A lot of you have been wondering about the status of our first 737-800 since it took its initial flight back on February 23. Well, today, we took delivery of our brand new aircraft in Seattle. However, don’t look for it at one of our airports right away because the hard work isn’t done yet, and over the next few weeks, the airplane has a very busy schedule:
The plane will head to Paine Field at Everett for make ready and the installation of the WiFi Hotspot.
Then the -800 is scheduled to make a quick visit in Dallas for an Employee event.
Also in Dallas, the aircraft will go through several standard tests and evaluations performed by the FAA.
Once those tests are complete it will be routed to a Southwest city to begin service.
