Another delivery milestone was achieved this week with United Airlines receiving it’s 70th Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft via it’s handover flight from Seattle to Chicago.
The airline is steadily increasing the number of units of the MAX family owned in the fleet, as growth and renewal continues.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
From Seattle to Chicago: United Receives 70th Boeing 737 MAX 8…
United Airlines flight UA3849 departed Boeing Field, Seattle at 1030 local time on November 21 and headed eastbound to Chicago/Rockford.
N27323, the 70th Boeing 737 MAX 8 for United Airlines, landed into it’s destination at 1539 local time that same day.
At the time of writing (22/11/23), the aircraft hasn’t operated it’s first commercial flight, although this is due to change in the next few days.
Of the Boeing 737 MAX variant, United Airlines has the following, which have been on many delivery flights between Seattle & Chicago:
- 70 737-8s.
- 78 737-9s.
This means that at the time of writing, the carrier now has 148 units of the aircraft type, as per data from Planespotters.net.
United Airlines has ordered a total of 546 737 MAX aircraft over the last 10 years, meaning that they still have another 398 on order.
All eyes will be on the carrier to see how the rest of the deliveries will go for them. Once they are all done, will they get anymore? What do you think?
Let us know in the comments whether you think the airline will order anymore aircraft.
