Thursday Norwegian becomes the 2nd airline to take delivery of the Boeing 737 MAX. The airline will take 2 of them home to Oslo tomorrow. They will enter service in around 2 weeks with revenue familiarization flights around short haul Europe before being assigned to their intended long haul transatlantic mission. We will be covering the delivery ceremony beginning Thursday at 10am pdt. Departure is scheduled for 1pm from Boeing Field to Oslo with a flight time of around 8 hours. We will be among the 25 people onboard covering this historic delivery flight.

The pictured aircraft will be the one carrying media on the delivery flight. Within a week after arrival in Oslo, the decal of low cost airline pioneer Freddie Laker will be affixed to the tail as a posthumous honor to him.

As an aside, Malindo Air, the first 737 MAX operator put the second 737 MAX into service today. Boeing reports Malindo's single MAX has experienced 100% dispatch reliability and is running at the same utilization as their NG fleet.

Boeing says 10-15 percent of the 737 deliveries left this year will be for the MAX.
