A new Boeing Next-Generation 737-700 departs for a test flight prior to its delivery to Lineas Aereas Prividas Argentinas (LAPA). The South American carrierannounced a new order for six new 737-700 jetliners. LAPA is the first Latin American operator of 737-700 airplanes, with a fleet of eight. The airline operates an all Boeing fleet, including 767-300ER, 757-200 and 737-200 airplanes. Since the launch of the Boeing Next-Generation family in 1993, it has become the most successful new jetliner in commercial aviation history.
