When Air India merged with Indian Airlines, Indian´s old 737-200 (operating under the Alliance brand) were either converted to freighter (just three of them if I remember right) or transferred to its regional division. Strangely no traces can be found of the pax-732s since 2007. Have they been retired, as would come to no surprise, or if not how come not a single photo of them has surfaced in the last 3 years? (I´m not talking about the cargo planes here)

Cant really find any detailed info on their current status either. They seem to be listed as active though and not stored or scrapped in the fleet databases.

Ok so i took a lil peak over on MyAv.

VT-EGG seemed to be operating in the new Air India Colours in 2009 but that is one that was converted in 2008 so.

I don't know how accurate that is, but it mentions 6 737-200's

Thank for this. Interesting stuff that AI is going to close down its shortlived cargo arm. Didnt now that as much as six 732s have been converted. I´m sure now that no pax-732 is left in the most-merger AI.
