Boeing Delivered First 737 Max to Lion Air

Posted on 17.05.2017

Boeing Co. delivered the first 737 Max to the jetliner’s largest customer, Lion Mentari Airlines PT. This hand-off to Lion’s Malaysia affiliate, Malindo Airways, was only one day later than first scheduled after the U.S. planemaker quickly recovered from a possible engine manufacturing defect, which had grounded the fledgling Max fleet last week.

The 737 and Airbus SE’s A320 family are the sturdy workhorses for budget carriers worldwide, built to withstand multiple short flights a day. And thanks to manufacturing scale and processes honed over decades, they are the biggest profit generators for the planemakers, one reason why investors have closely watched the progress of the latest Boeing single-aisle jet so closely.
