Let Embraer handle he 70-150 seat market instead. It's not like B737MAX7 sell well recently.
The 737 has been selling quite well recently.
For the last decade, orders have exceeded deliveries every single year except 2009 (recession), with a total of 7384 orders to 4588 deliveries. Last year it was 180 more orders than deliveries. The year before it was nearly 300.
Put another way, over a period where the production rate gradually increased from 31.5 per month to 52 per month with an average of 38.2, the average order intake has been 61.5 aircraft per month.
Of course, the A320 is selling even better. Yet regardless of whether the 737's are selling on their own merits, based on low pricing, or simply because Airbus can't build A320NEO's quickly enough, the 737 is still in strong demand. Since the recent order history exceeds the market forecasts, it appears we are due for a slowdown in orders, but barring a major, sustained, global airline downturn, a radical shift in the order balance between the 737 and the A320, or the C919 significantly exceeding expectations, it appears to me there is no urgency yet to replace the 737.
Absolutely. We are talking about Boeing here, they wouldn't launch a 787-3 replica after what it went through. Boeing never launched a program that failed to sell (but they launched variants that didn't sell, different story) It was just me arguing against a 797 that would have a 788 fuselage even though it would be more optimized than the 787-3.
This significantly helps clarify your prior post. Thank you.
