Are the civil NG 737 series still available for customers?

Tue Jul 23, 2019 6:43 am

Not sure if Boeing is still building previously
ordered NG aircraft but can new, non military 700/800/900 models still be ordered ?

They are still building them, don't know for how long.
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Skymark of Japan were the final customers of the 737NG, the last -800 JA73AC was delivered late last month.

That’s the answer I was looking for, thanks.
I’m surprised the civil NG line is already wrapped up

It's an outdated aircraft comparing to 737MAX and the A320 series. No surprise that sales dried up and customers went for A320neo and 737MAX.

Isn't there trouble with the last KLM-737? Might that become the last one to roll of the line? There is a thread about it but it was a bit of a long (and messy) read so i'm not sure what's up with the final delivery of that plane.

There was a serious problem with the fuselage, that couldn't be rectified. 737 fuselages are built by Spirit Aerosystems and delivered to Boeing by freight train. It isn't clear whether Spirit delivered a fuselage with the holes for wing mounting drilled in the wrong places, or whether Boeing assembly workers drilled holes in the wrong place. Either way, when the time came to fit the wings, they couldn't be attached to the fuselage. Boeing has ordered a replacement 737-800 fuselage from Spirit, and presumably all the other components will be stored until it arrived, and then assembly will start again. Current estimate for fuselage delivery, aircraft assembly and testing allows for entry into service at the end of this year. This presumably will be the last standard 737NG passenger plane to roll off the line. There are a handful of NG-based BBJs still in the order backlog though, along with 8 738s that are built and destined for China but not due to be delivered until late Q3/early Q4.
Then there's the P8s, but the question was about civil versions
