Boeing Customer Code 20

Fri Feb 03, 2017 9:31 am

How many aircraft were delivered with this customer code? What types of aircraft were they?

IIRC customer code 20 was (is?) skipped because the original 707 model was 707-120, hence the customer code for 7x7 series started with 21 (PA)

Was the original 727 a 727-20?

20 is Boeing's customer code for themselves.

The first 727 is a 727-22, built for and eventually delivered to UA.

So were the -20 planes for in-house use? I have never seen a plane with the -20 customer code.

Ha. So I guess the 77A I flew earlier would be a 777-220. Technically, ;)

You mean B-HNL? I'm not sure if the designation changed during the history of the aircraft. Wasn't the original plan to deliver it to CX? Planespotters shows it as being a "-200" before it became a "-267".
