCY is growing and doing it with my favorite aircraft. I love seeing them at IFP. Will be back at JFK late March SO I will stop by when you guys can tell me either of the newer birds will be there. I have flown you, spotted you, photographed you!

Tango-Bravo: No winglets on the SCA birds yet. The SWA -700 between the new babies (line 1668) had some pretty winglets on it which I certainly admired (I think I commented on them to fellow employees every time I walked between ours). We are always evaluating options, so you never know what could happen.
Sunking737: You mean C, J and J? Everyone will be happy to see them in home in MSP. The new interior sure is nice to fly on.
NIKV69: I'll be sure to let you know what's up. Thanks again for your enthusiasm!

Quoting Nwafa (reply 12): THANK YOU FOR FLYING NORTHWEST AIRLINES, WE TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR BUSINESS!
...and don't even think about flying anyone else. Because if you do, NWAFA will personally kill you.
Sorry to disappoint you NWAFA, but I didn't see UnitedRhapsody complaining about the lack of choices so your standard copy & paste response can't cut it here. I'll save you your next response, "NWA should move to Detroit, blah blah..."
On Topic: From what I have heard, as the price of fuel goes up, the price of winglets does too. So money saved right away comes out in the wash. I will enjoy the day a blue tail flies in with winglets on board. whew.

NIKV69 807 was in IFP over the weekend did you see her?
It is nice to see that everyone loves to see our planes. I was told getting the 737-800 was the only thing the "old" owner did right.
With the price of oil up again maybe more people will fly and not drive. 2005 is going to be wild, if you thought 2004 was just wait. I see more chap 11 in the forecast. Who will be next? Who will stay and who will go. Stay tuned !!!

Your comments are a total crock! Because I thank someone for flying on NWA,and mean it, Im wrong for that? Now more than ever I am thankful when people fly on NWA. I was pointing out that almost all major (U.S. carriers fly into MSP), which that user was trying to say that there was not much service).
I fly many carriers every month (and NOT Non-Rev either) and say good and bad things about them....is that not was this forum is all about?

No, but it's apparent you did not see the point I was shooting for with that. There are no issues with thanking anybody for flying NWA but as soon as anyone complains or suggests otherwise you have your copy and paste reply. I just know how it is.
Quoting Justplanesmart (reply 15): Maybe after these two enter service, we can starting seeing more of Sun Country's own aircraft at SEA, rather than the Transavia hybrids.
Nothing beats those blue tails, but I can't complain whether the plane is blue or white. Either 737 with the sunburst on the tail looks good through my lens.

Derik737 and Sunking737,
Welcome to my respected user list!
You SCY guys are good men. Thanks for all the info, Derik737 has been great. SCY is my second favorite carrier and I spend my whole winter with them at IFP. I can get so close to their birds at IFP and it's awesome when they taxi out and rev those engines and go right past me! As soon as I get my new lens I will get much better pics of them here.
You kidding? We are having rain here like you would never believe. Saturday we had the worst thunder storm go through with hail. Then a downpour that lasted 2 hours and rain after that. The roads were terrible. Some parts were 3 inches of dirt from wash outs all over. Arizona has done a better job clearing the roads than Nevada! I didn't venture too far since I don't need my new car getting hit by rocks and went to Vegas for 3 days. Just got back. I saw 807 a week ago here I was so excited. I should be at IFP for Flight 101 and 102 next 4 times, Thur, Fri, Sun and Mon. Send her here one of those days!
Again keep up the good work, I want an airline with an all 73G fleet that has 1st class cabins, great service and a great Livery, you guys should think of a special livery for some of your new planes. Think of something cool!

NIKV69 Thanks for the kind words I love my job at SY and all the people I work with. This summer we will have just 7 737-800's flying, no Transavia's. This came right from the CFO at a company meeting 3 weeks ago. If we get any Transavia birds next season, they would like to put in First Class. Hard to sell yourself as a airline with First Class when 6 planes are all coach...186.
They are looking for more planes for '06 and beyond. Keep in touch
Just an MSPAVGEEK
