A full press release will be out by the end of the week. Sadly we can't give an exact launch date for this project due problems with the paints. I am not prepared to release the project until everything is set in place...if anyone knows how to paint let me know  :P :o ;D

If you are planning to get normal 737 for Metro Air, better get 737-800SFP (SFP stands for short field performance) which allows you to operate from airports with shorter runways!!! Gol airline and Alaska airline have those.

Can't help with the paint job, but will be very excited to see the 737 return to the mainline schedule.      :)

Hmm, interested to see how this turns out.  You would think there would be considerable cost savings in having a single narrow body aircraft type.

If they get normal 737s with split scimitar winglets,  they will save 5.5 percent in fuel costs per year.
