Does anyone have pictures of the 738's that Westjet leased from Delta for the summer. they're probably gonna be used for the YYZ-YYC, YYZ-YEG runs...

The rumour is they look like the other WJ planes but the bottom half is Delta livery... sounds pretty nice,
WJ/Delta Hybrid

YYC is supposed to see one today...

We'll probably be seeing one in YYZ or YHM sometime next week... look out spotters!

With the Royal/C3, Canadian Old/New, and Canadian/Air Canada hybrids, I think it would be nice to see another mismatched scheme up here!  Smile

My vote's for Wavy Gravy Westjet!



Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.

Registration numbers should be N3739P and N3740C. Ships 3739 and 3740, and the reason they're so roomy is that they are in the Delta Shuttle configuration... all coach at 36 inch pitch.

Hope you guys enjoy flying on them this summer..... make sure you take your camera to the airport tomorrow, Fallingeese. I'm interested to see what these birds look like.



It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.

These 738 for Westjet won't carry Canadian registrations will they? It's a shame I won't get to fly on one, they sound very confortable.

Damm to think I was going to the airport today to see em.
Ack Ill go tomorrow. I would'a went today if the weather wasnt to damm dull.
But its good to see the 800s here. I too heard that it shall start operations on the 23rd.
So I guess the second one is yet to arrive within the next few days.

Anybody know what time it came in today?
I will kick myself in the butt if it came in at 10-11pm area cuz I was at piano lessons  Sad

Whooppee doo!!
Another nice addition to YYC.

Sounds like a good time for the GTAE to meet and see these new aircraft come into YYZ.

I'm sure that Tony will be there with bells on and Darcy I bet will get some great pics!!

Why is Delta leasing out Shuttle 738s?? Don't need them for the summer?

Also, why is WestJet getting them from Delta with the unique seating? I'm sure there are other 738s out there with more appropriate seating available?

anyone know? Seems like a bizzare arrangement.

eh well its a pretty nice question you asked TNNH,.
I guess one of the reason is that its a fellow carrier based in North America so its easier to get the planes rather than lease them from like Qantas which is 16000km away.
And I think the leasing price may of been cheaper thus enabling westjet to snag the two off of Delta Shuttle without much problem.

They will be used for only 7 months its just to fill the most heavily used routes until more -700s arrive. Looks like their -700 orders are way down the list of all the others that needs to be built and delivered.

Oh Mark: Ya sure if it is sitting outside tomorrow I'll snag a couple shots of it provided the sun is good. Glad I dont have to work tomorrow  Smile I worked today and just got back at 1130pm.
The second one will probably come like tomorrow or monday.. I just hope so! fingers are crossed!!!!
oh ya, Martin Air starts flying in on Mondays AMS-YEG-YYC-AMS route.
Also a hottie to snag.  Big thumbs up

YYC is starting to look like a true canadian Airport. Big grin

Hmm, the weather here is bad, in fact its worse than yesterday.

Shucks, I wont be going to YYC today because it is going to rain all day.
Also to top it off it looks like Rwy 16 is in use so It will be hard for me to spot and shoot picts of planes landing on 16 if say the other 800 arrives.

I hope tomorrow will be better.

The reason that they are getting delta airplanes is because Delta is the only other carrier in NA that has the exact same options for its 737NG's as WJ. All of the systems and features are the same, and as such very little extra training was required. the 737-800 is not certified to fly in Canada hence the us registration, and all pilots signed an FAA waver permitting them to fly the airplane.

Alright, Slawko said it well and it definetly makes sense.
American also has -800s but their configuration is different and it is not what Westjet had preferred. Same with ATA but it would be sweet to see winglet -800s with hybrid liverys.. Drool!

Anybody know what the exact version designation the leased 800s are?
the 700s for instance are all 76N.
