Boeing's crisis flies beyond its 737 MAX failures

Oman Air cancels 30 more flights

This showed a stumble in Boeing's deliveries, especially the commercial planes compared to the 184 commercial delivery in Q1 of 2018, 132 of which were new single-aisle 737s.

Boeing did not win any commercial orders for its 737 MAX jet in March following a second deadly crash involving the plane.

Some of the routes which are cancelled on both April 9 and 10 include Hyderabad, Dubai, Salalah, Kuwait, Bahrain, Dammam, Bombay, Riyadh and Nairobi. Two crashes, one in October previous year and another last month, killed 346 people and led to the grounding of the aircraft worldwide. The No. 1 USA carrier owns 24 of the brand-new Boeing Co aircraft whose use was suspended around the world in March.

A similar crash between the exact same Boeing model plane crashed in the waters murdering all 189 aboard.

On April 5, it said it planned to cut monthly 737 production to 42 planes from 52, and was making progress on a 737 MAX software update to prevent further accidents.

Deliveries are financially important because that is when plane makers receive the bulk of money from airlines' purchases.

Boeing slashes 737 MAX production
CEO Dennis Muilenburg added that Boeing was creating a committee to review how it designs and develops jets in order to ensure the "highest level of safety".

There were more than 300 Max jetliners in operation at the time of the fatal Lion Air crash last October, and about 4,600 more on order.

Speaking at an aviation conference in Atlanta, Bastian said Delta was "very interested" in Boeing's proposed new midsized airplane, though he said the world's largest planemaker was focusing first on dealing with the crisis surrounding the MAX. A total of 346 passengers and crew died in the crashes.

Boeing's shares, which have lost about 13% since the crash, were down 1.66 percent at $368.32 in afternoon trading.

Bastian has said that Delta was looking to replace some 200 Boeing 757 and 767 aircraft over the next decade as it seeks to grow internationally.

Airbus actually had worse first quarter orders for its A320, its 737 Max competitor.

The MAX grounding caused 1,200 American flight cancellations during the first quarter, in addition to 940 cancellations due to American's decision to remove 14 737-800 aircraft from service after pilots complained that overhead bins were not closing on some recently retrofitted cabins.
