It will be interesting to see how many of these are NEW orders as opposed to conversions, and how many are firm by the end of the week as opposed to MOU's.
Orders flying in very quickly!
More conversions than net orders it seems.
For reference, I just posted this in the 737 MAX 10 thread showing the breakdown of announcements so far:BOC Aviation
10x new MAX 10s (MoU)GECAS
20x conversions to MAX 10 from unspecified MAX variant. (Order)CDB Aviation Lease Finance
6x conversions to MAX 10 from MAX 8, 4x new MAX 10s (MoU)TUI Group
18x conversions to MAX 10 from unspecified MAX variant (Order)Tibet Financial Leasing
20x new MAX 8s and 10s (MoU, breakdown not specified)SpiceJet
20x conversions to MAX 10 from MAX 8, 20x new MAX 10s (MoU)
So on the basis of the 6 orders that have been announced, it is 34 (plus an unspecified number between 1 and 19 from Tibet Financial Leasing) new MAX 10s, and 64 conversions (of which 26 are from MAX 8 and 38 are from an unspecified variant). The 38 conversions from an unspecified variant are firm, the rest are MoUs.
I understood the TUI order like that as well but somehow that doesn't match the information in the last paragraph: "The Group also has 50 options for the 737 MAX and has converted 10 of these to the 737 MAX 10. The Group will take delivery of its first 737 MAX aircraft in January 2018." - from the press release.
So 10 of the MAX 10 orders were previously options?
That would make only 8 conversions from the existing 70 orders. Am I the only one who's confused by that?
I think it's a bit more straightforward than that: 18 of their 70 orders have been converted to be for the MAX 10, and 10 of their 50 options have likewise been converted. So it is 18 firm and 10 options.
