Garuda Indonesia CEO says 'possibility' airline will cancel Boeing 737 MAX orders

JAKARTA (Reuters) - Garuda Indonesia’s chief executive said there is a “possibility” the airline will cancel its orders of Boeing Co’s 737 MAXs, with the final decision depending on what the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) does.

The 737 MAX has been banned from flying in most countries after an Ethiopian Airlines crash on Sunday that killed all 157 people on board. This was a second deadly incident involving the relatively new Boeing model in five months. In October, a Lion Air jet crashed in Indonesia killing all 189 people on board.

“Garuda is reconsidering its upcoming order of 20 Boeing 737 MAXs after the two Boeing crashes,” CEO Ari Askhara told reporters on Thursday, adding its only Boeing 737 MAX would stay grounded until “there’s notification from the FAA”.

The FAA grounded the 737 MAX on Wednesday over safety fears, and acting FAA administrator, Daniel Elwell, has said he does not know how long the U.S. grounding would last.

Askhara said his airline had decided to reduce the order from 49 “before the crashes”.

He told Reuters in February that the carrier wanted to swap some of its order for MAX 8s for widebody Boeing models.

Never a fansee of 737! In fact I dislike the 737 since mas’s 737-300. I am more of a wide body aircraft guy! Don’t like the A320 as well! Lol!

The A320 is the superior single aisle short haul aircraft tbh
The cabin is wider, engines quieter, it lands smoother than the 737

Why not. Singapore Airlines flying 2 A330 and A350 for SIN-KUL sectors daily.

But all down to the load you can filled up.

Not exactly a big loss for Boeing...

for a company like MAS which completely retired their 777 fleet (after the twin tragedies), after seeing these twin 737 Max8 tragedies

looks like they will go full Airbus. Dreamliner also cancel already.

The non-definitive response from Boeing is astounding.

After 2 incidents, it's not like bad weather, bird-strike, lightning, shot by terrorists, or some other conditions like rogue pilot, can explain it. So what happened?

Did they really try to compensate for bad physical design with "software", which made the wrong calls?
