Great News for Boeing. Will be nice to see some new 737 in Russia and the surrounding area.

That much derided B737-900 seems to be getting a lot of orders recently.....

Yes, the 739ER is much more efficient than most people make it out to be. Sure, it's a bit of a runway hog, but it can move a lot of people around at a very low cost.

Russia is well prepared and used to that, most major airports have 3,000m+ runways.

The B737 is always a great seller, but this year it's actually a little behind 2010.
In 2010 it got 486 net orders.
So far this year it has received 310 net orders (unless there are some cancellation for the last week).
That means that with this rate of net orders the B737 should land some 413 frames for the 12 months of 2011.

Now lets see if some MAX's are firmed up.
