The DL 757 is likely there for paint, would have likely seen a departure of one back to LAX. The AS MD83 is for storage or lease return, in most likelihood.

Alaska is continuing to send MD80's to the desert (VCV). Last month AS decided to ground an additional 2 MD80 in Seattle as spare a/c. But they will be gone from the fleet by Dec. '08, so look for this routine through '08.

Scheduled mx in VCV means its done. All mx on the MD80 are done in OKC for a/c staying in the AS rotation.

Who is flying the Maxjet 767-200? (I know, the pilot!) I see it is using a Maxjet flight number. Is it being flown to storage by a Maxjet crew, or by the leasing company? Do leasing companies have pilots on staff for repositioning, etc. of their aircraft or do they contract someone to fly it?

Being that Maxjet stopped flying less than a week ago, the odds are that this flight was operated using Maxjet pilots, probably of the management variety. Still not sure which reg. it was though.

Given the fact that Maxjet is in Ch.11 and not Ch.7, they have probably still some pilots on staff. Since they use a Maxjet flight number, this is most likely the case.

For some reason, the web site is down as I write this, so let me ask why MaxJet had a plane on the ground in JFK. It was my understanding that the last flight operated before the airline shut down was JFK-STN, while LAX-STN and LAS-STN were canceled, so why was there a plane in JFK ?

As of yesterday morning there were two Maxjet 762s here at LAX. Not sure if they're still there as they're on the south side (I only have a clear view of the north side from my place).

Also, we have a NWA 742 that came from Eglin AFB yesterday, and parked right next to it a China Eastern A346 that most likely went technical yesterday as well.

The AS 9470 flight was N981AS which is one of the two they decided to park early. This is one of the newer MD-80s built in 1997, so I imagine this aircraft will see future service with another airline. I'm surprised they would retire this aircraft now rather than wait until the end of the holiday travel rush after New Year's. The MD-80 flights continue to be "punctuality challenged."

So then it appears there are (were) 2 in LAX, 1 in LAS, 1 in VCV, and 1 stranded at JFK with no engines. Does anyone know how the 2nd plane got to LAX? The first one would have been part of the regular STN rotation.

It's sad to see MY fold but not at all surprising. Given the financials that were posted on the London Stock Exchg, one would almost have guessed that it would be around this time that they would have run out of cash without additional infusions. They stated in their half-year earnings release that they essentially cleaned their balance sheet of debt with the last infusion and it's clear the debt just began piling up from then forward.

What's odd is that they were still actively recruiting colleagues and finished a f/a recently at Delta's training center. Imagine being hired and going through 5 weeks of training - and then to only work for about 4-5 more weeks before learning of your employers' demise.

Doesn't seem to be much of a market for B762s in passenger configuration. Any chance that these MaxJet birds get a cargo conversion and end up at ABX?
