Are airlines prioritizing investment in technologically-advanced narrowbody aircraft instead of widebodies? It is hard to generalize, but opening a fourth assembly line for the Boeing 737 MAX surely says something about the aircraft demand the US manufacturer Boeing forecasts for the years to come. Let's look closely at Boeing's latest announcement.

Boeing to open a fourth assembly line for the Boeing 737 MAX

Over the last few years, Boeing and Airbus have progressively invested in developing technologically advanced versions of their narrowbody families of aircraft, the Boeing 737 and the Airbus A320. Increasingly more airlines have responded positively to the projects, to the point that Boeing has announced today the opening of a fourth production line for the 737 MAX in Everett.

The rationale behind choosing Everett as the location for the additional production line lies in the fact that the manufacturer's jet plant in the US state of Washington is getting emptier with the dismissal of the Boeing 747 and Boeing 787 projects.
