Our investment in a fleet of B737 Max 200 will accommodate our strategy of growing Vietjet's coming international route network, including long-haul flights.
Dang... and it only started operations just like yesterday! I seriously hope it will expand its international operations to include all of the ASEAN region.

I don't believe there is a real order. Only a hairy stunt to pressurise the US government on ExIm. This one is conveniently far away from Deltas widebody counter ExIm lobbying for a change.

ps. It turns out this is actually the 3rd order for the MAX 200, 1 other order for just 6 planes was placed by another undisclosed airline.
OK so ONLY 95% of genuine Max 200 orders, so far, are from Ryanair. I stand corrected.

With out the engines installed you can notice how the landing gear is extended compared to the new generation models.

Iran Air to buy 100 aircraft from Boeing

Iran's state-owned carrier Iran Air has entered into a deal to buy 100 aircraft from US plane maker Boeing, marking a major step in US-Iran economic relations after sanctions were lifted on Tehran last year.

Potentially worth $25bn at list prices, the deal is yet to receive necessary approvals from the US and Iran Governments. Once approved, Iran Air will purchase aircrafts mainly from the new generation of Boeing 737 and 777 type aircraft.

The 737 family of aircraft are single-aisle jets and typically used for flights of up to 5h, while, the 777 is a larger plane that can transport passengers for 12h or beyond. Boeing was quoted by BBC as saying: "Boeing will continue to follow the lead of the US Government with regards to working with Iran's airlines, and any and all contracts with Iran's airlines will be contingent upon US Government approval."



However, Boeing has not disclosed further details of the deal. With the purchase, Iran's civil aviation authority is planning to modernise its fleet by including between 400 and 500 aircraft over the next ten years.

In January, a separate deal was announced between French aerospace firm Airbus and Iran Air and is still waiting for approval from regulators in the US where a number of Airbus' parts are manufactured.

The deal was for 118 new aircraft, reported Associated Press. Iran has also ordered 20 aircraft from French-Italian aircraft maker ATR.

There is currently a brand new Alaska 739 sitting inside the hanger at BFI with a giant 100 on the side. It is a special for Boeing's 100 years and will be flown to Oshkosh next month.

On a related SW matter. SW deferred 67 MAX orders last week out to the 2020s some time.

This was because SW have had great success in the past few years mopping up surplus -NG aircraft on the world market such as the Transaero 700s and using their enormous windfall profits since the oil price collapse 2 years back to pay cash for these frames.

They are getting rid of their classic fleet ( still c.100 left, mainly -300s) and mostly by this time next year as their second hand and new NG sourcing continues. All in all a brilliant piece of timing considering the enormous size of their fleet.

By end 2017 they will have _some_ 737 MAX 8 aircraft in service *14 were contractually due by then and the rest of their fleet will be NG only and they also have 70 x new -800 frames on order for delivery in 2016 and 2017.

In summer it will be able to do Western Europe <> US East Coast. So will the Airbus neos.

It might be different into the teeth of winter jetstream westbound but it should be able to do an Ireland <> Boston leg westbound even then, Norwegian, for one, seem to be banking that it can as they are looking at developing westbound routes ex ORK with 737s planning originally on starting with a summer only 737-800 service.

Norwegian now have 108 MAX 8's on firm order with official first delivery in late 2017.....but I am sure Boeing can manage to deliver a few in time for the Atlantic summer season start in May 2017.

US-based Southwest Airlines will postpone delivery of 67 Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft by nearly six years. The move will push $1.9bn in planned capital spending of the company beyond 2020.

However, Southwest Airlines plans to expedite six 737-800 orders to next year from 2018 to help cover the previously announced retirement of its oldest 737 aircraft. The airline aims to expand its fleet by 2% a year through 2018. The retirement of the airline's remaining 737-300s will be completed by the third quarter of next year, reported The Dallas Morning News.



Southwest Airlines said that the change had not altered its plans to take the first delivery of the Max 8, which is Boeing's newest version of the 737, next year. The airline's chief financial officer Tammy Romo was quoted by Bloomberg as saying: "It has nothing to do with the Max.

"The Max is a fabulous airplane and we will fly it in 2017. "It really is shells, or the number of aircraft."

The 67 postponed Max jets were originally scheduled for delivery between 2019 and 2022, and they will now be delivered in 2023 through 2025. Under its fleet changes plan, Southwest Airlines will also move up 13 options for Max 8 jets to 2019-2020 from 2027. The airline is also planning to launch a new reservation system, which will be operational by later this year.

wouldnt this be a good thing though? It should open up more slots for boeing to be able to sell more planes.
