Today, Air Canada, in a surprising move has decided to replace their current Airbus narrowbody fleet with the competition — the Boeing 737 MAX. They have ordered a total of 61 of the aircraft, with 33 going to the MAX 8 and 23 to the larger MAX 9. The up to 109 part of the transaction comes from 30 purchase rights and 18 options. At list prices, the firm orders would be a transaction of over six billion dollars, but you better believe that the airline made a stellar deal for the planes. (www.airlinereporter.com) More...
