Is Boeing 737 700 Same as Max?
Moreover, is Boeing 737 800 the same as 737 MAX?
No, a Boeing 737 Max 8 is not the same thing as a Boeing 737-800. The Max 8 is more fuel efficient, has quieter engines and lower operating costs. Southwest Airlines called it the future of its all-Boeing 737 fleet when it introduced the plane in October 2017.
Also, is the Boeing 737 700 grounded? All 737 Max jets have been grounded since March following two fatal crashes - one in Ethiopia and one in Indonesia. The jets are a version of the workhorse single-aisle airplane that Boeing sold just before the introduction of the 737 Max. Their model names are the 737-700, 737-800 and 737-900.
Consequently, is the Boeing 737 700 Safe?
The incidents in both flights were what is known as a “fan blade out” (FBO) event. The 737-700 is a model in the 737 NG family. Boeing said all 737 NGs are safe to continue operating as the issue is “completely mitigated by the fan blade inspections.”
