Boeing launches 737 MAX 10 with 240 orders, commitments

Malita Javier | 19 Junio, 2017, 16:16

The manufacturer said it has more than 240 orders and commitments from 10 customers for the narrowbody and began with a string of signings at the show.

Macron landed Monday at the Bourget airfield in an Airbus A400-M military transport plane to launch the aviation showcase, where the latest Boeing and Airbus passenger jets will vie for attention with an F-35 warplane, drones and other and high-tech hardware.

The U.S. company may announce as many as six separate deals for the Max 10, with United Airlines, Indonesia's Lion Mentari Airlines PT and SpiceJet Ltd. of India all said to be looking as placing contracts, according to people familiar with negotiations.

The plane features LEAP-1B engines produced by CFM International, a joint venture between General Electric (GE) Aviation and France's Safran Aircraft Engines.

That could mean that the Max 10 runs a risk of cannibalising sales of the Max 9.

China's Xinhua news agency reported police as saying that the incident took place near Finsbury Park Mosque in Seven Sisters Road. The Finsbury Park Mosque - located in a vibrant, multicultural area of north London - was once closely associated with extremism.

The A320neo range of jets, created to use less fuel than the original and widely-used A320s, have proven popular and are competing with Boeing's 737 Max series in the short to mid-range market.

The 737 competes with the Airbus A320neo family of jets that the European manufacturer introduced a year ago, which has had about 4,600 orders.

The stretch will be achieved by adding a 40-inch segment in front of the plane's wings, and a 26-inch plug behind them, with the wings themselves slightly modified to reduce drag at lower speeds.

In two decades as the sales boss at Airbus SE, John Leahy has racked up a staggering $1 trillion-plus in orders ranging from diminutive A318s that list for about $75 million up to the double-decker A380, with a price tag topping $400 million.

BOC has committed to more than 300 Boeing aircraft since its establishment. It took delivery of its 200th Boeing aircraft in March 2017 and has an additional 74 737 MAXs on order.

Nevertheless, these attacks fueled a strong sense of mistrust between the coalition soldiers and the Afghan military. Resolute Support said the attack, which took place at about 14:00 local time (09:30 GMT), was under investigation.

"We think the timing's just right", Boeing chief executive officer Dennis Muilenberg said in an interview with Bloomberg TV.

"This 737 MAX 10 order further enhances our fleet with the newest technology, offering our customers commonality along with increased range and available seating", GECAS president and CEO Alec Burger said.

GECAS has 170 MAXs on order, the largest of any aircraft leasing company.

CDB Aviation and Tui Group have also signed up, with CDB requesting 10 jets, and Tui converting 18 orders to the aircraft.
