Aeromexico have finally placed their aircraft order with Boeing... And a very nice one!
"(Reuters) - Mexico's largest airline Aeromexico on Wednesday placed an $11 billion order with Boeing (BA.N), in what the company said was the biggest aircraft investment by a Mexican airline in the country's history.
The order is for 90 737-8 planes and 10 Dreamliners, Aeromexico (AEROMEX.MX) said in a statement.
Aeromexico, which went public last year, said the Dreamliners will begin arriving in the summer of 2013 and the 737-8 aircraft will be delivered starting in 2018"

Good news for AM and Mexican aviation; are those 738 orders for the current 738 or the MAX, because it seems that first delivery falls very close to the EIS of the Max, which suggests (if the are the current model) that they'll be obsolete fairly soon after delivery.
Are all 90 firm, or does AM have the ability to convert at least some to MAX (or MEX?!) model.
Quoting yellowtail (Reply 1): ....do we know the mix (if any) of 788/9 and or if they took any 78-10 options?
If they're getting them starting in 2013 they have to be 787-8s, receiving them so soon makes me wonder if some of them are the overweight aicraft that were previously supposed to be delivered to other carriers.

This is great news! Felicitamos to AM!
The 762ERs do need to go.They are getting elderly and can't be fuel efficient at all for any of the routes they are flying.
I think some of the 90 MAX orders will be for the 737-7 as well as the 737-8. I can't see AM replacing the entire 73G/73Hs with all 737-8s! That doesn't make since. They need to be able to adjust capacity according to demand which they can't do with all 737-8s. I think a third of the order will be for 737-7s (30ish), 737-8s (50ish), and possibly 737-9s (10). I do think AM needs to have an a/c with a bit more capacity than the 737-8 along with the range.

Quoting Hmelawyer (Reply 8): But as someone else has mentioned, WSJ also has them starting to deliver in summer 2013 which is impossible if they are 789. Either the EIS is wrong or the type is wrong in the story.
Is it not possible they are receiving their 787-8's they already have on order in 2013 and the 9's will already come later. As we aviation enthusiasts see far to often, a journalist might not know the difference between -8's or -9's and simply heard they are receiving 787's next year.

Exactly what I was thinking. The 2013 deliveries are for the previous order.

The press release clarifies a few points raised above:
The commitment by Mexico’s largest airline includes up to 90 737 MAX 8s and 9s and ten 787s, worth $10.8 billion at average list price when all aircraft are firmed. Boeing looks forward to working with Aeroméxico to finalize the details, at which time the airplanes will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website as a firm order.
Quoting kaitak (Reply 2): are those 738 orders for the current 738 or the MAX
The presser consistently says 787 but does not give a model.
Quoting STT757 (Reply 5): If they're getting them starting in 2013 they have to be 787-8s, receiving them so soon makes me wonder if some of them are the overweight aicraft that were previously supposed to be delivered to other carriers.
The presser didn't give a date.
In any case, ANA and JAL have said even the early 787s are a huge leap over the 767.
Quoting na (Reply 4): Looks like they want to replace all 767s and 777s rather soon.
Those 777's aren't old at all... maybe a few from the 90's? I would sell them to someone like UA or DL or something, could come in handy for someone like UA or DL in this case. The 762's are old.. those have to go along with US'a 762's...
