Boeing and Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair announced this morning that Ryanair will be the launch customer for the Boeing 737 MAX 200.  The order, good for 100 firm orders and 100 options, will solidify Ryanair’s status as an all-737 operator.  What does the “200” stand for?  Well, that’s 200 seats, in a modified 737 MAX 8 airframe. The increase in seats is afforded by the addition of the mid-exit door.

With the current debates over personal space on cramped airplanes, a 200-seat variant such as this will certainly pack ‘em in.
