Bugger. I've been on almost all versions of the 737 but somehow I never managed to fly on the -600. Looks like my chances are narrowing ever further.



Well, you have Westjet, Tunisair and Air Algérie to choose between. Hurry up :)

Last flown this plane from Kirkenes to Oslo in December 2017. Old interior and legroom was ok. After this aircraft was retired, it will be scrapped with the other 736s as well?


It will most likely be scrapped as all the other 737-600s have gone that path.

Today LN-RPG will conduct its last flight thus becoming history in SAS. The flight will also be the last European operated model. SK600 will fly between ARN and OSL and is scheduled to takeoff at 13:30 CET. Flight time is estimated at 2 hours so it might be possible that the plane will first head do...

Re: India tells IndiGo to Replace all A320neo Engines After 4 Shutdowns in a Week

Second and this is really important, the air pollution in India. The pollution is so worse, it kills the jet engines early. Sorry, but no other engine is getting busted due to pollution, including CFM Leap And since burning jet fuel itself produces pollution wouldn't it be weird if engines stop wor...

Hi guys, the SAS "painting-department" has provided the following paint-schedule. We will have to wait until mid 2024 before all aircrafts have been redone. However they are not providing any info on the increasing number of sub-contractors (WX ++) https://frequentflyer.no/2019/10/19/sas-...

Re: 737NG Pickle fork issue

I think, it is to early to speculate about the winglets as the culprit. Lots of older frames never had winglets. The SAS frame, not to be repaired, should be a 737-600, as they are being retired, and the 767-600 at SAS did not have winglets. I recall a post earlier stating the SAS frame that was cr...

According to avherald the plane landed with gear up. Does not mean it is correct, been many times they have corrected things are facts develop.

The QRH procedure would be to have them down. I didn't hear the normal chimes on either the takeoff or landing videos to in...
