SAO PAULO — I’m posting this journal entry from Brazil as we continue to take the 737 MAX message around the world. And even though we’re talking MAX on this trip, I wanted to start with a great photo shoot I did with a 747-8 Intercontinental model. The beautiful city of Sao Paulo made the perfect backdrop for our beautiful airplane.

Don’t worry— I wouldn’t dare toss this beauty.
Back to the MAX, Latin America really underscores the potential for this airplane. The dynamics of this market have changed dramatically with about 80 percent of demand over the next two decades coming in the single-aisle segment. Today in alone, almost half of the capacity is provided by low cost carriers. That’s why we expect the 737 MAX to be a huge player here.
I’ll leave you with a photo from one of my favorite restaurants in Sao Paulo — the ever popular Fogo de Chao where I never leave hungry!
The guys at Fogo de Chao never let me down.
