[-] 737 Max short legged?
« on: September 04, 2018, 01:43:10 PM »
According to Boeing's own literature the still air range of the Max 7 is 3,850nm, the 8 is 3,550nm, the 9 is 3,550 (with an aux tank) and the 10 3,300nm (with an aux tank) yet the newly introduced Max family in GW 2 only offers 3,490nm, 3280nm, and 3270nm respectively. It seems the updated data in AWS falls a bit short of Boeing advertised specs?

Compared figures to AWS database and Boeing’s detailed data and they are pretty much the same. (some very minor differences since B has updated the doc in June 2018, but nothing major)

(737-8: Boeing says full payload ac will fly 2500 nm, aws says 2450, etc.)

Don't forget to compare range at nominal seating.

Before, the MAX7 was at 126 nominal seating, and 4000 range. Still is at 4000 range at 126 seats. Just capacity is now bigger, which means that apparent range is lower. But if you need to transport 126 pax to 4000 NM, you still can. It simply gives you more punch at more standard distances for single-aisle aircraft.

Next time I play in Western Europe, I'll go the Boeing path again. I like those MAXs. In Eastern Europe, OTOH, A320 are superior.

Maybe, but probably only for late games, I'd say.
Because of the 156 vs 126 seats: in the 80s or even 90s, you'll find few routes to fill an A320 in Eastern Europe.

That may hold true for the 8 and 9, but Boeing's own material shows the Max 7 at 3,850nm with 153 seats. Currently AWS is 3,490 with 150 seats.

Mid point values:
737-8: OEW 45tn, MTOW 82tn
AWS: Payload-point value at 15.9tn (overall weight 60.9tn), range 3500nm
Boeing docs (page 40): Overall weight 134tn lbs = 60.8tn kg, range 3500 nm.
==> So everything correct there too.

Detailed 737-7 values are not published by Boeing yet.

Fair enough, will be on the lookout for more detailed Max 7 info!
