The decision by the Seattle-based airline to exercise the MAX options means the aircraft are now firm commitments for 2023 and 2024, bringing Alaska’s total firm 737-9 order to 93 aircraft.

Five of those aircraft are currently in service, with seven more to be delivered this year.  The revised plan means the oneworld member is now due to take 31 aircraft in 2022, 32 in 2023 and 18 in 2024.
