Boeing, UA announce order: 150 737's (incl 100 MAX)

Thu Jul 12, 2012 2:02 pm

There was speculation earlier in the week, and it seems like Boeing and UA did not go out of their way to hide the fact that there will be a 737 MAX announcement.

Looks official . Congrats UA and Boeing. Wise choice UA!

CHICAGO, July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced today an order by United Continental Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: UAL) and its wholly owned subsidiary, United Air Lines, Inc., for 150 737 airplanes, including 100 of the new 737 MAX 9. United, the world's largest airline by traffic, is the latest carrier to choose the newest member of the 737 family, which today eclipsed 10,000 orders overall.

The deal, worth $14.7 billion at list prices, also includes 50 Next Generation 737-900ERs (Extended-Range).


So 100 MAX and 50 737-900ER's. Nice order.

UA is refurbishing them, so they look to be staying with the fleet for some time.

Looks like they've decided on the MAX-9 and the 900ER so probably going nowhere fast

When are the expected delivery dates for the 737-900 ER's? Are they going to be used for aircraft replacement or for growth? I wonder why the did not order any 737-800's or the 7378 MAX considering that they have hundreds of them in the fleet.

It's worth noting that even before this order, United still had 115 737NGs on order, assuming Wikipedia is accurate. Adding this order to the total, means United now has 340 airplanes on order, including 75 widebodies.

Unlikely, as the 737-9 is about 500nm short of the 757-200. However, what this will allow UA to do is retire all but their newest 757-200s, which can then be moved exclusively to TATL services.

Where do these stats come from? Delta still carries more passengers per BTS stats than the combined UA/CO. What am I missing?

UA has:

25 B787-800 (no engine selected, UA order)

50 B737-900ER (new order)
38 B737-700 (ex CO order)
9 B737-900ER (ex CO order)

That totals up to 272 frames on order, out of which 75 wide-bodies, and 197 NB. Am I missing anything? Source is boeing.com's O/D site (except for the 25 A350's of course and the recent order announcement.)

Possible benefit to G4, who in other threads here have been looking for an Airbus fleet person, a glut of A-320's and A-319's will soon be available at bargain prices and bigger carriers add MAX's and NEO's, trade in your 320's now or be shocked with trade in value later down the road, not too long from now.

I think you mean all but their newest, not oldest. Most of the newest 757s in the fleet are PMCO and they are all ETOPS.

Traffic may refer to RPM's. Perhaps UA is larger in that metric.

Also, as for the 319/320 fleets, this would appear to signal they are either staying around, or UA is significantly upgauging the ML fleet. The 319 is down at 120 or so seats and the 320's are around 140. Whereas UA's current 739's are at 173 seats. Not exactly a replacement order, but could be a signal toward the general direction of upsizing the domestic fleet.

You are miscounting the number of 787s they have on order. they have 50: 36 787-8s (25 exUA order, 11 exCO order) and 14 787-9s (all exCO orders). Together with the 25 A350s that is 75 widebodies on order. I'll leave it to someone else to figure out the 737s.

Quoting DeltaL1011man (Reply 18):

They haven't officially picked an engine for the 25 exUA 787s. They did go ahead and confirm that they were getting the Trent on the A350, not that they currently had and have a choice.

No they have not, only for the A350's. Given that the other first 25 will all be GE powered, I would presume that GE will get the other 25 UA ordered 787's. It would not make sense to have both Trent and GE

So the correct numbers should be:
Orders
25 350-900
11 787-9
36 787-8
100 737-9MAX
59 737-900ER
38 737NG (Can be converted to any NG 737 model)

Options
50 350 (Can be converted to any 350 model)
75 787 (Can be converted to any 787 model)
64 737NG (Can be converted to any NG 737 model)
42 320 Series (yes folks this is still on the books)

I think I am missing a few aircraft as UAs release says that they will have 272 new aircraft coming online as of 2022. Its also worth noting that UAs order took Boeing over the 10,000 mark for 737 sales.

Quoting LuisKMIA (Reply 1):

I don't think that this order will replace many (if any) of the 319/320 fleet...the 739 is a little to large of an aircraft and quite frankly most of the 319/320 fleet are no where near retirement age. This order should replace the older (domestic) 752s and maybe some of the older 320's....I'm hoping that some of this order is for growth as well.

I wonder what routes would UA assign the new 737 MAX 9's to. My guess (for now): ORD to US West Coast at minimum, and maybe the 737 MAX 9 may have enough engine thrust to fly longer routes out of DEN, too.

The MAX should be able to do US transcon, ORD-West Coast, DEN-East Coast and Cali-Hawaii routes without to much trouble....they have roughly 500 miles more range than the existing 737-900ERs do.

Is this the largest UA order since 1989 ?

United Airlines Wednesday unveiled a $15.74 billion order for 180 Boeing narrow-body jets and options on 190 more, a purchase intended to modernize its fleet and put the carrier back on a growth track.

United's order included 120 firm orders for twin-engine 737s, with options on 130 more. Deliveries are scheduled for July, 1991, through July, 1995, on firm orders, with optional orders, if exercised, stretching through December, 1998.

