Airlines Review Plans as Boeing Faces First Cancellation of 737 MAX Order

PT Garuda Indonesia on Friday became the first airline to pursue canceling its Boeing Co. 737 MAX jet order as other carriers move to limit damage to their flight plans and finances. Airlines are grappling with the likelihood of a protracted global grounding following two fatal crashes.

Garuda said passengers have lost confidence in the MAX after the aircraft model was involved in two crashes within five months that killed a combined 346 passengers and crew in Indonesia and Ethiopia.
