@ByERussell Björn Kjos new venture Norse Atlantic Airways wants to replicate Norwegian Air’s jettisoned long-haul, low-cost model. It has the planes, now all it needs are the permits, writes @munnikrishnan.
@ByERussell Including PDPs and other credits, Southwest’s cost per Max is ~$35mn, still a steep discount. h/t @WandrMe.
@ByERussell Southwest Airlines orders 100 737 Max 7s, ending its flirtation with the Airbus A220 for its future fleet needs. $LUV.
@ByERussell Southwest says its 169 #737Max deliveries through 2026 will cost it $5.1B, or $30.2mn — well below the ~$100mn list price, or the ~$46mn appraised value for the 737-7. via @juliejohnsson @Schlangenstein.
@ByERussell This is a big win for Boeing, while Southwest certainly got a deep discount, an order for 100 737-7s is worth around $10B at list prices.
