Boeing Ends 737NG Production

Boeing Commercial is ending production of the 737 Next Generation line after KLM's PH-BCL (l/n 7542) rolls off the assembly line. Numerically, Skymark Airlines' JA73AC (l/n 7597) is the final 737 NG to be built. We are hoping that JA73AC makes its delivery flight through HNL, but it's highly unlikely, as most summer Japan-bound deliveries go through ANC.

There are still six China United Airlines 737-89Ps and a China Eastern Airlines 737-89P awaiting delivery at BFI, that should stop through HNL.

The only Next Generation-based airframes that will continue production, is the P-8A Poseidon for the US Navy, and other international military forces.
