Well Renton is where they build them, but they do pre-delivery testing out at Boeing Field.

The last 400 was delivered to CSA in 2000.

All 737 series, 100 thru 900, are/were built there.

Unless something really weird happened for that particular aircraft, it would be KBFI.

Incorrect. The first 271 737s were built at Boeing Field. Production moved over to Renton after the 707 production essentially ended.

All 737s since have been built in Renton. Preflight work is always done at Renton and then almost all 737s have their first flight from Renton to Boeing Field. There are a few that will have multiple flights out of Renton, but that is rare.

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

BFI is the acceptance airport for most everything not a 777 or 747. But there have been 777/744s accepted at BFI as well. I think its a lot easier to fly into SEA and drive to BFI over driving out ot PAE.

So the last 737-400 was accepted at BFI.......... IIRC a lot of planes have been ferried over to SEA and started line ops right there. I know for a fact LAN Chile did that as well as a lot of others. I mean if its not the first plane for the airline of the type....... and the airline has flights out of SEA. Whats the point of flying a new 777(empty) or what have you over to Japan..... only to fly it to SEA the next day? Outside first planes or special planes, most planes get ferried to the closet airport and start passenger ops ASAP, since the airline got it to make money and not fly around empty. It may not be common but its common sense  Smile

On that same note, some do not have seats which is an different story.

I have never heard that 767s were delivered from BFI. 767s are flown out of Everett.

Some airlines will fly one off routes from SEA with special additional service when they take delivery of a plane. Ethiopian has had some one time only flights out of SEA.

I wouldn't say most. I would say that the majority actually go to the airline's hub or other airport with significant operations. It usually takes a day or two for an airline to get them ready for revenue service.

Now that is definitely not always true.

Very few new planes are delivered without seats. Sometimes airplanes are delivered without complete interiors, but that is not common at all.

Any widebody you have seen delivered out of BFI was officially delivered at PAE prior to being ferried to BFI. Don't confuse a delivery ceremony with the actual delivery.

After 9/11 757's were delivered out of PAE for about 14 months (IIRC) and some 737's were delivered there in (was it) 2005 when the glass beads mixed in with the runway paint at BFI lunched several engines.

It was before 9/11 when Boeing shifted all 737 and 757 flights from BFI to PAE. The earthquake that damaged BFI's runway was in February of 2001. It was not due to 9/11, but rather the large earthquake which resulted in significant damage to BFI's large runway. Boeing field operations shifted to Everett then in addition to having more flights out of RNT.

They may have a special ceremony at BFI b/c BFI is a lot easier to get to then PAE and has a lot of extra stuff.

Not to get into a pissing match...... but you said its possible in one sentence then you say this  Wink

Like I said, I know it has done BUT not that often  Smile
