The other day I was going through my old editions of Airliner World, and in the October 2000 edition in the middle there was a poster of a F9 B734 at Denver.
I was curious, could someone tell me what happened to those planes, how many did they operate from when till when and what did they replace them with?

And also what is happening with them today, they have by far the nicest livery in the whole North America.

Thanks

Quoting JU068 (Thread starter):
here was a poster of a F9 B734 at Denver.

F9 never operated a 734. The only Boeing types were 732's and 733's.

They were replaced with Airbus aircraft that you see today.

The livery on the F9 Boeings is no longer around, except for the animals are still on the tails. The billboard titles are now on them in silver with "A Whole Different Animal" as the trademark.

Thanks, and what year did they start replacing the Boeings with the Airbuses?

2001, I believe. 901 and 902 was delivered in 2001.

IIRC, all the 737s were out of the F9 fleet by the first part of 2004 or the last part of 2003. They were not new when F9 got them, so I suspect a good number have been scrapped.

@F9fan
Who got them once they got rid of them?

The last 737-300 was retired in the spring of 2005 (around April or May).

Cheers

Not sure. I'm pretty sure they were all leased, so they went back to the leaseholders.
