Odds and Ends: COPA, Aeromexico, GOL for MAX
The Wall Street Journal reported late today that COPA, Aeromexico and GOL are lining up for the Boenig 737 MAX.
The WSJ article is subscription-only but perhaps it will show up on Google News, as some do.
COPA was one of the original airline “commitments” for the MAX last year, which we reported. We reported that Aeromexico had been expected to announce MAX and 787 orders at the Farnborough Air Show, as its absence was a disappointment to expectations.
GOL, of Brazil, is a long-standing 737 operator but Airbus made a strong push to win this business.
The Seattle Times reported that United Airlines, which last week announced orders for 100 MAXes and 50 737-900ERs, has options that could mean 310 orders from Boeing. United also settled its compensation issues with Boeing over the 787 delays.
