Aviation Partners has secured a large order from one of the large 737 operator in the US for a retrofit program to install the new "Split Scimitar Winglet" on 111 737 NGs.

Alaska Airlines Retrofitting 737 Fleet With New, Split Winglet

Lower carbon emissions will equate to nearly 12,000 fewer cars on the road annually
10/28/2013 4:58 a.m.


SEATTLE — Alaska Airlines jetliners will soon fly more efficiently thanks to a new performance-enhancing winglet the carrier is installing on its Boeing Next Generation 737s, which will reduce fuel consumption by 58,000 gallons a year per aircraft. The split winglet will save the airline $20 million and cut carbon dioxide emissions by 57,000 tons annually, which is the equivalent of taking about 11,900 passenger vehicles off the road each year.*

"Reducing fuel consumption has been a top priority at Alaska Airlines for years," said Mark Eliasen, Alaska Airlines' vice president of finance and treasurer. "Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our employees, we've cut our carbon emissions by 30 percent per passenger mile since 2004. Investing in split winglets will further reduce our fuel use and continue our efforts to be the industry leader in environmental stewardship."

Designed by Seattle-based Aviation Partners Boeing, the first winglet will be installed early next year and the project will be completed by 2017. Alaska plans to install the winglets on 111 aircraft, including most of its 737-800s, -900s and all of its -900ERs. Installation will be scheduled on each aircraft during routine maintenance inspections.

Other airlines that will fit their 737NGs with these winglets, which are not the same as the Boeing winglets on the 737 MAX are United, Sunwing Airlines and the TUI Travel airlines in Europe.

Boeing to build 47 737s per month in 2017

Boeing will boost 737 production to 47 aircraft per month in 2017, the latest build-rate increase the manufacturer has announced on its narrowbody line.

Boeing began producing 38 737NGs per month early this year and the rate is expected to rise to 42 per month in the first half of next year. By 2017, when the company is scheduled to deliver its first re-engined 737 MAX aircraft, the 737 program “will build more than 560 airplanes per year and will have increased output by nearly 50% since 2010,” the manufacturer said.

Boeing VP and GM-737 program Beverly Wyse said, “Our employees and our suppliers have successfully increased the production rate to unmatched levels over the last three years. This increase will lay a solid foundation as we bridge into production on the 737 MAX.”

Boeing currently has more than 3,400 unfilled orders across the 737 family, including more than 1,600 orders for the 737 MAX.

It looks like Boeing booked another conversion from the NG to the MAX.

On last weeks order sheet they booked 26 new orders and at the same time 26 cancellations, both for an Unidentified Customer.
http://active.boeing.com/commercial/orders/index.cfm

The monthly update of the order book should happen any time now, then we know the new MAX order total. Up to September it was 1.567.

Flightglobal has an article regarding Copa, maybe this could be the unidentified customer.

The monthly numbers are out:
http://active.boeing.com/commercial/...&pageid=m15527

The order from 23-Oct-2013 for 42 737s was indeed the MAX, this brought the total to 1.609. With last weeks conversion the total should now be 1.635. Out of those 265 are for undisclosed airlines. Although the latest more concrete rumor is that 20 of those are a conversion from the NG for Southwest Airlines.


Copa might indeed be behind one of the others, we'll know in due time.

Copa would be a nice addition to the 737MAX family. No point in spending money to train the pilots to fly NEOs. That would be helpful for expansion and fleet replacement if needed. Is the 265 planes including the rumor of 200 planes from China carriers? The Dubai airshow is opening up in ten days! Let the money start to flow to Boeing. I got a feeling that the Dubai airshow will be a hit for Boeing.

The 265 are the firm orders from unidentified customers on the Boeing orderbook, they are 9 different orders ranging from 4 to 61 737s and we don't know which companies are behind these orders. There could be Chinese airlines among these 9 orders but that's very unlikely. Those rumors are only recent and it usually takes a bit more time before they appear on the Boeing order book.

May i present you all the arrival of PK-LOF with (in my opinion) the most amateuristic and ugliest 100th airplane livery ever, exclusively for SSC and IF!

I hope they are behind some of the 200 737MAX order that China is supposedly going to order. Plus we are going to see the 787 join there fleet too!

Boeing secures firm orders for Max in China

Boeing has secured firm orders for its 737 Max from multiple Chinese airlines, and says that announcements for aircraft "in the hundreds" will soon be made.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines' assembly of presidents in Hong Kong, the airframer's senior vice-president of sales and marketing for northeast Asia Ihssane Mounir says that a number of Chinese customers will also be part of the launch group for the re-engined narrowbody.

"You will see existing 737 operators topping up with the Max and those which have never flown commercial airplanes before start out with Max. You may even hear about flips from those who used to fly [Airbus] A320s to start flying Max," he adds.

