We will update this post several times as news of deals comes from the airshow. This is our Farnborough 2022 Deal Tracker.

Orders Notes:

  • Delta/MAX10 – The deal includes 30 options. Crucially Delta noted: 737-10 is currently awaiting final certification from (FAA), which is expected in 2023. In the event of a delay, the agreement has adequate protection in place, including allowing Delta to shift to another model of MAX family” if needed.

Deals:
