I think it's a great idea, a combination of 320neo/321neo to replace the whole 737NG fleet. All -700's, -900's, and the older -800's can go to the scrapper, while the newer -800's can go to Transavia.
Agree. They are a junk paper but in this kind of stuff they tend to be correct. And the Financieel Dagblad which is solid is confident enough to quote them. The FD specifically refers to procurement of A321 and not generic A320 series.

And you can see 737-700 already replaced by E195. So there is just -800 and -900 to replace and for the -900 the A321 is a much better option. Note that KLM has -900 and not -900ER.
Only because of (slightly) better payload capability on the A321? Or are there other reasons? I don’t think there are a lot of differences apart from payload capability between the A321neo and the MAX 10.
