Boeing can see into your future
And as it turns out… the demand for jets will only get stronger over the next 20 years – a convenient prediction from Boeing, indeed. Much of that demand will come from the Asia-Pacific region, along with Europe and North America, of course. However, by 2037, Asian airlines will have around 75% more plans than their North American rivals.
Out with the old, in with the new… and while only 4% of commercial jets are at least 25 years old today, that number will inevitably increase as the years go by (duh). By the mid-2020s, about 500 planes per year will reach their 25th birthday and beyond. But rather than a party, these “old” planes will likely find themselves kicked to the curb and replaced by the new and improved models.
Small jets are a thing of the past… because they are much less fuel efficient given the number of passengers they carry. This lack of fuel-efficiency means the Boeing 737 and 737 MAX will be one of your only options – making up about 70% of what is in the sky. Okay, so Boeing can only [sort of] predict your flying future – but I hope you still found this section worthwhile.
