"Boeing Lands $19 Billion 737 Southwest Order"
« on: December 27, 2011, 03:01:41 PM »
"NEW YORK -- Southwest Airlines Co. on Tuesday said it ordered 208 new Boeing 737 aircraft with a value of nearly $19 billion.

The Dallas airline, which operates an all-Boeing fleet, placed a firm order for 150 of the 737 Max, a new version of Boeing's most popular plane with more fuel-efficient engines. Southwest also ordered 58 next-generation 737s.

Because discounts are common, Southwest won't pay the full $19 billion list price."

SWA will not pay the full price, but still a HUGE order!
