Sibir Air (S7) has ordered 10 x 738s plus 10 options on a further 10.

Delivery of the first 4 will be in 2010 followed by 6 in 2011.

MOSCOW, April 26 (Reuters) - Russian carrier Sibir will buy 10 Boeing (BA.N: Quote, Profile, Research) planes of the 737-800 model by 2011, executives from the Russian and U.S. firm said on Thursday, valuing the deal at around $700 million.

Are these the first 737s for the carrier?

Nice to hear, looking forward to seeing them in S7's striking colours  Smile

They have a dozen second-hand 737s, IIRC 10 737-500s and 2 737-400s.

One of these orders where I would dare to say: that one is firm when the planes have been delivered. 2011 is far away (which, BTW, would somewhat confirm that the 737 line is sold out for the next years) and apparently they have outstanding A320 orders as well.

Thank you

Boeing have confirmed the order as an Unidentified order in a press release;

SEATTLE, April 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boeing today confirmed that Russia's S7 Group has ordered 10 Next-Generation 737-800s and secured purchase rights for an additional 10 of the world's most popular jetliner. The aircraft have been carried as "unidentified" on the Boeing order Web site since last November. At list prices, the order is valued at $705 million.

Doesn't Sibir also operate the A319? I thought Sibir was going for all-Airbus aircraft (A319s)?

A388

No, they currently operate 2 -400s & 10 -500s.

They have a fleet of 7 A310s, but no other Airbus planes. They also operate 9 Il-86s and nearly 30 Tu-154s. From the size of the order it looks like these -800s are to replace their old 737s. I would have expected a bigger order if these were to replace the Tu-154s.

It's a shame to see Russian airlines ordering Western planes, but I guess they really don't have much choice these days.  

Better order in some green paint and sunglasses!

Let's hope they'll finally start to train their crews properly. I recently had the questionable pleasure of flying them from Nizhnij-Novgorod via Moscow DME to Frankfurt... Nizhnij-Moscow was a horrible codeshare operated by PermAir (Tupolev TU-134A-3, RA-75775) that was almost falling apart, and the onwards flight was on an S7 A319 with about 10Pax on board.

The departure was very uncomfortable, probably due to the very light load, they flew the A319 almost fighter style, at least that is how it felt. Very steep climb and curves.

After touchdown in FRA, they inititally only applied reversers and speed brakes, but no wheel brakes, which cause the aircraft to decelerate only moderately. After a while, they hit the brakes real hard, which was again uncomfy. They stopped on the runway centerline, and then turned left towards the high speed taxiway. Surprisingly - I was sitting in row 3 or so, I could see the solid yellow line leading to the taxiway at least about 2 meters to the left of the aircraft. They initiated that very sharp left turn only to realise they won't be able to take the runway exit they intended to take. So they stopped again, turned right, got back on to the runway centerline, accelerated a bit and rolled to the next taxiway.

Knowing how busy an airport FRA is, I was wondering how many go arounds this caused...

It's the worst airline I've ever been on... Airlines like S7 really ruin the safety record of modern airliners...

My bad. Don't know how I missed those (not like you could mistake them for any other airline!)
