Boeing’s 737 MAX has had a rough time. There have been accidents, groundings, and now FAA production rate restrictions due to “quality escapes.”

However, data shows that the MAX line delivers on Boeing’s promise of excellent fuel burn. The 737 is lighter than its A320 family equivalents, which gives it a critical advantage. Despite being an over half-century-old design, the 737 does yeoman work for operators.
