26 May 2017 - 737 MAX-7 under threat from C series pricing

It is being reported in Flight International that Boeing vice-chairman Ray Conner has spoken to US trade officials at a hearing held by the United States International Trade Commission on 18 May investigating whether Bombardier violated trade rules. The hearing was established after a complaint by Boeing followingh the sales of C Series to Delta at a reportedly low price.made possible by Canadian government subsidies.

Mr Conner is reported to have said that:

"The 100-150 seat market matters greatly to Boeing, and Bombardier is very close to forcing us out of this altogether,"

and

"It will only take one or two lost sales involving US customers before commercial viability of the Max 7, and therefore the US industry's very future, becomes very doubtful,"

A Boeing attourney also said that

"If Boeing cannot secure additional orders for the 737 Max 7, or is forced to sell at depressed prices, the programme will not succeed and Boeing will be eliminated from the 100 to 150 seat market."

The 737 Max 7 has only had 63 orders compared to over 3,500 for the MAX-8.
