I have to say the whole process is really cool. Looking forward to the new PTQ videos with this new process.

These are the "6 more current 777 just sold for 2019" that Muilenburg talked about yesterday.

I can't wait until the 777X is finished production, that'll be one badass plane.

Boeing lands a $5.65 billion 777-300(ER), 737 MAX order from China Southern



MIAMI — Guangzhou-based China Southern Airlines has finalized a deal to purchase eight Boeing 777-300(ER)s and 30 737 MAX 8, worth $5.65 billion.

This deal joins an already-existing order of 12 787-9 Dreamliners, valued at $3.2 billion, which was formalized 12 months ago. Boeing plans to begin delivering these Dreamliners between 2018 and 2020.

The Chinese carrier also signed a purchase agreement with Airbus for 20 A350-900s earlier in April, valued at $6 billion. The airline operates one of the largest Airbus fleets in the world with more than 300 Airbus aircraft in service, comprising the A320 Family, the A330 Family, and five A380s.

Considered Asia’s largest airline by size, China Southern boasts a massive fleet of 546 aircraft. Currently, the airline operates 10 Boeing 777-300(ER) and 180 737-700/800. The new 777s and 737 MAX 8s are expected join the fleet between 2019 and 2020.

Boeing, Singapore Airlines Announce Massive Order For 39 Aircraft



MIAMIPreviously earmarked as an unidentified customer, Singapore Airlines has announced alongside aircraft manufacturing giant Boeing a deal for 20 Boeing 777-9Xs and 19 787-10 aircraft.

The announcement took place at a ceremony at the White House. This order is currently valued at around U.S. $13.8 billion and is said by Boeing that it will “sustain thousands of U.S. suppliers and more than 70,000 direct and indirect U.S. jobs during the delivery period of this contract”.

On top of this order for the 39 aircraft, Singapore has additional purchasing rights for 12 additional aircraft, with it being six of each type.

Goh Choon Phong, Singapore Airlines CEO said that “SIA has been a Boeing customer for many decades and we are pleased to have finalized this major order for widebody aircraft, which will enable us to continue operating a modern and fuel-efficient fleet.”

The airline’s executive, who was at the ceremony alongside President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, also said that “these new aircraft will also provide the SIA Group with new growth opportunities, allowing us to expand our network and offer even more travel options for our customers.”

Boeing’s CEO of Commercial Airplanes Kevin McAllister also commented that “Boeing and Singapore Airlines have been strong partners since the airline’s first operations 70 years ago and we are thrilled to finalize their purchase of 20 777Xs and 19 additional 787-10 Dreamliners. Singapore Airlines’ order is a testament to the market-leading capabilities of Boeing’s widebody airplanes, and we look forward to delivering the very first 787-10 to them next year,” he noted.

This is another significant commitment to the Boeing 777 family, especially from Singapore, who already have over 50 Boeing 777 aircraft.

With a prior order for 30 787-10 aircraft, they will now have 49 on order as well as being the launch customer for the aircraft type which is due to take place between Q118 and Q218.

Singapore’s subsidiaries SilkAir, Scoot, and SIA Cargo also operate the 737MAX8, 737-800, 787-8/9 and 747-400F aircraft as a whole collective, which highlights the significance of the relationship between the SIA Group and Boeing.

The 777-9X will be a great move for Singapore Airlines as they could start to implement more of a low-cost model as the aircraft can carry 400-425 passengers with a range of 7,600 nautical miles which means they could become more of an affordable long-haul carrier.

Is it just me, because I'm not that excited for the 777x. I feel like it's another 747-8i, but for Emirates.

Boeing has already sold 326 777x's

Compare that to a total of only 47 sold 747-8i's. Nearly 7 times as many.

Even if you include the 787-8f's (135), that's nearly 2.5 times as many.

Its also just a bit more than A380's total that Airbus has sold (317).

I'd say that's pretty good. Yes, Emirates has ordered a good chunk of those 326, but that's all before the first plane has even been assembled, let alone taken to the sky. The American airlines are coming up soon for replacing their first 777's, and a number of rumored sales to Chinese airlines are coming up soon as well.
