From what I can make out here... It looks like 27 new and 5 options for the 738NG? And might also explain the 2 recent 777 cancellations.

From Reuters:

http://www.reuters.com/finance/stock...A/key-developments/article/2466754

"Jet Airways (India) Limited announced that vide its letter dated October 05, 2007, in addition to the 20 firm orders for B737-800 aircraft, the Company had an option to acquire 10 additional B737-800 aircraft from The Boeing Company (Boeing). The Company has now decided to exercise the option. In 2005, the Company had contracted with Boeing for 13 B777-300ER aircraft. The Company has now agreed with Boeing to replace the last 2 B777-300ER aircraft with 7 B737-800 aircraft. The Company has also been given an option to acquire an additional five B737-800 aircraft. Thus, the Company will be acquiring 17 B737-800 aircraft from Boeing. n addition to the acquisition of the aforementioned aircraft, the Company has agreed to acquire 10 B737-800 aircraft which were contracted in 2005 to be acquired by Jet Lite (India) Limited from Boeing."

That's odd.. Jet Airways just recently returned at least one 738 that belonged to JetLite the other day...


I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

They should seriously evaluate the Boeing 737-900ER as many of their Gulf and Far East routes currently operated with a B738 will be needing a capacity upgrade in a couple of years time and it would be easier and less costlier upgrading to a B739ER versus an A332 !

The B739ER can fly nonstop for up to 6 hours with a full payload of 180-190 passengers in a regional 2 class configuration hence an attractive option.

I know... When Boeing posted Jet Airways order for 17 737's a week or two ago, they also posted the unidentified 777 cancellations. So, I'm assuming the +10 738's are connected to the 777 cancellations. Will probably show up as 27 net 738 orders next week and identify them as the 2 777 cancellations...

This has to be one of the worst written press releases I've ever seen, it reads like a riddle.

Okay, trying to decode this. In 2005 they ordered 13 77W's, then In 2007 they ordered 20 737's with 10 options. Now they have decided to exercise those 10 options and swap 2 77W's for 7 737's with options for 5 more. So as things stand now, they have received 11 77W's and 20 737's. They have firm orders for 17 more 737's and the option of 5 more...... I think.

Does anyone know if Boeing have a lot of free NG production slots before they move over to the MAX? I'm wondering what the ratio of Max vs NG orders is going to be this year. I'd expect it to be similar to the OEO and NEO although I suspect Boeing perhaps have more NG slots available than Airbus had OEO... so will be interesting to see what happens.

I agree... That's why I posted it in its entirety.

If I understand some of Boeing's recent press releases correctly, they plan to start the MAX on a new 3rd line at their Renton facility. This should mean something like 2 NGs per MAX for a while at least, presuming the suppliers can produce parts fast enough for 3 lines and there is sufficient workforce, etc.



Inspiration, move me brightly!
