America West B737-277's

Sat Feb 13, 1999 11:28 am

G'day All..
l have an old JP airline fleets book, and l was having a look at it when l came across Ansett's old B737-200's which America West now operate. The book now being 4 years old, l was just wondering if these aircraft are still with America West..The rego's are N178AW -> N189AW. Also if they are still around, is there any planned replcements.??
Many Thanks...

If my information is correct, the 737-200s will be phased out by the end of the year.

Hey there this isn't regarding the AmWest 737's. Acutally I may not be able to help with that, my Jp fleets list is even older. Thanks for the info on the L1011 smokey starts! I've flown on 3 of them now, all Delta's. I knew it was something to do with fuel flow etc. It does seem like a waste of fuel the way it just rolls out so profusely! However, something else comes to mind. I remember when British Airways was still flying their older 747-200s with the older RB211's but they never did what the L1011's engines do when they started. Just a different series of the same engine i suppose. I tell you though when you are down on the ground and one of those things is in the alley you feel it in your head and gut! Talk about audience participation! Thanks again!
