Amazon Air adding Boeing 737-800BCF to fleet

Wed Apr 03, 2019 4:33 pm

It appears Amazon Air is adding 20 Boeing 737-800BCFs to be operated by Southern Air (9S) for at least 7 years with an option to extend for an additional 3 years. From the article, there is also a pic of a new (modified) Prime Air livery. I believe this would be the first operator of the -800BCFs in the US. Pretty cool!

That livery looks great on the 738. Former ATA bird too!

Too bad it is phony. Plus, no way would they out that much color on a cargo bird they don't own I bet. Should be all white LOL.. :)
Riddle: Which lasts longer, a start-up airline or a start-up football league?

I saw this the other day. Its really interesting news. As the available 757 feedstock dwindles (and 767 frankly), we will probably see a lot of 738 conversions. Its great for the express carriers. An article also mentioned Alibaba is starting to get 747 capacity.
