The first order for Boeing today, a commitment for 75 737 MAX-8s and 25 737-800s by GECAS. It's not a firm order yet, but still a good day for both Boeing and Gecas.

Quote:
Boeing, GECAS Announce Commitment for 100 737s

FARNBOROUGH, United Kingdom, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced today at the Farnborough International Airshow a commitment by GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric (NYSE: GE), to purchase 75 737 MAX 8s and 25 Next-Generation 737-800s. The commitment builds on the momentum for the 737 MAX.

Boeing looks forward to working with GECAS to finalize the details of the agreement, at which time the airplanes will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website as a firm order.

"GECAS is a leader in the airplane leasing and financing industry with a successful track record of placing 737 with airlines worldwide," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. "The GECAS leadership team understands the importance of having advanced, fuel-efficient airplanes to meet their customers' needs. This commitment confirms the value of the 737 MAX in today's competitive marketplace."

The 737 MAX is a new-engine variant of the world's best-selling airplane and builds on the strengths of today's Next-Generation 737. The 737 MAX incorporates the latest-technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in single-aisle aircraft.

"The 737 MAX is a perfect complement to our airplane portfolio," said Norman C.T. Liu, President and CEO of GECAS. "These new Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX airplanes will continue our long-standing strategy of providing our customers the most fuel efficient, most capable airplanes with the lowest operating costs."

Airlines operating the 737 MAX will see a 13 percent fuel burn improvement over today's most fuel efficient single-aisle airplanes and an eight percent operating cost per seat advantage over tomorrow's competition.

To date, the 737 MAX has orders and commitments for more than 1,000 airplanes and the Next-Generation 737 family has won orders for more than 6,600 airplanes.

Boeing, Avolon Announce Commitment for 737 MAXs and Next-Generation 737s

FARNBOROUGH, United Kingdom, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced today at the Farnborough International Airshow a commitment by Avolon to purchase 10 737 MAX 8s and 5 737 MAX 9s, as well as 10 Next-Generation 737-800s. The commitment has a list-price value of $2.3 billion and also includes reconfirmation rights for 5 more 737 MAX airplanes.

Boeing looks forward to working with the Dublin-based lessor to finalize the details of the agreement, at which time the airplanes will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website as a firm order.

"Boeing has shared a partnership with Avolon from the beginning," said Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Avolon has a significant and strategic role to play in the aviation finance industry and we welcome them as one of the launch lessors of the 737 MAX. With rising fuel costs, the 737-800 and 737 MAX enable Avolon to offer their customers unsurpassed fuel efficiency today and well into the future."

The 737 MAX is a new-engine variant of the world's best-selling airplane and builds on the strengths of today's Next-Generation 737. The 737 MAX incorporates the latest-technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market. Airlines operating the 737 MAX will see a 13 percent fuel burn improvement over today's most fuel efficient single-aisle airplanes and an 8 percent operating cost per seat advantage over tomorrow's competition.

"Today's announcement once again reflects both the scale of our ambition and the strength of our financial backing," said Domhnal Slattery, CEO of Avolon. "It also reflects our commitment to our customers as we enhance our fleet, grow our business and continue to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns for our shareholders."

Once this commitment is finalized, Avolon's backlog will grow to 36 737s.

Aeromexico and Boeing have announced a commitment for 90x 737 MAX and 10x 787. It comes just a couple of weeks after the Farnborough air show where it was expected to be announced.

Quote:
Boeing, Aeromexico Announce Commitment for 100 Airplanes

MEXICO CITY, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced today a commitment by Aeromexico to purchase up to 100 single- and twin-aisle airplanes – a combination of 737 MAXs and 787 Dreamliners – in an agreement that will fuel the airline's expansion.

The commitment by Mexico’s largest airline includes up to 90 737 MAX 8s and 9s and ten 787s, worth $10.8 billion at average list price when all aircraft are firmed. Boeing looks forward to working with Aeroméxico to finalize the details, at which time the airplanes will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website as a firm order.

