    Canada's second-largest airline, Westjet, placed a tentative order on Thursday for 65 Boeing 737 aircraft, which it said it would firm up next month.

    The purchase is estimated to cost Can$6.3 billion.

    WestJet's current fleet consists of 103 Boeing Next-Generation 737, and four Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft.

    Including this pending order, WestJet's future Boeing 737 aircraft deliveries total 92, with commitments for the proposed Boeing 737 MAX 7 and MAX 8 aircraft, scheduled for delivery from 2017 through 2027.

    Wonder if the announcement of Westjet starting flights YYZ-DUB next year with a B737-700 will have them change some of the delivery slots into larger aircraft if this route becomes permenant and not just seasonal, to avoid the one-stop now scheduled.

    Blackjack-21 was reading my mind on this. Surely they thought this through at some level you'd think.
