Copa Airlines (CM, Panamá City Tocumen Int'l) has converted fifteen of its B737 MAX order slots into MAX 10s. The Panamanian carrier ordered sixty-one B737 MAX jets from Boeing (BOE, Chicago O'Hare) in April 2015 with five B737-9s due to be delivered in 2018 and fifteen in 2019. An unspecified number of the remaining forty-one were allocated to the B737-8.

As such, Copa's Vice President (Maintenance) Ahmad Zamany told a press conference at the 2017 Paris Air Show that the main factor in the airline's decision to acquire the MAX 10 was its higher seat capacity - 188 passengers in a two-class configuration compared to 178 for the MAX 9 and 162 in the MAX 8.

"Due to the long-term success we've had operating the Next-Generation 737, we had placed a sizable order of B737 MAX aircraft for our future, and the B737 MAX 10 provides additional flexibility for certain segments of our network," Zamany said.
