Boeing delivery of 737 jets registers drastic fall in Q2 2019

Boeing delivery of 737 jets registers drastic fall in Q2 2019

Customers, including three of the four largest US airlines, have given no hint that they plan to nix orders from Boeing.

Boeing reported 239 commercial plane deliveries in the first half of the year, a 37% fall compared to 378 in the same period last year, highlighting the extent to which the crashes have had an impact on its reputation in the market.

Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri in a written reply in Rajya Sabha said that "18 Boeing 737 Max aircraft are grounded in the country, out of which 13 are from SpiceJet and five are from Jet Airways".

Last month, Jefferies analyst Sheila Kahyaoglu said she expected zero MAX deliveries in the second and the third quarters of 2019, with full-year MAX deliveries around 236.

In the quarter running April, May and June, combined deliveries of 737 models fell to just 24 from 137.

Airbus reported 88 net orders for H1, easily topping Boeing's net negative total of 119 aircraft because the latter suffered more cancellations than orders during the period.

Europe's largest budget carrier needs up to eight months to take delivery of some 50 newly built planes left at the factory by the grounding crisis, so it may have to trim its capacity growth plans for summer 2020 if 737 MAX flights have not resumed by November, Chief Executive Michael O'Leary told Reuters.

The gap in deliveries suggests Airbus has a strong chance of wrestling back the crown of world's biggest plane maker in 2019 after a seven-year gap.

American, so far, has taken 737 Max planes off its schedule through September 3.

A small number of airlines have threatened to cancel 737 Max orders since crashes off the coast of Indonesia and in Ethiopia killed 346 people. Boeing didn't count those as orders because the deal is not yet final. Oman Air said in June it would start talks with Airbus if Boeing didn't provide "support and recovery" for the 737 Max. While customer payments have slowed, Boeing is still building 737s at a 42-jet monthly clip and stockpiling completed airplanes around the Seattle area and as far afield as San Antonio, Texas.
