UA 737-222/522

Thu Oct 05, 2006 6:43 am

Boarded a UA 737-522 yesterday and, as I usually do, glanced up at the data plate inside the boarding door. This one had -222 scratched out and -522 etched in just below with an electric etcher. Typo or a conversion?

Sorry, didn't catch the line number or tail number.

Pretty sure I know the answer, but still curious.

Wonder why they did not change the Data plate in the first place.Will the Etching be Fireproof.

I'd be more interested in the authority to modify a dataplate if I were still in the FSDO.

Hey, perfect opportunity to ask this:

So far, i've only been able to find date of manufacture plates (which seems like the same thing discussed here) on MD-80s. It's on the left side of the main cabin door jamb when entering. Since discovering this, i've looked on every plane I've boarded, but haven't been able to find it in the second or two I'm actaully standing in the doorway. Any advice on where to find them on 737s, DC-9s, Airbuses, and so on?

Our B737s & B757s have them on the LH Aft Bulkhead inside the Flight deck.

On the A320's it's still in the same spot,but you really have to be looking to catch it

it's one of those silly little perks of riding AA MD-80s, especially last time. This past august, I checked the plate while boarding one, and was pleased to see that I was riding a plane that was celebrating its 20th birthday. I believe it was August 6th; gotta check the boarding pass, which is probably crumpled in the bottom of my bag.
