Looks like it's wetleased to Skyking, a charter company. Their website is at http://www.flyskyking.net.

No. But in the past Airtran has flew/operated DC-9, 732 and CRJ-200's (Air Wisky). They currently have 717 and 737-700

Records indicate that AirTran's last B732 left service in December of 2005.

It only takes five years to go from rumor to standard operating procedure.

All AirTran 732's are out of revenue service and have been gone for quite some time. I am not certain of the exact time frame the type was retired, I believe it was ethier late 2000 or early 2001.
I joined the company in March of 2002 and was with them throught
April 2004, no 732's ever operated. Weather or not FL somehow is wetleasing the types, could be possible but I would say most unlikely.
But I am not totally certain, anything is possible I guess.

I should have said "dry" leased in my original post... It's Skyking crews, just an airplane that FL still owns.

We kept the 737-200 on the books mainly for the operating certificate. It has been leased out for quite sometime now. When we ordered the 737NG it was an easy integration because we were already certified to fly it, and our ramp training manuals all had the 737 in it already so it was a pretty seamless integration. By the way that 737-200 is pretty sweet inside. It was in MKE a couple years ago with the San Antonio Spurs and we went it it. It has old DL first class seats, nice wood grain trim, and a ton of legroom.


Nice Trip Report!!! Great Pics, thanks for posting!!!! B747Forever
