Quoting Glom (Reply 9): Good to see they've past the 300 mark. Clearly, there is a bit of a slowdown, not too unexpected after the last two years.
What slowdown? 315 for the first four months is on course for well over 1000 for the year since December is nearly always the strongest sales month. Boeing have sold far more widebodies so far this year than they did in the first four months of any previous year. This could be a record year for Boeing both in terms of units and value.
AA will not order new build as they have (50) 737-800's still on the books to be delivered from orders dating 1996-2001.
AA announced that they will take (47) 737-800 aircraft under a previously existing purchase commitment. Bumping up from 2013-16 to 2009-12 timeframe.
Quoting Hamlet69 (Reply 20): It's not. But Boeing will not show it on the frontpage, as that only deals with 2007 orders. As S7's order was in 2006, it will not appear on the frontpage, but rather show up when one does a search.
I did not say it was on the frontpage. Does a search? The carrier S7 cannot be searched for only UFO's for (10) 737-8.
Quoting Klkla (Reply 21): Minor correction.... the 737-700ER is also available in addition to above mentioned variants.
Thanks... Forgot they moved some of that 2003 order of (45) 737-7 to the ER model. They received their first on Feb16th this year.
