United Airlines Receives First 737 Max Written 24 April 2018

FlightGlobal reports that United Airlines has taken delivery of its “first Boeing 737 Max 9, marking the stretched Max variant’s debut at a US carrier.” The aircraft was handed over at Boeing’s Seattle delivery center Monday, and the jet was given a “special swoosh livery” due to the aircraft’s fuel efficiency. The 737 Max 8, which is the “baseline variant for the Max family, is 14% more fuel efficient than the 737-800, according to Boeing.” United plans to use the 737-9 for service at its Houston and Los Angeles hubs in June. United has “firm orders for 60 more 737-9s and 100 737 Max 10s, its fleet plan shows.”
