737MAX Storage, Where are they?

Tue Oct 01, 2019 4:31 pm

I’d be interested in knowing where all the MAX Operators have stored their MAX’s, of the top of my head, below is a few places I know of which have some stores.

- Southwest, VCV
- FlyDubai, DWC
- Thomson, MAN + Others
- Icelandair, currently at KEF but being ferried to TLS
- Norwegian, scattered throughout their Scandinavian bases.

Can we add any more to the list, or even update them?

United's just moved to GYR within the last month or so; previously they'd been at IAH and one other hub (LAX maybe? Not 100% sure).

I must applaud you for correctly using B39M.

Boeing has undelivered MAXes in every nook and cranny where they can possibly stuff planes. RNT, BFI, and PAE all have their share, and they've taken over a couple of big parking lots at BFI.

(sarcasm on)What? Eight posts already at no one has closed and locked this thread, telling everyone to post it only in the ten trillion page-long thread where every single issue about the MAX?(sarcasm off)

Truthfully, there were a lot of legitimate discussions about the MAX that were started, but all got put into the original unmanageably long thread. And even though the MAX has been grounded for a very long time, I haven't seen any new (or old, for that matter) threads on it for a while. I have wanted to ask questions, but it has struck me as a "not permitted" category. That is my subjective opinion, and no one else's. My one and only rant here, as everything else at a.net has been working VERY well.

Having said that, I am hopeful these planes have been stored carefully - once they are re-certified, that's a LOT of work inspecting every single one of them before they return to service!

I believe two from TUI are stored at Amsterdam Schiphol, next to a Boeing 777 from Jet Airways, and at least four from TUI are stored at Brussels Zaventem.

There were an addtional 3 that landed a couple weeks ago that I saw on the radar while working in the tower. They must be storing all of them in MZJ eventually.

I'm pretty sure that UA had some parked at both Houston airports (IAH and HOU). The ones at HOU were parked on runway 17/35 as well as some spots along the west side of the field. They were to be ferried out to Goodyear so I'm not sure if any are still in Houston now.

Gol have them stored at their maintenance center ramp at CNF.
I wonder when people will understand:
Embraer 190 or simply E190, not ERJ-190. E-Jets are NOT ERJs!
Boeing 747-8, not Boeing 747-800. Same goes for 787.
Airbus A320, not Airbus 320.
Airbii does not exist.

Has AS accepted delivery of their 737MAXes? I know they were grounded before AS accepted their first one, so are these just Boeing’s 737MAXes that are destined for AS?

Lol, that’s funny.

I flew into SEA a few weeks ago, and BFI parking lots were FULL of MAXs. It was pretty wild. 40, maybe 50 of them?
And then to think it was only maybe 1.5 months of production!

Article in Aviation Week today quotes a Southwest employee estimating it taking
200 man hours per plane to bring their Max's back to life. Multiply that by 350

Last week two of Sunwing were ferried YHM - YMX and YYZ - YMX. One is left at YHM (Royalton). I'm wondering about YMX - not a very pleasant place for the winter. Expected something more warm and dry.. Sunwing has taken their MAX out of the schedule for the coming winter schedule.

Icelandair have actually faced some issues in getting them to Toulouse. First the Irish and UK weren't sure about having them fly in their airspace. Then once that was sorted and they were ready to go the French requested the flightplans to be altered so they wouldn't fly over populated areas.

Thai Lion Air B737MAX-9 HS-LSI is now stored at SZB, looking very grim due to tropical climate. Not the best place to store aircraft.

Lion Air B737MAX 8 are stored at various airport in Indonesia. Here are two at Bali.

Garuda Indonesia stored their sole MAX at CGK I believe.

Silk Air sent theirs to Alice Springs Airport, Australia recently. News article on their arrival at ASP.

There is a bunch of Oman Air MAX's in Muscat.

Turkish Airlines has a number stored at Istanbul International.

The Spicejet fleet seems scattered all over India.

The Lion Air planes I have seen all over Indonesia and Malaysia, they seem to move every now and then. The two in Bali are gone now.

Lion Air MAX fleet storage is only restricted to airports in Indonesia. Only one MAX9 for Thai Lion Air is stored at SZB Malaysia. It has not moved since March grounding.
