They are converting 6 737NGs into MAXs. Congrats to Boeing and Oman on the order.

We'll only know in 2 weeks if it's conversion, when Boeing updates it's monthly updated orders list. All we know now is that they only got 1 737-800 left directly on order with Boeing. If it's a conversion it could come from an unidentified order for them. But it's not that certain they had one unless it's a cancellation of a unidentified order.

ps.
Oman Air already announced a month ago that they will also be leasing 7 737-8s from ALC.
http://airleasecorp.com/2015/09/08/o...se-agreements/

The deal also included 3 new 737-800s and 3 other used 737NGs + 1 787-9.

Stupid Boeing. They built many wonderful, modern cockpit in 787, 777 and to some extent 747 but they choose to keep the very old and outdated concept way before ergonomic word was created just to satisfy dinosaur like Southwest who prefers cockpit commonality. What a lost opportunity to increase safety by incorporating newer technology like simplification of checklist and redundancies of old paper-based cockpit.

What a shame.

I flown 747, the classics and now the NG, and i am very disappointed with this development.

If they are afraid of Southwest threat to change to competitor product, they might as well know the fact it will cost Southwest more to train pilots to new type rather than transitioning to newer MAX version (which should follow 787 and 777x commonality).

Wheel well lights are also all LED now. Start switches are lighter to push and rotate.

On a closer look, few things from the actual picture does not resemble visualisation. Start lever on the max is now toggle switch a-la 777 and newer Boeings. Landing gear lever seems to have two position only (UP and DOWN). Current NG is UP, OFF and DOWN.

Checklists on control column looks shorter.

There might be some space left for electronic checklist considering how wide the ND and MFD is.

CTT Systems receives zonal drying system order for two Boeing 737-800

Sweden-based aircraft humidity control solution provider CTT Systems has announced that it received a zonal drying system order for two Boeing 737-800 aircraft.CTT Systems provides anti-condensation systems for commercial aircraft and humidification products for cockpit, crew rest and cabin areas.

Boeing will install the zonal drying anti-condensation system to reduce costs during operations generated by excess weight from condensate water accumulation.

SO!

Boeing 737-800 aircraft suffer from excess condensation problems in the cockpit where the important electical controls systems are...is it?

"Excess Weight" my ass.

Southwest is picking up a lot of used 737-700s lately.


They just took 5 that came from Transaero, Southwest is leasing them through Aercap.
http://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/ne...aero-b737-700s


It's interesting since the last direct delivery from Boeing of this specific subtype took place in December 2011, but since then they picked up almost 100 used 737-700s instead. While still having 25 outstanding orders left, which probably will never be delivered. Either they will be converted into the -800s or into the MAX.

This strong interest from Southwest for the 737-700 could be 1 of the reasons why it's interesting for airlines operating this type to retire them early. Which also happens in a pretty fast pace right now, as airlines are replacing them with larger more fuel efficient types.

Korean Air firmed up their MAX order.

Quote:
Boeing, Korean Air Finalize Order for 30 737 MAXs, Two 777-300ERs

Deal can reach up to 52 Boeing airplanes if options are exercised

SEATTLE, Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Korean Air today finalized the airline's order of 30 737 MAXs and two additional 777-300ER (Extended Range) jetliners valued at nearly $4 billion at current list prices. The airline also has options for additional 737 MAXs as part of the order, which was previously announced as a commitment during the Paris Air Show in June.

With this order for up to 52 Boeing airplanes, Korean Air becomes Boeing's newest 737 MAX customer and now has 62 firm Boeing airplane orders on backlog.

With broad market acceptance, the 737 MAX has 2,929 orders from 60 customers worldwide.

Russian 737 operators could be in big trouble.

Quote:
Interstate Aviation Committee suspends certificate for Boeing-737 aircraft in Russia

According to public sources nearly 190 Boeing-737 aircraft of different modifications are currently in service in Russia

MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. The Interstate Aviation Committee suspends the certificate for all Boeing-737 aircraft in Russia until receiving a joint notice of the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency and the US Federal Aviation Administration on the aircraft airworthiness. Such a statement is contained in IAC letter to heads of Russian and US authorities posted on the IAC website.

IAC letter signed by the Air Register Chairman Vladimir Bespalov says Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency was in correspondence with the relevant US authority concerning urgent improvements of Boeing-737 aircraft rudder control system.
Operations of Boeing-737 to continue until receiving formal instruction

A source in a Russian air carrier told TASS that operations of Boeing-737 aircraft will continue until receiving a formal instruction.

Lucky a lot of the Transaero birds flew out in the last week to new homes then.

In a normal regulatory environment in a developed country a directive to 'fix' 'something' comes with a 90 day compliance window (or thereabouts) before mandatory grounding ever becomes an issue. Parts need ordering and that. Sometimes a 'check more often' instruction is applied immediately.

Many modern B737 aircraft in Russia are registered in Ireland and the airworthiness certificate is issued there, has the IAA agreed to co operate in this measure or have they even been informed of it as international protocol would require???

Looks like Southwest Airlines is really keeping up with its fleet consistency, especially that it has over a hundred 73Gs in its fleet already (most of them with winglets)... perhaps the next move should be ramping up its 738 orders even further to assign them to heavier routes in its network, if not introduce red-eye services to select markets.

More on the 'airworthiness' issues in Russia. Seems the agency cannot ground them and this agency has communicated with Ireland where a lot of the airworthiness certs are issued for the modern end of the Russian 737 fleet.

Keep an eye on the story over here. See if it amounts to anything in the end.

It's apparently more of a politics and an apparent conflict of interests issue. IAC president is a mother-in-law of the largest Transaero shareholder, so some people speculate that it might be a some sort of a dumb retaliatory move against Transaero creditors and their interests, but that'd be really dumb, mainly because most of Transaero's competitors prefer Toulouse's products. Moreover, IAC is an international body, being kind of an umbrella over all of CIS states, and in Russia it operates through the national regulator, that is, Rosaviatsuya, which is none too keen on following this strange and inexplicable order. In short, in Russia everyone are scratching their heads just as in the West, thinking «WTF is that»?

Jet Airways finally announces their MAX order, 75x MAX 8, previously listed as unidentified.

Quote:
Boeing, Jet Airways Confirm Order for 75 737 MAX 8 airplanes

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Jet Airways, India's premier international airline, announced an order for 75 737 MAX 8 airplanes at the 2015 Dubai Airshow today.

The announcement marks the largest order in Jet Airways' history and supports the airline's replacement strategy to have the most modern and environmentally progressive airplane fleet. The order, previously attributed to an unidentified customer, includes conversions of 25 Next-Generation 737s to 737 MAX 8s, as well as options and purchase rights for an additional 50 aircraft.
