My previous post seems to have vanished, and I'm still looking for info on this jet. Boeing says that it is to be delivered early this year, and it is early this year now. So... if anyone knows anything about the 737-700F, please post! THANKS!

Hadn't heard anything about a freighter version, per se. I did hear a few months ago that the Navy (ours) has ordered a few of them (4-6) with cargo doors to serve as replacements to some of their C-9s (DC-9s). Anything new on the Boeing website?

Alaska Airlines had expressed interest in a combi version of the -700, with a fixed configuration of 3 palets and 56 seats, similar to the 3/56 arrangement of their 737-200QCs. But with the stringent FAA regs regarding freight and pax on same deck (excpet for the grandfathered a/c, like AS -200QCs), floor strength and fixed bulkheads I dont think the idea went any further. Additionally I dont think Alaska would have much use for a fixed config like this since they reconfig thier 737-200s up to 3 times a day to meet the demands of the particular routes.

It would seem like a costly venture to order new 737-700Fs when a freighter conversion of a 737-200 or -300 would be MUCH cheaper when you get an a/c of the same size/ capability in the end. I guess unless you need the extended range of a -700.