"This order represents the largest investment program for a domestic airline in Mexican commercial aviation history and a major step forward in consolidating Grupo Aeromexico's international leadership position," said Grupo Aeromexico Chief Executive Officer Andres Conesa. "We are announcing our medium and long-term fleet plan supported by our partners, Boeing and General Electric that will allow us to maintain a flexible structure to grow according to market conditions."

"Aeromexico has earned its place as Mexico's leading airline with a commitment to performance. We are pleased to build on our 50-year partnership with Aeromexico and provide the most fuel-efficient fleet in Mexico," said Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 737 MAX and the 787 Dreamliner provide unmatched passenger comfort and fuel efficiency allowing Aeromexico to expand their fleet, open new routes and serve new long-range markets – continuing their legacy of airline leadership."

The 737 MAX builds on the strengths of the best-selling Next-Generation 737 with big advances in fuel-efficiency and environmental performance. Equipped with new LEAP-1B engines from CFM International and improvements such as the Advanced Technology winglet, the 737 MAX reduces fuel burn and CO2 emissions by 13 percent and maintains the 8 percent operating cost advantage over future competition. The 737 features the new Boeing Sky Interior. The sleek interior boasts modern lines, a spacious cabin with more headroom and LED lighting that offers vibrant color options.

Made primarily from composite materials, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the first mid-size airplane capable of flying long-range routes and will allow Aeromexico to replace older aircraft on their European, Asian and South American routes. As a result of innovative technologies, the airplane offers unparalleled operating economics, fuel efficiency and passenger comfort. More than 850 787s are on order by 58 customers, a testament to the airplane's unique capabilities.

Aeroméxico operates an all-Boeing fleet for airplanes larger than 100 seats. Grupo Aeroméxico, the parent company of Aeroméxico, operates its main hub out of the Mexico City International Airport. In 2011 the Group transported more than 14 million passengers and offers more than 550 daily flights to different cities in Mexico, the United States, Canada, Central and South America, as well as Europe and Asia.

New commitment for the 737 MAX.

The regional low cost owned by Singapore Airlines will be ordering the 737 MAX as well as the 737NG.
Quote:
SILKAIR TO ORDER UP TO 68 NEW BOEING AIRCRAFT

Press Release

3 August 2012

SILKAIR TO ORDER UP TO 68 NEW BOEING AIRCRAFT

SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, has signed a letter of intent to purchase up to 68 new aircraft from Boeing.

The order is the largest in SilkAir's history and remains subject to the negotiation of a final purchase agreement.

It will comprise firm orders for 54 aircraft and purchase rights for another 14. Firm orders will comprise 23 Boeing 737-800s and 31 Boeing 737 MAX 8s. SilkAir will have the flexibility to switch to other variants within the B737 product range.

The firm-ordered aircraft are valued at US$4.9 billion based on current Boeing list prices. Deliveries are due to begin in 2014 and continue to 2021, by which time the Airline's fleet will have more than doubled in size.

SilkAir currently operates 21 A319s and A320s, with three more A320s due for delivery by the end of 2013. The new aircraft will cater for both growth and fleet renewal.

SilkAir Chief Executive Marvin Tan said the size of the order reflects the Airline's confidence in the Asia-Pacific air travel market, helping the carrier maintain annual double-digit percentage growth rates through the end of this decade and beyond.

"We continue to see very strong growth within the region and these new aircraft will position SilkAir well. They will enable us to spread our wings to even more destinations and increase capacity on existing routes, contributing to the overall SIA Group network," said Mr Tan.

"The selection of the B737 follows detailed evaluations and extensive negotiations with both Airbus and Boeing. The order will enable us to maintain a young and modern fleet, with an aircraft that has a proven track record of strong customer appeal, excellent reliability and low operating costs."

The B737-800 is the best-selling variant in Boeing's popular Next Generation family of single-aisle aircraft. The B737 MAX is currently in development and will be the latest generation of the product line.
http://www.silkair.com/mbe/en_UK/con...1_03082012.jsp
Commitments:
23x 737-800
31x 737 MAX 8
+ 14 options for an undisclosed version.

