While we are waiting for the IAM vote tonight, it looks like two more big wins for Boeing.
Bloomberg reports FedEx is about to order 30 767-300ER freighters.
The Wall Street Journal reports Southwest Airlines is about to commit to the 737 MAX.

Both make sense
Given the very small backlog, 767s can probably be bought at a very sweet price at the moment so Boeing can keep the assembly line going.
The last 15 727-200’s were all -200F’s for FedEx. The last one delivered in 1983.
Will FedEx get the final commercial 767-300ER’s?
Close – the last 727 actually rolled out of the factory in August, 1984, after a run of over 1800 airplanes.
FedEx (or UPS?) also took the last A300-600F.
I guess the last A330 will also be a freighter.
Which aircraft will FedEx replace? I would assume the DC10, most of which are a 1000 years old I guess.
This is great news for Boeing, WN, and FedEx. By my count this could push the backlog on the B-767 line to about 75 airplanes, and the B-737MAX to about 800 airplanes. That is assuming WN is not one of the unannounced airlines that have already committed to the MAX.
Yes, Schorsch, I believe the new B-767-300ERFs for FedEx will replace the old and tired DC/MD-10-10/-30s.
