I saw this airplane in the paint shop at Renton the other day on my way home from work. The "experimental" ticket is only valid for the flight "over the hill"...between Renton and BFI.

That is correct. WN will begin adding fin# to their fleet. On the nose wheel doors and between aft doors and the USA flag.
The numbers may not reflect the registration numbers when FL aircraft become WN.

Personally I think they should place it on the very top of the vertical stabilizer like foreign carriers do.

For now, nose numbers and tail numbers will match. That's to give WN employees some time to get used to the new idea of having nose numbers. Later, the permanent nose numbers will be attached and will be different than tail numbers. N8301J will have a tail number of "8301" and a nose number of "4301" (I think).

It is possible it might be used for BWI-LGA but right now...

First Revenue Date
April 11th, MDW-FLL Flight 1717 for the 737-800

Soon it will become both MDW and BWI based to do Florida Runs, West Coast, and Trans Cons.

The plane sure is a beauty!

No it is 3-4 days for a typical 737.

As of now, they are not scheduled for LGA or EWR service. They'll have 5 by the end of April and 33 by the end of the year.

I'm guessing at some point one of the ETOPS -800's will be taken out of revenue service to do ETOPS proving runs?

Now that the text above door 2R been shown to not be "experimental" in subsequent posts, I'm still curious about your statement. Are you saying that aircraft are technically "experimental" on first (and maybe subsequent, pre-delivery) flights?

Are ETOPS proving runs still necessary at this point in the 738's history?

Am I missing something? To me, it looks absolutely identical to the -700, only 19 feet longer. WN's marketing people could have simply re-used all the -700 images for the recent press, and I doubt even 1% of their audience would know!

You're absolultey right, it's pretty much the same paint job...it's merely a matter of opinion. WN's livery I think looks nicer in the 738's proportions...notably the "smaller" (in proportion) vert stab of the 738. Sure, less than 1% of the audience would notice...if even 1/4 of that.

Wiil WN schedule a logner turn around time to get the additional passengers on/off?

Also does anyone know if they have toyed with the idea of double jet bridges or is that too difficult with a single level plane?

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but ETOPS is not necessarily for the 737-800 specifically, but for the Airline, Southwest in this case to prove THEIR ETOPS capability using the 737-800 aircraft.

Good things come to those who wait, better things come to those who go AFTER it!

118 odwyerpw : Question: Did they order their 738 w the Flat BulkHead to shift the galley and add the extra seats? Does it have the Evolution entire which also allow
119 WNCrew : No, we did not order the flat pressure bulkhead and I don't know what the "Evolution entire" is... if you're referring to Southwests EVOLVE Interior,
120 gizmonc : There is suppose to be 6 737-800's on property by end of April, 8301 is the first, 8302-8303 - then 8305/8305, Not sure what the next in the series is
121 SXDFC : Maybe it will be N970WN?
122 Post contains links CitationJet : You can see the "8301 ETOPS" at 0:30 in the following youtube video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mC0ib...all-u&context=G25c0dcaFAAAAAAAAAAA .
123 QANTAS747-438 : So far, WN will have 8301, 8302, 8303, 8305, and 8306, which is 5 planes. Yet, 6 -800s should be delivered by end of April. Could this skipped "8304"
124 GSPSPOT : Love to see WN expanding their 737 offerings! Hoping against hope to see the new-style interiors on more of their a/c!
125 737tdi : Just a clarification: The aircraft will be delivered to WN after completion by Boeing. They will then be taken to ATS at PAE or another vendor to hav
126 Blueman87 : best looking WN bird yet my opinion
127 QANTAS747-438 : I think N8301J is being delivered today, MAR 8. It should be PAE-DAL. Anyone have any info or updates on it? Also, any status on the 2nd -800, N8302?
128 Amatiel : 737tdi is correct on where 8301 is heading. It won't be coming to DAL yet.
129 737tdi : In the quote I am only referring to the aircraft following 8301, it will be sent to DAL prior to having the wifi installed. If you read back a little
130 AirframeAS : When will 8301 be in DEN? I would love to see it!
131 QANTAS747-438 : I think right around first week of August.
132 QANTAS747-438 : There may have been a change in itinerary... 8301J was in fact delivered today, but at a ceremony at Boeing. I think the plane will make its way to D

134 737tdi : Yep: You are absolutely correct. It's going to PAE for the make ready and wifi install prior to coming to DAL.
135 QANTAS747-438 : Good, at least that makes sense. I didn't understand the plane going to DAL for 5 days then back to PAE then again, back to DAL. Much clearer, thanks
136 AirframeAS : Looks like that thread has been deleted??
