Re: Boeing Forecasts Air Cargo Traffic Will Double in 20 Years

I am wondering when the 737MAX and the 787 will be available as freighters? I’ve had a FX pilot recently show me a PowerPoint from the company that mentions it as a 757 replacement? Also told me the company maybe even looking into a potential 797F.. (Take this with whatever grain of salt you want to)

As a Flight Attendant it is encouraged to do this when we arrive into the more warmer climates. Being based out of LAS, it greatly helps cool the plane down.

Re: WN livery repaints

717,464,738 are all still in the Old Colors. 945 (Florida One) should be getting paint before the summer.

Rules of thumb for paint.

Avg paint for regular livery is 8-9 days.

Avg paint for specialty livery is 12 days.

GEG and VCV are where WN paints their planes.
