Boeing has been testing a new model of its Max airplane. It is the largest Max model to leave Boeing’s factory so far.
The Boeing 737 Max 10 can carry 230 passengers, comparable to the 737 Max 9, which can carry 178 – 220 passengers. The Max 10 is primarily designed to compete with the Airbus A321neo, which can carry 185 – 240 passengers. However, the A321neo has a range of about 7400 kilometers, while the 737 Max 10 has a range of about 6100 kilometers.
In its first test flight, the plane was in the air for 2.5 hours, and is expected to begin commercial operations in 2023.
