What airports in the U.S. served by WN still haven't got the MAX 8 yet?

Thu Oct 19, 2017 1:53 am

It must be an airport with regularly scheduled 737-800 service.
As of now, I can only think of 2 off the top of my head: ISP and PBI.

None yet to BDL, though Norwegian flies the MAX here.

Any airport not on this link.


Actually here in AUS I've seen two 7M8s arrive on flightaware; one from Phoenix, one from... I forget. Unless it was an error? I've seen this happen before, although it's not unlikely that we haven't seen the 7M8.

Also a bit off topic, but weren't all the 733s already retired?

SEA hasn't seen the MAX yet. IIRC it won't see it until the week around Christmas when it'll fly to BWI, although I may be wrong and the MAX might visit here before then.

That’s why FR24 is a more reliable source for aircraft types.

I’m assuming SNA won’t see it, but maybe I’m wrong.

I’m surprised SMF and SJC haven’t yet

This list is useful, but WN has run some non-scheduled one-off substitutions for the -800s. I had such a surprise last week. I was in New England and chose to pick up a flight from MHT to BWI and found that the -800 at the gate was an unscheduled Max-8. The gate personnel made a point of announcing it was WN's first Max at MHT and that the plane was brand new. The cabin crew seemed to enjoy playing with the cabin lights. They did a cool red, white and blue pattern during boarding. The seats in the Max are different from the WN previous standard. More of a grey shade and a bit firmer in my opinion. A very nice ride, of course. People will like them.

Yes, one off subs are to be expected. Posted the list for routes that will see scheduled service.

And why is that? WN has ordered 150 MAX 8's. It's WN's next-gen -800-size aircraft. ROC has -800's regularly scheduled.

Do you just like beating up on ROC, like the nasty guy in Buffalo does?

No I don't, I just figured that because ROC couldn't sustain service to MDW that they couldn't sustain service with a larger aircraft.

ROC-MDW had good loads and was likely profitable, but it had a low PDEW count (21, I think). WN determined that MDW's limited space was better used elsewhere. It's part of a larger trend; WN has been growing STL again to move connections away from increasingly saturated MDW. So ROC-MDW was cut, and an additional ROC-BWI was added. 800's are commonly used on ROC-BWI, according to FlightAware. I've also seen them there.

Not quite sure of the day (or if it was a scheduled flight), but there was definitely a MAX8 flying into SEA either early this week or late last week (upturned tail, grey lower winglets, chevrons on the engines).

As long as ROC has regularly scheduled 738 service there is a chance that the MAX will pop up soon.

I am a nasty guy?? I lived in Rochester and didnt like it. Its not a great city. I am sorry.


Anyways .... MAX will most likely pop up one day in Rochester. Happy? Just wait till Southwests a few more. It will eventually happen.

Seems a little early to ask this. In the list of routes, there are a lot of 1x weekly routes. When WN gets more some of the holes may fill in. I'd say not all stations will get it.
