559 total 737s this year; 10 short of last year's record 569. Not bad.

If got an airline in my mind who needs and was planning to order 20 737's..KLM, they said earlier this year that they were considering an order for short haul planes to replace the 737-300/400's which are still in the fleet. the order was planned end this year or early next year, so good chance they are the airline.

Perhaps they're making a bid for A350 production work as well (mandrels spinning composite fuselage sections)?

Wonder if they would hire Boeing's LCFs to move the fuselage sections then!

What's interesting about all those 737s is that very few go to risky airlines. 30 for Lion and even that is a followup order (we'll see if they take all 60), a few here and there otherwise, but 500 of them are for well established customers. And China, which isn't going to default or go bankrupt.

If last year was the year of the startup airline, this year it's been the "vote of confidence" for Boeing...

Hi,

I read in a mexican aviation forum that A Volar was investing 700 Million dollars for the purchase of 20 new 737-800, could this be their order?

Thanks,
Archie

At these rates, Boeing would appear to be in no rush to introduce their 737RS. It almost seems that no new narrowbody will come out until all the Classics have been replaced with NGs... and then the RS will be the NG replacement.

Thats one way of looking at it......another thought is that all of these 737NG sales will provide Boeing with capital to fund the 737RS project.

I don't think the question is about funding or sales, it's more about the lack of technology. Currently technology including engines exists to provide at best 10% (as was shown in another thread) and Boeing and Airbus and Airlines all want at least 20% to make it worth their while to invest in a whole new product!

For now, the 737NG and A32X is the best we'll see for a while until something more radical in terms of technology is found!!!

I agree! However, if oil were to jump to $100-$120/bbl, that currently obtainable 10% suddenly jumps to +20%. Then B and A will feel airline pressure to come out with a new narrowbody sooner rather than later.

On the other hand, if oil drops to $30-$40/bbl then that current 10% advantage over current models becomes less... and there is even less pressure to introduce a new narrowbody.

Furthermore, with each year that B is able to "squeeze" out of the NGs means that the RS will incorporate further basic R&D in addition to improvements and lessons learned coming out of the 787 program.

On a side note...I like this comment by Boeing's CEO..

"• Pending sales campaigns. McNerney said he is "optimistic" about major ongoing campaigns with Lufthansa and British Airways."...

Well, BA already secured itself some 20 777 delivery positions a few months ago, IIRC, so that order is only dependant on when and what specific model(s) BA will order. Lufthansa, don't wanna comment on that, LH is starting to drag this order on longer than SQ did their 787/A350 decision (only to order both).

True, BA will probably go Boeing...and at least LH has given some kind of "definitive" for their order time.....but its the first time we've heard anything from someone from Boeing management (and especially being the Chairman/CEO of the company)... Smile

A minor clarification if I may sir, it was 10 not 20, production slots covering delivery 2008 through 2010. They announced that publicly on March 8, 2006.

Ah, thanks for the correction, guess I was a bit too optimistic about the potential order  Silly .

The bottom line is that the A320 and the 737NG are very effeceint to begin with . The new composite frames , electrical systems only perhaps give 40-50% of the eff , the other 50% of the eff. acheived is via More effecient engines which are out of boeing's and airbus's hands . Boeing has said a lot more about the 737RS and so far they are studying the requirment . In the NB market there needs to be a correct balance between Lower Fuel burn , Faster turn around times , Lower cost of maintaince and High Reliability . We may see a platform in 2013 that gives around 10-15% Lower fuel burn but offers much much lower maintaince costs and higher reliability (although i cant see how they can go any higher then the NG) etc etc or might be more economical to procure and operate etc . All in all engines play a very big role in development cycles and I think neither Airbus nor boeing is willing to jump the gun until the engine manufacterers are ready and willing to commit.
