Boeing delivers the 7,370th 737 aircraft

Boeing has delivered the 7,370th 737 aircraft to come off the production line to Indonesia-based Lion Air. The aircraft is Lion Air’s 75th Next-Generation 737.

The Boeing 737 is the best-selling commercial jetliner of all time with total orders exceeding 10,100 aircraft, including orders for the new 737 MAX.

The 737 — a short-to-medium-range aircraft — is based on a key Boeing philosophy of delivering added value to airlines with reliability, simplicity and reduced operating and maintenance costs. In addition, the newer 737 models offer a modern flight deck using the most advanced navigation technology available today.

Airlines can choose to provide their flight crews with either the latest display format, common with models such as the 777, or opt for data format commonality with earlier 737 models.

The Next-Generation 737 family is offered in four sizes, ranging from 110 to 220 seats.

  • The 737-600 is the smallest member of the family and can carry up to 132 passengers.
  • The 737-700 is capable of carrying up to 149 passengers.
  • The 737-800 can seat up to 189 passengers.
  • Finally, the 737-900ER is the longest 737, capable of carrying up to 180 passengers in a two-class layout and is certified for up to 220 passengers in a one-class layout.

Boeing’s newest family of airliners – 737 MAX 7, 737 MAX 8 and 737 MAX 9 – will build on the Next-Generation 737’s popularity and reliability while delivering customers unsurpassed fuel efficiency in the single-aisle market. Development of the 737 MAX is on schedule with firm configuration of the aircraft planned for 2013, first flight in 2016 and deliveries to customers beginning in the fourth quarter of 2017. Already a market success, the 737 MAX has accumulated more than 1,000 orders and commitments from 16 customers worldwide since its launch on the 30th August, 2011.

The passenger-preferred Boeing Sky Interior will come standard on the 737 MAX. Drawing from years of research inspired by the travel experience, the 737 Boeing Sky Interior features new, modern-sculpted sidewalls and appealing features reveals that draw passenger eyes to the airplane’s windows, giving passengers a greater connection to the flying experience.

The interior also features larger, pivoting overhead stowage bins that add to the openness of the cabin. The bins give more passengers room to store a carry-on roll-aboard near their own seat, adding both extra convenience and extra leg room.

Boeing redesigned reading-light switches so passengers can find them more easily and avoid accidentally pressing the flight-attendant call button.

Speakers integrated into each row’s passenger-service unit improve sound and clarity of public address operations, while the new air grill is tamper-proof and improves operational security.
