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.
|Quoting WorldTraveler (Reply 8):|
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.

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?
|Quoting Shamrocka330 (Reply 11):|
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?
|Quoting RobK (Reply 12):|
but of late their new ones have been sent to Prestwick for temporary storage, but don't ask me why.

My mate flies for Ryanair, he's German. Or does he have to put on a Irish accent when he's at work?
|Quoting FlyDreamliner (Reply 15):|
That flight is amazing - almost sounds like a record distance for a 738.
|Quoting OyKIE (Reply 9):|
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.
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 17):|
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.
