Boeing, Japan Transocean Air Announce Selection of 12 Next-Generation 737s

Okinawa-based JAL Group airline to replace 737-400 fleet with Next-Generation 737-800s

SEATTLE, March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE:BA] and Japan Transocean Air (JTA) announced the airline's selection of 12 Next-Generation 737-800 airplanes. The selection, valued at $1.1 billion at list prices, will mark the start of the airline's fleet renewal program with the new airplanes scheduled to enter into service from 2016. As part of the agreement, JTA will have the flexibility to switch to the 737 MAX family of airplanes.

"JTA has been the wings of Okinawa for almost 50 years," said Manabu Sato, president of Japan Transocean Air and executive officer at Japan Airlines. "The Next-Generation 737-800, with its greater reliability, superior economic and environmental performance, and passenger-pleasing Boeing Sky Interior will allow us to continue to provide the highest levels of service, comfort and convenience to the people of Okinawa."

A member of the Japan Airlines Group, JTA is based in Naha, Okinawa, Japan's southernmost island chain. Currently, the airline operates a fleet of 737-400 airplanes on domestic routes linking Okinawa with major Japanese cities as well as other islands within Okinawa.

"We are honored that JTA has chosen to maintain an all-Boeing fleet of Next-Generation 737s," said John Wojick, Senior Vice President, Global Sales & Marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The Next-Generation 737 will provide JTA with market-leading efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort, allowing JTA to continue to grow and prosper and allowing JTA and Boeing to maintain and build on a vital partnership for many years to come."

JTA's new 737-800s will be powered by CFM56-7 engines manufactured by CFM International, a joint venture between General Electric and SNECMA. The airplanes will be fitted with Boeing's latest Performance Improvement Package (PIP), delivering an additional two percent improvement in fuel efficiency for what is already the most fuel efficient single-aisle airplane. The airplanes will also feature the popular passenger-inspired Boeing Sky Interior, with modern sculpted sidewalls and window reveals, LED lighting that enhances the sense of spaciousness and larger pivoting overhead stowage bins.

Boeing, Air Canada Finalize Order for 61 737 MAXs

SEATTLE, April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Air Canada have finalized an order for 61 737 MAX airplanes to lead the airline's single-aisle fleet renewal plan. The order, valued at $6.5 billion at list prices, consists of 33 737 MAX 8s and 28 737 MAX 9s, as well as 18 options and 30 rights to purchase additional 737 MAXs.

"Our narrowbody fleet renewal program with the 737 MAX is expected to yield significant cost savings and is a key element of our ongoing cost transformation program ," said Calin Rovinescu, President and CEO of Air Canada. "Projected fuel and maintenance cost improvements of more than 20 percent per seat will generate an estimated CASM reduction of approximately 10 percent compared to our existing narrowbody fleet. In addition, the 737 MAX offers improvements to the environment, making this the best choice for Air Canada."

The 737 MAX improves fuel efficiency and reduces carbon emissions by 14 percent, while reducing the operational noise footprint by 40 percent, compared to today's aircraft.

"We're honored Air Canada selected Boeing for their single-aisle fleet renewal," said Brad McMullen, vice president of North America Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 737 MAX will deliver big fuel savings to the airline while providing Air Canada's customers with best in class passenger amenities."

The 737 MAX incorporates the latest technology LEAP-1B engines from CFM International with other advancements including Advanced Technology winglets, large flight deck displays and the Boeing Sky Interior to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market.

The 737 MAX has accumulated more than 1,900 orders to date from 37 customers worldwide.

Development of the 737 MAX is on schedule with firm configuration of the airplane completed in July 2013. First flight is scheduled in 2016 with deliveries to customers beginning in third quarter of 2017.

Looks like AC is moving away from Airbus for its narrow-body fleet in favor of Boeing... I wonder what kinds of cabin improvements will that large order bring for the airline, especially that it currently operates multiple A320 types (A319, A320-200, and A321-200) and that it operates those on both domestic, transborder, and select Latin American routes.

Air Canada's livery looks great on the 737MAX. So far we have twenty airlines that have placed direct orders for the MAX. Still have some unidentified customers according to Boeing's website and six leasing companies that placed orders for the MAX.

Last week Boeing booked 1 737 BBJ order, it looks like this was the 1st BBJ MAX order.

Quote:
Boeing Launches BBJ MAX Family with First Order

SEATTLE, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] announced the launch of the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) MAX family of airplanes after receiving the first order from an undisclosed customer. The order is for a BBJ MAX 8, which is based on the 737 MAX 8 and the newest business jet to join the BBJ family.

