How Many Southwest Planes....

Mon Jan 12, 2004 5:52 am

How many Southwest planes have the new interiors, and how many have the old interiors still. Does anyone know how many have gone into the shop and gotten the new interiors yet? Any help would be appreciated. (As of March 2004)

According to an article I saw, as of Oct 2003, only about 25% of the Southwest fleet had the new interiors (of course, by now, that may be a little higher). The article also said the retrofit program had been accelerated so all of the planes would have the new look by the end of 2005. It was originally scheduled to be done in 2010. I personally have not been on any Southwest planes with the new interior yet.

Hope that helps a little! Bet someone will come up with better numbers soon.
