6000th 737NG Question

With Boeing using the same line numbers for the MAX and NG, and there having been at least 5 MAX produced and some currently being assembled, does anyone know which line number will actually be the 6000th NG? It has to be at least L/N 6005 or higher.

Of the monthly production rate for the A320 right now what percentage of them are of the NEO variety? I would suspect that before this problem is fixed and they can resume deliveries that there will be more than 50 aircraft in the backlog.

It does not matter. It is the 9000th to roll out the door. Wait until you see the stickers on it and if you have questions address them to Boeing. If you are collecting shots of every airframe then put it in the slot for the 9000. Remember they did the 8888th 737 a couple of months ago.
