ATA To Acquire 47 Boeing 737-800s & 757-300s

Mon May 08, 2000 4:33 am

American Trans Air (ATA) plans to purchase 10 757-300s and 20 737-800s. ATA plans to lease an additional 17 737-800s. The first North American operator to use the new 757-300. Maybe the next is National Airlines.

Their 737-800s have the new option of having a "blended-winglet". Its eight-foot-tall winglets enable the airplane to fly farther, burn 3 percent to 5 percent less fuel, or carry up to 6,000 pounds more payload.

I love the Ata Livery on the 757-300. It doesnt make the plane look so long.

All I can say is, its different.
Dosent mean we have to like it, it must be functional.

You might say it looks like a mechanic just bended the tip with ropes pulling it from a truck on the other end.

ATA sucks. I hate their paint scheme. It is so tacky for ANY airline.
