Quoting LY777 (Reply 5): I am still confused about the low 737 orders!
Not to worry, BCA is sitting on a pile of 737 orders. Their available delivery dates are now beginning to reach into what some think will be the Y1 development period. If customers have better info than us on this, or at least hesitation based upon market vibes, then many of them may want to wait and see. Fortunately, I don't think Boeing will succumb to Osbourne Syndrome on this.
Quoting NYC777 (Reply 7): Thanks good to be back until the next time I get the mods angry with me!!
I think everyone who actually takes a stand on something gets banned from this site at least once.

Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 10): It's an aging model, sold out through the point that many believe they will be selling it's replacemen
Just my thoughts. The production backlog goes on for years now and if you were to place an order today, chances are you will be taking delivery of it when Boeing and Airbus are on the verge of announcing replacements for the 737 and A320 Families and bang, you've wasted your money on a near-new, yet obsolete product!
Also the low 737 orders could be attributed to A320 orders and the fact that there are a lot of 737s out there...not sure on availability of each 737 model on the second-hand market but if someone could post some rough figures that would be great!
