First one is former AB a/c, D-ABKC.
It has already been operating on OTP-MAD-OTP on Nov. 27th.
Hopefully we would see pictures of it a.s.a.p.

Ok, so that's why they don't appear on Beoing's order list.

Any idea if they are leasing directly from AB or from a leasing company?

I think there will be takers for the 737-300, if RO chooses to get rid of them. AFAIK they were desperately looking for more capacity for the intra-european network (I saw their A310 Transilvania in VIE last weekend on an evening flight) and the internal traffic is growing and, I guess, it will be growing even if a crisis starts, due to the modest shape of the roads. What's still annoying me : RO mentions that the 738 has 186 seats, this means they are keeping the all-economy configuration of AB?

Quoting Flylot (Reply 6):

Because it's a better airplane than the B737-600. The 600 has a high CASM (Cost per Available Seat Mile) compared to the 700 and 800 Series, that's why it is not doing well. Tarom probably needed an aircraft with a small capacity, slightly smaller than that of the 733/73G, capable of medium range.
Both the 737NG and the A32X are great aircraft, the airlines choose the model that best suit them depending on the fleets, route network, price, yields on each route and relationship with the manufacturer, all those factors come into play when ordering a new aircraft.

Quoting SXDFC (Reply 7):

I'm sure they are keeping those. They are young, plus they share a lot of commonality with the 800's they are receiving now. It would make sense to phase out the older 300's if there are any takers for those, and replace them with 4 A319's if Tarom needs any additional aircraft for expansion.

Remember, Ro is state-owned. At that time it was a political decision, meant to rebuild good relations with France, after Romania backed the US in Iraq and France opposed the intervention. At that point, Romania needed political backing from France to join the EU. RO tried subsequently to change the order into A319 or A320, but this was not possible, even after the political team doing the A318 order left.

AFAIK RO never considered the B737-600. They leased only for a short period of time the B737-500, but that was everything they had in the capacity of the B737-500 or -600. I don't really think that they need the slightly smaller capacity of the -600, as long as their -300 and -700 have a relatively wide seat pitch for the industry and have thus . Take a look at their fleet page:

http://www.tarom.ro/en/about-us/the-fleet.html

You can see there is only a difference of 3 seats in Y between the 737-700 and the 318. This means in my opinion that they use the aircraft for routes with similar demands. For a privately run company of their size, it would be very unusual to have two planes with the same capacity differing only in the range of the aircraft.

I wonder what routes Tarom are using this on? Also, i notice the configuration seems fairly high at 186 - meaning they must be using standard economy seats for the business cabin. Anyone have any more info on this?

There might be a need for a 737-500. LH is flying several times a day FRA-OTP with this plane and the planes are every time full, at least in the cattle class.

Is Tarom still going to join SkyTeam as an associate in the near future?


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).
