AIRLINERS.NET CREW
FORUM MODERATOR

With the Farnborough International Airshow 2012 now upon us and the expected announcement of order from Airbus, Boeing, as well as manufacturers like Bombardier, Embraer, ATR, and Sukhoi, we are going to have dedicated threads for Airbus orders, Boeing orders, and one for other manufacturers.

The purpose of these threads is to keep a daily tabulation on any announcements made and to keep seperate each companies announcements. Though we understand there will be split orders, having the official threads should make it a lot easier to track orders for each OEM and make for a good reference for the future of the site.

We do realise that there will / may be major orders announced given recent speculation and some media reports. Therefore, if an order is announced and listed here, by a New A380 / 747-8 Operator, a Major A350 / B787 commitment or by a carrier of regional or strategic importance, it should be entitled to it's own seperate thread. We ask that order be posted here with a link to the relevent thread and a link back to this thread, that way a free and open discussion can be had on these orders without overwhelming the official threads.

This is the dedicated thread for the discussion of Boeing orders. The dedicated threads for Airbus and other manufacturers can be found here:

ALC kicks it off with an order for 75 MAX:

"FARNBOROUGH, United Kingdom, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Air Lease Corporation (NYSE: AL) announced today a firm order for 60 737 MAX 8 and 15 737 MAX 9 airplanes, with reconfirmation rights for 25 additional 737 MAXs. The order, with a list-price value of $7.2 billion, represents the first 737 MAX order by a leasing company."

I wonder who the ALC airplanes are going to go to? Iโ€™d speculate that some could be going to Korean Air since ALC financed the brand new Korean 739ER that is parked on static display at Farnborough this year.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Finally something new for the 767/757 flight deck. I bet this will go well with some airlines who will be forced to keep their 767s in the air longer due to the 787 delays. Should help with training costs for pilots going from the 767 to 787/777.


http://thegazette.com/2012/07/09/roc...ms-with-boeing-on-new-flight-deck/

Will this enable current 767/757s to do GNSS/GPS approaches, I know some 757s have already been upgraded with new displays to help them fly precision approaches.

Yes, the MAX is now 876 frames behind (pending confirmation of the UA order), but Boeing claims to have hundreds and hundreds more commitments (each of which requires a deposit payment, so they are more than just Letters of Intent or Memorandums of Understanding) so...

We're barely halfway through the year, so a bit early to declare failure, IMO. Anyway, let us keep this thread about orders that have happened.

A reminder, this thread is for the discussion of announced orders and that's it. No comparing the number of orders of a Boeing a/c with that of a competing Airbus product, nothing in regards to rumored ordered. If users want to do that, do it in a separate thread. The Moderators have had to gut this thread a few times already because some of the participants are choosing to ignore the requests made of them by the Moderators.

I would hardly call 1,000 orders and commitments anemic.

I would agree - however, my comment focused solely on the order book. Boeing to my knowledge has not released any info showing exactly how many commitments it has and until it does, I don't see how we can count them as orders.

Boeing booked over 500 737NG orders in both 2010 and 2011, so I'm not surprised the orders are lower this year (117 to date) as there are over 2100 737NGs in the backlog with deliveries stretching out to 2016. With the MAX expected to EIS in 2017, we are now approaching the crossover point where an order placed for either a 737NG or a 737MAX would deliver in the same time period.

I do not believe there are very many 737NG positions remaining available until you get out beyond 2017. Boeing will undoubtedly be pushing customers to take the few remaining 737NG positions available to to the start of MAX production, as well as the dwindling number of NGs which will be built after the 737 MAX enters service, as a part of these MAX deals we are seeing. I believe this may be why we see NGs attached to every MAX order.

Once again, this thread is for the discussion of Boeing orders only. Orders for any other manufacturer not named Boeing are off topic in this thread (and vice versa in the Airbus and Other Manufacturers thread). There's a reason why we have THREE dedicated threads for Farnborough 2012, one for Boeing orders, one for Airbus orders, and one for other manufacturers. If the Moderators wanted all orders to be discussed in all three threads, they would have posted one thread to cover all orders instead of manufacturer-specific threads.

18 customers? Then some of these recent orders must have been part of the unnamed customers from earlier in the program, otherwise my numbers don't add up.

Its not a gap, it is the shadow from the horizontal stabilizer. If you look real closely you can see it is a dark grey rather than the dark blue of the water in the background, and that it cuts off part of the cloud.

No doubt some were part of the unnamed, they have to let them out of the bag sooner or later. When Lion firmed the order Boeing listed 15. After Virgin, GECAS, ALC, ALAFCO, Avalon and UA we're at 18 *shrug*. The UA orders appears to be new though, pushing the total orders/commitments to 1200.

Wouldn't be surprised to see these aircraft feature the modification to the livery made for the 787, although not depicted in these renderings. To do so now, so far in advance could take away from the 787 introduction and fuel rumors of the modification becoming the standard livery for the airline. I happen to believe that is what will happen, but it is premature to make the announcement or start repainting now.

Anyway nice order and a big congratulations to Boeing.

The MAX9 will have Hawaii range to spare. That will include Denver. Also IAH/DEN-ANC, EWR/IAD-UK, and other routes that 757s work (and 738s). It can't do everything the 757 can, but it does almost everything. 900ER, not as much, but it can do USA transcons and neartranscons without issue, and UA uses 757s on a lot of domestic routes and to nearlatam.

Quoting r2rho (Reply 39):Then some of these recent orders must have been part of the unnamed customers from earlier in the program, otherwise my numbers don't add up.
No doubt some were part of the unnamed, they have to let them out of the bag sooner or later. When Lion firmed the order Boeing listed 15. After Virgin, GECAS, ALC, ALAFCO, Avalon and UA we're at 18 *shrug*. The UA orders appears to be new though, pushing the total orders/commitments to 1200.

Probably Virgin and ALC were among earlier commitments, since these are now firm.

Makes you wonder who is going to take delivery of number 10,000

I'd say Southwest....

Sounds like a safe bet. 10,000 orders for a modern era airliner is of course a fantastic number. Who would have thought that the B737 would reach that enormous amount of orders. It is a testimony to the success of all involved in producing and operating the airplane.  .

Flyby, not flight demo. The formation flight with the Spitfires was on their departure. They took off, joined up with the Spits, came back and did a low pass, went over to East Midlands and did a low pass over the Darby plant, then went to Shannon to refuel for the flight home.

I am just back from Farnborough. What a disappointment Boeing was again not showing off the 787 (not to talk about the 747-8) during the public days. I don't get it that they don't get it, that the people coming at the weekend are the people buying the tickets to fly on their aircrafts. Thanks Boeing for nothing. Thanks Airbus for a good show.

People are buying tickets to get where they are going, not to fly on their planes. The media and publicity happens during the industry days, and that's what the companies care about.

No kidding. Nobody's not buying a ticket just because Boeing didn't fly their jet on the day they were at an airshow. Joe blow public isn't the one buying 787's, guy.

As QR compelled Boeing to send the plane there, maybe they told Boeing to send it home before the public days. I could see such a decision on QR's part to prevent any accidental damage to the interior that would need to be repaired amd delay delivery.
