NOTES
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.

Due to the China Corona Virus, and the production backlog due to the 737MAX grounding, some may deliver from sites other than BFI, and will be noted in the flight number information. 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.

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.
