Boeing 737 MAX cancellations top 350 planes in first half of 2020
Boeing said it handed over 10 aircraft in June, up from four planes in May, and six jets in April. The company’s June deliveries include one 747, one 777, one KC-46 tanker, two 767 freighters, two P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft and three 787s.
The June cancellations came from aircraft-leasing firms, including U.S.-based Aviation Capital, Dublin-based Avolon, and Singapore’s BOC Aviation, which respectively scrubbed 5, 17 and 30 orders for the 737 MAX.
Romanian carrier Blue Air also canceled six 737 MAX orders, with another two 737 MAX orders halted by unidentified customers. ■
