Interesting order. Are the NG-slots left, filled in order for Boeing to agree to this?
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Depends on how many NG production slots Boeing needs to cover before MAX production ramps up. AR has been a loyal 737 operator since 1969 and with the airline mulling over the future of its long haul fleet - right now based on the 330-200, but clearly more capacity and range are needed - I expect some news on that front over the next 18 months. While this long haul order is for Airbus to lose, Boeing must be eyeing it too.
