Alaska Airlines huge order


Southern Gentleman
(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.

I think 2/3 of the order is fleet replacement. The -400s are supposed to be gone by the end of 2014(?) except for a few freighters working in the state of Alaska.
