Air Berlin 737-808?

Thu Jul 19, 2007 1:28 am

Hi there.

Often, I am a bit slow, and some of us don't have time to use the search engine. I hope you respect that!
Anyway, I've only just noticed that the latest Air Berlin 738 uses the customer code "08" which is, if I'm not mistaken the customer code for Icelandair.

So, what I want to know is:
Is it leased from Icelandair?
Did Icelandair order 738s but didn't take on this order and the planes went to Air Berlin?

Thanks anyway.

Icelandair bought a bunch of 738's to lease out, most are leased out in China.

Another 12 B737-808s are active with Air China, Hainan, Hong Kong Airlines, Hong Kong Express and Sunwing.

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!
