Recently, Hainan Airlines has become the second Chinese airline to take delivery of the 737 MAX after Air China. It would be great to see this livery be added if we ever get a 737 MAX, as there isn’t a Hainan Airlines livery in the sim yet. Photo credits to Huy Do on Jetphotos.
The 737 MAX is the next iteration of the popular 737 family that features new winglets, engines, and a new tailcone along with various other improvements to help it burn less fuel than the existing 737 Next Generation while being much quieter.
Hainan Airlines is based in Haikou, China, and flies to various international destinations with a fleet of 737, 787, and A330 aircraft, with most of their long-haul flights flying from Beijing to destinations like Seattle, Calgary, and Boston. They are one of the world’s Skytrax 5-star airlines and ranked 9th on the 2017 list of the world’s best airlines.

Why Boeing 737 Max 8
Boeing 737 Max 8 is one of the most advanced Boeing 737 products that has ever released. Boeing 737 MAX 8 is a great representative of the 4th Generation of the Boeing 737. In addition, the Boeing 737 MAX 8 has 1000km longer cruising distance than a 737-8. In IF, the pilots can operate flight from Anchorage to Beijing non-stop. The new wing with special tip and better engine had greatly enhanced the fuel-efficiency of the Boeing 737. Now, airlines worldwide are buying many of these MAX 8, including Alaska Airlines, Southwest AIrlines, Air China, Hainan Airlines and so forth. The information is provided below.
Ok, I think it would be best for everyone to save their votes, and put it in the A350 feature, instead of spreading them out. I am fairly sure that if they make the A350, Hainan will be added without a doubt.
