On the occasion that a delivery flight stops through the Kalaeloa Airport [JRF], a Neighbor Island airport, or Anchorage, AK [ANC], their IATA airport code will noted after the flight number. Delivery flights that go through ANC, or any non-Hawai‘i airport, will only be listed here, and not be listed on the "Deliveries" pages.

Also, China has yet to fully re-certify the the 737MAX to be put back into service, and deliveries to resume. With that, Boeing will re-market some of the 737s awaiting delivery, and even those on order. If an airframe is sold to another airline, that listing will be removed.

Some of the deliveries bound for China will begin ferrying to the 737 Completion and Delivery Center, in Zhoushan, China, will have this
» symbol following the flight number, which may be a Boeing flight number assigned to the particular airframe.
