Hi guys! I was just returned from Borders, where I read the Airways airlines handbook. It said that America West had 4 747-200 on order. Is this true, or was it a mistake?
If it is true, then why the old version of the 747 when there are many new versions?

WHere will they fly them?


P.S. This is NOT certain, but I heard a few days ado, that a new group of investors is lookiing to start a new airline, and they are planning to achire the Eastern or the Carnival Airlines name!!!! That is SO cool! I ca´n´t wait for a formal press release!

I seriously doubt it. I know that they had a few 747s back in the early 90s. The 742 is no longer produced, so there would be none on order.

Weren't they the old KLM 747's that HP got in the early 90's for service to HNL and Japan?

I thought that it was out of date, but it was the 1999 edition (it rolled out in 2000)

Don't look for HP to go 747 again... it almost killed them once already!



...three miles from BRONS, clear for the ILS one five approach...

You might be confused with 757-200's I am not sure if they have any of them on order, but 2 large problems with the 747-200's on order first they do not amke them and second it would not fit into AWA schedule!

At one point prior to bankruptcy in 1991, they had also four 747-400s on order to add to the four -200s when they thought they were going to expand their Pacific-rim route network.

HP used to have 747s...but no longer! It's probably just a mistake.

Must be a typo because AWA has no widebody plans right now.

In all likelihood it is a typo. The 747 doesn't currently fit into AWA's fleet/route strategy.

But, technically they could have 747-200s on order. Just because the aircraft is out of production doesn't mean they haven't signed a deal with another airline and have "ordered" 747s from them.

In the early 90s the 747-400 order was the least of their ambitious plans. In 88 they had an order for like 6 Airbus 300s and w/ options for 12 more and 6 767-300ERS. Talk about an airline with a big head that thought it was going to be the next UAL/AA/DL/NW/CO at the time! I don't know the circumstances of how the Airbus order got dropped but the 767 orders I think got converted to the 737s/747-400 which were also later dropped.
