Boeing 737NG Production/Delivery Thread - 2019

Fri Jan 18, 2019 7:01 pm

Hi all, it seems there isn’t a thread to track the production and delivery of the 737NG, and I thought it would be interesting to follow this as the type approaches the end of its civil production run.

Looking at the numbers below, the end of the 737NG alone can’t be too far off now, excluding ongoing production of the P-8. It will be interesting to see what the backlog shrinks to by the end of this year.

—————

I’m sure Ryanair had their last 2 800s delivered a few weeks ago?! The next batch will be MAXs in March. Can anyone correct me if I’m wrong.

The unidentified 737-800s backlog are mainly Chinese, with China Eastern (MU) and subsidiaries should be behind the largest part of the 29 orders.

But there are some other non Chinese airlines that will also take delivery of new 737-800s in 2019

Pobeda (DP) should take 6 of them through Sberbank Leasing.

KLM (KL) will take delivery of 4 new 737-800s later this year. They will be leased, but they haven't disclosed the lessor.

Transavia (HV)takes delivery of 2 737-800s this month, one arrived in Amsterdam today, the 2nd will follow on the 26th.

The family is still showing on the Boeing Price List and I expect suppliers can still provide the necessary parts not shared with the MAX airframe to complete new-builds. There are also the 737-800ERXs being built for modification into the P-8.

That being said, it's been some 18 months since the last non-military 737NG order so I expect Boeing did a "last call" around 2017 to fill up any non-MAX slots.

Ty for the info Stitch. I was only asking if an airline operating a relatively young fleet of NG'S wanted a small top off order especially if Boeing was giving a good end of line price.

Since there are only a handful of 737NGs left to be delivered, does anybody know when the last frame is going to be delivered?

Something else noteworthy about the backlog as of the end of January of 93 aircraft, just over half of it is for P-8s at 47.

I wonder if all 46 of the other aircraft will actually be delivered? From the A320ceo thread we know that frame has some phantom orders still sitting on the order book. I wonder if the 737NG likewise has some orders which won’t be fulfilled. Obviously the 737-900s for Alaska and Delta seem a safe bet, but what of the others?
  • The US Navy 737-700Cs? The rest of the order has been delivered over quite a period of time: 3 in 2000, 1 in 2001, 2 in 2002, 2 in 2004, 1 in 2006, 2 in 2010, 1 in 2011, 2 in 2014 and 1 in 2016. Will the remaining two be delivered this year?
  • The BOC 737-800s? They’ve been taking them fairy steadily over the past few years, but it has now been 5 months since the last delivery.
  • The inidentified 737-800s - are there any phantom orders in there I wonder?
  • The three BBJs?

This leads to the inevitable question: excluding the P-8, who will end up taking the last 737NG.

15 P8s out of a planned 122. Also, about 100 P3s are still flying. The P8 program has a ways to go.

Why is the P-8 included in these lists?
Aren't they made on a separate line?
They really have no connection to the passenger line . Can we have to separate backlogs as P-8 is going into the future passenger variants ending very soon.

Because I decided I wanted to include them, since they are a (modified) member of the 737NG family. I have been sure to break the numbers out so it is clear what the non-P-8 backlog is.

Once the last of the civil models are delivered, then this thread can become the P-8 thread and migrate to the military forum.

Could NG production increase again now that the MAX is probably grounded into 2020?

Would airlines support receiving an older model for the time being, at a considerable discount?

The BBJ and 2x BBJ2s you may as well remove off the list as they're already long gone. It's the Dutch Govt one and the 2 for Poland which are all flew away a long time ago. The 24 NGs are 2 for Skymark (BOC), 4 for KLM (Bocomm), 4 for Pobeda (SB Leasing), 12 for CES group. The remaining 2 are not known to me at the moment. I believe there's been a late change to the firing order which is why I can't be certain yet which frame will be the last one but it'll be approx ln 7600 give or take a couple of frames either side. Ln 7598 or 7603 are the likely candidates imo but this is just an educated guess and shouldn't be copy and pasted to twitter feeds as fact.

Unlikely since the supply chain would have adjusted itself to the lower production rate of NG-specific parts.

Who said it's probably grounded into 2020? I heard 3 to 6 months. Is there new information that forces a longer grounding?

