Comair B737 Max-8

Unread post by FoxTROT » Tue Dec 18, 2018 8:57 pm

For those interested, information on the build status of Comair’s first B737 Max-8 can be found in this document: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... view#gid=6 (under B737 Production List)

It is listed as Line number 7363 and is shown to be in Final Assembly at the moment.
I’m not sure of the typical timeline from factory rollout to first flight, but according to the table in the document it appears that it is usually an average of about 20 days from first flight to delivery for most B737’s these days.

Last I heard they were expecting delivery of the first aircraft in Q1 2019.
