I'm surprised there wasn't dual certification with the EASA.

Looks fantastic. I know this is a view probably not held by many on A.net, but I think the 737MAX is uniquely handsome.

Another Batik Malaysia now fully painted at RNT. Wearing 9M-LRC and believed to be ln 5948 (not confirmed). The other painted one sans reg is still parked round the back at the lake side.

An update on the other 2 : both are parked in the west side stalls, one is all white with a yellow rudder, the other is all white with a white rudder. Assuming that the one round the back is 1A204 ln 6222 as posted by Woody, then I think the yellow rudder one is probably 1A202 ln 6034 and the white rudder one there now is 1A203 ln 6114. I must stress that this is nothing more than (somewhat) educated guesswork based on the limited info available in the public domain and could be wrong.

Quite strange indeed. First delivery remains scheduled for July, it looks like Southwest will build up a large 737 MAX fleet before putting the aircraft into service.

Is WN still retiring 737 Classics prior to starting service? If so, they will need a number of -8 MAX for a rapid transition.

It all makes sense. Have to retire the classics before flying the MAX. However, the classics are needed for the summer lift. So at the end of summer, retire the classics and have a bunch of MAX ready to go to replace them.

The final 737 classic flight is the day before MAX operations I believe. Final classic flight is in Sept 30th and MAX begins service Oct 1st.

I see that there are 78 737-300s still in the fleet, I'm not sure how many will remain for the summer but that is quite a bit to have gone by September. How many MAX aircraft are to be delivered for EIS.

Edit: Just saw 9-10 aircraft initially, quite the capacity drop.

Just saw this - Courtesy of RoutesOnline -
Southwest Airlines on Thursday 16MAR17 opened reservation for its new Boeing 737MAX 8 (IATA Code: 7M8), set to enter operations on 01OCT17. Initially, the airline will put 9 aircraft into revenue service on 01OCT17, and for the first week the MAX 8 will serve over 20 cities in Southwest network. A 10th aircraft is scheduled to enter service by the following week.

You are forgetting the 50+ -800s and used -700s WN is adding this year also, in addition to 14 MAX.

14 MAX and 54 -800s/-700s

67 planes in, 87 planes out. Planes in have more seats.

Dunno where you've heard that but it's wrong. 6369 is an Air China -800. The first Norwegian -8 is line 6360 with the 2nd one not far behind - 6372.

Well for starters since the plane is running ahead of the initial schedule (Boeing was originating targeting 3Q2017 EIS, while acknowledging that if things go smoothly they may delivery it earlier) the airlines may not be fully prepared to take on the plane as of right now. The earlier than initially planned certification may have also affected the number and pace of production frames that Boeing was expected to have prepared/completed at certification time.

Minor correction. The initial target was 4Q, but was then bumped up to 3Q.

But the testing seems to be going well. Perhaps maybe even sooner.

Can someone enlighten me why Southwest will take delivery of at least 9 737 MAX aircraft before putting them into service? I have never heard this before, airlines tend to put expensive aircraft into service immediately.

I believe it has something to do with the Pilot contracts, WN wanted to operate Classic/NG/MAX together but the pilots revolted and said because the MAX was not in the contract the weren't gonna fly them. Now the Classics have to be gone before MAX flying starts.

I thought the issue was that the FAA wouldn't authorise one pilot group to be across three variants; it had to be either Classic/NG or NG/MAX.

The issue is the FAA, not the contract. No one wants to segment the pilots. Classic flying is needed for summer lift, then retire them and fly the MAX. There is also a lot of prep work needed to ensure a successful operation.
