The Delta deal that bounced earlier this because of the pilot union rejection is back on. But it's just 20 737-900ERs instead of the original 40. They will also still buy the Boeing owned Embraer 190s, which Boeing bought from Air Canada as part of their 737MAX order.

Quote:
Embraer 190s, more Boeing 737-900ERs coming to Delta

Delta will add up to 20 Embraer 190 and 20 new Boeing 737-900ER jets acquired through a new agreement with The Boeing Co.

The agreement is part of the airline’s continued strategy to improve its efficiency by adding additional 737-900ERs and upgauging its mainline fleet with the nearly 100-seat, twin-engine E190 jets while reducing the use of small regional aircraft.

The order announced today offered Delta more compelling economics over a previously cancelled order that also included Boeing-held E190s.

The additional Boeing 737-900ERs will bring the total in Delta’s fleet to 120 by 2019. The aircraft features large overhead bins and audio/video seatback entertainment with 20 seats in First Class, 21 seats in Delta Comfort+ and 139 seats in the Main Cabin.

Huh... and those will come on top of what Delta will be getting from Airbus, especially the A321 I've seen in another thread. It seems like the competition for that aircraft from US carriers seems to be a bit fierce, especially that all the big 3 US carriers (United, American, and Delta) operate multiple variants of the 737, along with Alaska and Southwest.

And a quick question: do you think Hawaiian Airlines would be a good candidate to get the B737-700, especially for its inter-island operations?

Hawaiian is now looking for more 717s. If they want to replace those at a later date they will most likely go with proper regional jets like the E-Jets or the C Series. Or go A319neo as they already have the A321s coming in for the Hawaii - US West Coast flights.

China Southern will order the 50x 737 MAX + 30x 737NG's.

Quote:
Boeing Statement on China Southern Airlines' Commitment for 80 737s

SEATTLE, Dec. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE:BA] is pleased that China Southern Airlines has announced a commitment to purchase 80 737s. The commitment includes a combination of 30 Next-Generation 737s and 50 737 MAX airplanes, valued at $8.38 billion at current list prices.

"China Southern's commitment is a solid endorsement of the popularity of the Next-Generation 737 and 737 MAX," said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president, Northeast Asia Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We share an enduring partnership with China Southern and we are excited to see that the 737 airplanes will play an important role in their continued success."

The order will be posted on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website once all contingencies are cleared.

And also a more modest top-up order from Jet2.com

From Bloomberg's report on the China Southern commitment:


"China Southern’s Xiamen Airlines unit also agreed to buy 30 737MAX planes for a total of $2.88 billion before discounts, China Southern said in a separate exchange filing."

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articl...es-from-boeing


Xiamen already has 30 737 MAX on order, this would bring their total to 60.

143 737s sold in the last week. Not bad for a year end sales blitz. We will see when Boeing updates the order books if the China airlines orders were undisclosed or if they are brand new orders.

And from the weekly orderbook update (orders up to December 15)

2x 737 BBJ

And a NG to MAX conversion for 8 737s by ALC (AirLeaseCorporation).

http://www.boeing.com/commercial/#/orders-deliveries



The China Southern order is new, the Xiamen order was previously booked as UFO.

This Boeing press release from a couple of days ago wasn't posted yet, but there might be a link to the China Southern deal.

It also shows that Boeing is working hard to get the 737NG conversion program off the ground.

Quote:
Boeing, China Postal Airlines Announce Purchase of 10 Next-Generation 737 Boeing Converted Freighters

BEIJING, Dec. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] today announced an agreement with China Postal Airlines for 10 Next-Generation 737 Boeing Converted Freighters (BCFs), pending a program launch.

Through its converted freighter programs, Boeing extends the valuable service life of a passenger airplane by modifying it to function as a freighter.

"This is a historic order both for China Postal and Boeing," said Yufeng Li, president of China Postal Airlines, who signed the agreement with Boeing leaders at a ceremony today in Beijing. "The 737-800 BCF will bring to our freighter fleet more advanced avionics, better fuel efficiency and lower operating costs that will ensure China Postal's continued success as a leader in the industry."

The 737-800 is the first Next-Generation 737 that Boeing will offer for conversion. Through the 737 BCF program, Boeing will support customers in the narrow-body freighter market, a segment of the freighter market growing quickly around the world.

China Postal Airlines joins Hangzhou-based YTO Airlines as a launch customer for the Boeing BCF program.

China Postal's agreement with Boeing – which also includes the purchase of seven Boeing 757-200s that the airline plans to convert into freighters – marks the largest purchase order in the airline's history.
Boeing Press release
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/2015-12-...ted-Freighters


Especially the last sentence that I quoted is important here.


Brief article by Reuters on the China Southern deal:

http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSH9N10G01H20151217

"* Says in agreement to sell 13 B757, 3 B733 and spare engines to Boeing"


First Boeing announces they are selling converted 757s to China Postal Airlines as part of a larger 737 deal. 2 days later again the 757s are part of a deal, but this time their buying them. Together with the Embraer's that Boeing is selling to Delta is shows how used planes are basically used as currency to get the bigger deals. It probably happens more often then we think. The 737-800 that will be converted to freighters for China Postal will also come from somewhere else, but we probably will only know where they come from when they are being delivered to the airline.

Boeing has signed an agreement with China Postal Airlines to supply ten next generation 737 Boeing cohttp://www.aerospace-technology.com/...rlines-4754006nverted freighters (BCFs) for an undisclosed sum.

The aircraft maker is launching its next generation 737 BCF programme by converting used 737-800 passenger planes into freighters.

Boeing collaborated with BFGoodrich Aerospace and InterContinental Aircraft Services (ICAS) to develop the 737 passenger to freighter conversion programme.ICAS is an alliance of Air Asia, China Airlines, Evergreen Aviation Technologies, and Aerospace Industrial Development.

Its probably doing some ground tests outside so Boeing knows if it needs to fix anything before its first flight and they probably will turn on the engines for the first time and see how the systems run and other ground tests.
