Alaska Airlines to add the former SunExpress Germany D-ASMA

First MAX 9 for SunExpress Germany, not taken up

SunExpress Airlines of Germany will not take delivery of the pictured Boeing 737-9 MAX 9 previously registered as D-ASMA (msn 64960) (above). This was going to be the first MAX 9 for the German carrier. The airline has elected to cancel its order for any MAX aircraft.

Meanwhile, as previously reported, Alaska Airlines is snatching up any extra MAX 9s it can find through Boeing.

The airframe has now been painted in full Alaska Airlines colors minus the telltale SunExpress rudder pending delivery to the Seattle-based airline. The airliner carries a temporary Boeing registration of N1784B (msn 64960).
