I thought I’d start a new thread regarding the airlines’ buying/selling/retiring their fleets.
What do they have on order?
What & when do they plan on retiring certain planes or types?
Where are they getting their a/c from, if not new from the factory?
Who actually owns the a/c and who are they leasing to? etc etc etc.
I thought of this earlier today when I saw Sun Country fly in from KMSP with an ex-Aloha 737-700. Aloha’s livery still on it for the most part, but it now says Sun Country, of course. I was wondering when they started getting those planes. And who else might be getting them? As well as Skybus’s old planes? etc etc…
HERE’S A PIC of the plane I saw today. Forgive me if it isn’t all that great, as it was taken from a pretty fair distance.
