This plane was not supposed to be repainted, however went in for it's D check, and maintenance repainted it. It cost that company $300,000+, we did not pay a dime for it. There are 2 -200's painted in the new colors, neither of which have the new interior.
I flew on this aircraft back in August from JAX-FLL, it did have the club seating interior on it, and was in the new scheme at that time as well...wasnt aware that it was one of the only 732 in the new colors...

They still have a ton. No word on their retirement. I think that they ordered more 73G's to take over on some -200 routes though. I saw a lot of them take off at AUS today, man do they make a ton of black, thick smoke!
One thing I don't like about it is, you always know the traditional Gold and Red of WN, then when you see that from a distance, you think "what the hell airline is that" then you realize they repainted their planes.
I rode on the repainted 732 back in october, IND-STL. Man was it a nice ride, but the interior was in pretty bad shape. I was hoping to see the new leather, but no such luck. Did I mention how smooth the ride was? Loved it better than the 73G on my connecting flight.
