Southwest Airlines is delaying the delivery of its first 737 MAX. Norwegian will thus become the launch customer of the new model.

Boeing pushes a new 737 MAX-10X as an alternative to the A321neo LR

As Boeing continues to refine the configuration of the proposed 737-10X, the company confirms it has begun making firm offers to customers for the final stretch of the MAX family.

Unveiling the first image of the -10X at the ISTAT conference in San Diego, California, Boeing Commercial Airplanes sales Vice President Randy Tinseth said the 66-inch stretch variant will have "the lowest seat costs ever for a single-aisle airplane. Simply put, the 737 MAX 10X would be most profitable single-aisle airplane the industry has ever seen."

Boeing first revealed studies of the -10X stretch in early 2016 following pressure from its loyal airline group. These included Asian carriers such as Korean Airlines which asked Boeing to develop a more direct counter to the larger Airbus A321neo than the already launched 737-9. Although longer fuselage extensions were considered, Boeing finally opted for a more modest stretch late last year and is believed to have received authority from the company to offer the model around October.

Boeing could begin delivering the B737 MAX 10X in 2020 if airlines start ordering the largest version of its B737 MAX family in 2017.
