Boeing is having an excellent December.
On Monday Boeing announced an agreement with China Postal Airlines for 10 737NGs as Boeing Converted Freighters, pending program launch.
Yesterday Delta announced it will acquire 20 737-900ERs. The airline will also take 20 Embraer 190s (these likely ex- Air Canada) from Boeing.
Today Boeing announced China Southern Airlines has a commitment to purchase 80 737s. The commitment includes a combination of 30 737NGs and 50 737 MAXs, valued at $8.38bn at list prices.
Today Boeing also announced Jet2.com finalized an order three 737-800s, valued at $288m at list prices.
The month isn’t over and that stocking already looks too small.
Amazing aircraft that 737,50 years old and the design must have been a good one to last this long.
The next iteration, the MAX will enter service in a couple of years, and sell for another 15 years or so. The oldest examples of most models stay in service for another 30 years, so the 737 will probably have a total lifetime of close to 100 years!
Good point. That is pretty amazing.
