You are right in pointing out where the cart and the horse are positioned.

A simpler explanation perhaps is that half (or more) of all 700s are in US airline fleets so if the Americans won't buy the MAX 7 in the same numbers they bought the 700 .....then nobody will.

In the sense that Emirates 'got' the A380 the Americans get the 700 and will surely get its successor, unless it is too big and too near the MAX 8 in capacity. Europe 'got' the 800, particularly Ryanair, but European airlines never showed the 700 any love at all.

The Xiamen order was already booked as an UFO order earlier this year, it has now been identified.

But Boeing did book another new unidentified order for 10 737s last week.

And in the news;

Boeing has confirmed that they are looking at a slightly bigger versions of the 737-7 and the 737-9

Quote:
Boeing confirms review of two 737 Max variants

Boeing is considering options for replacing the largest and smallest versions of the 737 Max with more competitive offerings that could be made ready long before more ambitious projects, such as the so-called Middle of the Market (MoM) concept, says vice-president and general manager Keith Leverkuhn.
full article:
https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...riants-424861/

They are going have to do some structural rework if they want to make the 737-9 a bit longer for it to have a similar capacity as the A321. But it won't be as big as the new MoM concept that will a 767 capacity, but with much lower operating costs. A stretch won't be easy, but it could come much earlier then the MoM which is still about 10 years out.

I believe that a slightly larger 737-7 is only proposed to cut production costs as it will have more commonality with the 737-8. It won't be as big as a problem if it's not ordered in large numbers. There will also be more money to spend on an improved version of the 737-9.

I think the airline that is pushing for the slightly larger 737 MAX 7 is no less than Southwest Airlines. And it could happen if Southwest were to commit to as many as 200 planes.

CFM LEAP-1B achieves joint EASA / FAA certification

• Delivering on all commitments
• Performing exceptionally well in flight test program

Quote:
COLOGNE, Germany / BOSTON, Massachusetts — 4 May 2016 — CFM International’s advanced LEAP-1B engine was today simultaneously awarded Type Certificates by both the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), paving the way for entry into commercial service in 2017.

CFM is unique in that it is the only engine manufacturer to gain dual original certification from both agencies, rather one lead agency issuing a type certification and the second agency validating that certification. This reflects CFM’s 50/50 design and production structure between parent companies GE and Safran, which has been so successful for more than 40 years.

“This is another great milestone for the LEAP program and the hard-working team behind it,” said Allen Paxson, executive vice president for CFM. “Everyone, from the project and engineering teams to manufacturing and our suppliers, has done an incredible job of keeping this program on schedule and building an engine that is delivering everything that we have promised.”

The LEAP-1B engine flew for the first time on the Boeing 737 MAX on January 29, 2016. Since then, two more aircraft have been added to the test program in March and, to date, these three airplanes have logged a combined total of more than 100 test flights, including completing high altitude flight testing in La Paz, Bolivia, recently.

“We couldn’t be happier with the way this engine is performing,” said Francois Bastin, executive vice president of CFM International. “Boeing is racking up an impressive number of flight hours with the test aircraft and initial indications are that engine performance is meeting expectations.”

The LEAP-1B engine features some of the industry’s most advanced technologies, including 3-D woven carbon fiber composite fan blades and fan case; a unique debris rejection system; 4th generation three dimensional aerodynamic designs; the Twin-Annular, Pre-Swirl (TAPS) combustor featuring additively manufactured fuel nozzles; ceramics matrix composite shrouds in the high-pressure turbine; and titanium aluminide (Ti-Al) blades in the low-pressure turbine.

Rumour doing the rounds tonight that Europes biggest all 737 airline, Ryanair, is just about to announce a full year profit within €20m of €1.4bn (that's in the range €1.38bn to €1.42bn then) .

CFM International receives joint EASA / FAA certification for LEAP-1B engine

Latest Update: CFM International receives joint EASA / FAA certification for LEAP-1B engine



The CFM International joint venture has been awarded type certificates by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for its advanced LEAP-1B engine.

The certification enables the engine to enter into commercial service next year. This January, the LEAP-1B engine flew for the first time on a Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, with subsequent test flights conducted on two more aircraft.

All three aircraft have so far collectively completed more than 100 test flights, including a recent high-altitude flight testing in La Paz, Bolivia. Boeing is racking up an impressive number of flight hours with the test aircraft and initial indications are that engine performance is meeting expectations.

1A005 N8705Q have to be re-worked to certification standard first, that's why she was rolled out without engines. Will sit outside for some time. Interior isn't probably installed.
