This aircraft was originally destined for Spanair Link and painted in full colors as (N6204C) but was not taken up. The aircraft was then painted in the colors of VuelaMex a new Mexico City based airline. Due to the Mexican Government's delay to issue the new airline its flight certificate, the airline's four undelivered 717 aircraft will now go to other airlines. This aircraft has now been painted in the colors of AirTran and awaits delivery to same.
