Where have all the 737 orders gone off too?

Did the rumor about the potential replacement spook everybody? Or is the backlog that long?

Virgin Blue? They are reported to be directly ordering 6 773ER and leasing another. General vibe is that the orders would get firmed up rather quickly. If these are for 6 773ERs, then my money is definitely on Virgin Blue.

Actully the UFOs are freighters so I don't think it's Virgin Blue unless they're offering a new LCC level of service!!!

Well, you can't "UFO" a plane that isn't launched...  Wink

It very well may be that Boeing announces the 797 at this years Le Bourget show. 2 months in and only 3 follow-on 737 orders is suspicious in any book, when previous years have seen 600+ 737 orders each year. Even in a "down year" you'd expect 50 or so 737 orders announced by this time, if not booked...

AA, WN and DL are "waiting in the wings" for the new plane. WN would order many, DL is likely to announce a large aircraft order and replacement plan as they exit BK this summer (in time for Paris?), AA also needs to replace a ton of MD80s in due time, and 757s as well. Those three alone would sell out much of the first few years, with CO also in the wings to replace the remaining 733s and 735s with something, and start replacing their 757s. AS also needs to replace older 737s.

And that's just USA based airlines, and it ignores NW, UA and US, who could be swayed from the A320 if the product is right and Airbus doesn't have a viable A320NG in response, and they all have 757s that need replacing and the A321 (nor the 739ER for that matter) doesn't cut it for some uses...



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

Could those be the 777-200F LA wants to order for their cargo division?

Could be but it could also be for China Southern.

Who would have expected such an order split-up? 67 of 70 aircraft ordered so far are widebodies! That's 95,7%!!! I know it's early in the year but nevertheless very impressive. Even more when you consider that 50% of all orders are for the 20+ year old 767. Now that's what one could call a cash cow  Smile

Correct. CZ does seem the most likely customer.
