Boeing, Ryanair finalize order for 10 additional 737 MAXs

The 737 MAX 10 (737-10) accounted for "more than 361 orders and commitments from 16 customers" according to the company. Boeing Commercial Airplanes Chief Executive Kevin McAllister this week denied the 737 MAX 10 would have any financing issues.

"The 737 MAX with 197 seats provides Ryanair with the flawless solution for its additional capacity requirements as it strives to carry 200 million passengers per year by the middle of the next decade", said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president, Global Sales & Marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It announced more than 100 orders worth about $13.5bn, although some were customers changing their selection of models from previous orders. With the latest advances in engines and aerodynamics, they promise significant fuel savings to airlines, which have responded with hundreds of orders for single aisle aircraft that are the workhorses of their fleets.

Leahy, speaking at his last big air show before retiring later this year, said he had expected the new Boeing plane to make more of a splash.

Boeing unveiled a new model of its best-selling 737 aircraft on Monday, injecting life into a faltering civil aviation market as French President Emmanuel Macron flew in to open the world's biggest airshow in Paris.

Chinese low-priced carrier Ruili Airlines inked a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for 20 737 MAX aircraft valued at $2.2 billion at list prices.

Iran says it fired missiles targeting Daesh in Syria
The Guard's website, as well as semi-official news agencies, reported the strikes Sunday on Deir el-Zour, Syria . Iran identifies Islamic State militants as "Takfiri terrorists".

United also announced an order for four additional Boeing 777-300ERs, taking the total order for the aircraft type to 18. The Max family of planes is oversold through 2020, and capacity is finite for the model favored by budget carriers, Slattery said in an interview.

China's Xiamen Airlines, in contrast, announced a potential piece of new business for Boeing, with a memorandum of understanding to order 10 737 MAX 10s in a deal that would be worth $1.2 billion at list prices.

AerCap has 100 737 MAX aircraft on order, now comprising 85 MAX 8s and 15 MAX 10s.

The 737 Max 9 is the newest version of Boeing's 737 airliner, which has been in production in some form for 40 years. Much air cargo nowadays goes in the belly of wide-body passenger planes rather than freighters.

In a presentation at the air show, Mike Delaney, Boeing vice president in charge of new airplane development, said the plane - like the Dreamliner - will be all-composite.
