Saw My First WN 738 Today!

Fri Jun 22, 2012 1:08 am

Yea I know. Some of you are saying big whoop. But it's sightings like that, that excite all of us at one time or another. Felt the same way when I posted here the first time I saw my first E145XR. It's exciting for me as we don't get many opportunities like this in STL any more. We have been lucky to see the 787 and the 748F recently though. Still, it was fun to see something new pass though!

I'm working my 1st trip on the 800! Once we get past the differences in the A/C, particularly galley and service procedure, It's a great plane to work on!

I work for WN and have yet to see my first -800. I had someone use a buddy pass on one the other week and was annoyed that they got to get one one before me! I'm sure my time will come eventually!

I got to see one in Renton a couple months ago. Gotta say...looked almost exactly like the other hundreds of WN planes

Quoting SW733 (Reply 4):

Know what you mean. I did a double take initially after I noticed the twin emergency exits over the wings. Bit of a giveaway there.

I saw my first -800 yesterday when I was waiting at BWI during a layover. It taxied by and it didn't occur to me that it was an -800 until I saw "ETOPS" printed above the rear door! I gotta say, the plane fills the colorscheme very nicely!

(BTW, it was going to LAX when I saw it)

And I share you excitement. Beautiful plane!

I'm jealous

Have not spot WN 737-800

Would love to some day... 4 flight attendants on all WN 738 flights, is that correct?
