Hopefully we will find out who the new customer is at Farnborough. Maybe we have a launch customer for a re-engined version.

In my opinion that's unlikely - what it could be (possibly) is AA taking some more as part of their rumoured cancellation of the lastfew T7s that they've on order?

Yeah, but I couldn't resist. Stranger things have happened.

Possibly, JAL also cancelled some 777s recently, but since that was due to financial woes I wouldn't expect a replacement order.

AA could definitely use the planes to replace MD-80s, but they are really wanting the Y1. I guess that it isn't too unreasonable for Boeing to have given them at least a rough timetable on that and AA wants to take more 737s in the mean time.

It's not officially launched...yet. But it is generally known that AA is one of the airlines eagerly awaiting the Y1.

Hmmmmm here is something out of the box. Maybe its FL ordering more lift they still have 50 planes outstanding, or SY getting ready to expand, or CO? lol

Was there not an Asian carrier (outside of JAL), someone like MH (but not them because they already placed their NB order) but that type of airline that had an RFQ out? I hate it when I can't remember an airline's name. Help me out a.net.

One other thing, 214 orders (and net 177, really does not matter because if you can offset the loss, unlike last year, you know the loss will come back) is a big thing. I know Airbus will make big announcements at the Airshow, so things will end up equaling out. The reason I say it's a big thing is, when compared to YOY reduction in deliveries Boeing announced we are now seeing that there actually was a downturn in the market last year. It has taken a year, and it has been masked by the claims of production ramps, but there has been a slow down in deliveries. Some of it may be the seat issue, but I'm not buying that to be the only reason. The number of new NB orders also supports the justification of increasing rates. Might also be the fire sale of 737NGs to drain the swamp before the big announcement next year.

I believe the leasing company attached to the SU story were expected to order more than 18 or 25 frames.

They're looking at upwards of 200 planes, last I heard. However, they do have plenty of options so it could be a conversion.

The 18 738s might be for WN to "test the waters".

Heh. You realize how large an operation WN is when 18 multimillion dollar aircraft can be considered a test.

The 737 or the 73G? If it's the former, I'm not understanding where you're coming from. If it's the latter, well I'll be really excited to see a 738 in WN colors.

I would expect that WN would convert some of their future 73G orders to 738 to do this, not issue net new orders.

The G. WN getting them means, to me, that they're beginning to define next gen a/c config.

Good point. Perhaps if this pans out, and 18 are for WN, then I think it wouldn't be a stretch to assume Boeing may do Y1 beginning at 150+ seats at standard configurations (165+ for WN). I hope Y1/737RS looks something like this:

Not sure I fully understand your comments. Are you saying that the smallest Y1 size will be 165? I would think WN would still want an aircraft that that is around 150 seats in standard configuration.

28 413X3 : WN flies to a lot of airports that would struggle to take a fully loaded and fully fueled 739, especially in high heat

33 swa4life : a 149 seat plan would not require an extra crew member at all per FAA rules..150+ requires the 4 FA. 149 is the magic number..
34 TSS : My "seat-of-the-pants" feeling is that that's a given... but I could be wrong.
35 zeke : So I take it the the thread title is misleading ? they did not receive a singular "order" but multiple "orders" (3?) with 40+ frames in total.
36 93Sierra : If the 18 are for WN why chose 18? I was led to believe that 25 would be the better option to start with and more WN style. When will we find out?
37 BMI727 : I don't think that Southwest would ever go with 149 in a 73H. I doubt they would want to pay that much for an entryway. I'd say that mid 160s to mid
38 XT6Wagon : You forget that the extra row or two of seats they might fit over 149 cost them an extra FA, extra turn time, less cargo revenue, higher trip costs,
