Boeing launches new jet with flurry of orders

Boeing Claims $75 Billion in Sales at Paris Air Show

United said it was converting 100 previously placed 737 orders to the Max 10, which is created to haul as many as 230 people on transcontinental flights of about 3,000 nautical miles.

According to industry sources, the 737 MAX 10 has a catalog value of $125 million making this order worth about $12.5 billion before discounts that are customary for aircraft purchases.

Delivery to airlines like United Airlines, British Airways and launch customer Singapore Airlines will begin next year.

The Max family of planes is oversold through 2020, and capacity is finite for the model favored by budget carriers, Slattery said in an interview.
