AvGeek Pop Quiz: Do You Know These Airlines?

It has been too long since I have done an AvGeek Pop Quiz. If you are new to these, you are in for a treat! Or in for a lot of frustration. I am going to show you a cropped photo and you have to guess the airline and/or aircraft type. This time I am doing it a bit different. I will show you nine thumbnails below, you make your guesses, and when you are ready, keep scrolling to the bottom of the story and I give you the answers. Then in the comments, let me know how you did (or which ones were the most difficult/easiest)! Here we go:

So, how did you do? I think there were a few tricky ones. How many did you get right? I know some of you are good enough to get all these correct, but if everyone says they got them all right, I might start questioning that. I will admit that I wouldn’t have gotten them.
