How many a/c does AS have left to repaint? Prior to activity this month, the carrier had 1 737-700, 9 737-800, and 32 737-900 aircraft remaining for repaint. the -700 (N607AS), two of the -800 (N559AS & N560AS), and the one non-ER -900 (N318AS) on the list are in special colors: 2635144,2808954...Jump to post
I just noticed, the clip that ends with the close-up of N404PA uses 2 different planes. The plane landing has exhaust silencers. From what I've been able to find, 404 was built as a B model, no silencers. Quoting from the IMDb for the Dimension 5 movie regarding continuity goofs: "The N number...Jump to post

Looks like TAP to me.
I meant it reminds me of the old AI livery. It definitely is TAP.
I personally prefer the current livery. This is pretty forgettable.
N557CC on a flight to SBD, just at FL280 all the way, what is going on? Conversation postponed? https://www.flightradar24.com/N557CC/2522e3d8 EDIT: will not rule out this might be a FR24 glitch, because this is weird.

On a related note, in aircraft with catering in the belly, is there a catering access door, or does everything go on and off through the passenger deck?

Not too sure if this has been asked before or not. But is there a market for the 757s to be converted to freighter operations? I know that the 767s definitely will be converted since majority of Americans 767s are with airlines like Prime Air. As for the 757s, I know FedEx, DHL, and UPS have quite ...Jump to post
I was able to visually confirm split scimitars on N8619F today, so that leaves the six 737-800 frames I mentioned in my post yesterday still lacking them.

Is anyone keeping tabs on the status of split-scimitar installation to Southwest's fleet? I know that most of the 737-800 aircraft now have them, with at most 7 frames still to go. N8619F probably has them; I just have not had visual confirmation of that fact either in person or via photograph. That...Jump to post
Given the posts in the TCX bankruptcy thread, I have a suspicion the intel is correct and this is a non-starter.

747B was a designation first used in the late-1960s to market increase gross weight versions of the 747. There were to be passenger 747Bs, Convertible freighters, and pure freighter 747Bs.

The airplane that became the 767 began as a Boeing project designated the 7X7. At that time (mid 1970's), three or more engines were needed for intercontinental service.

Southwest looks at all aircraft, including the Bombardier CSeries—but he has no interest in anything but the 737 “as long as I am CEO.” That sentence is not logically consistent.
