I was on Planepictures.com site...and found the following links.

Malev has 737-800 HA-LOU without eyebrows.

I couldn't find this registration on A-net, so I posted these links.

I think the exclusion of the eyebrows improves the look of the aircraft myself.

Makes me sad. This is what made the 737's face unique.


All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home

Make me sad, too. There's something wrong looking about the 737s nose now.

With the loss of the eyebrows I feel that the 707-style nose has just been laid to rest. It's like the end of an era, with no ceremony to say goodbye.  Sad


I think I understood that no more 737s will be produced with the eyebrow windows. Is that correct? Or is it just optional to not have them anymore?

If it's a permanent change, I'd like to know the reg of the last 737 produced with eyebrow windows.

I saw AirTran's N240AT on Friday...NO EYEBROWS


Does Southwest only have one in service?



Listen Betty, don't start up with your 'White Zone' s*** again.

Unique? It was exactly like the 707 and 727.

Nah, we're up to 9 already, N201-N210, unless N211 has snuck in while I've been off, then it's 10...  Wink

No more will come off the line with them; they're gone for good.

As far as the last one with eyebrows, look up the "line" number for N201LV, subtract "1" and then find out who has that line number.

i don't know anything about reading line numbers, but im guessing that N201LV's line number is 1650 from looking at the picture info, so if thats the case, this one here is line number 1649:

I stand corrected. Those were the first photos I had seen, so I thought it was.

But then again, my ISP, Comcast, hasn't exactly been the most reliable lately, so my search times have been severely limited as of late.

Hi to all!!

Man I really don't like the looks without the eyebrows, also that really is a safety feature having thos little windows up there!! I can't believe it saves that much money not to have them!!

I think it looks like it's frowning now. It's a pity to do away with something that harks back to the original Boeing jets but the aviation industry is too obsessed about econo0mics at the moment.


A340-300 - slow, but awesome!

Looks more serious without the brows. I like it a lot.  Smile
