Southwest orders more B737-7s

Southwest has decided to firm options on another 34 B737-7s, bringing its total number of B737-7s on order to 234. It was last March that the airline already announced a large order for 100 MAXs.

With this latest order, Southwest has ordered a total of 414 MAXs, with a breakdown of 234 B737-7s and 180 B737-8s. The airline has so far taken delivery of 68 B737-8s. Together with its 462 B737-700s and 207 B737-800s the fleet is now exactly 737 aircraft. This won't last long, however, as at least ten more MAXs are set to be delivered this year.
