Outside of the UA narrowbody order, are there any major narrowbody orders coming down the pike? Reason for asking, if the industry has its major demand filled is this not a good time for the airframers to be offering a replacement a/c? I'm not looking to discuss the merits of a product offering, I'm more trying to understand whether the industry is at a order point/period where a new offering might be of greater interest for long term planning.

Consider an airline's current fleet of 100 a/c are less than 10 years old, so they may order a few a/c over the next 10 years but have no plans to procure a major replacement order for 10 to 15 years.

RyanAir will likely pull the trigger on that 200-frame 737 order by year's end, I would imagine. They'll take delivery of all those planes before the "797" arrives, so I imagine they're working Boeing on being able to flip them (especially if Boeing does perform an interim re-engine) to give them the cash to place a co-launch order with Southwest Airlines for the "797".

I think that the first thing that needs to get hashed out is exactly who will be offering what. That said, I expect Farnborough to be a pretty interesting affair as always.

Quoting Stitch (Reply 1):

I would have to guess that at least several airlines would do this with their current orders.



Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

You see that's what I was thinking that major long term fleet plans might be driving Boeing's interest in a replacement over a re-engine. On the side of Airbus, their major customers may be planning for fleet upgrades in the 2025 timeframe and a re-engine fits well with their customer strategies. That might also be the driver for Boeing to increase rates so their backlog is reduced to meet a changeover.
