Reuters exclusively reports Lion Air reviewing massive Boeing order

Reuters exclusively reported that Indonesia’s Lion Air is reviewing airplane purchases from Boeing Co and has not ruled out cancelling orders as relations worsen in a spat over responsibility for a 737 jetliner crash that killed 189 people in late October. No final decision has been made, but discussion over the fate of $22 billion of remaining orders highlights the stakes surrounding an investigation involving Boeing’s fastest-ever selling jet, the 737 MAX, which entered service last year. Lion Air has 190 Boeing jets worth $22 billion waiting to be delivered, on top of 197 already taken, making it one of the largest U.S. export customers.