Declining to disclose the number of firm commitments, Mounir adds that though Chinese carriers order their aircraft in five-year cycles, the airlines in constant discussion with Boeing over their fleet plans.

"I understand fully what it is they require every year. We're prudent business people and we'll do what we have to do," he adds.

Presently, Chinese carriers only have a small number of narrowbodies on order for delivery through 2018, so their requirements for the 2016-2018 period "have not been filled entirely" he says.

Boeing has so far been tight-lipped about the sale of the Max in China. It forecasts that China will take delivery of over 2,700 narrowbody aircraft over the next 20 years.

Airbus, meanwhile, has said that it has secured firm commitments for at least 100 A320neos from Chinese customers and that discussions for several hundreds more are ongoing.



Could this be announced at the Dubai airshow? Man if this happened Boeing is going to be going home a lot richer than they did. This airshow is going to be all major Boeing announcements. With the exceptions of Airbus and other manufacturers too.

flydubai has gone MAX.

Boeing, flydubai Announce Historic Single-Aisle Agreement

- Commitment includes up to 100 737 MAXs, 11 Next-Generation 737-800s
- Largest ever Boeing single-aisle airplane purchase in Middle East
- Airline continues expansion with all-Boeing fleet

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and flydubai today announced a commitment for up to 100 737 MAX 8 airplanes and 11 Next-Generation 737-800s on the opening day of the Dubai Airshow.

The commitment from the airline of the emirate of Dubai, valued at $11.4 billion at list prices (including orders and purchase rights), is the largest ever Boeing single-aisle airplane purchase in the Middle East. The investment continues flydubai's legacy operating an all-Boeing 737 fleet.

"flydubai is pleased to continue its partnership with Boeing. We believe that the commitment for up to 111 Boeing 737 aircraft will give flydubai one of the best performing aircraft available in the single-aisle market," said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of flydubai. "This will ensure that flydubai is well positioned to continue to set new standards in aviation and support the further economic development of the United Arab Emirates."

"We are extremely proud of the confidence that flydubai continues to place in our products operating an all-Boeing fleet," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. "We look forward to continue strengthening our partnership and seeing the Next-Generation 737-800 and subsequently the 737 MAX play a central role in flydubai's rapid expansion plans."

The 737 MAX will build on the Next-Generation 737's popularity and reliability while delivering customers unsurpassed fuel efficiency in the single-aisle market. The 737 MAX 8 is expected to be 8 percent per-seat more fuel efficient than the future competition.

Development of the 737 MAX is on schedule with firm configuration of the airplane achieved in July 2013. First flight is scheduled in 2016 with deliveries to customers beginning in 2017. Already a market success, the 737 MAX has accumulated more than 1,600 orders to date.

flydubai placed its first order for 50 Next-Generation 737-800s in 2008. The airline took delivery of its first airplane in 2009 and was the first airline in the world to debut the Boeing Sky Interior, an enhanced onboard experience. To date, flydubai has taken delivery of 33 Next-Generation 737-800s.

In the past two years, flydubai has more than doubled the number of destinations it flies to and has around 1,200 weekly flights. flydubai carried 5.1 million passengers in 2012 and has become the second largest carrier, by passenger numbers, operating out of Dubai International.

We only know when it's firmed up how many of the up to 100 are firm straight away. But it's a good boost for Boeing as this order was rumored for a long time to go to Airbus instead. And we can also stripe FlyDubai from the list of airlines that could be behind 1 of the current unidentified orders, this one has not been booked yet.

Still great to hear this news but there is still time to go to Airbus. But who cares. This is a great booster for sure to the program and for Boeing.

Xiamen Airlines’ rapid fleet expansion plan on track

Xiamen Airlines, which is in the midst of a rapid fleet expansion, introduced its 100th aircraft last weekend—a Boeing 737-800.

The Xiamen-based carrier operates a fleet of 100 aircraft, comprising 17 737-700s, 77 -800s and six 757-200s with an average aircraft age of 5.08 years. It is expected to take delivery of 30 737-800s and six 787s over the next two years.

In August 2012, Xiamen committed to buy 40 737-800 NGs and signed a letter of intent with Boeing for 30 737 MAX aircraft. It plans to expand its fleet to more than 200 aircraft by 2020.

The China Southern Airlines subsidiary—one of the most profitable carriers in China—has maintained a consecutive profit for 27 years. It has reported a total profit of CNY6 billion ($98 million) since 2011. The carrier posted a net profit of CNY2.5 billion in 2011 and earned a net income of CNY2 billion in 2012.

So they must be behind one of the unclosed customers that Boeing has gotten.
