Wikipedia gives 45,070 kg as the MAX 8's OEW and 20,882 kg as its maximum payload.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the answer. In fact, I'm looking for oficial information. I did some math and the 737 max 8 has greater OEW than 737-800 NG. That might not be an error, but I have to check. Regards, Evandro $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Evandrojs it would make sense with bigger, heavier engines. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ For sure, @fooot. But even so, it is expected weight reduction on airframe with more composites. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Evandrojs the MAX didn't add a lot of new composites, besides the engines the only major structural changes were the improved winglets and area around the APU. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you, @fooot. The weight increase looks more reasonable now. $\endgroup$

I have found on Jane's database 45.065kg for OEW. And MZFW is 65.950kg. Doing the math, one get 20.885kg. So, Wikipedia info is quite good.
