Yes, they do. It is a private charter for the Pheonix Suns, not used for regualar service.

The 737-100 is used for regular service in the off-season.

AWA's 737-100 has always been used in scheduled service during both the basketball season and off-season. During the season, it used to have about 50 seats, all of which were first class except for about the last 2 or 3 rows. Needless to say, this arrangment was poular with customers flying the aircraft between charter flights. During the off season (and all the time now), it has approximately 90 seats, including eight first class.

Before last basketball season, the Suns did not renew their contract for charter service with HP, so the Suns no longer fly this jet contrary to popular belief. However, America West and the Suns still have a marketing partnership. As of a year ago, the aircraft (N708AW) often served Oakland, El Paso, San Jose, and Tucson (all out of Phoenix), but this may have changed slightly.

Seeing that it no longer is the Sun's "personal" jet will this aircraft be retired when the A318s and A319s come more on line?

The aircraft is used between PHX and LAX. Because it is one of the classics, my understanding is that it will be one of the first to be retired. If I remember correctly, it was built in the late sixties?

This is the only operating 737-100 in the world. There are a few others, owned by Aero Continente and someone else in Peru, but these are grounded. Therefore this AmWest one is the only one and anyone hoping to get a flight on all nine 737 series, -100 to -900, needs to get a flight on that quick. As for me, I've got all but the -6/700 and of course, this one. I must write to AmWest and see if they can give me some info.
