Yes especially with WN plan to only have 150 seats vs 167 available WN type seating on the MAX7.
During the development of the MAX7 WN pushed hard for Boeing for a aircraft that could handle High altitude,Short field and Range performance all its destinations.
This aircraft will give WN the best flexibility to offer more destinations like DEN- Hawaii, BUR/SNA-Hawaii/ east coast.
MDW-Caribbean,South/Central America,BWI-South America and Western Europe(I don’t see that for years to come) without payload restrictions.
While the MAX8 is great the MAX7 offers more flexibility throughout its entire system. I honestly don’t see anymore MAX8 in WN future once the MAX7 started arriving. I think over the next 5-10 years until Boeing builds a brand new 737 replacement aircraft WN is going to to be only taking the MAX7.
Enjoy or Don’t
