We announce order for 100 Boeing 737 MAX 10 aircrafts

By The Hub team, June 20, 2017

Today, in partnership with Boeing, we announced an agreement at the 52nd International Paris Air Show to convert 100 of our current MAX 9 orders into 737 MAX 10s. This order will make us the largest single MAX 10 customer in the world.

"The 737 MAX 10 will enable us to continue using larger and more efficient aircraft within our domestic network and better meet the needs of our customers today and into the future," said Andrew Levy, United's executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Like all of Boeing's 737 MAX models, the MAX 10 incorporates the latest technology CFM International LEAP-1B engines, Advanced Technology winglets, the Boeing Sky Interior, large flight deck displays, and other improvements to deliver superior efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market.

"The addition of this advanced aircraft to our fleet will enable us to continue to offer the state-of-the-art flying experience our customers expect when traveling with us," said Gerry Laderman, United's senior vice president of finance, procurement and treasurer.

We have flown nearly every version of the 737 that Boeing has produced — the new 737 MAX 10 will add to that legacy, providing another in a long line of highly successful aircraft.

Additionally, we also announced an order for four more 777-300ER aircrafts bringing us to a total of 18 777-300ERs which we began taking delivery of last year. The 777-300ERs feature our all-new United Polaris business class, which includes custom-designed, exclusive-to-United seats, an elevated dining experience, new custom bedding from Saks Fifth Avenue as well as brand-new amenity kits.

"We're excited that our long partnership with United will extend far into the future," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Kevin McAllister. "The MAX 10 will provide even more flexibility to United's route schedule and give them the best economics of any airplane in the single-aisle segment, while the 777-300ER is already being used to showcase their new Polaris interior."

We expect to begin taking delivery of the Boeing 737 MAX 10 in 2020.
