Boeing just released their monthly order and delivery update.

The 62 737s that Boeing booked a UFO order last month was one order for 62 x 739ERs!

I'm willing to bet it's for either US or AA.

Also the 11 777 UFO break dowwn as follows:

8 x 77W
2 x 77W
1 x 777F

If its US then there should be likewise an UFO order for ~20 787s as the bids were linked.

The number would correlate to what I've read in the past that US is seeking, but I don't know why they'd mix their fleet. They are a very, very loyal Airbus customer. Just doesn't sound right--not saying that you couldn't be right--but I'd have to see Doug Parker saying it's so, and the US press release, before I'd believe it!

WOW! This is really exiting news!!! Not only does it give the 739ER more momentum in the market, but it shows that it was a good decision to launch this plane! With this order I believe the total order number passed 100 units for the 739ER. It will be very interesting to see what company is behind this deal.

This order takes the -900ER to 169 orders, so the 100 order threshold had already been reached.

 checkmark 

And I'm leaning more towards US, because they're 739s, and because we keep hearing more about an upcoming order.

I think AA will probably go for 737-7s and 738s, but not now. Later.

Just my thoughts.

As an aside, I just hopped over to boeing.com to check total orders for the 787 and 737 and guess what, the 737 now stands at exactly 7,000 orders Big grin .

In one of the most recent US Crew News, Doug Parker gave a detailed pro's/con's discussion regarding the Airbus vs Boeing bake off.

For starters the planned order would be a linked for both narrow and widebody types. Pricing being offered by the manufacturers is contingent on a 739+787 or 32x+350 combo. It would not make any financial sense to mix and match types as huge discounts on the table would evaporate.

His comments about Boeing included the 739 was quite an impressive aircraft. The 787 would be available for delivery starting in 2010, however a 787 order would ultimately require more airframes to replace both the 762 and A330 fleets versus A350s which could be operated in conjunction for A330s for several years. A Boeing order could also keep manufacturers on their toes in the future ensuring US does not become reliant on Airbus sole source supplier.

For Airbus his comments covered the fact that obviously more A32X would further add to scale of economies due parts, training, crews etc are already in place for the model. Airbus was allowing US to keep its original A350 pricing which represents a 30% discount off the now even more capable aircraft -- however one that is not yet 100% firm, and one that US would have to wait quite sometime to get.

Doug mentioned they had hoped to make a decision by late April, however the contest was extremely close with the manufacturers continuously providing ever improving terms.

I too was thinking that this order is for an airline with a lot of 752s to replace. Similar 2 class capacity (180 for 739; 200 for 752). Range is different (3200nm for 739; 3900nm for 752). But for an airline such as AA that doesn't use its 752s like CO does (esp on trans-Atl), the range difference might not be an issue.

This seems like too many 739s for US in my opinion. AA seems like the most likely candidate.

Or maybe we'll all be shocked and WN is "super-sizing".  Wink

I think so too. It makes sense for AA to order the 739ER to replace in the long run the 752, the oldest being now 18. I don't see US ordering the 739ER since they are very loyal to Airbus as pointed above and they never showed an interest in any NG737 variant. The only other carrier I see ordering the type in large number in the United States is Delta. Delta also has a large fleet of 752, the oldest being over 20. Continental has the 739ER already but I don't think they would order as many as 62 of those, they seem to be very happy with the 738.

Sounds like interest to me.

As far as the loyalty to Airbus goes - why? What reason does US have to stay loyal to one manufacturer? The debt to Airbus has been paid.

I'm still sticking with US on this one.

Yeah, but DL is starting to use their 752s on trans-Atlantic routes, which AFAIK the 739 is not capable of doing.

Quick correction: CO has the 739 (non-ER). And I agree they wouldn't order 62 of them.

I have a hard time seeing 20 extra seats as "close" in capacity...when you're talking this size of a/c. To me, the 757 is a leap over the 739 in capacity and operational ability. On the other hand, what do I know...

I am not familiar with the 739s capability's, but I would be worried about cargo hauling capacity and short/hot/high performance, AA flies its 757 to some very challenging places in Latin America and they are usually full with cargo.

Is anybody familiar with the hauling capabilities of the 737? do they match the 757?

The 739 is a pretty big step up in capacity from US' 733s and A320s. I also was not under the impression US was interested in getting rid of its A321s?

Not at all. Matter of fact in 2006 they upped the order with Airbus.

US Airways Increases Airbus Order
August 31, 2006

US Airways announced Wednesday that it added seven new Airbus A321s to an order for 30 Airbus A320 family aircraft. The change also includes switching existing orders for one A320 aircraft and seven A319 aircraft to an order for eight A321 aircraft.

The delivery of the 15 A321 aircraft is expected to begin in July 2008 and continue through 2010.

This narrow body RFP is to begin replacing the 757 and 737-300/400s fleets.

97 Columba : I think so, too. right now Fedex is looking for 757s to replace their 727 (which makes me sad as a 727 fan but those are the days... I just love to s
98 Columba : I think that the business relations between US and Airbus are too good that they would snub Airbus on their home turf that way. It would be a huge bl
99 Danny : It is not US behind those 30+30 787s.
100 Columba : I never believed that. I was saying that if US had ordered the 787 and 737-900 they would have announced it before Le Bourget.
101 Warreng24 : Not so much to do with the flat bulk head, but more to do with the additional set of exit doors. Duh! Oops. Totally forgot about that. Thanks!
102 SkyvanMan : Could those 737-9's be replacements for US's fleet of 757's, I dont think they fly any of their 757s on maximum range, and they may be replacing those
103 ER757 : I really believe these are for AA. The numbers are about right and as others have pointed out, US said they would order narrow & wide body aircraft to
104 Flighty : US has about 25 757s that they never fly on long flights (and ~15 that they do). Plus, US has about 35 734s to replace. 25+35=60. Boeing does not wan
105 Columba : I believe the 737-900ER is too big to be a 737-400 replacement. Also a streamline A32x narrowbody fleet for US would make much more sense as a mixed
106 Scottieprecord : Would Boeing have any reason to mark the order as 'UFO' if ILFC or GECAS were the buyer? It makes sense for actual airlines, more media attention when
107 Thebry : Good point... they could eventually replace their 744s and use the balance for expansion. Plus, NZ does seem to order planes in dribs and drabs. They
108 Lumberton : SUH likes the lime light--especially at Paris!
109 ScottB : Nope. The maximum seating for the 737-900 (non-ER) based on exit limitations is 189 -- this is well under what CO will put in the -900ER's. The flat
110 Warreng24 : Understand that this is what CO does. However, in terms of the FAA maximum number of seats, 189 for the non-ER, but for the -ER model I believe that
111 Flighty : This is all true. The 739ER is a perfect match for them. Those extra 100 or 200 nm would be very useful to US versus the A321.
112 Ikramerica : Yes, but since CO was well below the limit without the new doors, the new doors don't enable an increase, as they weren't "door" limited to begin wit
