Alaska Questions - New Combis And Retro Livery

Thu Feb 01, 2007 10:13 pm

Two questions for you:

1) What news on the 734 combis? These are now long overdue and their non-arrival must be beginning to cause real problems. I'm really looking forward to seeing these - from both inside and out.

2) What news on the retro livery? A selection of these appeared on a.net and alaskasworld.com a few months back, waiting for employee votes, but has now gone rather quiet (my vote, if i'd had one, would've been for 'Golden Nugget Jet').

I dont think the 734 combi's are flying yet. 709 is the only 734 flying that was converted, but thats cargo only. The rest of the 734C's are behind schedule the last time I heard.

741 and 742 (both -200s) are still flying... they buzz past fox row every morning at ANC. Also, interestingly, retired aircraft 745 was parked at Fox-3 Tuesday, loaded some stuff, and taxied out for departure. Only the rudder and nosecone are painted in AS livery... the rest is all white. Couldn't figure out where she'd be going without paint, unless AS needed her pushed back into service for some reason. Or maybe there was a customer....

Because the 734C's are behind schedule in the retrofit.

I just hope the bulkhead wall has some insulation between the front cargo and the rear passenger cabins. The 200 got some serious winds/drafts in places like BRW and SCC and you would feel like you were going to freeze while waiting for the ramp to finish loading the igloos in the front.

Can someone post a link to the four retro livery choices? I remember feeling very strongly about it, and also remember that there was not a whole lot of consensus here on a.net. That is to say, I thought one was great, the other three were horrible, and yet no one agreed with me or with each other!!!

So 745 went to Tucson? Is it in 'storage' or what?

Awesome first time I hear about a Alaska retro jet but frankly Alaska is one of the few airlines where I prefer their current paint scheme over the past ones.
Alaska today has one of the best and most outstanding liveries there is. The logo with the eskimo is just brilliant !!
What kind of aircraft will carry the paint scheme a -400, -700, -800 or -900 ?

P.S.
After checking the data base I have noticed that there are still MD 80s in service with AS. I thought they have been all retired a few months ago.
I am very pleased to see them still flying in AS colors !!

Were these not originally due in early summer 2006, then fall 2006, then December?

Since a few seem to have been delivered at once, have they now caught up with the original delivery schedule? I guess that AS was sending the aircraft for conversion according to plan but due to the certification issues it was not getting them back when expected. Until now, of course.

I froze my butt off in November while sitting in Kotzebue for 45 minutes waiting for the continuation of flight 151 to Nome. Thankfully AS's amazing Anchorage based flight attendants had fresh HOT coffee brewed the minute the doors opened to help keep us warm. The flight attendants looked so funny wearing their bulky trench coats in an attempt to keep warm as their walked down the isle (all six rows) serving coffee. + =

What a money loosing airplane, and I blame the FAA and their idiotic overkill fire rules that prevent installation of a movable bulkhead like the older QC'S had.

There is no way they will be able to efficently use theis aircraft.

In other news a little birdie told me that one of the remaining -200's might be going to the Alaska Aviation Heritage Museum. I haven't had that confirmed yet, and I have no idea where they would park it.

Yep, feel strongly. The second, predominantly blue, choice. Followed by the red tail. The others are just... plain.

They're more fuel-efficient, FAR more reliable, carry more freight AND passengers than the -200Cs they replace. How is it you think AS won't be able to use them efficiently?

I'm not aware of any combi set ups where the cargo is in back, but I don't know so much about what other combi airlines are doing. I think for weight and balance reasons, the cargo usually needs to be towards the front. I do know that on ALL of our combi aircraft the cockpit and the passenger cabin have always been separated by the cargo area. On the -200 combis there was a small door on the firewall that, when opened, led to a narrow pathway to the cockpit. On the new -400 combis, there is no access to the cockpit what so ever. We do, however, have a FA sitting forward of the firewall that has absolutely NO repsonsibilities what so ever. They are not there to feed and water the pilots and they have no safety responsibilities on board, save for possibly having to put out any unlikely fires in the cargo area during flight. The only reason they are there is because the FAA won't back off their demand of requiring the third FA having to be up there.... They aren't even responsible for arming the emergency exit doors up there, so basically, you just sit there and do nothing for an entire trip.

Unless I've gone completely senile, the 747 combis have the freight area in the rear (no dirty jokes about that comment, kids). Yes I know it's a completely different beast, but it just seems to make better sense. But obviously I'm no aviation engineer -- the 737 must not have been well-suited to that arrangement, I guess...

Not quite sure how to take that... I have an idea, why don't you try and make something personal out of something that isn't?

Anyhow, to counter the portion of your post that actually has substance, I disagree. AA's livery was well known nationwide, and is exciting, with a lightning bolt down the side. It also has the distinctive eagle logo on the tail. Compare this to Alaska's offering, wherein a fuselage is painted gunmetal gray, with two pinstripes down the side, and there you have it- distinctly Aeroflot.

Now, to put things back into perspective, I didn't say that it looked communist compared to American or Delta or Northwest Orient (which it does, but I didn't say that). It looks communist in comparison to the other offerings pictured. Bold blue nose, tail, and stripe; red swoosh tail; classic golden nugget jet logos.... or, gunmetal gray with a pinstripe.

Once again, communist.

Have a nice day, ya'll!

Where's the Can-Can dancer. One is missing!
