I noticed this bird enroute BFI-HOU. Is this a delivery flight of a new -900ER?

Yes it is. CO is took delivery of that 739ER today.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Note the flight is going to Houston Hobby (HOU), not Houston Bush Intercontinental (IAH). Hobby is home to one of CO's maintenance bases, especially for the 737.

IIRC, 2 more 737-900ERs are to be delivered to CO this month.

I've flown our first -900ER (ship #413) twice and I appreciate the minor display improvements in the cockpit, especially the ISFD (Integrated Standby Flight Display).

The bad thing is that there is no display at all in the passenger cabin.  banghead  No IFE is installed on any of the new aircraft pending the arrival of the 'Live TV' system in 2009. So everyone bring you Ipods and DVD players...

While at LAX today i saw a very long 737, i followed it and turned out it was a CO 737-900ER, can someone let me know if this was the same aircraft that was recently delivered? http://flightaware.com/live/flight/COA594
It was the cleanest paint job I've ever seen, i could see my reflection on the static ports!!



Never forget United 93

Not the same plane. Subtract one number, ship 416 in this case.

In fact CO should be taking delivery of another 737-900ER tomorrow.

You lucky dog you!!  Smile

I've only seen 413 from the gate while being pushed out of E12 a few weeks ago headed to SFO but did see 416 taxi by for departure yesterday, it was a beauty, so lovely in her CO livery!!!!!!

No offense meant - but from my "schweetness" standpoint, it's another stretch of a stretch of a stretch of a Boeing 737, a basic design well over 40 years old now. Live TV, free booze, oxygen bars or strippers in the jumpseats - none of these things to me would change the fact that it's just another 737. Sigh. We need a new narrowbody airframe.

B/C Breaker1011 loves the 737 fleet so much............I'll inform everyone that ship 418 is scheduled to leave BFI today at 1900z for LAX on its delivery flight.


okay, I'm waiting for the rich to spread the wealth around to me. Please mail your checks to my house.

New deliveries spend at least a week or so getting acquainted with CO MX before they start earning their keep... A process called Induction.

Gee what a small world... I met this very flight when it arrived at IAH tonight.  bouncy 
It has that wonderful 'new plane' smell to it...  nosy
