ATA: 757, 737-800/300/757-300!

Sat Feb 03, 2001 6:59 am

I heard ATA will be purchasing, new 737-300's, 737-800's, 757-200's/It will be the North American launch customer for the 757-200, and 737-800 with winglets.
Any details?

They have ordered 10 757-300's and 39 737-800's (with winglets). They should begin taking delivery of those planes in the second quarter of this year.

They are the first North American airline to get the 757-300 and 737-800 with winglets.

Do not be suprised if we see ATA placing an order for the 767-400ER or LR.

ATA could not be getting new 737-300s since they're no longer produced. You surely meant North American launch for the 757-300, not -200.

I didn't know about those winglets. Are you sure? I mean, I have looked at all the photos of their planes, that is, the new 738s which were built and delivered this week. Let me try again. A couple have been built, one was delivered this week. But I didn't see any winglets. And I didn't know winglets were an option for the 753.

Go Here, Got Pics

go to this link, it's a whole page taken by Sun Country employees of the new 738, which HAS been delivered. Sorry folks, but there are clearly no winglets on this aircraft.

About The 737-300

Sat Feb 03, 2001 11:47 am

I do remember reading somewhere that they were getting used -300s, 13 of them. Although don't take my word for it.

737-800 Winglets....

Winglets are an OPTION to the 738. SunCountry may not have ordered them on theirs, but ATA has. Vist

to read the press release. On ATA's site there is a pic of the 753 and the 738 w/winglets. They are so UGLY!

I had recalled reading that ATA would get the 737-700 instead of the 800, and the drawing had the 737-700 with winglets. I knew about the 757-300 and the 757-200s but I didn't hear anything about 737-300s.

When does ATA take delivery of the 757-300?

I don't ever recall reading or hearing about new 737-700s or used 737-300s joining the fleet. It seems that the fleet renewal has always focused around the 757-300 and 737-800 with winglets. Regarding a widebody order, a leasing company (I don't recall the name but it wasn't ILFC) recently ordered 13 or so A330-200s which were rumored to be destined for ATA. I'll have to look up the press release.
