Southwest Airlines Takes Delivery of First Boeing 737 MAX


It’s always exciting when an airline takes delivery of it’s very first new aircraft line, today Southwest took ownership of their first first Boeing 737 MAX, with an additional 198 on order Southwest is refreshing their entire fleet with a new interior and planes to go along with it.

Today’s event was a low key and they did not have a major celebration to respect the events happening down in Texas right now after the hurricane that ripped through most of the south of Texas including Southwest Airline’s headquarters Dallas Love Field.

The first revenue service of Southwest’s 737 MAX is scheduled for October 1st, 2017 following the retirement of Southwest’s last 737-300 aircraft.