The p.s. refurbishment will be completed in 2013... by 2020, another move will be required. I think a few of the MAX 9s on order will indeed replace the p.s. frames, some of which will be rather aged by then.

Thu Jul 12, 2012 4:21 pm

Really nice order. 737-900ER and A321 have always been my favorite planes. I will admit, I thought the A321NEO would eat the lunch of the 739MAX, as by most accounts, it is the more capable aircraft of the two. It is encouraging that Boeing is working so hard to keep this plane relevant. The A321NEO and 739MAX will only continue to push both manufacturers to make incremental improvements.

I did not see United ordering 100 of the 9MAX, despite Continentals affinity for the 739/739ER. The 9Max is becoming the unexpected breakout model for the MAX family. What a pleasant surprise this order was.

Perhaps we can put an end to the Lionized 739/9ER/9MAX claims. UA/Continental has surpased them in total orders for these models.

No options though, just strickly firm orders. Interesting.

The airline will take delivery of the jets between 2013 and 2022. The deal also includes an undisclosed number of options for additional aircraft."

There are options, only they did not disclosed how many and of what kind.

Thanks for pointing that one out to me. I didn't read that article, though I did read a few others. If that info was included in those, then I missed it! Need to work on my reading comprehension!!

Interestingly, UA has already announced that the new/additional 50 737-900ERs will replace s-UA 757-200s. From what I recall of the merger agreement with the two pilots groups (UA and CO), as UA replacement aircraft, these 50 -900ERs must be flown by s-UA pilots.

And that creates unnecessary costs. Another merger synergy lost, it would seem.

No they never announced a type for the 788's...they did order trents for the A350's which is probably what you are remembering.

maybe. I thought i saw on here they picked the T1000 and TrentXWB(the only choice they have)

Quoting fpetrutiu (Reply 21):
No they have not, only for the A350's. Given that the other first 25 will all be GE powered, I would presume that GE will get the other 25 UA ordered 787's. It would not make sense to have both Trent and GE

Maybe, it all the depends, I will point to Delta having both GE CF6s and PW4000 on its 767s. UA could have a reason for both GEnx and T1000. (wouldn't hold my breath though. I think Delta will be the only T1000 US airline.)

UA has 155 757's in their fleet so this order of 197 pretty much takes care of all of them, as well as the 735 retirements and a few more.

For n/b a/c, it will give them north of 300 737NG's, 100 737MAX and 152 A319/320 in 2022. Of the 400 737's, about 200 will be with Sky Interior.

I guess there was no truth to the a.net theory we'd see 748i's tagged onto this and the A350 order still stands.

Great order....the 50 737-900ER's was unexpected, but it makes sense.

Futhermore, I wouldn't be surprised if DL goes with the GEnx for later orders, since fuel burn estimates are showing that the GEnx has a 2% advantage over the Trent 1000. Considering that DL switched engines twice on the 767 (GE, then to P&W, then back to GE), it is indeed quite possible that DL may switch engines for a later order. Plus, I wouldn't be surprised if DL made a separate 787-9 order with GEnx engines. DL has historically had a stronger relationship with GE than it has with RR, since GE is one of DL's financers.

but I think by delivery time, UA will have a different livery.

Probably this one:

Deliveries of the the new -900 ERs start next year, and the first MAX-9s start arriving in 2017. The deliveries to to 2022, so a nine-year plan.

Anyone else notice how the gold stripe on the winglet swoops up on the MAX vs how its straight across on the current winglet...

Can we expect a future order for 737 MAX 7/8?..

Quoting poLOT (Reply 19):
They haven't officially picked an engine for the 25 exUA 787s. They did go ahead and confirm that they were getting the Trent on the A350, not that they currently had and have a choice.

The first B-787, a PMCO airplane is being delivered in September, and a total of 4 by the end of this year, and they have GEnx engines. It is reasonable to assume the PMUA order for the B-787 will also have GEnx engines.

Quoting United1 (Reply 23):
No they never announced a type for the 788's...they did order trents for the A350's which is probably what you are remembering.

Since the A-350s only offer the Trent-XWB engine, and no other option, then it is a given the PMUA A-350 order will have the RR engines.

Quoting odwyerpw (Reply 30):
I will admit, I thought the A321NEO would eat the lunch of the 739MAX, as by most accounts, it is the more capable aircraft of the two.

I might point out the B-737-9MAX is outselling the A-321NEO by about 3:1 (321 B-737-9MAXs ordered to about 110 A-321NEOs ordered)

Quoting odwyerpw (Reply 30):
Perhaps we can put an end to the Lionized 739/9ER/9MAX claims. UA/Continental has surpased them in total orders for these models.

Don't forget DL also ordered about 100 B-737-900ERs about a year ago, well before the latest JT order. PMCO also had ordered about 115 B-737-900ERs a few years ago, and UA still has a backlog of about 67 airplanes from that order, in addition to the 50 more ordered today. But JT was the launch customer for both the B-737-900ER and the B-737-9MAX.

Yes, it's good to see the 737-900ER and 737-9 seeing such strong interest from multiple carriers and hopefully this will convince even other carriers to choose the model.
