When will the Boeing 737NG and A320CEO production cease

Mon Feb 11, 2019 1:19 pm

I noticed that KLM was still expecting delivery of the Boeing 737NG in 2022, so when is the producing going to end for the Next Generation? And the same for the A320? Couldn't find it online.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Production of the A320ceo and 737NG will most likely end when demand for them wanes. As long as they have orders, they'll keep producing them, though I'm sure that Airbus/Boeing would rather customers buy the neo/MAX families and they'll probably push for this.

I think that they are still in production because of problems with the LEAP and GTF. Airlines are ordering the old models to overcome the delivery shortfalls. WIth CFM and PW slowly getting back on target this year, it will only be a matter of time before orders dry up and production is wound down.

However, Boeing has military orders too - so 737 production may still continue until the military orders have been fulfilled.

I heard that the NG would cease production at the end of March. The source was reliable, but don't bet your last dollar on it.

March of what year?

There was a thread just a week or two ago about outstanding NG orders and there's something like 150 of them still to go.

So will it kinda happen like the passenger version of the 767? Over time the 787 Dreamliners took over, and people stopped ordering the passenger 767 so Boeing stopped it.

March this year sounds about right. I saw it recently on a presentation too. I remember it was the earlier part of this year.

Not correct. The 737NG is planned to stop production this year.

There were 88 Unfilled 737NG orders at the end of 2018. I imagine they would not expect many (if nay new orders) so when those are done, that's probably it. Based on the rate from last year, it makes sense they could be done around end of March or so if they want to be.

On the Airbus side, as at the end of January they had the following outstanding ceo orders:

A319 - 10
A320 - 66
A321 - 81

So KLM can't take delivery of any new 737NG's in 2022? So perhaps some second hand from Transavia? They are set to take delivery of B737Max in 2022 (although they haven't been ordered as of yet).

Ah so it was 88. I was going from memory. Thought the 739 total was bigger than 22.

Either way, isn't 88 a lot in the first 3 months of 2019 with all the MAXes mixed in and aren't most of those 739s for DL?

I'm having a hard time believing the entire ceo supply chain will be kept running until 2022. If DL is wanting to stretch delivery out that much, I would imagine Airbus will build them soonest and just store them until delivery.

Is Boeing building the P-8 frames on order and then storing them? Several countries have dozens of P-8s on order (USAF, RAF, RAAF, India, Norway, etc.) with deliveries several years into the future. More orders are inevitable for the P-8 so I wonder if Boeing is going to build extra 737NG frames in anticipation.

Boeing will continue to make the P-8 on a separate line. It is the commercial 737NG that will be phased out. The P-8 frame is a strengthened/bespoke version of the commercial plane’s, it is not just a 737NG with military hardware on board.

KLM will this year take delivery of 4 737-800, nothing has been confirmed beyond these 4 deliveries.

Looking a bit closer at the 737 numbers.

from the earlier post only the 737NGs
737-700C 2
737-800 32
737-900ER 22
BBJ 1
BBJ2 2

total: 59

January 2019 737NG deliveries: 13 (unconfirmed)
Currently on flightline: 12

remaining: 34

Tomorrow Boeing will post the January deliveries so we will know the exact numbers at this moment. But if it is just 34 to be built with around 12 to 13 deliveries per month we can calculate that the production will end in April if they won't slow the NG production down gradually. If it turns out to be March they will have to increase the production for NG these next 2 month, I don't see that happening.

But it's should be obvious that 2019 will the last year of the NG production, with the P-8 production going on for as long as necessary.

The last commercial 737NG order was in August 2017, 4 737-900 for Alaska.

As noted, the P-8 is built on a separate line in the building adjacent to the main 737 FALs. This building also handles building up the 737's wings and wing spars.

They can also put in temporary cabin fuel tanks. HA does this with their 717s as they were flown to MIA for overhaul.

To be honest, after removing those dubious deals/bankrupt airlines, we are down to 120 in total. However, until the client or Airbus officially cancels them, currently we still have 157 outstanding.

The 737NG is the basis of several military variants like P-8 that are unlikely to to be switched to the 737Max. As long as the military programs are still in production, it will still be possible for Boeing to offer civilian 737NG's.

No it won’t. It’s been stated several times on this thread. The last 737NG will be delivered in a few months.

So, how will Boeing deliver the P-8's? Special production runs? Or are they different enough to have their own production line and supply chain?

