Refurbished 737-700 N619AS

Question: I read in another thread that AS has refurbished 737-700 N619AS with new First/Economy Class seating, lighting and bulkheads. The post had minimal photos (at best). Does anyone have more photos OR even flown on the refurbished aircraft? Thank you in advance ... ASMan

According to the Weebly site, two other birds have been completed. The Timbers bird was apparently supposed to fly back today but didn't.

Here’s a couple I recently found online! Here’s a couple I recently found online! Unclear from the pictures whether the ceiling lights can also be turned blue, or if it's just the sidewall lighting. Overall, a nice refresh that definitely helps make these aging airplanes look more modern. I'm excited to see the new interior on the MAX and NEO in the months ahead

Shame we've lost the colorful patterned carpet on the bulkheads. I always thought that added a warm touch to the cabin.

That said, I'll be logging my 1,999th flight aboard a 737 tomorrow aboard a 737-700.

I'll send along an update if it is refurbished.

Doesn’t quite look like “Alaska” without the pattern, but looks nice! Can’t wait to have a headrest that stays raised.

Any chance your 2000th is close to Boston?

One more I didn't post. The only pocket that may fit something.

Like a bergillion crumbs and some pocket lint? Or is AS trying to collect misplaced pocket change and other forgotten personal items to sell on the open market (to pad the Saver fare revenue)?

Thanks for the great photos! Ship 622 is the -700 I'm on tomorrow.

My 2000th 737 flight will also be tomorrow between Anchorage and Seattle.

I've been asked if I've ever alerted Alaska to this and the answer is no. I can't imagine why they would even care. More likely their response would be something along the lines of "That's nice" (Whispered aside - "Try to keep him calm!") My two millionth mile on a 737 will be coming up early next year. At present I stand at 1,967,180 miles.

Back on topic, I should imagine we'll start a wiki-type list with the newly reconfigured aircraft. I look forward to adding to it.

So does the F seat have an actual legrest or not? I see the fold down footrest on the seat in front. On slide 7 of the 2018 3Q Investor Presentation, they show a passenger comfortably reclining with their legs supported.

Thank you ALL for the photos, I can't get a clear picture if they have the leg rest (besides the fold down footrest) as shown before. Thank you for the link sltyamusd. All my internet searches only show photos we've all seen before. Please, keep the photos coming! .raying AS actually kept to their word and the seats have leg rests:.

It's hard to tell from the pictures, but do Y seats still have 110 V power? Only the USB port is visible.

I'd appreciate a report if the F overhead bins have been extended so that bags will fit lengthwise. I've not been in a 73G in at least a couple of years, but Rows 1 and 2 were particularly troublesome in the overhead department.

I should imagine they do as Alaska would be at a competitive disadvantage in today's environment if they didn't.

Kinda like hotels offering budget rooms without sheets...
