Malaysia Airlines said Wednesday that it has suspended accepting 25 Boeing 737 MAX, explaining their refusal by the continuing ban on flights of this aircraft model.
This decision was another setback for Boeing, which on Tuesday reported its worst annual net orders over the past decade, and the lowest number of aircraft deliveries in 11 years, losing the world championship main competitor, the European Airbus.
Boeing was supposed to hand Malaysia Airlines its first 737 MAX in July 2020, but last year it became known that the suspension of flights of this model around the world could last until the autumn.
Analysts have said that carriers are experiencing a shortage of funds such as Malaysian Airlines, can take advantage of the situation with the 737 MAX to negotiate with Boeing on a restructuring of its orders.
last year, Virgin Australia Holdings Ltd said it will postpone the first deliveries of the 737 MAX two years to reduce capital expenditures.
last year, Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA announced that its subsidiary leasing subsidiary in Dublin have reached an agreement with Boeing about the delay of delivery of 14 aircraft 737 MAX, which were to be produced in 2020 and 2021.
on Tuesday, Boeing announced the abandonment of 183 orders for the 737 MAX in 2019, including the cancellation, but many have been associated with the collapse of a major client, the Indian Jet Airways Ltd.
the Government of Malaysia is looking for a buyer for the debt-Laden airline, which is not yet able to cope with the aftermath of two tragedies in 2014, when its flight MH370 disappeared, what remains a mystery, and flight MH17 was shot down over Eastern Ukraine.
