Good news for Boeing & Civil Aviation.
Seems like Airbus order will follow.

Good news for Boeing! Would be good to see SU operating 737's again. I still remember their nice 734's coming in to AMS.

Not sure this means SU will operate any 737's, though it would look god in SU c/s.

I imagine the 737's will end up with Transaero and other Russian carriers.

There is some mess here in Russia related to Rosavia and Aeroflot.
Rosavia is supposed to be legally idependent from SU. While Aeroflot (via shares or in another way) should actually build a new effective airline on remainigs of AirUnion, Domodedovo Airlines and almost a dozen of regional airlines.

I don't think some kind of a merger of Rosavia and Aeroflot is considered.
Anyway I am glad if we will have more 737NG here.

I think you are correct. There should be more than enough demand for two majors.
It is interesting that in the Boeing press release, the quantity was not mentioned.

Can we just say it's Russia?

Congrats Boeing, big order.

Seems like Airbus order will follow.

Will that be for a similar number of A32X's, or could there be some widebodies in the total??

I suspect that for the Airbus narrow bodies the quantity will be less than the 50 +15.
The Airbus wide bodies can be interesting. SU's 777 capacity were too large and they reverted back to their 767s. So will SU order A350 which are the same or larger than the 777?
This leaves the A330, and enough had been discussed about the A330 v the 787.

They've already ordered 22 of both the A350 and the 787...

After reading the article, SU really did not want the 737s but would rather have had more A320s. Does anybody really think all of the order will be taken up considering SU has not had the type?

In case of Rosavia they've lost everybody I guess which the numerous changes over the last 15 months,nobody here in Russia knows what's happening exactly and if indeed all will happen as it has been said.

A rather remarkable move this order for so many 737NG. SU, FV and Vladivostok Avia have their fleet build up around A32S. I don't think we'll see the 737NG in SU livery anytime soon, for sake of commonality.

I'm wondering where the 737NG will go then. It's very likely that FV will be stripped completely as its hugely indebted and its 32X fleet goes to SU. The small regional carriers (except for some useful planes of VladivostokAvia and Orenair) will be closed as well and Rosavia will build up several focus cities around Russia. Most likely LED, the black sea area, OVB and the far-east.

Or SU might use the 737NG themselves, which I think would be a ridiculous idea. Or they just want to get a lower price of Airbus

You are correct. That was in 2007? Seems like a long time ago.

There're some rumours that Aeroflot intents to bear a couple of daughter airlines, one for charter flights, another one for low-cost flights. These 50+15 birds could fit into one of those or into both.

In any case, some people seem to be rushing a bit as Wikipedia is already reporting the 65 737NG order under the Aeroflot name.
