Did I miss an order for 45 737's yesterday?
|Quoting DAYflyer (Thread starter):|
This year, Boeing already has 98 firm 737 orders, with more in the works. And that does not include the planned order of 70 737s by Ryanair, Europe's biggest low-cost airline, announced earlier this year. A firm contract for that order is pending.
Just yesterday, China Southern Airlines announced it will order 45 737s. And separately, Boeing announced that GE Commercial Aviation has ordered six more 737s that will be leased to Sky Europe, a Central European low-cost airline.

It is also going to be interesting to see where they ramp up the 777 at; must be the 767 line, which is pretty quiet.
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 9):|
Actually, the 777 line has been running a bit slower than need be and Boeing's various breakthroughs are speeding it up via efficiency (especially the moving line). Since there are still 767s coming off the line, they can't just move 777s into the mix. The 777 will actually be moving into a new, smaller line and the 787 is planned to take over its current line.
