Yeah, there was another thread this morning in which forum members were discussing Alaska's lack of planes for expansion. Obviously, these two new 737-700s might make future expansion into Florida or at Denver possible. Good news.

A little more info on this new order...looks like Alaska also converted one firm order for a 737-700 to a 737-900 for delivery next year. Total orders for the 737NG from Alaska now stand at 12 737-900s (5 delivered) and 19 737-700s (16 in service). Alaska will receive 1 -900 this year and 4 -900s and 3 -700s on 2003. The fleet will total 109 by 2003 according to Alaska CEO Bill Ayer. If this is true then this means that AS will only return one MD-80 by the end of 2003.
