When Is The Final Ryanair 732 Due For Retirement?

Mon Mar 01, 2004 1:38 am

Although there are still quite a few around, does anyone know when FR plan to retire their final 732? Will frequencies be affected once the 738's replace the 732's?

Given the planned retirement of the 737-200's, and the cost of repairing any affected aircraft, the board of Ryanair have decided that it would not be economically viable to carry out these repairs and any of these aircraft, so affected, will be retired," Ryanair said

No news about when the 732 will be retired, but info on which aircraft will replace them can be found here:

I know of at least 2 which have come through SEN in recent months for repairs and checks.

EI-CJI and the Hertz Plane.

RJ100, I'd say almost definitely, as that is where most of them are now. On the DUB runs.

It's almost certain that you'll be on a 732 flight - there are no photos of a 737-800 in the a.net database at BHX, only 732's.

Wasn't EI-CJI stored for some time?

I flew on it in July, and shortly afterwards, it was put in storage by Ryanair. To my surprise I saw pictures of it on this site taken in January 2004.

Was the original plann to withdraw it from use, but have they changed their mind now?

Any info about this frame is welcome...

Thanks

The 'Jaguar' 732 was on the DUB-LBA sector this afternoon, saw it doing what seemed to be a visual approach from Elland Road during the Leeds-Liverppol match. Very steep turn over the ground which isn't on the normal approach.

Acc. to what heard theyhad some of the 732s at FLS Dublin for heavy checks. A contract company was supposed to paint the planes. Part of the paint job is toremove the fillet sealant at the skin lap joints and to replace it. Some monkeys must have used metal scrapers and box cuttersto cut the sealant and put deep scratches into the skin in this vital area. Very hard and expensive to control and repair. I´ve heard that 3 planes were grounded, pending arguments about who is going to pay for the repair or possible scrapping.