This is the 1st upset for Airbus in the NEO vs. MAX battle, since SilkAir currently only operates Airbus planes. But who knows, we might also see an order for the NEO. But even then it's still the first all Airbus operator to order the MAX.


Yesterday Boeing also finalized an order for 2 737-900ER planes for EL AL.
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=2373

And on the order sheet an order for 2 777s for an undisclosed customer was added to the 2012 list.
http://active.boeing.com/commercial/orders/index.cfm


edit

Another order for the 737, this time by China Southern for Xiamen Airlines. No details if it's a firm order or a commitment and also no details on which type they will be buying. It will probably be up for approval by the Chinese government before it will be finalized.

Quote:
Xiamen Airlines To Buy 40 Boeing 737s

China Southern Airlines said on Friday that its subsidiary Xiamen Airlines has agreed to buy 40 Boeing 737s as it expands internationally.

The bill for the jets, which will be delivered from 2016 to 2019.

Do you guys remember Boeing Sonic Cruiser?

Apparently in April this year Boeing has filed an application for a patent for an aircraft configuration similar to that of the Sonic Cruiser

Some interesting drawings from the source above, much more in a link:

Boeing advises pilots to head for Asia

Quote:
PARIS—Asian airlines that are now recruiting pilots abroad will need more than 180,000 over the next two decades, according to a study released on Tuesday by the US aircraft manufacturer Boeing.

The group’s 2012 Pilot and Technician Outlook said that the Asia/Pacific region will require “185,600 new pilots and 243,500 new technicians” and that for China alone the figures were 71,300 and 99,400 respectively.

Fast-growing airlines in Asia and the Middle East have begun to look for trained pilots in Europe and the Americas, as many established carriers there seek to downsize, in part owing to high personnel costs.

According to WASINC International, which organized the events, starting wages for a three-year contract in China were as much as $200,000 per year, compared with $180,000 in the US.

Boeing’s statement quoted global sales director Bob Bellitto as saying: “This great need for aviation personnel is a global issue, but it’s hitting the Asia Pacific region particularly hard.

IN FOCUS: Boeing insists ‘illegal’ A350 launch aid still flowing to Airbus

The long-running Airbus versus Boeing transatlantic trade war over government subsidies for airliner development has flared up again, with Boeing proclaiming US compliance with a March 2012 World Trade Organisation ruling to redress "relatively small" subsidy infractions - of $5.3 billion or more, ranging from NASA and defence department research grants to Washington state government tax breaks - while redoubling its insistence that Airbus has continued to "thumb its nose at the WTO".

Speaking for the Airbus side of the dispute - technically a pair of counterclaims before the WTO by the USA and European Union going back to 2004 - EU trade spokesperson John Clancy countered: "We will now immediately review their compliance package to check whether the US have taken the necessary steps to end these subsidies and their adverse effects."

According to Boeing, US government action has addressed subsidies that the WTO in March identified as inconsistent with its rules.

"Unfortunately," Boeing continued, "the same cannot be said of Airbus and its government sponsors, which have thumbed their noses at the WTO. Despite a crystal clear ruling against launch aid subsidies, European governments have continued the practice by providing Airbus with billions of taxpayer euros and pounds for its next new product, the A350. What is more, the European governments have yet to remove the very substantial subsidies, including those propping up the A380, which the WTO's ruling in June of last year requires them to do.

"The illegal subsidies to Airbus, most importantly the pernicious, market distorting practice of launch aid, must stop. The US government remains committed to ending these subsidies, and Boeing fully supports the actions the US government has taken to ending them."

Court action to date has resulted in rulings against both sides and subsequent appeals, with both sides declaring victory at each step of the process.

In its March 2012 ruling the WTO dismissed some of Boeing's appeal against a March 2011 ruling that it could not have launched an aircraft as sophisticated as the 787 for delivery as early as 2008 without subsidies in 1989-2006 that fell foul of WTO rules.

