The 737NG is the basis of several military variants like P-8 that are unlikely to to be switched to the 737Max. As long as the military programs are still in production, it will still be possible for Boeing to offer civilian 737NG's.


No it won’t. It’s been stated several times on this thread. The last 737NG will be delivered in a few months.

I really want to go see this. One day there will be a time where we look at NGs the same way people look at MD80s now. I missed the last 747-8i delivery and the last US flight of a 747 classic and both broke my heart. I don't want to miss anything else. How much advance notice do you think we will get of this?


Will we? It's not as if the Maxes will be much different from the NGs externally, and inside they'll be even more similar. I find it hard to get excited by the much different 737 Classics, it's only the Jurassics which to me shout out something different, and historic
it's the bus to stansted (now renamed National Express a6 to ruin my username)

Slightly off topic, but when an overseas carrier such as KLM, Lion Air, etc. order a 737, what is the routing they use to deliver it? Obviously it can't travel from Seattle to Amsterdam on one fill up.



Just a guess:

SEA-KEF
SEA-BGR
SEA to just about anyone of the Canadian Maritime airports, weather permitting


Delivery flights to Western Europe usually go nonstop out of BFI. With only pilots onboard, SEA-DUB/AMS is possible. Flights to Asia go through HNL most of the time, but sometimes ANC.

A while ago Sky Europe took their 73G non-stop to BTS.

The -800A is the P-8.

Ryanair usually deliver their 737s nonstop from Seattle to Dublin. A 737 with no passengers, bags, or cargo, but full fuel tanks can do a pretty long ride. As an example PAE-DUB is 4,513 mi, while PAE-AMS is only 4,859 mi.

In this case, if they had to stop, it would likely be in an airport the airline already serves (YYZ for KLM as an example), or an airport of convenience along the route, KEF in Iceland being the most logical on that route, or BGR in Maine if they don't want to have to deal with having to land in Canada.


Or course new plane deliveries are often not "empty" per se. Due to an... interesting... trade loophole both Airbus and Boeing offer a little perk service to customers overseas where the customer (or someone in the Customer's ear) can request certain high value items that would otherwise be cost prohibitive or unavailable due to high tariffs, taxes, and/or regulations in said delivery country. I'm sure Ryanair takes full advantage of this service. I suggest maybe looking up the price drop of say a XBox in Ireland every time a new 737 is delivered to FR. ;)


Thanks Stitch and Polot RE: the P-8 question.


Do you have more info about this? I'm really confused as to how a new FR delivery can impact the price of a game console made in Asia

No VAT tax. When my brother, who was working in London at the time, invited my wife and me to visit him he had me bring him a Canon camera and lenses. It was several hundred dollars cheaper than he could get in England. But if Ryanair personnel try and sell the stuff I would think they could get in trouble.
