Aer Lingus 737 In STL?

Thu Feb 20, 2003 3:56 am

Coming back from the northeast yesterday on AA (finally), we landed in St Louis. As we were taxiing to the gate, I noticed an Aer Lingus 737 parked at one of the gates (kind of near the WN gates). It was green with the Shamrock, but I didn't see any name on the aircraft.

Who owns it, and what's it doing in St. Louis? Anyone know? (I did a search but couldn't find any info)

Yeah, that looks like the plane (except I could not see the Apple Vacations name on it). And I did a search, but maybe I didn't search far enough back.

The picture above is about thew best shot of the Apple Vacations logo; it's actually hard to see it in less than perfect light, even when you're only a hundred yards away! So don't feel bad.

It's interesting to note that this is probably the only 737 flying almost exclusively in the US by American pilots thats cockpit insturmentation is metric. I was talking to the pilot of this plane at ORD and he mentioned it was a pain converting gallons and weights before every departure.
