There are at least three 737-800s that will be delivered this year, including one which is on the flight line at BFI right now (N536AS). I believe that this trio are not part of the 15 737s (2 -800 and 13 -900ER) ordered last January, but I don't know for sure.

I also wouldn't mind a bet that they will be fairly early orderers of the 737Max.

Almost right.

The -800 deliveries are correct. But there are 3 -900 ERs coming this year. One each in Oct, Nov and Dec.

In 2013 there are 9 -900 ERs coming. Jan-June, August, Oct, Nov. There are 3 options for -800s not yet exercised for Oct-Dec. 3 -400s are scheduled to leave in Oct-Dec.

AS has expressed general interest in the MAX but is waiting to learn more about the aircraft once more details become available.

The delivery for DEC from what I can tell is another 800 with 2 more 900's in Jan 2013.
