On top of the access to the 777X, Boeing also gave us access to their 737-10 at the Paris Air Show.
Almost immediately, you can notice the size difference between the two, both on an exterior and interior basis.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Inside the Boeing 737-10 at the Paris Air Show
Like with the 777X, the 737-10 has a range of passenger seats as well as the testing equipment onboard for this.
There are a vast range of computer systems ensuring that all data regarding the aircraft’s performance are recorded and relayed back to the flight test engineers in assisting the certification process.
Inside the cockpit, you can see the notable difference between that of the 737-800NG and the 737-10, with the cockpit screens being noticeably larger than its previous family variant.
Such displays look very clear and crisp, with a lot of the -800NG emulated into this cockpit as well.
The other distinguishable feature is the split scimitar winglet, which does look amazing on the 737-10 livery seen at the Paris Air Show, and is more noticeable in difference compared to the new winglets being installed on older 737-800NG aircraft.
Upon its departure from the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget, the aircraft will head over to Iceland first before continuing on back to Everett.
Looking Ahead to Increased Production Rates & Continued Momentum…
Boeing did confirm to AviationSource that production rates are due to increase the moment the additional final assembly line has been completed at the Everett factory.
For now, the American planemaker continues on its sales momentum and advertising the aircraft, not as a MAX, but as a -7, -8, -9 or -10, depending on which aircraft an airline has purchased.
This has been a great choice and during the Paris Air Show, and even the Farnborough Air Show last year to some extent, has shown that the marketing campaign for Boeing has worked very well, with the level of confidence increasing on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis.
For now, all they can do is continue to ramp up and grow even further, and try to take even more market share off the likes of Airbus & Embraer alike.
