On September 1 Boeing’s new 737-900ER, the platform for the new BBJ3, made its maiden flight. The first -900ER is destined for Indonesia’s Lion Air. Boeing last November at the Dubai Air Show announced (though not for the first time) that it plans to offer a BBJ3 derivative, but a formal launch decision has yet to be made. A Boeing spokesperson said more information on the BBJ3 will be forthcoming at the NBAA Convention later this month.
