What Has Become Of Airtrans 737s?

Did Airtran send their former B737-200s to the Scrapyard? How many do they still operate?

Funny You Should Ask

I was passing through Atlanta Hartsfield yesterday and saw 2 of them, each in a different paint job. One was painted like the 717's & DC9's, while the other had the "737" particular paint job. This past Thursday, I saw one 732 in the old paint scheme. It was clean.

Well, Airtran said that the new 717 would replace the 737 first. That increases commonality somewhat. But Airtran has not had that opportunity, since they have done some expansion, and used the new planes for that. So now maybe they are starting to scrap the 737s. Good thing, I say. While I love the 737-200, they are inefficient, and their frames are getting stressed beyond original intentions. I hate to see them go, but it is time to usher in the new age of aviation.
