Qatar Airways is talking to Boeing about buying a large number of its 737 Max aircraft just weeks after it cancelled its order with Airbus, following delays in its delivery.
The Doha-based airline previously ordered 50 Airbus 320’s planes and was due to receive the first plane last year, but delays caused by issues with the aircraft Pratt & Whitney engines have meant that not one plane has been delivered to Qatar Airways.
Like the Airbus 320 the Boeing 737 is a single-aisle aircraft aimed @ offering higher fuel friendly eco-efficiency and performance. Boeing’s newest aircraft is scheduled for its first delivery in 2017 with customer Southwest Airlines.
