I'm scheduled to fly to TPA from YYZ on Westjet's 737-800 on June 16th. I've been wondering if it will have winglets.. also, never been on a 737NG, and I think this will be my first flight on such a NEW aircraft.. should be great!  Smile

I remember seeing a shot of the aircraft when it was still in boeings hands (before delivery) and the aircraft IS equipped with winglets.

Does anyone know what the regular schedule of this 738 will be? YYC-YUL v.v. daily or will it be used on other routes?

When is the 2nd 738 due?

Cheers
Neil



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

The first -800 will be flying on random rotations for the next week(s). It'll fly down to MCO for LiveTV install and certification (which I heard it 45 days). Once the system is certified, the installs should be timed to coincide with the three -800 deliveries we have in June for LiveTV installs in YXX.

The schedule has not been finalized yet, but preliminary schedules show the -800's flying YVR/YYC-LAX, YVR-YUL/YYZ (1x daily), and YYZ-TPA. I haven't heard of anymore routes.



EH.

Thanks CanadaEH!  Smile So we can look fwd to the WJ 738 in YYZ this summer. I'm surprised YYZ-YYC is not on the list though, and that YYZ-TPA is on the list, particularly in the summer. Could be a scheduling convenience for the TPA route.

Poor Andy....no 738's at YHM yet.  Wink

Keep mind mind that the dates that were passed along to me were for September. I spoke with someone in our marketing department and the schedule isn't completely set in stone for the summer. We usually have a Summer Schedule Enhancement press release in April, but I don't know how soon we can expect that given the yes, no, maybe uncetainly over the retirement of the -200's (FYI, all -200's will be gone by Q12005).

Another route which I found to be interesting was that YYZ-YLW will be flown with a 737-600. I don't know if this is the first route, but it was the only one that was passed along to me.

(FYI, all -200's will be gone by Q12005)

Sorry to ask, but hasn't Q12005 (Jan-Feb-Mar) already passed? And I know we still have -200's flying around.

Did you mean Q12006?? Just a question

This thread is about the first revenue flight.  Wink

Look, if it bothers you that much, just delete my post; but truth is, a.net does not have any pictures related to the very topic of this thread.

25 YUL332LX : The first one, yes. The others were taken by a WS pilot. No idea if he's an a.net photograph or not. I hope so.[Edited 2005-04-14 22:39:36]

28 Post contains images Yyz717 : Those temporary quasi-Delta 738 leases don't count.
29 AC_B777 : Very nice plane, but it is very weird not seeing those eyebrow windows. I kinda miss them!
