(well, huge as in the company's largest order...)..wonder if they'll be delivered in DL colours?
Alaska Airlines is buying 50 of Boeing Co.'s new 737s in a deal worth $5 billion at sticker prices.
Alaska, operated by Seattle's Alaska Air Group Inc., won't pay full price. Major airline customers commonly get discounts. The order is the largest-ever for Alaska.
The order includes 37 of Boeing's redesigned 737, which it calls the Max. It's a new version of the classic plane with a redesigned engine aimed at improving fuel efficiency.