"We are honored that an existing BBJ customer has become the first to select the BBJ MAX," said Capt. Steve Taylor, president, Boeing Business Jets. "The BBJ MAX provides more room, longer range and emits fewer emissions than its nearest competition, making it an ideal choice for today's BBJ customers."

BBJ is the market leader in the large cabin, ultra-long-range business jet market and the new BBJ MAX will extend that advantage.

With new CFM International LEAP-1B engines and other aerodynamic improvements including Advanced Technology winglets, the 737 MAX will provide a 14 percent fuel-use improvement compared to today's most efficient single-aisle airplanes. The fuel-use improvement is even greater at longer ranges typically flown by BBJ customers.

The BBJ MAX 8 will have a range of 6,325 nautical miles (11,713 km), an increase of more than 800 nautical miles (1,482 km) over the BBJ2. It will share the same cabin size with today's BBJ2, offering customers a 19-foot (5.8 meter) longer cabin and three times the cargo space of today's BBJ, while improving on its market-leading range capability and maintaining the BBJ advantages of lower cabin altitude, unmatched reliability and outstanding product support around the globe. The BBJ continues to be the leading choice for businesses, corporations and private owners.

The new BBJ family also will include the BBJ MAX 9, based on the 737 MAX 9, and is expected to offer a 6,255 nautical mile (11,584 km) range with an even larger cabin than the BBJ MAX 8. Plans for a BBJ MAX 7 are still being studied.

"We expect a large demand for the BBJ MAX, particularly for those BBJ owners who want to fly farther and more efficiently and still maintain the exceptional comfort of a BBJ," Taylor said.

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 commercial airline customers beginning in 2017. The 737 MAX has accumulated more than 1,900 orders to date from 37 customers worldwide

The first BBJ MAX will be delivered in 2018 without an interior, and a completion center of the customer's choosing will install the jet's VIP interior.

Randy Tinseth, vice president, marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes has made a bit too optimistic blog post after the Air Canada order.

Claiming 50% market share against the neo is of course pure sales talk, and is only correct if you do some higher grade mathematics. But never mind, he's a sales guy, all sales guys in aviation tend to bend the truth to their own advantage.

Quote:
Tipping point

The new single-aisle order trend is tipping toward the 737 MAX, which since its first order has claimed more than 50 percent of new single-aisle orders placed versus the neo.

The airplane is proving to be popular not only with current 737 customers, but with new customers as well. Today, Air Canada finalized an order for 61 737 MAXs, bringing total MAX orders to 1,934.

Other customers like Aeromexico, Alaska, Icelandair, United, Lion Air, Turkish, TUI and lessors such as ALC, ACG and Avolon have also invested in the value the MAX 9 can bring to their fleet. To date, 12 customers have placed a total of 281 MAX 9 orders. And we expect this number to continue to grow as customers exercise options and conversion rights and new customers order the airplane.
http://www.boeingblogs.com/randy/arc...o_the_max.html


But there some other interesting points there.

We only know of 1908 firm orders, it's in the 2 press messages from the last 2 days "over 1900" orders. Randy already talks about 1934 orders, we might see another new order on tomorrows weekly order update.

As for the MAX 9, there we only have 212 known orders for 9 customers, Randy has a number of 281 for 12 customers. It was already known that Lion Air's and Aeromexico's were not specified and therefor listed as MAX 8 in all the lists. This means that one of the other existing MAX orders are also for the MAX 9, but it could also be possible that the unknown will also be (partly) for the MAX 9.

We might know more tomorrow...

Boeing booked the 61 737 MAX for Air Canada plus an unidentified order for 25 737 MAX last week. The unidentified order was probably a conversion since there were also cancellations for 28 737s.

SEATTLE, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) today delivered the 8,000th 737 to come off the production line to United Airlines, marking another important milestone for the world's best-selling airplane.

Jet Airways hints at 737 Max order

Jet Airways has hinted at an imminent Boeing 737 Max order, and denied suggestions it has cancelled orders for several 737-800s.

Indian media reports citing unnamed sources claim the carrier has cancelled orders for 16 737-800s from an order placed in 2012.

However, Jet tells Flightglobal this is incorrect and that it has not cancelled its aircraft orders, adding: “The airline has in fact opted for a more fuel-efficient variant.”

Flightglobal’s Ascend Online database shows that Jet still has eight 737-800s on firm order, due for delivery out to 2016. It also holds orders for 10 787-9s.

The Indian carrier has in its fleet 57 737NGs, comprising five-700s, 49 -800s and three -900/900ERs

This from an article on flightglobal.com

Because of the Split Scimitar Winglets we now see some 737-800s coming from the assembly line without out winglets. The Split Scimitar Winglets will be fitted by Aviation Partners after the delivery by Boeing.
