American Airlines Orders 85 Boeing 737 MAX Jets

Issue: 2 / 2024

Boeing and American Airlines announced that the carrier will further modernise its global fleet with its first order for the largest 737 MAX airplane. American is committing to 115 of the 737-10 model, which includes a new order for 85 jets and a conversion of a previous order for 30 of the smaller 737-8 variant. The airline is also announcing options to purchase 75 additional 737-10 jets in the future.

With this agreement, American will more than double its 737 MAX order book from about 70 airplanes to more than 150, supporting the airline’s long-term growth strategy with highly efficient jets for its domestic and short-haul international network. The 737-10 will complement American’s current fleet of 737-8 airplanes, allowing the airline to tap into the 737 MAX family’s commonality and flexibility to efficiently meet growing travel demand.
