Huge order from a lesser known airline making a move to expand. Great contract for Boeing, but Airbus gets their foot in the door too, gaining entry to a formerly all-Boeing fleet.

I travel overseas several times annually and have never heard of Norwegian Air. Apparently I need to get around Europe more. Wow. That is a heck of an order.

Hope they build them in SC and not WA.

Very cool video. What we do here at Boeing Renton. If you don’t blink you may even see me in it.

Southwest is also supposed to be upgrading a good chunk of its fleet with the new 737 MAX jets. Maybe a great few years for Boeing if Obama doesn’t screw something up (any bets if he will try)?

Perhaps this is a leasing operation.

I see nothing but growth for both companies. It’s a big planet, and more of us will want to travel it. Airline travel now is where autos were in 1960, a rich country’s activity.

We have billions or persons that want what we’ve have.

It is interesting that they would split their fleet with similar aircraft. Adding additional training infrastructure and a logistics chain.