That earlier ruling - initially finding $19.1 billion in illegal subsidies - also found that the resulting quality of the 787 did serious damage to sales of the Airbus A330 and the original A350.

In December 2011, Airbus and the European Union claimed to have put themselves in compliance with the WTO ruling in the US-Boeing case against the EU-Airbus, that some aspects of launch aid from France, Germany, Spain and the UK for the development of some earlier Airbus models should not have been allowed.

However, one lawyer familiar with the cases notes that unless the two sides either walk away from the dispute or press for resolution via a global agreement on airliner subsidies, the dispute is likely to involve several years of compliance arbitration and subsequent appeals.

Brazilian low-cost carrier Gol has placed an order for 60 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft.
Quote:
Boeing, GOL Announce order for 60 737 MAX Airplanes

SAO PAULO, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes announced today GOL's purchase of 60 737 MAX airplanes. GOL plans to use the new super-efficient 737 MAX to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs.

The order is valued at approximately $6 billion at published list prices, making it the largest order in GOL's 12-year history and the largest airplane order from a single airline in South America's aviation history.

"The decision to order Boeing 737 MAX is in line with our commitment to maintain a modern and safe fleet that will allow us to sustain our competitive advantage in the long term," said Paulo Kakinoff, CEO of GOL. "The new airplanes will have one of the best cost-benefit ratios in the market due to its unique operational economy, so it is fully compatible with our low-cost model."

The 737 MAX builds on the strengths of Boeing's best-selling Next-Generation 737 with big advances in fuel-efficiency and environmental performance. Equipped with new LEAP-1B engines from CFM International and improvements such as the Advanced Technology winglet, the 737 MAX reduces fuel burn and CO2 emissions by 13 percent and maintains the 8 percent operating cost advantage over future competition. This order puts the 737 MAX at 724 firm orders to date.

"Boeing has partnered with GOL since their inception just over 12 years ago. We've watched them grow from a small start-up airline to a driving force in global aviation and we are proud to partner with them as the South American launch customer for the 737 MAX," said Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The unmatched operating economics of the 737 MAX make it the absolute best airplane for the world's low-cost carriers and legacy carriers alike. GOL's commitment to the MAX proves this once again."

In just more than 11 years, GOL has established itself as one of the fastest growing low-cost, low-fare airlines in the world. GOL currently offers the most extensive and convenient routes in South America with approximately 810 daily flights to 63 destinations in Brazil and 12 in South America and the Caribbean. Combined with six code-share partnerships and more than 60 interline agreements with foreign companies, GOL's route network is among the best serving customers traveling to, from and within Brazil.

Boeing, GECAS Finalize Order for up to 100 737 MAXs and Next-Generation 737s

SEATTLE, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), the commercial aircraft leasing and financing arm of General Electric (NYSE: GE), finalized a firm order for 85 737s, which includes 75 737 MAX 8s and 10 Next-Generation 737-800s. The order, first announced as a commitment at the Farnborough Airshow in July, allows for up to 15 additional 737-800s.

The order, worth $6 billion at list prices, further illustrates both the strength of the 737 MAX and the continuing strong demand for the Next-Generation 737 in the airplane-leasing industry. To date, 821 737 MAX airplanes have been ordered.

Interestingly they say that the total firm orders to date is 821. In Mondays press release that I posted yesterday it was only 724. That's a difference of 97, but today's order was for just 75 737 MAXs.

If the number in today's press release is correct this should mean that there was another order today for 22 planes. Maybe there will be a 2nd press release later today or else we know tomorrow when the order list is updated what this is all about. It could be a undisclosed costumer, that obviously doesn't get a press release.

What a Winglet! by The Boeing Company, on Flickr[/QUOTE]

It's a bit hard to see from the angle of the picture, the description says full scale, and it's an picture from Boeings own channel so it's probably true.

This picture should make it more clear.

In the weekly order update the 22 missing 737 MAX orders that I noted in my previous post in this thread where listed as a new order for an undisclosed costumer.

