Alaska Airlines operates 61 B737-800s, each with seating for 159 passengers. The longer B737-800, carrying more passengers and using significantly less fuel, replaced earlier McDonnel-Douglas (Boeing) MD-80 aircraft0. Alaska Airlines aircraft are immediately recognizable by the “Eskimo” logo on the tail—usually appearing in black or blue on the white aircraft. The B737-800 is part of Boeing’s Next Generation program, replacing the B737 Classic series. Our model’s livery uses the familiar black-on-white color scheme. Interesting Fact: Alaska modified several B737 to “combis”—combination freight and passenger (freight in the front, passengers in the back. The “freight” often included livestock. We wonder if the cattle ever complained about being treated like people!
