Boeing, United Airlines announce repeat orders for 737 MAX and 777
SEATTLE, Wash., – Boeing and United Airlines announced earlier this month that the carrier ordered 24 additional 737 MAX jets and four more 777-300ER (extended range) airplanes last year. The $4.5 billion order, according to list prices, was booked as unidentified on Boeing's Orders and Deliveries website. The Chicago-based airline has placed new orders for the two Boeing jets to serve its domestic and international network.
“United Airlines has been instrumental to the phenomenal success of the Boeing 737 and 777 programs over the years. We are honored by United’s continued confidence in our people and our airplanes and services,” said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales & Marketing for The Boeing Company. “We are proud to again extend our long-standing partnership with United Airlines with these latest orders.”
The 777 has become the best-selling twin-aisle jet family in history, earning more than 2,000 orders. United’s order pushed the program over the 2,000 threshold in December. The 777-300ER can seat up to 386 passengers in a three-class configuration and has a maximum range of 7,930 nautical miles (14,685 km).
