Hey cool!!! Thank you for providing the information.

By the way. I seem to remember that when SAS brought the MD-90 over seas they flew first to the east coast, and then was able to fly directly to Bergen (westcoast of Norway) if the weather was good, or else they had to do a tech stop in Iceland.

I guess that's the longest that this Ryanair bird will ever do.

This has inspired a question now. Who actually flies the delivery flights. Is is the pilots of the airline or the Aircraft Manufacturer pilots. If its the latter i assume they get a schedule plane back. Anyone knows how it all works.

Thanks

AFAIK the airline sends its own pilots to pick up the aircraft.

Yes Ryanair's own pilots drive them home. The distinctive Irish accent is always heard on the radio as they leave BFI.

the pilots go and airlines usually send delivery engineers. just like a car, when you accept delivery, you are assuming responsibility for it. once you agree all is well, it's yours.

As mentioned before it is the airlines who brings home the airplanes. I would pay a great deal of money to get on a flight flike this.

Interesting that the route took it over KEF in Iceland - I presume this was a precaution - staying closer to land, or is it related to ETOPS?

Thanks for the info Robk, I went out to the airport and saw it arriving at 14:46! Another lovely, clean aircraft for Ryanair!

Just a quick question on this aircraft....it parked at a remote stand at the moment, when can it go into service? Do they have to wait for registration confirmation/ certification, Ryanair equipment etc before it can perform its first revenue flight?

The acceptance flight - which is what you're referring to I believe - is a separate flight altogether and done under a Boeing callsign. Only when the the airline/engineers/pilots are happy that everything is okay will it then leave on its ferry flight.

Probably neither, just weather patterns and that route was the best tail wind component. ETOPS doesn't come into it on ferry flights anyway.

Their new ones have been known to go into service on the same day after arriving from the US iirc, but of late their new ones have been sent to Prestwick for temporary storage, but don't ask me why.

That flight is amazing - almost sounds like a record distance for a 738.

My mate flies for Ryanair, he's German. Or does he have to put on a Irish accent when he's at work?

I wouldn't be surprised if it was close. A BBJ (737-700) did BFI/SEA-JED, which is the record flight for any 737. Did they tank this thing?

Hapag LLoyd offered that recently for the delivery flights of their new 738s. Was about e 2K IIRC which included the trip to SEA and Hotels etc.

Should be cheaper on FR, around € 999.99

This is most curious. I checked the Flightaware link and they don't even have the FR ICAO code listed. Which means that RYR900M is listed as "Unknown owner".  Silly

Usually FR delivery flights use to stop in Keflavik.

Isn´t there a great chance that this RYR bird was souped up with some ferry tanks inside the cabin for this flight? It don´t have to be per automation an ordinarilly fueled up A/C.

Yes, this was a couple of years back now. Was N737ER, record is still to be broken!

AirBerlin once flew a delivery flight nonstop from BFI to TXL - I think the longest flight for a B737-800 - approx 10 hours

The HapagFly deal was just special deal for 3 deliveries on one day - they all flew via KEF
