Romania's Blue Air to buy six aircraft from Boeing

Ryanair Boeing 737 MAX

United said it was converting 100 previously placed 737 orders to the Max 10, which is created to haul as many as 230 people on transcontinental flights of about 3,000 nautical miles. Boeing Commercial Airplanes Chief Executive Kevin McAllister this week denied the 737 MAX 10 would have any financing issues.

A day after Boeing formally launched the MAX 10, the largest member of the new single-aisle jet family seating up to 230 passengers, it announced a further 153 orders for the airplane.

XAutoplay: On | Off But Vertical Research Partners said Wednesday that "a staggering 64%" of Boeing's total orders at the show are nonfirm agreements.

In a long-term perspective, Boeing estimated its manufacturing for aircraft deliveries to grow 41,030 jetliners over the next two decade, higher than last year's 39,620 with the latest value reaching $6 trillion.

The company thus became the first Boeing 737 MAX operator in Romania.

While it trailed Boeing this year, Airbus had moved first to offer airlines an updated model offering greater fuel efficiency a few years ago. "I think the rest of their product line is going to be cannibalised by that aircraft", Leahy said of the 737 MAX 10.

Twin Cities Pride Organizers Apologize, Say Police Are Welcome at Parade
FILE - In this March 30, 2016 file photo, Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau speaks at a news conference, in Minneapolis. Davis said he feels that Pride organizers reversing their decision "ignores the entire history of why Pride was started".

Prior to the lease and the new orders placed to Boeing, Blue Air operated a fleet of 25 Boeing 737 aircraft.

The 737 MAX is the fastest-selling aircraft in Boeing history, accumulating more than 3,700 orders from 87 customers worldwide. The MAX 10 will be introduced in the 2020 time frame.

In a presentation at the air show, Mike Delaney, Boeing vice president in charge of new airplane development, said the plane - like the Dreamliner - will be all-composite.

"Many airports are running out of capacity and for those airports this is a ideal aircraft", said Indian-based budget airline SpiceJet's chairman, Ajay Singh, as his firm signed a provisional contract to acquire 40 MAX 10s.

Boeing's projection includes a 5 percent increase in the 20-year forecast for deliveries of single-aisle aircraft such as the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 families, the cash cows of the world's two largest aircraft manufacturers.

The Max 10, the first new model from Chicago-based Boeing since the 777X series was unveiled at the Dubai Air Show in 2013, will be 1.68 metres longer than the $119.2 million Max 9, now the biggest member of the re-engined 737 family, which was launched in 2011.
