Quoting FWAERJ (Reply 2): Or maybe it's WN buying 30 737-800s now that SWAPA has agreed to a payscale for the 738?
IT's possible but the vote still hasn't gone out yet. That's not to say they couldn't have ordered them already my personal opinion is that they will start by converting 73Gs to 738s that are alerady on the books.

Quoting crAAzy (Reply 1): My guess is AA. They seem to be ordering new 738s every quarter and announcing the purchases on their conference calls.
I hope it's AA. With earnings set to be announced next week, perhaps this order will be revealed next week when US-based carriers announce earnings. Maybe it's UA-Co as a replacement for some of UA's A320s! hehe.

Quoting Stitch (Reply 3): WN still has 107 unfilled 737-700 orders, so I would think they would be more inclined to do a conversion from 737-700s to 737-800s.
Quoting Tysona330 (Reply 10): Highly doubtful its WN. With the recent news of the AirTran buy out they will be adding 53 737-7s to there fleet.
The 50+ Airtran 737-700s are needed just to keep that airline's routes going. More important are the 65 Airtran orders, which will mean that WN will have over 170 airframes on order. I think they'll be fine.
