With 3000 Unfilled orders I would say the rumor that Boeing will be building 737s in North Charleston, SC is probably true. Especially when you consider the fact they have taken options on multiple 200"acre tracts around the airport and the current 787 plant.

Air Lease Corporation has firmed up another 5 737s.
http://active.boeing.com/commercial/orders/index.cfm

It's unclear if this a top-up for MAX order or extra 737-800s. The last option seems more logical right now since they only have 3 unfilled orders for the 737-800.

Yuhhuu. As remember Barack Obama and Rusdi Kirana CEO of Lion Group signed it together..

Question: now we've already heard about the American Airlines—US Airways merger, how many more 737Max aircraft do you believe that American will order to retire (potentially) US Airways' Boeing 737-400s? And how's the replacement plan for the MD-80s to B737s coming along?

What about the 737 MAX 7? I see no launch customer yet and I see no effort from Boeing promoting it, hopefully some airline will go for it before it’s too late (Southwest maybe?, UA for its hot and high routes?); it will be sad if it gets discontinued because of lack of customer demand.

I think it’s a pretty capable airplane, more so that its rival - the A319.

Since the A319 NEO also isn't a huge sales success with just 26 orders we can conclude that the market for the smallest variant of both the 737 MAX and the A320 NEO isn't that big right now.

Yes, although it's Lion Air (49%) together with Malaysia's National Aerospace and Defence Industries (NADI) (51%) that are the owners.

btw, the 737 in the picture is the 7.500th 737.



In other news, a huge Ryanair order could be announced next week.

There is a tendency currently which shows airlines are not longer interested in the smaller versions of both, B-737 and A32X. The 737-600 has had unnoticed, the 737-700 has also had a poor sucess sales along the A-318. The A-319 has escaped to that tendency, however.

What are you based in to support such statement? is it kinda a personal preference?

The 737 MAX 7 must be compared not with any standard A319 but with the A319NEO and I strongly believe that the Airbus' aircraft is more interesting for airlines than the MAX-7. Just wait & see the orders.

Lets have a look at the current orders then.

737 MAX-7: 0
A319NEO: 26

and the other competitor in this market segment.

Bombardier CS300: 114


It looks like the ancient 737 and A320 are loosing out to a completely new plane here.

Ryanair has announced an order for 175 737-800s, but it's not yet firmed up.

Quote:
Ryanair, Boeing Complete Purchase Agreement For 175 737-800s

When finalized, deal will allow Ryanair to grow traffic to more than 100 million passengers per annum, and create more than 3,000 new jobs across the airline

Ryanair, Europe’s only ultra-low-cost carrier (ULCC), today (19 Mar) signed an agreement with the Boeing Company to purchase 175 new Next Generation 737-800 airplanes. When finalised, the deal will be worth nearly $15.6 billion at current list prices, and will allow Ryanair to grow its airline to more than 400 airplanes, serving more than 100 million passengers per year across Europe by the end of the delivery stream in 2018.

The agreement was signed by Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary and Boeing Commercial Airplanes President CEO Ray Conner in New York (19 Mar). Upon approval by Ryanair’s shareholders, the purchase will become Boeing’s largest deal to date in 2013 and will be the largest ever aircraft order from a European airline. It will sustain thousands of skilled manufacturing jobs in Boeing and its supplier companies and will represent the largest ever capital investment by an Irish company in U.S. manufacturing and U.S. jobs.

These Boeing airplanes will create more than 3,000 new jobs for pilots, cabin crew and engineers at Ryanair’s growing number of aircraft bases across Europe. Approximately 75 of these new aircraft will replace some of Ryanair’s existing fleet of 305 Boeing 737s, but the remainder will drive new growth of Ryanair’s fleet of young, highly efficient airplanes. These airplanes will allow Ryanair to grow its low-cost airline service by about 5 percent per annum over the next several years, taking Ryanair’s traffic to over 100 million passengers by March 2019.

As Ryanair continues to plan its future as Europe’s low-cost airline leader, it continues to evaluate the benefits of Boeing’s 737 MAX aircraft which enters service in 2017.

Announcing the order, Ryanair CEO, Michael O’Leary, said:

“Ryanair is pleased to sign this agreement with Boeing to purchase 175 new 737-800 jets, which will expand our fleet to over 400 units, creating over 3,000 new jobs for pilots, cabin crew and engineers, while allowing us to grow our low-cost airline service by about 5 percent per annum over the next several years and take our traffic to 100 million passengers by March 2019.

Ryanair is proud to buy Boeing, who have always made great aircraft and the 737-800 has been the cornerstone of Ryanair’s success due to its great engineering and phenomenal reliability. These 175 new airplanes will enable us to lower cost and airfares even further, thereby widening Ryanair’s cost and price leadership over other airlines in Europe. They provide Ryanair with the additional capacity to exploit substantial growth opportunities that currently exist as many of Europe’s flag carrier and smaller airlines are restructuring and reducing their short-haul operations.
Ryanair has the largest fleet of Boeing airplanes in Europe, and today’s order will enable Ryanair to expand and grow by offering more competition, lower prices, and better choice across the continent of Europe. Ryanair is proud to be investing in high-quality US manufacturing and jobs.”


Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO, Ray Conner, said:

"This purchase agreement is an amazing testament to the value that the Next Generation 737 brings to Ryanair. We are pleased that the Next-Generation 737, as the most efficient, most reliable large single-aisle airplane flying today, has been and will continue to be the cornerstone of the Ryanair fleet. Our partnership with this great European low-cost carrier is of the utmost importance to everyone at The Boeing Company and I could not be more proud to see it extended for years to come."

And also no MAX order... yet.

Quote:
Ryanair expects to sign 737 Max deal by end-year

rish low-cost carrier Ryanair expects to sign a deal by the end of this year or early next year for more than 100 Boeing 737 Max aircraft, on top of today's agreement for 175 737-800s.

O’Leary isn't yet completely happy about the number of seats and the weight of the 737 MAX-8.
