Lucky Air's B-5248

Leading off today's HNL RareBirds 737 trifecta is Lucky Air's 737-790, B-5248 (c/n 30626). According to Je89_w's post on the HNL RareBirds Vol11 thread in the Airliners.net Civil Aviation forum, this 73G was parked on the south ramp. Lucky Air is part of the Hainan Air Group, but is changing to it's own livery (see link below).

B-5248 was previously with Alaska Airlines as N629AS, and is leased from CIT Aerospace.

Sorry, no HNL photo available ...

I'm the dispatcher for both B-5248/49. The plane that flew into HNL yesterday was B-5249, MSN 33011. B-5248 flew into HNL last month (3/28/07), their MSN is 30626. Nice livery.

Mahalo for the clarification.

B-5249 (c/n 33011) was formerly with Alaska Airlines as well. It held the registration N645AS. It is owned by CIT Leasing.
