Also Hikes mentioned it in the other thread: RE: Alaska's "Starliner 75" Debuts Feb 27th (by HikesWithEyes Feb 24 2007 in Civil Aviation)

Hope to see it enter service soon.

It was a flap issue affecting 737-800s with SFP (short field performance).
Not sure when N569AS will be delivered.
First, benzene in my Perrier, and now this!

Damnit, I'll be back to work in a week. No chance of seeing that bird on it's debut run then.

No idea why Boeing is holding up delivery? Anyone?
