Those literally make sense.


Guessing Apple might have you for that. But it’s a great naming scheme. (Might as well have a 757XR for the cheap one)

Re: AA kicks passenger off airplane after he has allergic reaction to "emotional support" pet

I was on a WN flight that they said they would not be serving peanuts because of a person with an allergy. A few minutes later the person volunteered to get off and we were served peanuts after all.

Most likely those in storage. The 737max blogspot site shows: KPAE-30, KBFI-59, and KSKF-4. So 93 altogether.
