Fall 2017 they're done. Genie is done in June, and tink right after that.

Not sure if there is a way to track though.

What about 737-700? I know three are being converted to freighters. Are the remaining 11 sticking around for a while? If so, will AS install power on them?

I have mixed feelings in that I prefer the non slimline Y seats, but would really like to have power fleet-wide...

I think the 73G is currently being reevaluated.

Did AS do any sort of special sendoff for the 732 (or 732C) when they retired the last of those? Wondering if there will be anything for the 734...

do the 734 combi fly from either PDX or SEA up to AK? i'd love to hop on one of those before they are done.

i did fly the 400 from PDX-ANC back in april and that was a blast from the past walking on that guy!

Sad! I'll miss the 734s, still the best Y seats in the fleet...

Yes, the combi flies SEA-JNU. I wrote a report on a trip last year here. I also flew it again a few weeks ago, it's a absolute must-do experience for any aviation fan.

They did a fun Denali tour with company employees on board. This was the 732 combi.

I was on the last MD80 turn which was SEA-SMF-SEA, and would love to be on the last 734 flight. On the M80 we got a water salute and several announcements by the cabin crew.
