900x has been hanging above the market for years, no takers so far.

Picture where the proposed door location is visible..

Probably serious doors to accommodate the slides..

Seems odd that when JAL has obviously a 220 seat requirement, they leave the actual availability of the required aircraft open for "talking about"..

The 737-900X would carry upto 220 passengers, wouldn't it intrude on B787-3 sales?

Boeing should have just upgraded the 757 and then they wouldn't have to worry about launching this. If JAL wanted something in the single-aisle, 220 pax market...the 757 would have been it. Damn shame the 757 is gone...best airplane in it's class.

But the 757 would not have commonality with the smaller 737s.

787-8 carries 223 passengers in 3 classes, while the physically same sized 787-3 carries 290+ passengers in 2 classes, and some huge number in 1 class. The 737-900X carries 220 pax in one class

I think if they wanted a 220 seater, they could have selected the available modern 220 seater offered to them. However other factors obviously were of overriding importance.

I was thinkng that if they needed 220 seats why didnt they order the 757-200 before the line was shut down? That was one damn fine airplane, and Boeing would not have to go through all the developemnt of the 900X that will now be required for this.

If 757 was such a great plane, why couldn't they sell them? If they could sell them, I assume that they wouldn't have shut the line.

The 757 WAS a fine airplane. But, why fly 737s and 757s, which share nothing in common, when you can fly all 737s? It makes financial sense. Further, it is no sweat of Japan's back that Boeing has to spend money to develop a product they want.
Also, the 757 was a much longer range airplane than the 737-900.

Maybe this will spark interest in other airlines that have been rumored as potential launch customers such as Virgin Blue and AM.


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Ugh.

Again, this is 220 seats in a one class configuration. The 737-900X is the same size as the 739. This is just Boeing finally catching it up to the A321.

The 757 in a one class configuration could hold what, 250 or 260 passengers?

Boeing needs the 739X. The 739 is a black sheep in the lineup.

If the 737-900 is the black sheep, what does that make the 737-600?

The 737-600 is a quality competitor to the A318.

The 737-900 is not a quality competitor to the A321.

That was my only basis for that particular comment.

The B736 is the dark grey sheep, because its sales figures are better than the B739's.

Udo,

Yes, but in the long run I wouldn't be surprised if the B739 overtakes the B736 in orders. Now, with no B757 being offered by Boeing, the B739X might get chosen by a few Boeing customers who want to bridge the gap between smaller B737s and the B787. However, with the Embraers in the low end, it might be harder for the B736 to pick any new orders...

Of course, who knows?

You mean all 1049 they could not sell?

240, it also has longer range and cruises much faster. Still, it is heavier and does not have commonality with the 737.

Neil is right about the -900 being the current black sheep simply because Boeing rushed it to the market to apease the needs of AS and KL, and did not fully engineer it to its greatest potential. This is why it has had its ass handed to it by the far better thought out A321 (which also had really really short range in the -100 version and was improved when Airbus saw a market in the US).

Yeah it had a great sales run, until 2001 when Boeing couldn't give them away...

Neil is right about the -900 being the current black sheep simply because Boeing rushed it to the market to apease the needs of AS and KL, and did not fully engineer it to its greatest potential.

Had AS and KL asked for the -900X features they would have. They didn't.

This is why it has had its ass handed to it by the far better thought out A321 (which also had really really short range in the -100 version and was improved when Airbus saw a market in the US).

The A321 has hardly been the corner-stone of the A320 Family. Tailoring the line to the 73G and 738 performance (and conversly, A319/A320) was the smart thing to do.

The 737-900X would carry upto 220 passengers, wouldn't it intrude on B787-3 sales?

The 787-3 will seat close to 300 passengers in a 737-like domestic configuration.

Why not develop the 900X as the replacement for the 900 and continue to call it the 900. Do you have to give it an entirely new designation just because you add two rear exit, move/reshape aft pressure bulkhead?
How much re-certifcation will these changes require?

Just curious.

They've sold 55, Delivered 46. Could they just build the last 9 in the existing configuration and begin offering the revised 900 (900X enhancements) for new orders.

I know with the added exit doors, you will be able to decrease seat pitch and add squeeze in another 5 rows of seating, so that you have a good boost to 220 in single class configuration.

With the gain of space in the rear with the redesign of the aft pressure bulkhead and push back of the rear galley, how much additonal capacity would be added in the 2-class configuration? Are we talking just one 1/2 row of seats here for an increase of 3 for a total capacity of 180 or a full row for an increase to 183?
