- A 737-200 carries about 120-130 passengers, depending on configuration.
The maximum number of passengers seen leaving a Janet jet is 126 (not
including flight crew).
- Southwest Airlines packs 137 passengers in their 737s by removing
galleys, so this might be upper limit for Janet 737s.
- Observed flight crew consists of pilot, copilot and a single
- Federal law requires 1 flight attendant per 50 passengers, which
Janet flights do not maintain. (I usually see only one flight attendant.)

An anonymous correspondent, "A Contractor for STS Services", writes
EG&G is STILL flying folks into and out of Area 51 and related
areas. A certain repair station in
OKC does heavy maintenance checks for EG&G's 737s--in fact, one
of their aircraft is nearing completion
of a "C" check--it's outside the hangar at this time preparing for
a post-maintenance test flight.
Checking the tail numbers (the "N" number on the tails of their aircraft)
against the FAA's aircraft
registration database (accessible through
www.landings.com) shows that all
the aircraft operated
by EG&G are owned by the Department of the Air Force. Tail numbers
for their aircraft are:
N4529W--the one in OKC, a 737-275, s/n 20785
It's interesting to note that all but one of their aircraft are converted
Air Force T-43s.
I can't say for the rest, as I haven't seen them, but for the one
in OKC, there is nothing
out of the ordinary about the aircraft. The interior is somewhat similar
to Southwest Airlines,
in that the forward galley has been removed to make room for more
seats. Also the forward
lavatory has been removed and turned into a closet. As far as systems
and avionics N4529W is
just like any other 737-200. No weird antennas, or strange attach
fittings, or places to mount pylons
or anything else--just a plain-Jane 737. Ugly interior, though--reddish-orange
and navy blue.
N5175U, a 737-T43, s/n 20689
N5176Y, a 737-T43, s/n 20692
N5177C, a 737-T43, s/n 20693
N5294E, a 737-T43, s/n 20691
N5294M, a 737-T43, s/n 20694
Additionally, Air South, a smaller start-up airline on the East Coast,
operates 2 former EG&G
airplanes--N4510W and N4515W.
