The improved 737 MAX 7 — A Better Way to Fly according to Boeing.
The MAX 7 will fly farther, increase revenue and provide the lowest seat mile cost of any airplane in its class. The airplane will open new markets and provide exceptional performance for high elevation airports and opens new opportunities for low cost carrier airlines.
The 737 MAX will compete directly with the Airbus A320neo, both fighting for dominance of the single aisle passenger jet market.

With 20% lower costs per seat, the 737 MAX 200 brings the opportunity of affordable air travel to everyone.
The most efficient winglet on any airplane
The new 737 MAX AT winglet is the most efficient ever designed for a production airplane. This is the story of the ingenious manipulation of aerodynamics that makes this distinctive design so efficient.
Without any winglets, the air flow over the tip of every wing will roll up from the high pressure area under the wing to the low pressure area above it.
When the wing is moving forward at high speed, airflow over the tip of the wing is forced back, with the upward and backward flow elements combining to form vortices. These vortices cause lift-induced drag, lowering the efficiency of the wing.
With the original blended winglet design, the airflow at the tip is used to create lift on the winglet, primarily vectored toward the fuselage. There is also a small element of lift vectored forward, reducing the lift-induced drag. Both these elements improve the efficiency of the wing.
Boeing is introducing the very latest in advanced winglet technology, the 737 MAX AT Winglet. In addition to the inward, upward and slightly forward lift components of the upper aerofoil, the new lower aerofoil generates a vertical lift component that is vectored away from the fuselage, and also slightly forward. Working together, these provide the perfectly balanced winglet that maximizes the overall efficiency of the wing.
Believing there was even more efficiency to be gained on top of the benefits from this ingenious solution, the 737 MAX team went on to incorporate Boeing’s advanced natural laminar flow technology into the surface material specification for the MAX AT winglet.
