Danisk Operator Maersk Air has introduced a Boeing 737-500 SP (5L9)
s/n 28023, reg. OY-APA.

The only difference from the non SP should be the lower max to.
weight,- on this it is 112.300 lbs (50938 kg).

Maersk has ordered 6 of this SP, for replacement of their Fokker 50 on
the routes from Billund in Denmark to London, Paris, Frankfurt and

Has anyone any further details on these planes,- are there other
differences than MTOW, and are other Airliners using this special edition
of the 737-500?
