Its all-Boeing jetliner fleet includes 17 Boeing 737-800s, four Boeing 737-900ERs and one Boeing 737-300 Freighter, which serves more than 50 domestic and regional destinations. The delivery is scheduled from 2021 onwards.

In a sign of their more modest expectations, some companies have cut back on staffing and catering at this year's Paris show and made less space available for the media.

On Monday, Boeing said GE Capital Aviation Services, the aircraft leasing and financing division of General Electric Co., will convert orders for 20 Max 9 planes to Max 10s.

The US planemaker said it had more than 240 orders and commitments from at least 10 customers for the new 737, which can carry up to 230 people in a single-class configuration.

Of the new MAX 10 jet, Boeing sales vice president Ihssane Mounir said: "It is getting a big endorsement from airlines and that is leading to more lessors endorsing it too". The carrier plans to grow its operational fleet to 100 airplanes by 2020 and looks to expand regionally with the new 737 MAX family of airplanes.
