Today was the first time I'd seen a Southwest 73G in one of the N9xxWN registrations:

Question primarily directed to OPNLguy, but anyone in the know can speak up.....is 905 the newest one? Also, what new deliveries are upcoming?

We've got pretty much the entire block of N900-series registrations already reserved... The latest actual delivery was indeed N906WN, and the next should be N907WN in February...

N908, N909 and N910 will all by in Feb. sometime. WN should be up to about N922 by mid year.

Net gain for the year won't be too many more from last year. Six of the 733s are already out of the schedule and going back to the lessors...

I imagine this aircraft will go to the "Kill Frontier Expansion." I really don't want F9 to die, I love them.

What will they do after the 9-series of registrations are done?

We have 800-series numbers reserved as well, plus the 550-599 range (with N550 and N551 already in use. The 735s range from N501 to N528 so eventually N500-N549 could also be used. After that, I guess it's the 100-series range, since we only had a handful of -200s using those, and they've been gone for 3 years now...

Are the -500s being phased out as well? If that's the case, when will WN be completely rid of the -300s and -500s?

No -500s have been phased out, and I've heard of no plans to. IIRC, they were built in 1989-1992, so they have plenty of life left in them. Our oldest -300 was delivered in 1984, so it'll be 24 this fall, and the last new -300 was delivered in the fall of 1997, so some -300s will be here for awhile.

Well, even if the rare case were to come that the 1-900 blocks were all used up, WN could very easily go to the thousand blocks.. I.E. N1983W or N1243N, N1003S... ETC.

When are N270LV & N271LV to be painted/add winglets? Why the delay?


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

OPNLguy, what's the latest count on 300's, 500's, and 700's in the fleet?

270's been painted, but no winglets yet IIRC. Haven't seen 271 in a while.

IIRC, 188 -300s, still 25 -500s, and 3-4 -700s. I keep the Southwest entry on Wikipedia updated with aircraft counts so you can always get the latest there.

I'd bet that they're re-painted for a new operator while out there. Don't know who....

Quoting 727LOVER (Reply 11):

They were kept in use due to demand. N271 should see paint before the summer, and all 4 used aircraft will be standardized with 137 seat interiors, HUDs, and winglets (for the two that don't already have them) during the same MX visit.

757 line has been shut down for awhile, and I doubt you'd see used ones or A320s here. The 737-700 is pretty much a mini-757 performance-wise...
