Southwest 732's At Kbur

Mon Jan 09, 2006 3:24 pm

Do any of you recall if Southwest ever operated the now-retired 732's out of Burbank at any point?

Even prior to stage-III being the law of the land, Burbank along with most of the SoCal airports were quite noise sensitive and were heavens for types like the 733, MD80 and BAe146's during their early years of service opposed to noisier types like the B727.
I cant quite recall SWA 732s at Burbank, however I would think the carrier would schedule the quieter types if at all possible at Burbank.

I do recall the PSA 727's, but I'm pretty certain all I ever saw was 737-300s. As a point of fact, however, when LUV began flying to BUR there was still a higher balance of -200's than -300s.

Sure, I also recall PSA B727s, Alaska B727s, Western 732s, however all were converted pretty fast to other types such as the MD80 or B733 once those models were available.

We did run -200s into BUR, but tried to run -300s and -500s whenever possible due to the better weights afforded by those aircraft over the -200. This became easier as time went on, given the increasing numbers of -300s and -500s in the fleet.

As the number of -200s started to dwindle via retirements, they were basically pulled away from the west coast to the central time zones, and crewed out of fewer bases.

One California airport that never saw a SWA -200 was SNA, which wasn't in our Op Specs. We didn't even use SNA as an alternate.

I remember seeing the old Frontier 732's at BUR as well as Western's in the late 1970's. The 727's and DC-9's seemed to dominate back then.

I remember flying on a WN 732 into BUR about 8-10 years ago. I remember not having to de-plane. I think it was a stop in my flight between SJC and PHX. To this day, that was my only time at BUR.

swa would only use the -200 out of bur as a sub, as quite often, the -200 broke the decibles regulated by bur for noise ordances, and thus, higher fees would have to be paid by the airline. rarely would swa route a -200 through bur because of this, and was only done when a maintenance sub was necessary

Yes, SWA and AWA did operate 737-200's out of BUR, AWA being the last.

I must say, I didn't think about the noise levels.. KBUR has more NIMBY's than any airport I've been to in a long time (save perhaps Long Beach).

UA operated the 722 into BUR from DEN until the late 90's.

with that, ua even operated the 727-200 into bur out of den late before retirement of the a/c. the flight arrived early evening and then operated back to den at about 830am-9sih hour. i got bumped from an hp flight to phx back to arizona one early morning from their first bur-phx flight, and i was rebooked to phx on ua via den in first class, and it was on the 727 flight.

That is not what I was asking. I was asking what he meant by his statement about patching it up and putting it back where it belongs, which I am guessing means still flying. I pointed out that N668SW was W/O. It just looked l was asking OPNLguy what W/O means

He knows what written off means... When he said "what do you mean by that" it was in reference to the other guy's mentioning SWA fixing up the aircraft (which didn't happen)...

It was a joke eluding to the destination of that aircraft.. the scrapyard. It was buckled right down the middle, in addition to all of the wing and engine damage.

Relax! I'm a SWA fan.  Smile
