The final Delta Boeing is registered N930DZ, and was delivered to the airline approximately two weeks ago. Carriers rarely pay list prices.
"We remain confident in the 737 MAX's return to service".
Boeing disclosed in April that it has booked about $1 billion in charges related to fixing the plane.
Analysts have said non-Max operators such as Delta Air Lines Inc. are expected to do much better this year as they would benefit from reduced supply levels in the form of higher load factors and fares.
Ministry of Civil Aviation, India said U.S. airplane manufacturer Boeing is yet to submit a solution to enable its 737 Max aircraft to take to the skies again, and that the grounded aircraft will remain so until a certified fix is provided. With two disastrous plane crashes to the model's name, consumers have expressed worries about getting on the MAX plan again. Various surveys have indicated passenger reluctance.
"We continue to evaluate Boeing's software modification to the MCAS and we are still developing necessary training requirements. on the most recent issue, the FAA's process is created to discover and highlight potential risks", Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said, adding that it will lift the aircraft's prohibition order when it deems that it is safe to do so. Boeing hopes to submit a fix to regulators for review in September. Since then, Boeing has not reported any new order for the MAX planes.
Airbus has been ramping up the pressure on Boeing by pushing its best-selling A32neo, a direct rival to the Max, and publicly announcing an increase in production. It's a potentially troubling sign for Boeing, which has not seen customers divert orders to Airbus en masse.
"We wish the flyadeal team well as it builds out its operations", Boeing said. Boeing received a letter of intent from International Airlines Group for the purchase of 200 737 Max aircraft earlier this month.
Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg has apologized for the loss of lives and vowed to make the plane safer. That fund is unrelated to any potential losses from lawsuits filed by the families of victims. Boeing wa up 8.9 per cent so far this year through Monday, compared with a 19 per cent rise on the S&P 500 Index.