Apart from the big 737 MAX orders that I already posted there were also orders for 1 737-800 by Turkmenistan Airlines. Plus 3 777s and 3 787-8s, both for undisclosed costumers.

Last week Boeing also added an order by the US Navy for 11 P-8A Poseidon aircraft, a military version of the 737-800 it's also listed as an commercial airplane order.

Boeing received their 1st highly expected MAX order from Alaska Airlines.
Quote:
Boeing, Alaska Airlines Announce Order for 737 MAXs and Next-Generation 737s

SEATTLE, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Alaska Airlines announced today a firm order for 20 737 MAX 8s, 17 737 MAX 9s and 13 Next-Generation 737-900ERs. The order, valued at more than $5 billion at current list prices, is the largest in Alaska Airlines' history.

"This order positions us for growth and ensures that we'll continue to operate the quietest and most fuel-efficient aircraft available for the foreseeable future. That means our customers will continue to enjoy a comfortable in-flight experience, low fares and excellent on-time performance," Alaska Airlines President and CEO Brad Tilden said. "We value our longstanding relationship with Boeing and look forward to painting 'Proudly All Boeing' on the nose of our aircraft for many, many years into the future."

The 737 MAX is a new-engine variant of the world's best-selling airplane and builds on the strengths of today's Next-Generation 737. The 737 MAX incorporates the latest-technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market. Airlines operating the 737 MAX will see a 13 percent fuel-use improvement over today's most fuel-efficient single-aisle airplanes and an 8 percent operating cost per seat advantage over tomorrow's competition.

"The 737 MAX will be a great addition to Alaska Airlines' all-Boeing 737 fleet," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. "It will build on the strong record of operational and financial performance that Alaska Airlines has established with the 737 family. This order demonstrates our hometown airline's strong commitment to operate the most fuel-efficient single-aisle airplanes in the market today and in the future."

Alaska Airlines currently operates 120 Boeing 737s. The new order, plus 25 existing firm delivery positions, gives the carrier the flexibility to manage the size of its fleet to meet air travel demand over the next decade.

The Alaska Airlines order continues the momentum of the 737 MAX in the marketplace. The order brings the total number of 737 MAX orders to date to 858 airplanes.

Alaska Airlines
Alaska Airlines, a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group (NYSE: ALK), together with its partner regional airlines, serves 95 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. Alaska Airlines has ranked "Highest in Customer Satisfaction Among Traditional Network Carriers" in the J.D. Power and Associates North America Airline Satisfaction Study(SM) for five consecutive years from 2008 to 2012. For reservations, visit www.alaskaair.com. For more news and information, visit the Alaska Airlines Newsroom at www.alaskaair.com/newsroom.

Boeing press release:
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=2447
The order in numbers:
20 - 737-8 MAX
17 - 737-9 MAX
13 - 737-900ER

Since Alaska Airlines is an 737 only operator we can expect more orders in the future.

It's actually not a new commitment but an upgrade over a commitment for 737ERs that where never taken up. This was part of a commitment for 85 737s, 50 of those where firmed up and will be leased to Aeroflot. There's a big chance that the 737 MAX will also go to Aeroflot.

Boeing, Russia’s Aviation Capital Services Announce Commitment for 35 737 MAXs

MOSCOW, Oct. 30, 2012 - Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Aviation Capital Services LLC, a subsidiary of the State Corporation Russian Technologies (Rostech), announced today a commitment by Rostech to purchase 35 737 MAX airplanes. It is the first commitment for the 737 MAX from Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

Boeing and Aviation Capital Services will work to finalize the details of the order, valued at more than $3 billion at current list prices. When complete, the order will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website as firm.

“Aviation Capital Services signed a commitment today for 35 737 MAX that will make it the first customer of the 737 MAX aircraft in Eastern Europe. As a result, our partner airline-carriers will receive the most modern aircraft with improved fuel efficiency, flight characteristics and greater comfort for passengers,” said Sergey Chemezov, CEO of Rostech. “Russian airlines will gain an advantage on global markets and will be able to increase their activity both within the country and internationally.”

