Indonesian Airline Cancels $5 billion Boeing 737 Max 8 Order


Garuda, Indonesia's flagship airline, canceled a $5 billion order of 49 Boeing 737 Max 8 jets in light of two deadly crashes within five months of each other. "Garuda passengers in Indonesia have lost trust and no longer have the confidence" in the plane, a spokesman for the airline told Agence France-Presse. This is the first time an airline has formally canceled an order of the jet model. It's not clear whether Garuda will order a different Boeing model or order from another manufacturer altogether.

  • Indonesian Airline Cancels Boeing Order, Citing Passenger Concerns

    According to a report by Reuters, Indonesian airline Garuda plans to cancel its 6 billion-dollar order for Boeing 737 MAX jets citing passengers who say they would be afraid to board the plane following two fatal crashes. In the United States, American Airlines pilots are prepared to test Boeing's planned software upgrade for an anti-stall system on MAX simulators this weekend, claiming they was their own stamp of approval on the fix. Reuters reports that the 737 MAX was Boeing's fastest selling jet before an Ethiopian Airlines crash near Addis Ababa on March tenth, five months after a Lion Air crash in Indonesia which reportedly has some frightening similarities to the recent disaster.

  • Boeing Makes Change, Indonesia Cancels Order

    JAKARTA/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Indonesian airline Garuda said on Friday it would cancel a $6 billion order for Boeing 737 MAX jets, citing concerns over passenger confidence, as Boeing tried to quell safety worries by making a previously optional cockpit warning light compulsory. National carrier Garuda is the first airline to publicly announce plans to scrap an order since a total of 346 people were killed in 737 MAX crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia, leading the world’s entire fleet of the aircraft to be grounded. Southeast Asia faces a glut of narrow-body aircraft like the 737 MAX and rival Airbus A320neo at a time of slowing global economic growth and high fuel costs.
