N7868K (c/n 29364, l/n 1823) is a 737-79P, that was formerly with China Eastern Airlines, is ferrying from KMG to PAE (via GUM and HNL). It is destined to join the Southwest Airlines fleet after being re-painted, and the cabin reconfiguration, under lease from AerCap.

It was previously registered as B-5097, and was delivered to China Eastern in December 2005, under lease from ILFC. In 2011, Blended Winglets were installed, and in mid-2012, the green Yunnan peacock feather was added to the livery. In 2014, it was acquired by AerCap, and the lease was transferred. B-5097 was painted into the current China Eastern livery in January 2017, and recently withdrawn from service.
