Am I the only one to think that the 737 is the real big boy in the Boeing models?

On another note... are these 737s going to be "eyebrow-less"?

Cheers! wave

All new 737's are eyebrow-less.

This is pretty huge. 45 airplanes in one order, and the 737 keeps on flying high. It seems that even though the 737 is more expensive up front than the A-320 plenty of airlines must see some truth in the claims of lower cost of operations, and the new system for the sales division seems to be bearing serious fruit.

Congratulations to Boeing and its new sales team.

Is this a new order or one that was previously announced?

That is a new order. They have already taken 9 738s via GECAS in January too for a period of 7-9 years. The growth rates in China are off the charts!

Are eyebrow windows of any use?

Boeing are aiming for 31 737 per month and are considering a second production line. Story via Seattle PI

The 777 and 787 seem to be getting a few orders here and there

Boeing is on a roll.... Airbus must be scratching their heads wondering where are their orders... they need to confirm the EK A350 soon to really catch up with all the Boeing 737, 787, 777 orders.

The Paris Air Show ought to be quite interesting...stay tuned!
