Week of the 737
(Source: Boeing Randy’s Blog; posted Jan 28, 2016)
Our team in Renton got one good piece of news after another this week.

On Friday, we announced the first flight of the 737 MAX is now set for January 29. While that’s always subject to weather and a lot of other factors, it shows we’re right on track.

United ordered 40 737-700s. We’re thrilled to continue adding Boeing airplanes to their fleet. As you know, Bombardier was aggressively positioning its C-Series jet in this campaign.

Southwest also announced its order for 33 737-800s, which was booked in December. We appreciate them for flying an all-Boeing fleet.
