I have a photo of an AirTran 717 in the upload queue, but it is a tight front shot and the only clue I have is the number on the nosegear door: 764. It is Fleet # 764, and in Bill Harm's Census he does not list Fleet #s for all AT 717 jets. I think it is a very new plane because Fleet #761 was shown as delivered in May '02 and several others were listed with the latest delivery as 10/16/02 but no Fleet #s for those.

Can someone who knows the AirTran fleet help me with the reg. of Ship #764?

My best educated guess would be that #764 is N992AT. I myself looked at Bill Harms' list also, so this is just a theory on my part. Sorry I wasn't more helpful. Regards.

Ship 764 is indeed N992AT. 761 is N989AT Sooooo... If you do the math

761 = 989AT
762 = 990AT
763 = 991AT
764 = 992AT

764 was delivered in September of this year.

My Question is why did they jump from the 730s to the 760s

Ships 701-730 are -2BD which is Boeing's customer code for FL
Ships 760-769 are -23S that were for the failed start-up Vuelamex that
went to FL.

IIRC Vuelamex was supposed to have 4 717s which had the -23S customer code. If you look on Bill Harms's site, you will see ships 764-769 with the -2BD customer code. I am guessing Vuelamex had these on order, but before certification was passed, AirTran got them so they got the -2BD code. But if that happened, why would the ovens come with them. I'm stumped. I know 760, 761, 762, and 763 are -23S, but what is the deal with the 76_ 2BDs?

Actually the 3S code is for Pembroke Capital, which was going to lease the 4 a/c to VuelaMex, and the original regos for those a/c were EI-CWJ, EI-CWK, EI-CWM, and EI-CWN. But when VuelaMex failed to get an O.C., they were not delivered to VuelaMex, and Pembroke ended up leasing them to AirTran.

SRBMOD, That is what I am talking about. Why do the -BD aircraft have the -3S interiors. and why are they being counted as ex-Vuelamex planes. I know that Vuelamex was getting 4 717s, but never did. AirTran got those 4, but now the 717-2BDs they are recieving have the same interior the Pembroke jets. The 717-2BDs before the pembrokes have the standard airtran galley.
