Extremely underwhelming.

The chevrons and new wingtip devices are cool... but gotta say, what a let-down for we enthusiasts (not that they care).

Good for the airlines that they'll reap financial benefits, though.

Quoting FriscoHeavy (Reply 3):

This is great news. However, I am a little surprised that the plane needs nearly 2 years of flight testing before first delivery, especially since it's a derivative of a plane that has been in business for some 40 or so years.

Anyone see any cable ties on the roll-out airframe?

Quoting WIederling (Reply 24):

If this increases lift significantly before rotation you have a problem.
That lift comes with induced drag that will take away from available thrust for acceleration.

Not to mention if you have too much lift and the aircraft tries to start flying before Vr and then an engine goes out, you may not have enough control authority to remain directional control in a setting of asymmetrical thrust. Obviously, the people at Boeing know how to build airliners so they have some solution for this.

The lift from the wing won't be a problem on takeoff. At zero degrees attitude the wing is not producing as much lift as in flight. When at cruise the airplane has to have a nose up pitch of 2-3 degrees to support its own weight. In the ground it will be lighter on the tires than the NG but not have a risk of lifting off the ground. Above about 80knots the nose wheel steering has almost no impact on directional control. The rudder is in control.

The problems is landing. A higher nose up attitude than the NG results in less weight on wheels which means less friction for the tires during braking. The MAX has new fly by wire spoilers which should help with that problem to get more weight on the tires to allow heavier braking. The NG could outbrake an A320 much of the time. I don't know if that is true with the MAX,
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

The new single-aisle airplane will deliver 20 percent lower fuel use than the first Next-Generation 737s and the lowest operating costs in its class – 8 percent per seat less than the A320neo

Is it perhaps worth pointing out that airlines that assessed both types, and are perhaps a tad more independent, are said to have put the difference at around 2 percent per seat?

That was said before the rumoured issue with the Leap 1B's SFC, and P+W's promise of a 2%-3% PIP on the A320 by 2018.

It will be interesting to watch the flight test programme unfold

How come? Bigger tires, or did you mean as a result of lift?

The problem is lift during landing. The nose down attitude along with the increased spoiler deflection short field performance package gave the 737-800 incredible stopping performance since there was significant weight on the tires. I don't know of any airplane with higher tire pavement loading than the 737-900ER. On the ground the wing did not create much upward lift. The pavement loading on the 737 tended to be quite high. The taller nose gear means that the wing will get lift while on the ground and reduce tire loading and therefore reduce stopping performance. I don't know how stopping distance for the A320neo and 737max will compare. I was not trying to say that one is better than the other, but rather point out that the nose down attitude improved stopping distance and allowed for a smaller lighter nose gear since it was shorter.

That sounds about right. If the difference was 8% per seat the neo would hardly be selling against the MAX. But the opposite is the case.....

Quoting astuteman (Reply 106):

Indeed, the bigger clearance under the wing is a huge advantage for the A320 in several ways. No doubt in the future that advantage will become more and more decisive.

But this is Boeing's day with the roll out of the B737-MAX. A beautiful aircraft that will make tons of money for Boeing and their customers. I hope to be on it as a passenger soon though i still need to exercise some patience for that.

I was hoping those winglets or whatever Boeing is calling them would somehow look better irl than in the renderings, but nope, still ugly. At least they look distinctive and not boring, just ugly.

The rest of the plane looks like a 737. Congrats to Boeing though, hope everything goes smoothly from hereon forward.

Here's a (lone?) vote for the split scimitar wingtips, which appeal to me: I think they are well-shaped, give definition to the wingtip better than other winglets, and remind me, at least, of a hawk's primaries in strong flight. I'm looking forward to seeing them around.

I agree with what one user said up there. The 737 MAX looks very athletic, despite the age of the basic design. The AT winglets, tailcone, bigger engines, the chevrons and taller stance, along with all the angles and curves give it presence and athleticism. I wouldn't change anything about it!

Now, that being said, the A320neo has a much more clean look to it; not boring, rather nice to look at, but not as exciting looking as the MAX with all the details. I'm more excited for the A321neo, which will look great with the large engines.

Never liked the looks of the 737, although the original model with those long engines had a certain stubby charm to it. Agree with others that the nose looks completely out-of-date but the MAX is undoubtedly an improvement compared to the NG. The higher legs and longer tail give the plane a more dynamic and modern appearance.

So it does appear to be a "flat" attitude, fortunately. The appearance of a slight nose up attitude is likely the tow tug, which I've noticed especially with A32Xs being towed around the ramp.

I gotta say I think the aircraft looks far more proportioned to the engines and I love thee new tailcone and winglets. I think the 321NEO will look great too but the 320NEO looks a little comical with its giant engines - maybe when liveried up it will look more seamless. Can only imagine what the 319NEO will look like.

Though they have lost their distinctive flattened bottom edge altgether at the intake, I like their sleekness.

A shame the window line wasn't lifted slightly, but the Sky Interior certainly helps.

But like others have said, the entire plane looks proportional for the first time. That was actually the very first thing I noticed. With the A320NEO, the engines just look too big.

It just isn't a good looking airplane - and that is a scientific fact. Part of it might be the confused and busy paint job, but it lacks a certain aggression. Airtrain 737-700 always looked aggressive as hell with the nose down pitch, winglets, and big ass tail. It looked like a big scorpion about to sting. This to me is bland like a current generation A320 series. Pointy nose or dolphin nose...take your pick.

Now please don't take what I'm about to say as gospel, but I read an Airways Mag article yesterday about the 737 MAX rollout, and the writer suggested that some industry experts are suggesting that Boeing may actually be in the early stages of development for the MoM at this point.

I can't confirm 100% if that's true. I'll include a quote and link:

Quote:
Meanwhile, Airbus’ stretched A321 is what many airlines are now choosing to replace their 757s, with domestic legacies like American and Delta both adding A321s. Many within the industry expect that Boeing is currently developing an enhanced 757-style derivative, what is tentatively called the NMA, or “Next Midsize Aircraft,” likely to be dubbed the 797 once it is officially on the market, entering service no earlier than 2022.

The heck you lecture us on "scientific fact." Truth is, the 737 is a beautiful looking plane! Who cares if it's 50 years old! No one looks at a P-51 or DC-3 and says they're ugly!

Seems from a spotters points of view both the A320NEO and 737 MAX are so boringly similar to the previous generation...I think the changes from the 737 classics to the NG were much bigger...all this fan fare about the roll outs and then..oh meh basically the same

I don't know what the disappointment is all about. Haven't we known these would be the changes all along?

Quoting PEK777 (Reply 134):
It just isn't a good looking airplane - and that is a scientific fact.

Ha! Perfect.

Actually, the difference with this roll-out is how LITTLE fanfare there is.

Yes. I guess some haven't been paying attention.

I like it and it looks little different than I have expected. Certainly, it will be easy to spot B737 Classic and NG vs. Max. It got new legs!

Would love to see a pic of the Jurassic, Classic with and without winglets, New Gen with and without winglets and the Max sorta like they did the Boeing family pic that they did from the 707 to 777 at Boeing field once. Most casual observers besides us in here would hardly tell the differences from the Classic to Max, Jurassic would be easy to tell although!

I think it looks good. The 737 has never been a "looker" but with each revision it has improved. This is the best yet.

Quoting Boeing778X (Reply 140):
The heck you lecture us on "scientific fact." Truth is, the 737 is a beautiful looking plane!

I see...lets laugh at the one making a joke (I hope) about the looks being factually hideous...and you state that it is a universal truth that it is beautiful...    (A joke as well I hope)
