A change in Boeing customer codes

Tue Jan 24, 2017 4:41 pm

Hi all,

I would like your attention for the following:

Boeing have dropped the 2-digit airline code from its model type for the current build Boeing 737, 747, 767, & 777 as of August/September 2016.

B737 - From line number 6082 now known as either 737-800, 737-900, or 737-900ER
B747 - From line number 1534 now known as either 747-8I (Intercontinental) or 747-8F (Freighter)
B767 - From line number 1102 now known as 767-300F (only Freighters in current production)
B777 - from line number 1422 now known as 777-300/ER or 777-F (Freighter)
The 737 MAX models will be known as 737-7, 737-8, & 737-9, bringing the numbering convention into line with the B787's.


The editors have created the following additions to the DB:

(Generic > Version)
Boeing 737-9 > Boeing 737-9
Boeing 737-9 > Boeing 737-9 Max
Boeing 737-900 (BBJ3) > Boeing 737-900
Boeing 737-900 (BBJ3) > Boeing 737-900/ER
Boeing 747-8 > Boeing 747-8F
Boeing 747-8 > Boeing 747-8I
Boeing 767-300 > Boeing 767-300F
Boeing 777-300 > Boeing 777-300/ER
Boeing 777-300 > Boeing 777-F

The Boeing 737-800 version and Boeing 737-8 generic plus versions already existed in the DB. The Boeing 737-9 is a new Generic Type to the DB. Please note there is of course still a difference between the 737-8 and 737-800 (also goes for 737-9 and 737-900). I would like to ask you all to please upload any photos of new Boeing aircraft as per the above.

If you have any questions, please feel free to respond to this thread.

Regards,

Kas
