A321ceo vs. B737-900ER deliveries

After yesterdays order from Jetblue for 30 more A321 (15 x A32ceo and 15 x A321neo with the right to convert to the A321LR), the order from Air Asia for 100 A321neo's and the conversion from Norwegian, now taking 30 A321LR, I looked into the delivery breakdown of Airbus und Boeing's narrowbodies.
Airbus delivered 40% of their narrowbodies as the A321this year so far - Boeing delivered less than 10% of all their B737NG's as the B737-900ER version.
The jury is still out if the pressure for Boeing is big enough to be forced to launch a B737MAX-10 or a clean-sheet MoM aircraft. GE Aviation CEO still has problems with the business case, as one could read in one of the latest editions of Flightglobal (sorry, I have no link, saw it on hardcopy only).
Boeing said they still have time to decide what to do...


  1. I think UA is playing a major role in 737-9 / -10 decisions.


  2. Aviation Week dixit, if Boeing goes ahead with their MAX-10, it will be a minimalistic strech of MAX-9 by no more than 66", same wing, same engines and a clever 773-style MLG trick design, causing the TO rotation to happen around the rear wheels axis' of the boogie, cabin size 230 pax all Y-class, only penalties vs A321LR being seat cushion width and range.