“We are proud of the confidence that Aviation Capital Services has placed in the 737 MAX, which will deliver unsurpassed fuel efficiency to its customers in the single-aisle market as well as improved environmental performance,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. “This is the first commitment for the 737 MAX from Russia and CIS, which is one of the commercial aviation industry’s fastest-growing regions.”

The 737 MAX is a new-engine variant of the world's best-selling airplane and builds on the strengths of today's Next-Generation 737. The 737 MAX incorporates the latest-technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market. Airlines operating the 737 MAX will see a 13 percent fuel-use improvement over today's most fuel efficient single-aisle airplanes and an 8 percent operating cost per seat advantage over tomorrow's competition. To date, Boeing has received 858 orders for the 737 MAX.

Also in the news.

Boeing launched the BBJ version of the 737 MAX 8 & 9.

Quote:
Boeing Business Jets to Offer the BBJ MAX

RLANDO, Fla., Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced its intent to offer the BBJ MAX 8 and the BBJ MAX 9, furthering Boeing's dominance in the large cabin ultra-long-range business jet market. The announcement was made today at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Conference in Orlando, Fla.

The BBJ MAX 8, based on the 737 MAX 8, will be the first member of the BBJ MAX family to take advantage of the efficiency of CFM International's new LEAP-1B engines and the Boeing developed Advanced Technology winglet. The new engine and Advanced Technology winglet will provide customers with a 13 percent fuel-use improvement. Together, these features will translate to a range of 6,325 nautical miles – a more than 14-percent increase over today's class-leading BBJ 2 that will be validated in final configuration and flight test.

The BBJ MAX 8 will share the same cabin size with today's BBJ 2, offering customers a 19-foot longer cabin and three times the cargo space of today's BBJ. The BBJ MAX 8 will also improve on its market leading range capability and maintain the BBJ advantages of lower cabin altitude, unmatched reliability and outstanding product support around the globe.

"We anticipate the BBJ MAX 8 will be a very strong seller as a VIP aircraft and will likely capture a larger share of the market because it's the right combination of performance, space and comfort," said Captain Steve Taylor, BBJ president. "For VIP customers, extended range and exceptional comfort are equally important. The BBJ MAX will ensure our customers get the best of both."

Boeing also intends to develop the plan for the BBJ MAX 9 based on the 737 MAX 9. Similar performance improvements are anticipated, offering a 6,255 nm range with an even larger cabin than the BBJ MAX 8. Plans for a BBJ MAX 7 are being studied.

ALAFCO firms up their commitment for the MAX that they made at Farnborough.

Quote:
Boeing, ALAFCO Firm up Order for 20 Boeing 737 MAXs

KUWAIT, Nov. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Kuwait airplane leasing company ALAFCO finalized an order for 20 Boeing 737 MAX 8s valued at $2.0 billion at current list price. The order was first announced as a commitment at the Farnborough Airshow in July.

"This is the first order for the 737 MAX from the Middle East, which is one of the aviation industry's highest growth regions," said Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We are proud of the confidence that ALAFCO has placed in the 737 MAX, and hope to continue this partnership well into the future."

The 737 MAX is the new-engine variant of the world's best-selling airplane and builds on the strengths of today's Next-Generation 737. The airplane will be powered by new CFM International LEAP-1B engines. Along with the engines, aerodynamic improvements to the tail and the new Advanced Technology winglet, the 737 MAX will reduce fuel burn and CO2 emissions by 13 percent over today's most fuel-efficient single-aisle airplane, the Next-Generation 737. The 737 MAX will have the lowest operating costs in the single-aisle segment with an 8 percent advantage per seat over tomorrow's competition.

"Today, with rising fuel costs, the 737 MAX will provide operational cost savings to airlines in addition to being more environmentally friendly due to its latest quiet engine technology," stated ALAFCO's chairman and CEO Ahmad Alzabin during the Farnborough Airshow. "These are the advantages that airlines are looking for in the current competitive and demanding environment."

