Today, China-based Shanghai Airlines, a subsidiary of China Eastern Airlines, received its first next-generation Boeing 737 MAX 8, a much more fuel efficient version aircraft of the Boeing 737 family. The aircraft, registered B-1382 (MSN 61621, test registration N6046P), is currently in Majuro on its ferry flight to China. These aircraft will be configured with a total of 176 seats, with 8 seats in First Class, 18 in "super economy class," economy seats with extra legroom, and 150 regular economy seats. Per an airline statement, the 737 MAX will make its first flight from Shanghai Hongqiao Airport to Xi'an Xianyang Airport on December 3. Boeing's 737 production log also indicates that Shanghai Airlines' second 737 MAX 8, registered B-1379 (MSN 61622, test registration N3134C), will be delivered in the next couple of days.