I also thought that this year would be the last for A320neo production, 2020 at the latest. Very little point of low-rate production of an oddball model for years to come. It's possible to produce some end of model-type aircraft and store them for up to a year...like Boeing has done with 747-8 models.

If any CEO's are scheduled for delivery in a few years...they are likely just waiting in the backlog to be upgraded to NEO's or traded in for another model or incentives.

Unlikely, both NG and CEO are build on the same line as MAX and NEO and the shared production is running since years now. I see no problem to go on for years beside a missing backlog.
Looking for example on the Delta A321 order there is no sign for conversion. The will get 2-3 per month for the next 2 years. No need to store something.
I guess Boeing or better CFM would prever a much shallower MAX ramp but the NG NG backlog is drying out too fast.

I really want to go see this. One day there will be a time where we look at NGs the same way people look at MD80s now. I missed the last 747-8i delivery and the last US flight of a 747 classic and both broke my heart. I don't want to miss anything else. How much advance notice do you think we will get of this?

Will we? It's not as if the Maxes will be much different from the NGs externally, and inside they'll be even more similar. I find it hard to get excited by the much different 737 Classics, it's only the Jurassics which to me shout out something different, and historic
it's the bus to stansted (now renamed National Express a6 to ruin my username)

Ryanair usually deliver their 737s nonstop from Seattle to Dublin. A 737 with no passengers, bags, or cargo, but full fuel tanks can do a pretty long ride. As an example PAE-DUB is 4,513 mi, while PAE-AMS is only 4,859 mi.

In this case, if they had to stop, it would likely be in an airport the airline already serves (YYZ for KLM as an example), or an airport of convenience along the route, KEF in Iceland being the most logical on that route, or BGR in Maine if they don't want to have to deal with having to land in Canada.


Or course new plane deliveries are often not "empty" per se. Due to an... interesting... trade loophole both Airbus and Boeing offer a little perk service to customers overseas where the customer (or someone in the Customer's ear) can request certain high value items that would otherwise be cost prohibitive or unavailable due to high tariffs, taxes, and/or regulations in said delivery country. I'm sure Ryanair takes full advantage of this service. I suggest maybe looking up the price drop of say a XBox in Ireland every time a new 737 is delivered to FR. ;)


Thanks Stitch and Polot RE: the P-8 question.


Do you have more info about this? I'm really confused as to how a new FR delivery can impact the price of a game console made in Asia

No VAT tax. When my brother, who was working in London at the time, invited my wife and me to visit him he had me bring him a Canon camera and lenses. It was several hundred dollars cheaper than he could get in England. But if Ryanair personnel try and sell the stuff I would think they could get in trouble.

I noticed that KLM was still expecting delivery of the Boeing 737NG in 2022, so when is the producing going to end for the Next Generation? And the same for the A320? Couldn't find it online.

Production of the A320ceo and 737NG will most likely end when demand for them wanes. As long as they have orders, they'll keep producing them, though I'm sure that Airbus/Boeing would rather customers buy the neo/MAX families and they'll probably push for this.


Not correct. The 737NG is planned to stop production this year.

It may be stopping this year - but that's because there aren't enough orders to justify keeping the production line open.

No. It IS stopping this year because Boeing made a decision to only offer the MAX and no longer offer the NG. Also, they are built on the same production line. You guys are guessing but it’s not correct information.

So, as you seem to possess the right information, when will the last P8 be produced, no production next year?

The P-8 will continue to be produced long after the last civil NG is delivered later this year.

See this press release for the P-8 orders placed 2 months ago, from this order the 1st P-8 for Norway will be delivered in 2021.

Boeing keeps on building the P-8 and is still booking new orders. The last civil 737NG order is already a couple years old.

I do know that and that is why saying that 737NG production will cease this year is just plain stupid.

To make it simple, commercial airline 737NG's will end this year, Military 737 derivitives will continue as long as the Government keeps ordering them.

WoodysAeroimag: there are less than 30 NG's left to assemble. The last one is scheduled for May 3rd R/O out of final assembly.

Don’t be dumb man, P-8 is a military derivative that all it shares with the NG is the basic fuselage and main wing portion. Otherwise it’s a completely different aircraft, even the engines have more powerful generators. When people refer to 737NG production they are clearly talking about civil aircraft. Come on now.
