None Alaska's -700 or -900 aircraft are ETOPS. Most (if not all) -800s are though.

It might make sense to equip the -700 fleet at some point, but since they have fewer seats than the -800 it also means the -700's CASM is higher. The -800 is the ideal aircraft for Alaska's Hawaii service based on its economics.

Unfortunately the -900s - even the wingletted ones - lack the range for Hawaii service. They're best used on high-density routes like LAX-SEA, PHX-SEA, LAX-SJD, SEA-ANC, etc.

Only 10 737-800s in the AS fleet are ETOPS.
The remainder are not, and are further subdivided into SFP (short field performance) and non-SFP.
The ETOPS a/c are routed on the SEA/Hawaii flights, as well as LAX-CUN, SEA-CUN, and SFO-CUN.
It would be nice if all the 738s were ETOPS, as they could cut time (read fuel and crew savings) on
the SEA-ANC runs.



First, benzene in my Perrier, and now this!
