Aerolineas Argentinas recently retired two 737-700's from its fleet; 737-7Q8, LV-CYJ (c/n 30647/1159) which departed Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) on 15Aug17 to Paine Field (PAE) in Everett, Washington via intermediate stops in Punta Cana (PUJ) and Miami (MIA) and 737-7Q8, LV-CYN (c/n 30648/1171), which left Ezeiza on 02Sep17 also to Paine Field via PUJ and MIA.
LV-CYJ has already joined the fleet of Southwest Airlines (as has every other ex-Aerolineas 737-700) as N7865A and LV-CYN is also scheduled to join Southwest in the near future. This leaves Aerolineas with a fleet of nine 737-700's after peaking at 22 of the type in recent years.