The order brings the total number of 737 MAX orders to date to 878.

And the commitment was firmed today, this time Aeromexico.

The had a commitment for 90 737 MAX 8 and 9s and they now firmed 60 and secured reconfirmation rights for the other 30. It's a bit unclear what reconfirmation rights are, it's more then just a commitment but it's not the usual option since it's more flexible in the way Aeromexico can use it.

The total firm orders for the 737 MAX now stands at 938.

Boeing, Aeromexico Finalize Order for 737 MAX 8s and 9s

SEATTLE, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Aeromexico finalized an order for 60 737 MAX 8s and 9s, with reconfirmation rights for 30 additional 737 MAXs. The firm order by Mexico's largest airline, which was first announced as a commitment in July, is valued at more than $6 billion at published list prices.

Today's order brings the total 737 MAX firm orders to 938 airplanes.

"We are proud of the steps Aeromexico is taking to remain Mexico's leading airline and one of the world's most progressive airlines," said Van Rex Gallard, vice president of Sales for Latin America, Africa, & Caribbean, for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Aeromexico has a history of leading the way for Latin America's aviation industry and this order shows their dedication to continuous improvement in performance, customer satisfaction and efficiency."

The 737 MAX is a new-engine variant of the world's best-selling airplane and builds on the strengths of today's Next-Generation 737. The 737 MAX incorporates the latest-technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market. Airlines operating the 737 MAX will see a 13 percent fuel-use improvement over today's most fuel-efficient single-aisle airplanes and an 8 percent operating cost per seat advantage over tomorrow's competition.

The 737 MAX also features the new Boeing Sky Interior. The sleek interior boasts modern lines, a spacious cabin with more headroom and LED lighting that offers vibrant color options.

Aeromexico operates an all-Boeing fleet for airplanes larger than 100 seats. Grupo Aeromexico, the parent company of Aeromexico, operates its main hub out of the Mexico City International Airport. In 2011 the Group transported more than 14 million passengers and offers more than 550 daily flights to different cities in Mexico, the United States, Canada, Central and South America, as well as Europe and Asia.

SilkAir has firmed up their 737 order.

23x 737-800
31x 737 MAX 8

Boeing, SilkAir Finalize Order for 54 737s

SINGAPORE, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and SilkAir have finalized an order for 54 Next-Generation 737s and 737 MAX 8s worth $4.9 billion at list prices. With this agreement, the 737 MAX has accumulated 969 orders to date.

SilkAir's order for 23 737-800s and 31 737 MAX 8s is the largest order in the airline's history and begins a fleet transition to Boeing airplanes.

"The capability of the 737s will enable us to spread our wings to even more destinations and increase capacity on existing routes," said SilkAir Chief Executive Leslie Thng.

The Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX can fly farther than competing airplanes, enabling airlines to open new routes.

"As air travel in the Asia Pacific region continues to grow, we're proud to support SilkAir as it plans to fly more passengers and serve more cities," said Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president of Asia Pacific and India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Passengers will soon experience not only SilkAir's award-winning service, but the comfort of the 737 Boeing Sky Interior."

Both the Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX feature the Boeing Sky Interior, which highlights new modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals, LED lighting that enhances the sense of spaciousness and larger pivoting overhead stowage bins.

The 737 MAX is a new-engine variant of the world's best-selling airplane and builds on the strengths of today's Next-Generation 737. The 737 MAX incorporates the latest-technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market. Airlines operating the 737 MAX will see a 13 percent fuel-use improvement over today's most fuel-efficient single-aisle airplanes and an 8 percent operating cost per seat advantage over tomorrow's competition.

The SilkAir order brings the net year-to-date total for 737s ordered in 2012 to 1,031 airplanes. This is the first time in the single-aisle jetliner's history that it has logged more than 1,000 orders in a single year. The 737 also broke its own record for net orders this past October when it topped the 2007 record of 846 orders.

SilkAir is a full-service airline and the regional wing of Singapore Airlines. It currently flies to 42 destinations across 12 countries.
