Jet Airways 738 @ EWR

Fri Apr 12, 2013 12:52 am

There's a Jet Airways 738 parked at a remote stand abeam Gate 32, at the intersection of taxiways A and RB. Anyone know why it's there?

Probably a tech stop on it's delivery flight from Washington.

The 738 is VT-JNZ, it is being returned to lessor and ferried DEL-KWI-BRU-KEF-EWR-GWO.

Hope this help!

GWO.

So that means that it is probably going to be scrapped? I think that GWO is usually a one-way trip for large aircraft.

The aircraft is less than 11 years old. Why would they see is necessary to scrap it? (Not disagreeing with you, just thinking out loud).

Maybe it is in poor condition? Kingfisher treated their leased A320s so poorly that evidently 15 may be scrapped and I thought there was a thread about another Indian carrier with poorly-treated leased aircraft.

That is true, good point. I had thought 9W were pretty good at maintaining their fleet, but I'm not an expert so I have nothing to prove this.

I'm not going crazy! I saw it there this morning and in my extremely fatigued state, figured I was mistaking a 332 for a 738. I could not figure out why I could not see Door 2 or Door 3 or why it had overwing exits.

If I am not mistaken, there was a topic here that a fellow member spotted a B738 @ BRU I think this is the same 738. In that topic, somebody reported that 738 is being returned to lessor but I don't know if it is being scrapped or not.

All the new narrowbodies being built are significantly increasing the demand (and therefore the price) of spare parts. This means that scrapping a current generation aircraft is more financially viable than ever before as they are worth more as parts than as a plane. Last year two not particularly old (2004) easyjet 737-700s were scrapped in the UK for this reason. They were G-EZKC, G-EZKD.

VT-JNZ was delivered in 2002.

Jet Airways usually does not retain an aircraft for more than 10 years. Maintenance wise, there are ni issues with 9W. All it's aircraft are in good condition.
An airplane might disappoint any pilot but it'll never surprise a good one.

We see 9W's 738 from time to time. (Almost) every new one passes through BRU on it's delivery flight to 9W.
As they have daily operations here, they can use the services of their normal ground handler for these deliveries too.

I know some newer A320's have been scrapped. I get that they are worth parts. I don't think I've heard of any 738's being scrapped however. As far as I know they are still in demand.

I've flown on JNZ a few times, Jet does take decent care of its birds, so if it is being scrapped that would be odd... But as others have pointed out, not unheard of.
