WestJet's 100th Plane

Mon Jan 16, 2012 4:48 pm

Anyone at WS have an indication of when you folks will hit 100 birds? By my count you're a few shy. Anything special planned for the 100th?

WS operates 97 NG's and 1 757 (short term lease ending in April).

According to atdb.org, 2 more 738's are due in 2012. The 100th NG will be a 73G in Jan 2013.

According to the Westjet fleet plan in their annual report, 3 738's are due in 2012, so the 100th NG will be later this year.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Or it could be a Q400 depending how fast things go!

I had no idea they had grown that much. Good to hear.

Actually... it really could happen that fast... (Unlikely, but possible.)
