AS uses 732 Combis on routes within Alaska and SEA to ANC I believe. They have apparently also started a mail run recently for the US Postal Service. I don't know if it is strictly a mail run or also passengers, but it uses the 732 also. They are also converting a few of their 734s to cargo so they can retire their 732s.

After the tsunami, wasn't it a cargo 737 that hit a water buffalo, or was it military?

Starting soon Kitty Hawk Aircargo will be the North American launch customer for the 737-300SF, I believe 8 to start with all leased from GECAS.

They currently operate 727-200F's out of their Fort Wayne, IN (FWA) hub:

You are correct Charlie, we are the North American launch customer for the Boeing 737-300SF. We are also the launch customer for FuelMizer, a flap modification that will increase climb performance while netting a 3% to 5% decrease in fuel consumption. Kitty Hawk is dedicated to becoming one of the most fuel efficient and environmentally friendly cargo operators in North America.

Our 737's are being retrofitted from birds being purchased from Malev, Lufthansa and Easy Jet. We should see them in the U.S. sometime in late April.

Here's a sneak peek:

This raises the question of whether there has been further news in the Fedex rumour of a large 733F/734F conversion to replace their 721F/722F fleet?

Any updates?



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

AndrewUber, do you have a link that provides more information? I'm not asking for anything proprietary, just what's in the public domain. I have a feeling we'll be seeing 733's and 734's doing cargo for a long time.
Thanks,
Lightsaber

As mentioned above, AS flies 727-200 combi's. Several of them being ex-Markair metal. They recently announced that they will be replacing the 200's with 5 737-400's that are currently in their fleet. According to their website...
"Four of the carriers 737-400s will be converted to a fixed 70 passenger/four pallet configuration. One aircraft will be retrofitted to full cargo configuration." I have flown on an AS 737-200 combi from Anchorage to Bethel and a Markair 737 between ANC and Kodiak. Freight up front and passengers behind the wing with a movable partition separating the two sections. It was weird not having the cockpit door visible from the seats. I wonder if they will have built in stairs to access the passenger section like the 737-200's.

Most of them will be fixed configuration combis to meet the FAA's regs.

I am sure WN would like to know that they are not currently using FuelMizer, because they sure think they are. According to the WN people here, FuelMizer has not yet shown the results promised on the aircraft they have fitted with it

I seem to remember reading a thread here in the last few months about this and if I am not mistaken it said WN would be removing that mod from the test aircraft due to a lack of fuel savings compared to the maint. issues, some flap cable issues and......?.

Wow thanks for the info on FuelMizer folks, I've forwarded it to some important people... I just noticed that the letter I have says Kitty Hawk is the launch customer for the "CARGO version" of the FuelMizer. I can't imagine a flap mod being different for a cargo varient - it's probably just another way of getting AvAero in the paper.  Big grin Next thing you know, we'll see the "California launch customer" and the "Washington launch customer".... etc

They have not said they are removing it yet. 737Doctor came on to say that they had not realized savings yet but were sticking through the trial term.

Aloha Airlines operates a few -200QC models, which fly pax during the day, then cargo at night. There's also one cargo run during the day as well. The day flight loads up on the south ramp, while the night runs operates from their hangar.

In the thread I posted the link to above 737Doctor said that "the evaluation period is over and the results were disappointing. The three aircraft will now be de-rigged by maintenance." Now as I do not work for WN, would luv to though  Smile, I can only go by what those who do, or have a very reliable contact post here.


25 N1120A : The problem is that they were set to buy a bunch of 733s from WN when WN then decided to expand faster than Boeing could supply them 73Gs. Now, WN is
26 Ha763 : Actually, the AQ QCs are strictly used for cargo only. They do not fly pax anymore. You can see 3 of them parked on their cargo ramp during the day,
