Southwest Airlines will shop for a new plane, potentially ending the exclusive hold the 737 has on its fleet.
The most likely Boeing option would be the 737 MAX 7, a smaller version of its mainstay narrow-body aircraft. Most airlines operate diverse fleets sourced from a number of manufacturers, but Southwest, since its founding, has emphasized network simplicity.
The world's largest planemaker Airbus has taken the industry by surprise by asking suppliers to prepare for a sharp increase in production after the coronavirus crisis - yet at the same time it quietly delayed its timetable for recovery. Airbus said on Thursday it had asked suppliers to be ready to support an 18% increase in output of its best-selling A320 jet in the second half of 2021, partially reversing cuts when the virus provoked a global slump in travel. It divided analysts over whether airlines, many facing reduced furlough schemes, are ready for more jets.
