Ethiopian Airlines CEO claims the airline “believes in Boeing” and pledges to work together to advance aviation safety. However, in the light of ET302 crash it appears that even if the carrier still believes in Boeing, it might not feel the same about its MAX planes. Here is why.
The Russian manufacturer Irkut is in hopes to seize new markets, as it reportedly discusses potential twinjet MC-21 orders with Indonesia. Garuda Indonesia just cancelled its Boeing 737 MAX orders and Lion Air is about to do the same – Irkut thinks there might be a chance for MC-21-300 to refill the hangars, as aircraft belongs to the same narrow-body category.
