Even if they had to give them away for free, it's still a big confidence boost for the MAX. Incredible job by Boeing. And probably a fantastic deal for IAG.

The comments in the British press and on social media are hilarious though. IAG's social media team will be very busy in the next few days with the upcoming shitstorm.

Some reports say IAG does not want to be dependent of only one OEM like in the past but the timing is risky : they is already bad buzz on Twitter ("British Airways prefers good deals over safety"). Also they are negociating post brexit traffic rights.
Surely the discount must be enormous. A round number like this also indicates it is an opportunity deal.
Never trust the obvious

Wonder if Lufthansa Group will follow IAG/BA, Spohr said similar things as Willie Walsh regarding the 737. I can imagine that it would work well with Eurowings or AUA which so far have no NEOs on order.


Lufthansa seems to be primarily waiting on the 797, rather than more A320 sized lift. Although you are right, he did speak confidently on the 737.

ikolkyo, even the B737Max8 (6500km full payload range) and B737Max10 (6100km full payload range), BA can put it on their lower yielding EMEA routes and Americas expansion. So the gcmap I made earlier still applies (though some routes are off of it).

IAG stated in their announcement that the BA aircraft were intended for Gatwick. Baggage is not an issue.

This is 100% due to aircraft delivery rates at Airbus. Seems IAG wants more aircraft sooner.

Which isn't really that unusual for such a large order of narrowbodies. Common assumption is it's a buy one get one free once you hit the three figure point.

Yeah, every single mention of the 737MAX has to be followed by reminders of the two crashes in every press article. You can see it now, every tiny incident in years to come that BA's MAX fleet has will be followed by negative " Lucky escape on horror flight in death jet " type headlines.

You might also all take note that aircraft decisions are made after months and sometimes years of work. It is likely the decision to order the MAX was taken well before any of the recent events.
I do enjoy a spot of flying, especially when it's not in economy!

Yes it’s got to be the best bargain since O’leary’s Post 9/11 deal. IAG probably got to name its own price

I had a similar reaction.

I bet MOL now regrets some of the vulgar comments he made in the past.

They very well could have cost him the second best deal of his lifetime.

I'm sure if MOL places a big order with Boeing for the MAX he'll get a similar deal to what IAG got.

No, they already have LEAPs along with GTFs:

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/artic ... ce-447716/ says:

IAG selected Leap-1A engines for 55 aircraft – the BA and Iberia fleet – but chose the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G for 47 A320neos for Vueling.

Remember the A321XLR still has longer range than the B737Max7 (8700km versus 7100km) but which plane has lower fuel burn?

I think the order count in 2019 (before PAS) is actually at -21. So this should’ve freed op some slots. But, enough about the -NEO. Great news for BA and Boeing.

I wouldn't go into trophy territory for one reason.
There's only two manufacturers and looot of demand.
Nobody is losing much if you ask me. It's the availability that's the key.
Amazing order for Boeing thou especially in this time.

Wow, well this came as a shock. The likely price reductions probably gave IAG incentive to place this LOI.

This order gives me more reason to believe that IAG have their eyes/plan set on a big European aviation shake up. Personally, I think that Vueling will be merged with LEVEL and potentially BA LGW Shorthaul joining the fray. This order facilitates a easy take over of Norwegian later down the line also.

Later on, could we see IAG ordering more of the 737Max to replace A320s across the BA, Iberia and Aer Lingus brands? Perhaps!

Also, could the 737Max ever be containerised?

I think this is less likely, certainly not a 100% replacement. All the IAG airlines have neos on order and there's nothing to suggest they'll be cancelled. IAG airlines also tend to hold onto aircraft for the long term.

With the MASSIVE range of the B737Max7 (7100km full payload), this can fly low volume routes in EMEA as far as DXB, LOS, ACC, GYD, IKA, etc. Basically BA now has a narrow-body for routes that previously required a wide-body.
Example routes: http://www.gcmap.com/mapui?P=LHR-ISB;+L ... PVD;&DU=km

I sense Europe, Middle East, Africa & Mid-West/East Coast USA/Canada expansion.


The order is for MAX 8s and MAX 10s.

You are correct. Mainly Vueling and Level. Also BA at LGW.

It seems the smallish (all Airbus) Aer Lingus and Iberia won’t get them. Understandably.

Level will go MAX in Europe. Possibly 787 longhaul options?

The neo orders will probably get shifted around. More to EI, IB and BA at LHR.

It’s the MAX for Vueling I’m surprised about, an all A320 operator with a number of neos currently and substantial on order.

I think IAG exactly knew what reactions they would get for announcing this order. It's a clear sign that they are not just confident that Boeing will get their act together with the MAX, but that they are standing behind them 100%

It's probably only a LOI for now because it's not certified yet, but I have no doubt they will firm it soon after the MAX starts flying again.

I can see the neos orders being rejigged internally to different airlines. With more focus on IB and EI and BA at LHR with less to VY. We will see I suppose. Wonder if Vueling in the long run will completely switch? A320 to 737. Has been done by others before. Who knows but interesting to see how this pans out. Still around 4 years out from first delivery.

Interesting observation. IAG can be considered as a power house, and by adding a lot of planes to the already crowded LCC market in Europe, something has to fail.

It is interesting that the LOI does not mention a single 'MAX' word. B737-8 & B737-10 without MAX. Does that gives a signal that Boeing is really considering to drop MAX and rename the program/aircraft?

Going back 5-10 years this was definitely the case, but the 737MAX has been different - IMHO Boeing oversold the MAX to leasing companies to get overall sales numbers up (you might say they were coming from behind...), and the effect on MAX lease rates has been pretty dramatic. This will definitely put some downward pressure on values.

Or are those still legally bound ti 9W until a bankruptcy judge voids the sales contract with Boeing?

How much money is Boeing paying IAG that they have agreed to take these planes?

One thing is certain I will not board an IAG jet in the future as there is high propability to end up travelling with the Max.

If you think this is how these things work you have no clue about public perceptions. Right now Max is a disaster in every way possible and Boeing would do their darndest to get even some positive news. It's very clear they will sell the Max at huge discount.

Why are people so obsessed by containers on single aisle aircraft. Get over it.
Does Ryanair have issues with containers?

Do you know how expensive it is to carry a lot of baggage in Europe?

Damn! Please stop this madness about containers on short haul flights in Europe.

I think the question was asked because BAs T5 has an infrastructure which can only work with container loading. Hand loading would require a lot of changes. I may be wrong.

You would be surprised by how expensive 737 MAX are.

In addition the guys in Seattle are quite disciplined managing the backlog thus protecting 737's value in the long run.


If you think this is how these things work you have no clue about public perceptions. Right now Max is a disaster in every way possible and Boeing would do their darndest to get even some positive news. It's very clear they will sell the Max at huge discount.

People already said the same thing about huge discounts for every major MAX order long before the 2 crashes...

It could be a great tool for IB to recover a lot of Africa flights and MAD still has tons of capacity.

Also IB makes quite a bit from their MRO so diversifying into Boeing will help them out by servicing plenty of other airlines. Hell, if they run a big enough scale they could end up running MX for UX.

How much money is Boeing paying IAG that they have agreed to take these planes?

One thing is certain I will not board an IAG jet in the future as there is high propability to end up travelling with the Max.



...instantly raising the mean IQ of said flight.
Get over it please. Problem, though tragic indeed, was identified and corrected.
