Boeing blockbuster: Delta signs deal for 100 737 MAX 10 aircraft

From The Points Guy:

Delta Air Lines will add the Boeing 737 MAX 10 to its fleet, the airline and Boeing confirmed on Monday, with a deal for 100 of the latest model of Boeing’s workhorse narrow-body, plus 30 options.

The deal, announced at the Farnborough Airshow outside of London, will see the Atlanta-based carrier begin to take deliveries in 2025 pending the certification timeline for the plane type.

This is Delta’s first order for new aircraft from Boeing since 2011, when the airline signed an agreement to purchase 100 of the planemaker’s 737-900ER jets. The airline took delivery of the final new plane from that order in 2019. Delta has also purchased or leased several used Boeing aircraft since then.

The airline has also signed a services agreement related to several used 737-900ER aircraft the airline recently acquired.

The MAX 10 is the highest capacity version of Boeing’s latest generation narrow-body aircraft. With a slightly shorter range but more seats than other MAX models, the MAX 10 would likely slot between the  Airbus A321neo and the 737-900ER in Delta’s fleet in terms of range and capacity.

“The strategy was based on the fact that we have aircraft that are retiring, and the MAX 10 fits into our network well,” Delta senior vice president for fleet and tech operations Mahendra Nair said at a press conference at the airshow. “The MAX 10 fits in with our A321neos very well.”
