Since I haven’t seen much publicity around the MD-80 retirement, here is the first quick video I’ve seen.

I didn't realize they were parading that many MD-80s to retirement at the same time. I'm surprised they didn't hang on to them until after Christmas like DL did with the DC-9.

What's the thinking on what G4 might do with SJU? They've got SFB year-round and PIT, CVG, RDU coming back seasonally, all of which seem to be specific choices. Would they expand it even more if it works? Given what they seemed to do with some of the Florida destinations (start with PIT/CVG/IND, add later), places like LCK, IND, CLE might be possible in a second round in addition to more Florida-SJU.

They might be taking advantage of the low season to retrain pilots.

I personally thought they would keep them as spares. But they are deregistered, so that is that.

Both 319s, N321NV (G-EZIR) and N323NV (G-EZIT) have been painted, one is still at EMA one has moved to QLA. Three of the 320s; N242NV (EC-HQI), N243NV (EC-HQJ) and N244NV (EC-HQJ) have been painted and remain at OSR. N245NV (EC-HTD) is still active with Vueling. The remaining Saudia 320s are in extensive and lengthy refurb at RUH, JED and SAW, one is still active with Saudia.

I counted twelve Allegiant MD-80s sitting at the northeast corner of the new Stewart Industries complex at BHM this morning. Interestingly, one aircraft was running under its own power (could not make out registration) while sitting on the ramp. No work appears to have been started on any of the frames.

It will be interesting to observe the eventual disposition of these frames. I imagine that there have been a number of SUVs with Fulton County, Georgia license plates that have made the 2 hour drive west on I-20 to examine the new arrivals for parts.

In related news, the northern-most hanger of the complex suffered roof damage during a high wind event here in Birmingham December 8; BHM reported a 49 mph gust. Boom lifts and workers on the roof were visible this morning repairing the damage.

Rumors are some of those frames are getting converted to freighters. You might see life in them still!

Also on the rumor subject, it sounds like Delta has bought the JT8Ds on the current 80s sitting in SFB, which is why they are still there apperently. It will be interesting to see what happens to them as when they fly out.

Allegiant will move its TUS operations from the main terminal to the re-done ex-Intl terminal now dubbed C-gates early in January. I assume they're getting a cheaper deal than the main terminal. No restrooms post security. Not sure why TUS decided to redo a small facility that hadn't been used since 2008.

The facility has Customs and has been used since 2008 by private aircraft arriving from Mexico. It just has not been used by any commercial flights since then, when Aerolittoral (Aeromexico Connect) discontinued their Tucson-Hermosillo flight.

My guess is Allegiant is getting a lower cost location. There are no jetways or services like wifi or food.

Supposedly TUS will also move all charters to the redone C gates.

Customs is supposedly being encouraged to move to the building currently housing Tucson's executive terminal which will close the end of the year.

A319s N321NV (former G-EZIR) and N323NV (former G-EZIT) have been re-registered and should ferry from QLA and STN soon. This will bring the fleet to 37 x A319 on property.

That would make sense--would be crowded with both Customs and Allegiant in the same space.

I love the wording of title of this article almost insinuating that 60 Minutes had an effect on the MD-80 retirement.

Allegiant Air retires last of its aging fleet months after "60 Minutes" investigation

DL has not bought anything off of the G4 fleet.

DL has plenty of spares sourced with the drawdown of their own 88s.

Passing thru OPF in early November I saw 6 ex Allegiant aircraft. I read 4 of them off: 861 862 872 and 876. Through this thread I've identified 409Nv as the fifth. I haven't traced a sixth one though. Or did I somehow miscount?! If there is a 6th one there, I'd appreciate knowing which one. I photographed N417NV, still operating, at FLL November 10th.
