7216 737-9 Flydubai - 1st 737-9 MAX for Flydubai

Interesting, Is this the first time we've found out Flydubai has 9's on order, I had it down as their order was all 8's and some unidentified. I'd been wondering when we would first get some surprise 9's on the line, and it appears we're getting our firsts. Awesome find and great pics as always!

Facinating that we have our first surprise -9.

I expect many as Boeing offers each customer an upgrade price and timeline. I suspect 12- to 15 months notice is required. For the -10, Landing gear is longer lead, so Boeing will require 18 to 24 months notice.

Lightsaber

Flydubai isn’t a surprise. When they ordered 175 Maxes last year they said 50 will be the Max 10 and the remainder a balance of 8 and 9s. They also mentioned this past spring about how they would be getting their first Max 9 in the later half of the year.

Anyone know why TC-LCF is being delivered before TC-LCB/LCC/LCD/LCE? LCB has been sitting and waiting over a month now..

The registrations aren't in order by line number for whatever reason so LCF came off the line before LCB.

This Site shows 15 delivered in September, but I suspect a few more will show up on the list for the month.

Anyone know what will happen to Primeras Max 9s? And do they already have the extra fuel tanks installed ? Would these aircraft be deliverable to United or Copa for example ?

The one and only MAX 9 built for the now defunct Primera Air has been registered as N910BA 43339 737-9 Boeing Company. Will head off to storage until a new customer can be sourced. It has a full interior for Primera Air, so unless the new customer wants it, it will need to be changed out.

It was assigned N910BA months ago for ferry to GED for aux tanks (like the old aux tank TK 737-900ERs that were all N9**TK). The registration has nothing to do with the current situation.

The primera story is pretty sad if u ask me, but an even bigger blow to the 737 Max 9. I believe that the extended range of the aircraft was really going to allow it to prove itself as an actual contender. But I guess we will see what happens now. Maybe, UA can swipe them up for real cheap and either place them on transatlantic routes replacing some 757s... Or transcons.

It now looks like 22 at least, possibly 24 for September. It's hard to imagine them not hitting the target for the year at this point.

It's not that many. I show 19 definites with possibly 2 more as the 2x WN Max frames that flew away on Oct 1 may have completed the paperwork in time to be listed under September.

Yeah I wondered about the few at the start of September if they got counted for August. But it still looks like the target is doable if the recovery doesn't lose steam.

Does Boeing have a contingency for Jet Airways going belly up soon unless they find an investor? They have a lot of deliveries coming up and financially they are almost nearing the end of the road. I assume these will be sale and leaseback, so the onus will on the lessor to sort this impending mess.

The future ones I'm seeing are all already on the books of various lessors so Boeing won't care and I doubt the lessors will either as they won't have any problems finding new customers for brand new Max 8s at short notice.

So potentially dozens of -8 may be available for lease within a year, with repainting and interior mess to be dealt with.

The Primera 737 will sell quickly. Don't think anyone needs to worry about it. It still is a blanc canvas and the buyer may actually get his plane earlier, if he is at the back of the order line.

I believe one has it's interior. That doesn't sound like a large stumbling block to placement of their ordered frames.

Will so called "MAX 200" aircraft be actually registered as such, or is it just some sort of marketing term, with the aircraft basically being treated as MAX 8s for official purposes? Sorry for asking this here but didn't know where to put it.


I just think MAX 200 is an absolutely terrible name for an aircraft, makes no sense. Call it MAX 8+ or something.

It will be a 737 Max 8, or to be correct, 737-8 for certification purposes.

My understanding is that it does not have the Auxiliary tanks installed. Per Rob above, it was going to be ferried for tank install under the N910BA registration.

Boeing no longer refers to that plane as the Max 200. They call that variant the “high capacity Max 8” now.

Boeing's own internal data disagrees.

The first frame shows a firing order configuration and specification data as "737-8200" fwiw. A further fwiw : "Max" is only a marketing name and not used on internal systems. They are simply 737-8, 737-9. I guess the same thing happened back in the day when the 737 Next Generation was a new thing. Everyone was calling them that or NG, but again it was just a marketing name and eventually faded away for them to become known simply as 737-700, 737-800 etc.

This is correct. No extra tank installed by Boeing. It was going to get it somewhere after delivery.

One NG line is supposed to be outfitted this month for MAX production. When will it start spitting out planes?

From the recent pictures and deliveries, it doesn't appear that CFM is having quite the problems rumored in August.

I expect it will still go for the aux tanks fitting as the contract for that work would have been set in place quite some time ago and would probably prove to be rather costly to cancel at this stage. Just guessing here though; I don't have any facts on the new plan for it since Primera went pop.

The contract may have been in place but it's probably between Primera and the tank people -- not Boeing and the tank people.

Primera aren't (weren't) the customer - Air Lease Corp is, and I would think the tank contract would be with ALC as the owner of the frame, rather than the lessee.

I wouldn’t think it will be too difficult to get a taker for this craft.. with or without the aux tanks installed. I would think likewise for any others already in the production pipeline. While it would be great, I can’t see UA or CM having any interest though.

Still 2 left at RNT 7130 & 7135. But yes they are getting things caught up at RNT. Not as many frames tucked into corners.

It now looks like 22 at least, possibly 24 for September. It's hard to imagine them not hitting the target for the year at this point.


It's not that many. I show 19 definites with possibly 2 more as the 2x WN Max frames that flew away on Oct 1 may have completed the paperwork in time to be listed under September.


It was 22 in the end as the 2x WN Max frames in Oct went under Sep numbers. I missed the UA 737-9 on Sep 30 in my original count on 19 (+2).

ATS will have nothing left to do soon, once they've finished the last 2 WN -800s as there are only 6 more AS 900ERs left to come, not including the 2 that are up there at the moment.

While I was looking I checked the remaining 900ERs to the end of production :

AS : 6
JT : 2
DL : 26

Earlier in this thread it was pointed out that neither of the two MAX7 test aircraft had flown in quite some time. Today we have confirmation from the Seattle Times in their article about Boeing reducing it's backlog of 7373's.

Boeing has been so focused on getting the situation under control that in early August it suspended flight tests of the new MAX 7 variant of the 737 so that the flight-test team could help with the 737 recovery efforts.

Bergman said the two MAX 7 test planes will resume certification test flights “in the coming weeks” and that Boeing still expects to certify and deliver the first MAX 7 next year.

Any UA folks here that can tell us why N37507 flew back to BFI from SEA yesterday as UA2686 and has just left for IAH as UA2685 a few mins ago? Boeing related issue(s) or a charter?

Every so often UA does this employee recognition thing with new aircraft. The plane is contractually delivered to UA and then flys to a UA maintenance facility ( in this case SEA) for a seven to ten day induction process. The plane then goes back to PAE or BFI where a large group of UA employees (selected from around the system ) have been wine and dined, toured of Boeing places, and then sign for a ceremonial delivery of the aircraft from Boeing. It’s a very nice way of recognizing various employees for equally various achievements.

??? You realize the post delivery mods are just a small part of their business (ATS). I was in auditing recently ... They have plenty of work.

Of course, but the wifi and winglet mod work on all the new WN 738s and AS 739s was a sizeable chunk of their work for the past decade. I'm sure Boeing can fill any gaps in their schedule by sending them a fresh bunch of tankers over to work on.

LOL what? It's such a small part of everything WN does at ATS. It's not really a sizeable chunk. It was 1 or 2 MX lines out of tons.