I don't know either way but there isn't a certainty that this software fix will un-ground. Could just be the first step? Possible certification or something?

The 787 was grounded about 3 months and the DC10 was shorter at only 6 weeks.

Who knows really. But 3 to 6 months does seem on the high side, especially as Boeing are pumping out over 50 per month and will want to solve as quick as possible.

The technical fix isn't the only problem. Boeing's headache will be getting the fix certified from Gov't
safety agencies across the globe and getting the groundings lifted.

This is where the political theater kicks in. Which country will be the first to lift their groundings?

Is it possible for Boeing to build a 737-600 upon request and assuming there is a lot of money involved?

I guess? Not sure where the NG passenger model supplier production is at.

But seriously, nobody would order a 737-600 (or an A318-100ceo, for that matter) with the A220 available.

Maybe that argument for be applied to the A318, but the 737-600 has commonality with the other NG models (right?) so in a hypothetical situation if you wanted a tiny 737NG and already had an NG pilot at your disposal who flew a -700, -800, or -900, it should potentially work.

You'd buy a 737-700 or 737-800, as the two major 737-600 customers (SAS and WestJet) did.

Anyway, this is the Production/Delivery thread and this speculation is off-topic for it. :biggrin: :wave:

There were 12 deliveries in March, including 2 P-8s:

  • Alaska Airlines - 1x 737-900ER
  • Bank of Communications Leasing - 2x 737-800
  • China Eastern Airlines - 3x 737-800
  • Delta Air Lines - 2x 737-900ER
  • Sberbank Leasing - 2x 737-800
  • Australia P-8 - 1x 737-800A/P-8
  • United Kingdom P-8 - 1x 737-800A/P-8

There were 3 orders in March:

  • Unidentified Customer - 3x BBJ

Given the previous E-7 AEW&C orders were recorded as 737-700W, it seems likely that this isn’t part of the UK order for 5 E-7s announced on the 22nd of March, but time will tell.

—————
Backlog as of 31 March 2019
737-700 - 2 (+4 BBJ)
  • United States Navy - 2 (737-700C)
  • Business Jet/VIP Customer - 1 (BBJ)
  • Unidentified Customer - 3 (BBJ)

737-800 - 17 (+44 737-800A/P-8, +2 BBJ2)
  • BOC Aviation - 2
  • Unidentified Customer(s) - 15
  • Australia - 3 (737-800A/P-8)
  • Indian Navy - 4 (737-800A/P-8)
  • Norway - 5 (737-800A/P-8)
  • United States Navy - 24 (737-800A/P-8)
  • United Kingdom - 8 (737-800A/P-8)
  • Business Jet/VIP Customer(s) - 2 (BBJ2)

737-900ER - 9
  • Delta Air Lines - 9

Agreed, it does not make sense to book BDS orders as BBJs.

That is a very surprising and unexpected development if these are NGs as the name suggests! 3 in a single order suggests to me it may be a C-40B/C top up perhaps? They won't be C-40As or wedge tails as those are listed as 700C and 700W respectively. My reason for thinking C-40B/C is because the US already has a bunch and would want to keep the fleet the same for familiarity. If it was a new customer I think Boeing would have directed them at their Max BBJ offering.

Indeed, and added to that normally Business Jet customers are recorded as “Business Jet/VIP Customer”. Looking at the report by model series, 112 BBJs are ordered as that, and 9 as U.S. Air Force, so you may be on to something.

There is this article from last year, but that talks of C-40As: https://www.flightglobal.com/news/artic ... an-454181/

You sure that is not US Navy P-8? The first P-8 for UK is still months away.

Boeing’s delivery information is the source for it. I suspect it means it has been delivered to the UK P-8 programme, as opposed to the UK itself.

Boeing has a history of making errors with the P-8 customer data. This is another example.

Interestingly, FlightGlobal is reporting that only 3 of the 5 E-7s for the UK will be new-build aircraft: https://www.flightglobal.com/news/artic ... uy-458127/

As much as it doesn’t fit with previous convention of designating the aircraft 737-700W, the timing of the order for 3 BBJs by an Unidentified Customer does seem to fit with the UK E-7 order.

Any info about L/N 7542 ? customer ?, it seems to be still at the FAL?
The next 737NG, L/N 1547 for Skymark Airlines has already completed her first (B1) flight at May 10th.
