CO And The B-737

Mon Dec 18, 2006 11:41 pm

Can anyone think of an airline that has flown more models of the 737 at one time or another in their history? I know Continental has flown the -100 and -200 and are currently operating the -300, -500, -700, 800 and -900. Just missing the -400 and -600 for the clean sweep.

They need more!!!
The B737 is in my opinion the best A/C ever excluding the 747. I hope CO gets some of the new 737ER to replace all their 757 one day.
Little airports with the big jets are the best!! Floyd

All these 737 have been operated in SAS colors at one time

737-300 (Ex-linjeflyg)
737-400 (Ex-Braathens)
737-500 (Ex-Braathens
737-600
737-700
737-800

That is just one short of Continental. However. since Braathens used to fly the 737-200 you could say that this is a part of SASBraathens history so at some time all but the -900 and -100 have been operated by SAS and SASBraathens.

IIRC, AS has also operated a large number of 737 variants; the -200, -300, -400, -700, -800 and -900.

They have orders for IIRC 24 900ER's, and the B752's a very diverse aircraft that serves CO quite well with excellent range and at high altitude airports by not having to weight restrict departures due to engine out requirements.

Nope, no -300s. Not currently, and none in the past that I am aware of. Could be wrong... did they inherit some after they slaughtered MarkAir???

It appears that you are correct. I didn't find any AS -300s in a quick search just now, so I stand (well, sitting actually) corrected. Thanks for the correction.

In what year did CO start flying the 737? I remember years ago they flew MD-80's, DC-9's and 72's, but no 73's.

Yes, -200s from the original Frontier, -100s and -200s from PE. 737-300s (-3TOs (Texas Air)) began arriving in 1985, IIRC.

No proof of any AS B737-300, but sure AS has flown (and is still flying) the most B737 combi versions of any airline.

Never had the 733. AS is pretty much the only US airline that operates any combi conversion. Hence as to why they build their own pallets in SEA.

MarkAir was all 400's.
