Boeing Celebrates Rollout of First 737 MAX 9

Quote:
Airplane scheduled to fly in the coming weeks, deliver to customers in 2018


RENTON, Wash., March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) marked a milestone today as the first 737 MAX 9 made its debut in front of thousands of Boeing employees.

The 737 MAX 9 is the second member of Boeing's industry leading 737 MAX family, with a maximum capacity of 220 passengers and a range of 3,515 nautical miles.

The airplane now begins system checks, fueling and engine runs on the flight line. Once completed, the airplane will begin flight testing in the coming weeks – the final phase of verification of the operational characteristics and overall performance of a new airplane.

"The 737 MAX team continues to do a fantastic job getting us to these important milestones right on schedule," said Keith Leverkuhn, vice president and general manager of the 737 MAX program, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Our primary focus is delivering an aircraft that has the legendary reliability our 737 customers depend on, plus the optimized flexibility and range capability they desire."

The 737 MAX 9 is scheduled to enter service in 2018. The 737 MAX 8 is on track to deliver to customers in the second quarter of 2017.

The 737 MAX family has been designed to offer customers exceptional performance, flexibility and efficiency, with lower per-seat costs and an extended range that will open up new destinations in the single-aisle market. The MAX 8 and 9 will be followed in 2019 by the smaller MAX 7 and higher capacity MAX 200, while studies and discussions continue with customers on growing the family.

The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history, accumulating more than 3,600 orders to date from 83 customers worldwide.

Boeing 737 MAX 8 Earns FAA Certification

Quote:
First 737 MAX family member on track for customer deliveries in coming months

RENTON, Wash., March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced today that the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has certified the 737 MAX 8 airplane for commercial service. Boeing is now in the final stages of preparing for the first 737 MAX 8 delivery to customers in the coming months.

To earn certification for the 737 MAX 8, Boeing undertook a comprehensive test program that began just over one year ago with four airplanes, plus ground and laboratory testing. Following a rigorous certification process, the FAA granted Boeing an Amended Type Certificate for the 737 MAX 8, verifying the design complies with required aviation regulations and is safe and reliable.

"This certification is a true testament to the dedication and commitment of our entire MAX team throughout the process, from airplane design to flight testing," said Keith Leverkuhn, vice president and general manager, 737 MAX program, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The Renton team looks forward to delivering superior efficiency, reliability and design to our customers as they start to receive their 737 MAX aircraft in the next few months."

The 737 MAX 8 is the first in the family to be developed and meets customer demand in the heart of the single-aisle market. The 737 MAX 8 reduces fuel use and CO2 emissions by an additional 14 percent over today's most fuel-efficient single-aisle airplanes.

The 737 MAX family of aircraft is designed to offer customers exceptional performance, flexibility and efficiency, with lower per-seat costs and an extended range that will open up new destinations in the single-aisle market. The MAX 8 and 9 will be followed in 2019 by the smaller MAX 7 and higher capacity MAX 200, while studies and discussion continue with customers on growing the family.

The 737 MAX incorporates the latest technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets and other improvements to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market. It is the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history, accumulating more than 3,600 orders to date from 83 customers worldwide.

Now that the 737 MAX 8 has gotten FAA certification, does that mean the 737 MAX 8's already built for Southwest will be completed and flown to Southwest in Dallas to start the flight crew, cabin crew and ground crew training?

SWA won't take delivery of their first few until later this summer from what I understand. But now that they are certified, they should start flying out of Renton to Boeing field. After all they have 7 built & painted in SWA livery at RNT, plus the 4 test frames are theirs as well.

WESTJET REVISES BOEING 737 MAX ORDER TO INCLUDE -9S
Quote:
The original order, placed in August 2013 for 65 aircraft, included forty 737 MAX 8s and twenty five 737 MAX 7s, with deliveries starting this year.

A review of the carrier’s 2016 earnings report shows that the order now includes thirty 737 MAX 8s and ten 737 MAX 9s. The 737 MAX 7 order remains unchanged.

I still think Southwest might take delivery of maybe 2-3 737 MAX 8 airframes so they could start training flight crews, cabin crews, ground crews, and maintenance personnel in preparation for start of commercial operations this summer with the first seven airframes. The four test airframes probably won't be ready for service until some time in 2018.

First SWA Frames will be delivered in July this year.

I reckon that the MAX 7 will finally be canned if there ain't an order to announce in Paris in July . How many have been sold in the last 3 years, 2? 5? 10?
