Firefly's 9M-FFF

Firefly (FY/FFM), a subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines, is taking delivery of 9M-FFF (c/n 39320, l/n 3690), a 737-8FZ. It arrived earlier today at HNL from BFI, and was handled by Castle & Cooke Aviation. 9M-FFF is seen above on the 29th, on Taxiway RA, taxiing to Runway 8R, bound for MAJ as FFM5203.

This is the first new build 737-800 for Firefly, and leased from Babcock & Brown Asset Management. The current other five 737-800s are used models (three from its parent Malaysia Airlines, and two leased from GATX). The airline announced last year, that they ordered 30 737-800s to be delivered between 2012 and 2015.

I saw this aircraft parked at C&C; it sure sported a bright color scheme!
