How Old Are ALOHA's 732's?

Thu Apr 13, 2006 6:23 am

If anyone knows the age of the ALOHA's 732's, can you please share this information. I took a flight recently on ALOHA and even though the interior had leather seats, the plane was showing its age
B732/3/4/5/6/7/8/9, B742/4, B752/3,B762/3/4, B772/3, A306, A318/9/20/21, A332/3, A343/6, MD80/83/88, L1011, TU104/134, F

I flew them last year and I thought they were in brilliant shape.
They were fantastic rides and I feel lucky to fly them again this year - nothing beats the flight performance of a 732... sun

Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.

They are just bringing in various newer B737-200s to replace older aircraft in the fleet.

Quoting Thomas_Jaeger (Reply 3):

The funny thing is that they already operate a 'young' fleet of 732s - they are probably looking for 737-200s that only have few cycles. Former DL aircraft might be worth a try.

Do you know whether this one will be used as a freighter?
