Nice, thanks for the update. Do you know when they are due for delivery? I really hope it will be as good in real life as on the pictures.

oykie, no dates finalised yet. The FlyDubai will be doing a bunch of testing under a fixed N-reg for some time before delivery.

Do you have associated line numbers? If so, are any of these aircraft currently in production stage? IF SO, then maybe we can figure out a timeline!

The two CO aircraft are probably one of the 3 that are due for delivery Q12011...theres another 737-800 due Q32011 as well.

I do but this info is considered highly proprietary by Boeing and they don't like them being released in public months before they're due so if you don't mind I'd rather keep that info 'off radar' for now. I will say that the FlyDubai should be popping out on the flight line at RNT very soon as it's ln 3356. First flight is planned for mid August and under normal circumstances I would expect it to deliver at the end of August, but like I said in my opening post, it's planned to be doing testing under an experimental N-reg so it could be weeks/months before it finally hands over to FlyDubai.

From the ln's quoted and the current monthly production rates, you should see them on the ramp at RNT/BFI in December.

Wow, these 738's will then be an even bigger upgrade over the 734's they have now. They look REALLY tired.

No, BSI will only be available on new builds. Apparently it is costs prohibitive to retrofit older 737s with the new interior. This will for sure affect the resale values of these aircrafts.

One has to wonder if the whole "no retrofit" thing isn´t just a strategy to keep new 737s very desirable....

Malaysia Airlines' 9M-MXA is expected to be delivered in October 2010 (that's 3 months away!). MH will received the second B738 (9M-MXB) with the new Boeing Sky interior in December 2010. 33 more B738s will be delivered to MH from 2012 until 2014.

Thank's for the answer. It seems like the interior will be delivered on time according to the dates set by Boeing. Are these planes fully fitted with the areodynamic tweaks and CFM56-7B Evolution engine? They are supposed to give a combined 2% better performance over the excisting 737NG.

I thought it was actually possible, bit so expencive, that it is believed no airline would do this. Could be wrong though.

If it is cheaper for them to get some 737s with the older interior they will probably do that... how many do they have on order?

Very much all new. Overhead bins are pivot-style, like on the 777. Lighting goes LED, and much of it a cool blue (you know, the kind that scientific research has shown prevents you from sleeping? Yeah, THAT color). All new PSU's, which look very sharp in photos. If you're interested, you might consider going to... wait for it... BOEING'S website and looking at the photos for yourself.

No, Boeing does not have three interiors. Currently, only one is in production, and that's the signature. Classic hasn't been produced for years. Why count it? They had hat racks in the 60's, I'm not about to count that either...

I highly doubt it. Considering that the Sky Interior is a deletable option for those airlines who are already existing customers, I fully expect that the FR's and WN's of the world will minimize cost and stick with what they've got.
Do you really expect Ryanair to charge for lavatories on one hand, yet allow nicer cabins on the other? Lol, I wish.

Small correction here. They all shuffle down a position from #2 as the 2nd one is also for FlyDubai A6-FDK.

Will MH install PTVs as well? They are competing with the likes of GA who will?

I wish QF would have them installed on their upcoming 738 deliveries I belive they hae thirty or so still to come however I doubt it

It was communicated to the local enthusiasts that MH's 35 new B738s will have 2 configurations:

- 20 B737-8H6s. Rego will be MXx series, with PTV on all seats for longer-range flights.
- 15 B737-8H6s. Rego will be MSx series, without PTV for shorter flights.

Seat configuration is still undisclosed, but it is rumoured to be 16J/144Y.

A CO 737 has been parked at the Boeing military ramp at the south end of KBFI for many weeks...I think this was doing engine testing and may well still be here for what you're talking about.

Tom.


25 LN-MOW : CO has 9 a/c parked at RNT and BFI. They are all waiting for delayed delivery of seats ...
26 LN-MOW : This would most likely be LN-DYF, due for delivery in the beginning of December.
